I tried all variations possible. Dirty, clean, with gapps and without, and all combinations thereof. None would get past the boot animation.

Really weird, it worked fine for me on every version. But I am using it as a music player without a sim, so I have no idea if phone functionality works.

New build is up!

Hey there!

That was quite a long time since the last release of LOS 16.0.
Anyway I managed to get a new kernel to work on this device (which hopefully should fix the most of bugs I wasn't able to fix long time).

Changelog

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.

Great. Everything OK now.

Do you think latest magisk also works? And flashing in twrp vor magisk module?

Thanks for awsome works mate

I wasn't using Magisk for a while, so Idk, maybe anyone else can confirm.

Edit: magisk up to date

Why do you used September security patch mate? December already out now..
Have spent a lot of time getting to work the basic ROM functionality with a new kernel, so I didn't really notice that sources are outdated.
I will probably do source update on the next release.

I really appreciate your work. As I mentioned already thank you so much for your effort on this old device mate ??

4.12.2019 - build #3 seems to be super-smooth.

but there are serious problems:

* no sound, when you are making a call (the call is connected, but you can't hear anyone on the other end). basically, you can't use your S3 as a phone with this firmware
* when the phone is connected to PC via USB cable, the phone is not charging. only discharging. but USB connection is working, and charging icon is active. standard charging from wall power works fine
* the phone is rebooted, when performing mass file operations via ADB
* no LED notifications from Light Flow
* no notifications from Gmail (Gmail notifications finally started to appear, but they seem to be delayed)

Thanks for reporting :)
Indeed, I didn't test the incall audio as I'm not using this phone for calls.
I'll see if I can fix that.

Installed only ROM plus open gapps pico.
Keep getting bootloop to recovery
I just tested a clean installation with Gapps (no issues with booting to the system).
It would be helpful if everyone who had encountered boot issues also report such information as:
- Wifi chip (murata or semcosh)
- Whether the phone has front camera working (at least on other ROMs)

    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.

    • Sometimes (rarely) magnetometer doesn't work

    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.

    New build is up!

    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.
