open the file recovery.tar.md5 as an archive using 7zip, get recovery.img and flash it via the Flashify app on the smartphone. (Google translation)

Just a quick question since i'm considering buying the S5 mini. Is this ROM sitll being worked on or will it stay in beta?

I will post an update to the ROM once in a week (maybe 2-week period from time to time). Though CTXz marked it as beta, it is pretty stable. There are still a few known bugs with the device specific part:
  • mediaserver crashing sometimes, resulting in battery drain and disabling the camera ; workaround: reboot or use app like mediaserver killer
  • only in this ROM: screen flickering sometimes (might be bliss bug, but I expect it to be device specific)
the problem is, that at the moment we lack skilled and experienced develpopers for the device. most of us, that are keeping the roms up-to-date, just started working on android and making progress takes some time.
If getting Bliss ROM updated is enough to convince you buying the phone, then go ahead. There are, however, phones that have way better development. Maybe, as this community is making progress in programing and android related stuff, the development here will improve, but for the moment you will have to stick with what is offered. :good:

Flickering and media server issue are present in Resurrection R. also (tested) then i think that problem is in cm base....

Firstly, let me thank you for the detailed answer. :good: That does sound actually really good!
Secondly, since buying a new smartphone is a decision that is about "a lot" of money and i want to make this decision on a solid base, what phones would you recommend going for instead?
The only criteria for me besides a sufficient amount of hardware power is a screen that is not too big (Let's say somewhere around 4"-5").

Curently the best choice is the OnePlus X in my opinion, I am considering to buy it myself.

MAN COME ON ! Blissrom is the best ROM so far in the S5 Mini !

Is this true?

I have just bought myself a S5 Mini 800Y and want to put a decent custom ROM on it. I did try the 5.0 Bliss ROM for the Moto Razr M and whilst it was quite smooth and many features were working well, it had too many random crashes. It was just not suitable as a day-to-day working ROM (used official CM11 in the end). So this is my question: How stable is it? I can live with the odd hiccup, but if it's too flaky and/or development won't go much further (like with the Razr M) than I'd rather not go to the trouble. Any advice, including alternatives, would be much appreciated!

Dude, Bliss ROM is one the best one i've test so far, but just because I like to modify my phone how I like. If you are looking for the BEST, STABLE and FAST you should try Slim 6. For me it's the best ROM for S5 Mini. Other ROM's like Resurrection or TipsyOS (TipsyOS is really good, but it has a really small bugs that I don't like (Like earphones don't work)) are stable and Fast too, but not like Slim 6 and they are most likely made for people who isn't looking perfomance and speed but customization on their phones. The problem of Slim 6 is the lack of customization, but, I don't mind because I rather have perfomance than features. If you decided to download and Slim 6 and want to hide the Nav Buttons, open Build.Prop and add this: qemu.hw.mainkeys=0
Then you are done.

Thanks for the tip, so I had a look....

....but only found two Slim6 threads for the S5 Mini, one for the 800H and one for the 800F. I have the 800Y, is there another version or is the 800F also suitable for the Y??? Also, reading the description of it being in alpha stage and bare bones, etc., I think it's a tad too basic and not quite there yet.

I am actually leaning more towards Bliss now. The reason why I am hesitating is that my previous experience with a Bliss ROM (Razr M) involved a lot of random crashes and reboots. So whilst it may be the best in terms of features, customisation, etc. how reliable is it on a day-to-day basis???

Well, I wouldn't recommend Bliss for daily-driver as it's buggy and will ran of perfomance after a week (I don't really know the reasons. Maybe cache partition or something else) but you should give it a try and see how it goes. Also, you should try CM13, is good tho but lack of features. I'll help you finding a stable and fast for the Y model, as it is really lack of ROM's for it.

I believe that the G800F version of Slim 6 will work for the G800Y. Do a little research if you decide to use it though as I'm not 100% on that.
I am not currently running slim,but I believe I will end up using it. IMO it is by far the fastest,smoothest ROM for our device.However,as mentioned the customization options are limited at this point. It is still in alpha,but its very stable and they are updating weekly (I am trying to keep up as well,at least every other update) More options are becoming available.

Cheers! I might head over that thread and see whether anybody can confirm that it will work on the Y. I am happy to give up a few features for stability!

After looking at a comparison chart of the F and Y variants they seen to be exactly the same phone, only for different regions (the F being Europe)
Maybe someone can confirm this.

The only difference between the models as far as I can tell are the supported LTE bands, everything else seems to be identical!

