uhm.. you want to use /e/ which main goal is to live without google.... and you want to install google bloat and spyware on it? maybe read the Installation topic again?

if you really need gapps (really?) and so google crap then simply go with LOS instead.

:) i ve readed the post, of course, but I need to have an Google app for few apps, like maps and for install apps from play store that don t find on the e store...

you can install aurora which is connecting to google play store directly.
if the app does not work without gapps then choose LOS or wait until I had the time to test something (phonesky).

    This thread explains how you can make a vendor partition, if that's the only thing holding you back :D (check the install steps)

    On the other hand, is there a LOS for the J5 2017 based on android 10 ? Couldn't find any...

    ... What ?

    Most of the roms I found seem to be ports of Samsung roms, but I don't need Samsung bloatware...
    I'm currently using CrDroid, but the camera is stretched during video calls, that's why I'm asking if there are other roms based on Android 10 with a working camera.

    So, is there an Android 10 LOS rom for this phone ?

    good job.
    sounds and microphone not work on call
    camera show everything taller than real
    What was the last stock firmware you have flashed?
    The stretched preview on cam is a known bug but the taken images are with correct ratio.

    Hello,
    Very nice rom, working great, thank you for your work.
    Any news about getting it official?
    My plan on going offcial is:

    1. public testing (done)
    2. selinux = enforcing (<-- current WIP)
    3. public testing
    4. Going official
    5. Porting the j5 to the easy-installer

      The latest build from today (CUSTOM) contains the fix for the call issue.
      UNOFFICIAL build follows in approx 9 hours (otherwise I would overwrite the today's build..). Check my TG group for a notification.

      So if you are on UNOFFICIAL wait for the tomorrow build or switch to the CUSTOM one (wipe system partition before then).
      Pls note that CUSTOM from yesterday and UNOFFICIAL from today contains a fix regarding the OTA server access - so once flashed OTA will work again. I mentioned that in my TG channel.

      Anyhow, the problems is this: The standard Camera app from /e/OS takes photos just fine, but videos are corrupted somehow. Playback shows only a still image and video length is shown as 98 hours or something like that. Gallery app shows other videos just fine, and the corrupted videos cannot be played on laptop either, so the problem really happens when saving the video.

      The workaround I discovered was to install the CameraMX app from Apps. Videos taken by it are also corrupted, *but* if its FX mode is enabled, videos are saved correctly. Even if no effects are enabled.

      Well I cannot re-produce this issue here so logs are crucial important.
      Pls try it again on the latest build and follow FAQ #1 to provide the proper logs.

      * Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in the products you find here before flashing it!

      About /e/
      /e/ is an a mobile ecosystem (ROM + onlines services) that:

      • is open source
      • is pro-privacy
      • is compatible with most existing Android applications
      • cares about usability
      • is as far as possible freed from shackles by Google and OEMs
      • already exists!
      It’s the alternative to the Apple/Google duopoly on the smartphone.

      ... so again and just to be clear: /e/ is not just a ROM, it is more a complete privacy ecosystem and consists of:
      • an installable mobile operating system for smartphones, which is forked from Android and strongly “ungoogled”
      • a set of sorted and improved default open source applications
      • various online services that are linked to the mobile operating system, such as: a meta search engine for the web, drive (with synchronization), mail, calendar, notes, tasks.


      Features

      • Based on the stable Lineage OS
      • microG fully pre-installed with Signature Spoofing in restricted mode!
      • All features described on the /e/ page: What is e
      • All features and fixes of LineageOS
      • My builds come with full OTA update support :)
        ... you know that thing which informs you that a new update is there and where you just click to download + install ;)


      Difference from pure /e/ or: why are the builds UNOFFICIAL?

      • There are no differences. its pure /e/. just an unofficial build (if you want to have it official test my builds and report also SUCCESS! this ROM is currently awaiting to get approved by /e/ for official builds)


      Known issues:

      Keep in mind that this is brand new stuff so it may (still) contain unknown issues!
      So back up regularly and frequently!

      • When your current STOCK firmware or the latest you had flashed is not PIE (Android 9) then flash the following STOCK version: J530FXXS7CTF1 (pie)
      • selinux: permissive (will be set to enforcing once I got some user feedback if my build working as stable for others as for me)
      • If you find a bug not listed let me know and SHARE LOGS! -> READ FAQ#1 for how to provide proper logs.


      Requirements
      • Latest TWRP or SHRP build.
      • This ROM has been tested with stock firmware J530FXXS7CTF1 . If you use an older one switch to this first. If you have a newer one things might not work for you (like cam etc)
      • Do a full (i.e. Nandroid) backup before doing anything!


      Installation
      1. Full clean install as described here (FAQ #2) is highly recommended. DO NOT REPORT ISSUES when you have skipped that step!
      2. Flash /e/
      3. Optional (if you want root): Flash Magisk
      4. Flashing OpenGapps ????? NO No no! you don't want that on a google-free phone! /e/ contains everything you need to live without Google! So flashing OpenGapps on /e/ is like using a bit more secure LOS but that's not the point of /e/. Either try without or go with LOS (imho).
      5. Boot it (will take a bit on first boot!!! be patient!)
      6. Enjoy the most easy way to have a privacy focused and google-free phone!

      Thanks for your great rom. (y)I have installed it on a space locked J5, and now there are 9GB free flash space, this is great!
      At the moment I see two minor problems:
      Is it some hoe possible to fix the mac address for known networks. At the moment I get a new mac after each reboot.
      Volte looks disabled with this rom. Is there a possibility to enable volte?
      Thanks again for your great work.
