After ~3hrs of testing i found another bug.

If you want to Restart or Shut down the Phone, it stucks at "Reboot.."
Then you have to press "Power + Vol Down" to restart.

Thanks!

I tried to compile the LOS gsi, but my pc didn't like the phh script and i have very limited time to debug why it fails.

No time to test your build right now (though i i'm planning to use as daily driver from the new year), but i got a few questions regarding functionality:
- Do the dual sim, sd card, mtp, camera, lockscreen features work?
- Is it possible to install a new-ish gcam under LOS?
- Also, would it be possible to compile LOS 8.1 and just add the fm radio firmware from samsung stock to fix fm issue?

Hello, Thanks for your reply. Lockscreen, dual sim, mpt, camera works. Well this is 64bit rom it supports GCAM but the camera HALs needs remake for GCAM (you can take black pictures on GCAM)

Almost all samsung apps require Samsung Frameworks but I am not gonna do it.

I see, thanks.

Another question:
I'm still on OREO. I guess the BL binary 4 requirement mentioned in the first post is the PIE BL binary?
So i'd have to first flash the latest PIE stock?
From what i see over at ashyx's TWRP thead, it is possible to install TWRP on latest PIE, but not to root afterwards.
So, since from your answer to wafelciooo above, it seems clear that magisk can be installed, what did i get wrong?

I will probably boot on any bootloader. But things line telephony, wi-fi might not work because of uncompatible firmware.
It's possible to make it work properly on any firmware although not implemented yet.

    So, i upgraded to pie and tested your build.
    In general, i'm happy, but there are some issues in addition to the ones you mention in the OP.

    Specifically:
    - sd card over MTP is not detected (workaround: it is detected when booting to TWRP).
    - Non English characters (greek in my case) in files are not correctly shown.
    - seandroid permissive policy (AFAIU required to fix lockscreen bug if rooted).
    - and of course BT and FM nonfunctional as already stated.

    I appreciate your work, but you should state all of the above in that post.

    SD-CARD MTP workarround:

    Install Magisk "ExSDCard Access Enabler" module

    That worked for me

    Can you make this for the A600FN, I will happily test if needed?