Anyway, thanks for the help. I'll head over to the Slim6 thread now....

Hey folks,

sorry for the long delay, I have been and still will be very busy with a fulltime-job over my semester break.
Anyways, I have managed to build a new update to the ROM. Once again, just synced with latest Bliss sources.

Official Bliss ROM changelog

Credits, as always, to hennymcc for setting up the device tree for the phone, CTXz for his initial work to get Bliss ROM running on the phone, Spookcity138 for reverting some changes on the device tree and thus getting rid of the "robotic voice issue" and of course Bliss ROM team for their sources.

Cheers and have fun :fingers-crossed:

    This is a unofficial Bliss 6.2 ROM for the Exynos3470 based Samsung Galaxy S5 mini (G800F/G800M/G800Y) by
    hennymcc and CTXz.​


    DO NOT USE IT FOR G800H OR YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE

    Although G800F and G800H share the same name they are not related in terms of hardware due to the different SoCs used (Exynos vs. Snapdragon).
    Hence please do not ask for support or ROMs for the G800H.

    Working features
    • Internal Root
    • Brightness slider
    • Option to use soft keys
    • Additional settings (Buttons menu in settings)
    • HW accelerated GUI
    • Camera (pictures+video: Back+Front)
    • MTP storage
    • Flash Light
    • Bluetooth (A2DP, HFP, HID)
    • IR
    • Lock Screen
    • Sound
    • SMS
    • Wifi
    • Mobile Data
    • USB-OTG (Keyboard, Mouse, USB-Audio, Mass-Storage)
    • NFC
    • Hardware sensors (Orientation, Compass, Proximity, Acceleration, Hall sensor, Step counter)
    • Light sensor (needed for auto-brightness)
    • Pulse sensor (preliminary and very inaccurate. Works with Apps like Kardiograph)
    • SD-Card as internal storage (new Android M feature)
    • GPS
    • Fingerprint scanner
    • Recieving Calls

    Non-working features:
    • SELinux

    Disclaimer:
    • You flash this image at your own responsibility. I am not responsible for any damage that might be caused by flashing this image (bricked device, lost data, ...)
    • Flashing this kernel image will trigger the KNOX counter, so your warranty will be void.
    • Applications that use KNOX (e.g. "Private Mode") might not work anymore when returning to the stock ROM, as the device is regarded as compromised. Do not flash this ROM if you need those applications.
    • The image is only for Exynos3470 based S5 Mini variants SM-G800F/M/Y.
    • It might be instable, crash your device, drain your battery, or even might damage your smartphone (e.g. if an USB-OTG device drains too much power)
    • Some users reported that their touch-screen stopped working permanently after some weeks of usage. For some user's (two at the moment including me) NFC stopped working permanently. Probably this issues are not related to this ROM as also many stock user's complain about hardware issues (random reboots, black screens, unresponsive touchscreen) but you have been warned.
    • Backup your data before flashing and check if the original firmware is present (e.g. at SamMobile)
    Before you start:
    • Backup your data, like call history, contacts, sms, WhatsApp messages, favourite app settings that are on internal and external sd (by using Titanium Backup or other apps available on PlayStore). At least all internal data will be lost in any case. If you have bad luck you might also loose data from your external sd card.

    Download:

    Install recovery:
    • Reboot your device into Odin mode: turn off your device, then press Volume-Down + Home + Power button at the same time and release them.
    • Confirm the following warning message with the Volume-Up button.
    • Connect your device to your PC via USB
    • Make sure the device driver's are installed on your PC
    • Start Odin
    • In Odin select PDA and select the recovery image (recovery.tar.md5)
    • Check that only "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" is set
    • Click on "Start": the kernel image should be flashed now and the device should reboot afterwards. By flashing the recovery, your warranty will be void.
    • After the recovery flashing process was successful, power of your device. If not restart into Download mode and flash again or flash the stock rom.

