LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.


What doesn't work :

Instructions :
  • Download the latest build and gapps
  • Reboot to recovery
  • Flash the latest build and gapps
  • Reboot

Downloads :

Reporting Bugs
  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
  • 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.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log

Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

Congrats devs :D
Everything except the cam and fingerprint reader as mentionned is working pretty well :good:
In general, the animations/transitions have some latency but it's ok for an alpha build.
Note for users that iris recognition isn't working because of AOSP limitation for now.

If you want to test it safely, you can use this dual boot guide : https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...t/patcher-dualboot-multiboot-samsung-t3683203

first of all: thank you devs for taking on our beloved device!:good:
since open source is the only true sauce, i cannot wait see the progress.

to help you there:
- all the things Alek7 said
- USB-C to HDMI not working(NOT Dex mode, just screenmirroring through cable)
- the in-screen "homebutton": when device is locked you can press it and feel the feedback, but no action. when screen is on -> no response at all.
- wi-fi not working: when i switch it on it turns off again after a second. no amount of clean and/or dirty flashes solves it. flashing different modem versions doesnt help either. only solution is flashing a wifi fix from yash92dusters' lightrom. i cant find it there anymore since it was an older build. funnily enough i had the exact same issue on deluxerom 9.3 and not on lightrom, for what the fix was intended for.

thanks again. once the camera is working i can finally stick to LOS.

I tested last night, had no issues with WiFi (although my test was only for about an hour). The only things I found not working are the ones reported (camera, fingerprint and home button wake up), very good build considering the first one.
Unfortunately for me, camera is a deal breaker so I'm back to my usual for now but will test each release.

Hey guys. Its true. The Wifi problem exists only for some people. Like i said, i didnt have that problem on lightrom even though the fix was made for it. Unfortunately it is deleted from that post and i cant figure out how to make attachements to post it here:confused::p
Edit: if u have that issue it appears immediately or not at all.

For people having the wifi bug, please update your bootloader and modem to latest versions available (be careful not to install Pie versions if you want to rollback to Samsung Oreo one day) and perform dalvik cache & cache wipe after installing LOS and before rebooting your device
