Official support for the s10 and note 10 family is coming soon! thanks linux4
This is fabulous, thanks @Linux4 !

One question: I see that the installation guide (both on this thread and on the official Lineage website) does not mention anymore flashing the vbmeta.img file together with the recovery, as in:

heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img --VBMETA vbmeta.img --no-reboot

Does that mean that it is not required anymore to flash it separately?

Yes it's no longer required.
If you only flash recovery you don't need the disabled vbmeta image, and the ROM zip already includes the one you'll need for the ROM to boot

Hi @Linux4

Thank you for your work.

Briefly, for beyond0lte there was a release on LOS Official https://download.lineageos.org/beyond0lte it seems to be pulled down as it;s not available anymore.

While it was available, I installed successfully. What would I need to do once the Official release is back up again? or will I just need to do a normal update via System > Updater, thanks

Red.

Samsung Galaxy S10e
Hi folks. It's me again, the one guy who kept complaining about random resets. I finally figured out how to prevent this from happening.

I primarily use wireless charging for charging the device and let the device "be" for hours on it. Most things I can access through my PC (e-mail, calls, whatsapp, etc). When it is on this charger the device used to randomly reset every now and then.

After installing ACC:
And setting a config using ACCA:
To 5-85-90 (shutdown, start, stop) I no longer got resets.

It seems that the random resets have to do with the battery being near full and being on a wireless charger.

Is there anyone else who can test this?

For me this is an acceptable solution as I wanted to have ACC anyways to improve battery life.
You mean with "resets" that you have to make a complete reinstall?
Holy ****, I was wondering if I am the only one having these problems. As I care about 3 S10e for my family, and I had that problem already on all 3 devices (seeming) randomly this was not a problem especially on my device.

And I want to say again: I don't want to blame Linux4 because I love his work and I am very happy to have somebody caring about S10e! He just didn't believed me in first step and I was & am still not able to prove him (due to my lack of Android-knowledge).

Yesterday I had the problem again on one of the phones. And I am know pretty sure, it's somehow related to an empty battery. Meaning: When I start the phone, and the battery is already empty it will crash/shut off during boot. And then, I will never be able to boot again. So I have to start at the beginning and do a Factory Reset.

So my question: Do I understand, you have the same/simliar problem with a full battery? Because it's me, the guy how was complaining in Telegram Chat about randomly resets xD

I took my problem to the telegram chat and we figured out what the problem was, when the device was idle and charging there was a critical buck in my gapps that caused the google drive (presumably sync) to crash the device. With crash I mean a soft-reset, only need to unlock the phone.
This is very annoying as I was effectively unreachable at that time.
After some suggested fixes (which didn't work) we decided to do a clean reinstall, that fixed it.

Sorry, not the same problem as you have.

But then again, I don't think my phone's battery has ever went below 20%...

Sorry, noob here. May I know how to move a bit the wifi, signal bar, battery icons? Am using S10+, and those icons were covered by the cameras cut out. Thank you.
I have been using this ROM for 4 months and I got the s10+ too! And never had that issue on this ROM. Maybe you flashed Lineage OS from another developer? Join the telegram group, we can help you understand more! Best regards.

The question that remains is why the S10e disappeared from the downloads at the official LineageOS site. And, will it be back?

See

So yes it will be back and in fact the reason it got removed was nothing specific to our devices.

Thank you so much, @Linux4!
I have three S10+ phones, all of which are running the unofficial Whatawurst ROM. I am replacing one of them now with a new one as it is faulty. Just realised that this model is SM-G976U, all the others are G975F/DS. It seems that the only difference between U and F models is the missing dual SIM functionality and added FM radio on the U.

Is this ROM compatible with the U variant?
Right now I am trying to unlock the bootloader but OEM unlock is not available. This is of course a separate issue but before I continue it would be good to know if this ROM can actually be supported on this phone.

Thanks!

G975U is snapdragon which also explains why you got no OEM unlock option
So no it's not supported, sorry

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, 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.

    Instructions:
    • Follow the instructions here

    Downloads:

    Reporting Bugs
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
    • DO NOT Report bugs if you're using TWRP
    • 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.

    Requirements:
    • Any Q or R based firmware installed on your device.

    Pre-Install Instructions

    Warning: The following instructions will unlock the bootloader and wipe all userdata on the device.

    1. Connect the device to a Wi-Fi network.
    2. Enable Developer Options by pressing the “Build Number” option in the “Settings” app within the “About” menu
      • From within the Developer options menu, enable OEM unlock.
    3. Power off the device, and boot it into download mode:
      • With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Bixby and connect USB cable to PC.
      • Now, click the button that the onscren instructions coorelate to “Continue” and/or “Unlock Bootloader”.
    4. Your device will reboot, you may now unplug the USB cable from your device.
    5. The device will demand you format userdata, please follow the onscreen instructions to do so.
    6. Run through Android Setup skipping everything you can, then connect the device to a Wi-Fi network.
    7. Re-enable Development settings by clicking the “Build Number” option 10 times, in the “Settings” app within the “About” menu, and verify that “OEM Unlock” is still enabled in the “Developer options” menu.

    Installing LineageOS for the first time
    1. Flash lineage recovery
      Only the provided lineage recovery will be supported,
      using TWRP might result in a possible data loss!!

      If using Odin rename the lineage recovery image for your model to recovery.img and add it to a .tar archive using e.g 7zip.
      If using Heimdall use: heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img --no-reboot
    2. Boot lineage recovery
      IMPORTANT: Do not boot into system again before booting recovery, or system will restore stock recovery!
      If using Odin untick auto-reboot before flashing.
      After flashing reboot by pressing Volume Down and Power for approximately 7 seconds,
      immediately hold Volume Up, Bixby and Power to boot recovery
      IMPORTANT: As of OneUI 3 your device needs to be connected to a PC via USB cable in order to be able to
      boot recovery via Volume Up, Bixby and Power.
    3. Factory reset using Factory reset -> Format data/factory reset
      Warning: Unlike TWRP this will also erase internal storage!
    4. Sideload LineageOS by enabling sideload via Apply Update -> Apply from ADB
      Then run adb sideload <path to your lineage.zip> on your PC
      Optional:
    5. Sideload GApps and magisk by repeating above step
      with their zip/apk

    Magisk
    As this ROM has a working ramdisk sideloading the magisk apk is enough, just as it is
    on every other device, no bootimage with magisk included or installing to recovery is needed!