    Before you flash:
    • You need the latest TWRP recovery (see above). Otherwise TWRP might not be able to flash the ROM. This is because TWRP checks now if the device is "supported".
    • Wipe the device to avoid problems with remaining files from the old installation (see instructions below). This also applies if you already installed an older version of Bliss or any other CM based ROM

    Flash Bliss:
    • Reboot into recovery mode (Press Volume-Up + Home + Power button)
    • If you come from a stock ROM, this is your opportunity to make a Backup of your phone(Backup, then select Boot, System, Data, then swipe to backup). Note that the recovery might fail to restore the backup when you want to go back to the stock ROM (for me it got stuck after a restore during boot. But the backup was made with a different version of TWRP, so it might work in general) - simply do not expect too much of it at the moment.
    • If you haven't copied the installation files yet, you can now copy the GApps and CyanogenMod zip to your internal sd or external sd (be careful not to put the files into the data directory of the internal sd card as this will be deleted in the next step). Be sure that MTP is enabled (inside Mounts, click on Enable MTP), then, from your pc, copy the files. If MTP does not work from recovery, try it directly from Android or remove the external sd card from the phone and put it into your PC.
    • Wipe Dalvik Cache, Cache, System and Data (inside Wipe -> Advanced Wipe). Do not report problems if you did not wipe those partitions as the problems are most probably related to this!
    • Install the Bliss 6.2 ROM zip-package
    • Install the GApps zip-package

    How to root:
    No SuperSu is needed as CyanogenMod already comes with integrated root support. Root access is disabled by default.
    You normally do not need root access. If you want to activate root access for apps, do the following:
    • Open the Settings menu, select "About Phone"
    • Tap on the "Build number" entry seven times. You should be notified, that the developer settings are now active.
    • Open the Settings menu, select "Developer options". Enable root access by selecting "Apps" in the "Root-Access" setting.

    In case you want to go back to the stock ROM:
    • lf you do not have the latest ROM for the G800F you can download it from SamMobile
    • Reboot your phone into Odin mode
    • Open Odin on your PC and connect your smartphone with your PC via USB
    • If you have a zip-file unzip it so that you have a .tar.md5 file
    • In Odin click on the PDA button and select the .tar.md5 file. Then press "Start".
    • Normally the stock rom fails to boot as the data from Bliss is still on the data partition. So after flashing the stock rom, reboot into recovery mode (it looks a bit different now). First wipe the data partition, then wipe the cache.
    • Reboot

    Developers welcome
    • At the moment the G800F/M/Y specific port of this ROM is only done by two persons (CTXz and hennymcc). Although Unjustified Dev also works on this ROM he does not own an Galaxy S5 Mini but a Galaxy Light which has a similar base but is different when it comes to camera, nfc and other components (maybe even slightly when it comes to audio and radio).
    • Help from other developers is always welcome. See the bug/feature section and this thread to see what is missing. Just give some short info (here in this thread or PM) that you want to work on some issue or feature so that work can be synchronized. Maybe there are also other devs that want to work with you on the same issue.
    • Knowledge in how the kernel works and good programming skills in C, C++ and Java would be nice but not necessary for all problems. At least you should be able to build the ROM and test your changes yourself but you do not need experience in porting ROMs.

    Thanks to Psyafter for some patches and working on the G800F.
    Thanks to Unjustified Dev from Team Regular for the initial work to get the G800F ready with CM.

    I have made a new update to the ROM.

    Hey guys, I have finally managed to make a new build. @CostasGr

    I have not yet been able to test it in depth. But at least I can confirm its booting and I didnt encounter any obvious bugs.
    As I have used the device tree from @spookcity138 there shouldnt be any issues regarding mic or robotic voice.

    Only thing updated in this build is that I synced with Bliss sources (so actually its Bliss ROM 6.4 now). So for a detailed changelog you should google for official BlissROM changelog.
    Thanks and credits to @hennymcc for the original set-up of the device tree, @CTXz for original port of Bliss ROM (safed me quiet some time), the BlissROM team for there sources and Spookcity138 for reverting some changes to get rid of the robotic voice issue as well as mic issues and helping me with some build errors.

    I have built another update to the ROM. I didnt change anything, just synced with Bliss Sources.

    Download-Link
    Official Bliss ROM changelog: Link

    I am not sure about the screen flickering...either it is an issue in the Bliss sources, then it might be fixed in future updates. Or it has to be in the kernel used to build Bliss as this is the only part different from the other ROM releases by Spookcity. It will take some time until I would be able to take a look into the kernel (lack of skill). Either someone more experienced will take a look into it or you guys will have to stick with that issue for the moment.

    Cheers =)

    Hey there,

    I have synced with bliss sources again and did a new update for the ROM. Have fun with it =)
    Thanks and credits as always to CTXz for porting Bliss ROM, hennymcc for setting up the device tree and spookcity138 for his work on the device tree :good:

    I will try to do the future updates closer to the beginning of the month, so you guys wont have to wait so long for the monthly security patches from google ;)
