IMPORTANT INFORMATION


Hi all,


This is an unofficial Pie build for the Galaxy S3 (i9300) based on LineageOS 16.0.


Most of the ROM features are working, but the overall state might be not stable or not suitable for a daily use. This is an alpha quality build. Don't install this ROM as your daily driver.

This work is heavily based on works of forkbomb444 (thanks for device tree, kernel and device patches for LOS 14.1), rINanDO (thanks for device tree, kernel and device patches for LOS 16.0) and A$teroid (thanks for cherry-picks I took from his kernel).

What is working:
  • Boots
  • Audio (playback && recording)
  • Bluetooth
  • Graphics
  • Camera
  • Sensors
  • RIL (SMS, mobile data, calls)
  • Wifi
  • USB
  • Video playback (HW/SW)

What is not working:

  • GPS
  • SIM PIN unlock doesn't work
  • maybe yet something

Reporting bugs

When reporting reboots, please produce log below as follows
(using adb or terminal)
Code:
su
cat /proc/last_kmsg > /sdcard/last_kmsg.txt
and attach in this thread.

If reporting another issues
Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
A rough timestamp of when the issue occurred is also useful.

to quickly & easily capture logcat (Main log), Kernel log (dmesg) & Last Kernel log (last_kmsg which is important in case of unwanted reboot) without using a computer + adb or use a Terminal emulator on the phone:
  1. Root the phone
  2. Developer Options > Store logger data persistently on device > select All. More info about it here on developer.android.com
  3. Install the free SysLog. (screenshot)

    View attachment 4644180
  4. Reboot the phone & reproduce the problem(s).
  5. Open Syslog & select logcat, dmesg & last_kmsg. Add some significant keywords in the bottom including in Notes describing the bug & hit Take log.
  6. The individual logs + a .zip of all of them will be saved in /sdcard/Syslog. You must rename them .txt to be able to attach them to an XDA post like logcat.log > logcat_log.txt for example. Or you can choose Share which will .zip them & then you can attach to a post or upload somewhere & link to in your post if the .zip is too big for XDA's attachment service (20 MB max).
Done! And make the dev happy. :cool:
***

Bug Reports & Logs?
If the phone is not rooted you can grant this permission to enable Syslog using ADB (15 seconds ADB Installer) & a computer:
  • adb shell pm grant com.tortel.syslog android.permission.READ_LOGS
You can also install an app like MatLog to analyse the logcat, filter it, search in it, export files etc but Syslog is fast & easy. If not rooted grant permission for MatLog:
  • adb shell pm grant com.pluscubed.matlog android.permission.READ_LOGS
***

SIM PIN code unlock feature is disabled to locking issues in build #6. Make sure to unlock the SIM PIN before flashing this build.

6.12.2019 - build #4

  • Sources update (November 2019 ASB)
  • Fix unlocking SIM PIN (credits to @rINanDO)
  • Fix incall audio

Known bugs:
  • GPS
  • Gralloc sometimes runs out of ION memory. This can cause uncorrect work of some WebView or 3D applications.

4.12.2019 - build #3

This build is using a new kernel (LK 3.18.140). The main differences I would like to list are following:
  • more adequate CPUfreq driver (no governors like PegasusQ are included, the default CPU governor is Ondemand).
  • CPUidle fixes (power consumption in deepsleep should be better than in 3.4 kernel)
  • possibly, better memory management (but don't expect too much, this ROM is really heavy for that small amount of RAM)

Known bugs:
  • GPS
  • Gralloc sometimes runs out of ION memory. This can cause uncorrect work of some WebView or 3D applications.


9.03.2019 - build #2

  • A long list of fixes that are common with LOS 15.1 (see "Known Issues" below)
  • Updated sources to 9.0.0_r31
  • PowerHAL improvements (credits to @rINanDO for original code)
  • Increase memory heap size for Gapps (credits to @linusdan)
  • Kernel init.d script 94kernel is moved as /vendor/etc/init/tweaks.rc
  • Removed in-built SU

Known Issues
  • Graphical artifacts *
  • Camera often freezes when starting video record
  • Sometimes (rarely) magnetometer doesn't work
  • Maybe more
There is also a rare bug with PackageInstaller that prevents installer window to be minimized (which is probably related to our buggy graphics libs).
Warning: I have not tested installation with Gapps, but according to S2 thread, Gapps installation can cause some device lagging during the startup.


5.12.2018 - build #1

  • initial release

This work is heavily based on works of forkbomb444 (thanks for device tree, kernel and device patches for LOS 14.1), rINanDO (thanks for device tree, kernel and device patches for LOS 16.0) and A$teroid (thanks for cherry-picks I took from his kernel).

What is working:
Boots
Audio (playback && recording)
Bluetooth
Graphics
Camera (photos only)
Sensors
RIL (SMS, mobile data, calls)
Wifi
USB
Video playback (HW/SW)


What is not working:

Video recording
HW video playback might be not working for a certain video codecs types
Screenshots
Sensors (accelerometer & magnetometer)
GPS
AppOps is broken, every app can get root capabilities without user confirmation. I probably should repeat again, don't use this ROM if S3 is your main phone.
maybe yet something

    Hi, a lot of time spent since the latest release :)
    A lot of stuff have been fixed, but because I feel there are still some hard-to-debug bugs left, I'll leave the status of the build as Alpha (at least until I figure out a full list of bugs).

    Mr @ChronoMonochrome
    Given that the lineageos team has begun merging LOS 16 to LOS 17 ...
    Will you be back to this device(S3 i9300) with Android 10?

    I have already attempted booting Android 10 preview, but haven't had enough luck to manage it pass the bootanimation.
    Another good news: many developers are still working on exynos4 mainline kernel, e.g. ReplicantOS team and even some people from CAF.
    So we probably must see some great things will come soon to this device.
