    I am not responsible if flashing this ROM bricks your
       phone or causes thermonuclear war  and ends the
        world as we know it. You have been warned.

    ROM Information

    Device Names

    Verify your device codename before downloading any firmwares or recovery images!

    Installation via recovery (TWRP/LineageOS Recovery)
    * Download a recent .zip file from the links above for your device.

    * Reboot into recovery mode [Press Power+Volume Up+Home].

    * Wipe your data and cache partition (equivalent to doing a Factory Reset)
    if you are coming from a stock ROM.

    * Either: Plug in your phone into your computer, copy the zip file to a location on your Internal or External Storage on a device, click Install on TWRP on your phone and locate the zip file in the phone, or:

    * Plug in your phone into your computer, and open Advanced->ADB Sideload on TWRP on your phone and swipe the slider to enter sideload mode.
    Then open a command prompt/terminal on your computer in the folder you put the file by Shift-Clicking (Shift+Right Click) and selecting "Open Command Prompt/Terminal Here" (you will need to have adb installed) and type:

    adb sideload name_of_zip.zip

    to sideload the file. Replace name_of_zip.zip with the name of the file. If you are running Linux you may need to type adb kill-server and use sudo adb sideload if you get an `Insufficient Permissions` error.

    * Download and flash GApps in the same way.

    How to provide logcats

    Under Windows:

    [B]* Install samsung device drivers and then
     the adb utils from here:[/B]
    [b]* Then enable developer mode, connect your phone to usb,
     and from [B]cmd[/B] paste this command:[/b]
    [I]adb logcat > %userprofile%/Desktop/logcat.txt[/I]
    [b]then try to reproduce the bug.[/b]
    [b]* The logcat file will be on your desktop.[/b]

    Under Linux:

    [b]* Install the adb utils from your distribution's
     package manager and execute the command:[/b]
    [I]adb logcat > ~/logcat.txt[/I]
    [b]then try to reproduce the bug.[/b]
    [b]* The logcat file will be on your home directory.[/b]

    * Create a bug report at https://bugs.msm8916.com/ and paste the logcat there.

    * If you cant connect the device through adb on windows because the drivers, connect the device over wifi, enable adb over network on the quick setting tiles, and type:

    adb connect [ip address here]

    And then the adb logcat command for windows.


    * Supports both MM/LL bootloaders.
    * OMS/Substratum theming support.
    * The usual LineageOS features.
    * All builds support over-the-air updates.


    Q: Are you taking device requests?
    A: If and only if the device is using an msm8916 chip, and you're willing to buy me/donate the device for testing, sure.

    Q: But I don't have that kind of money! What else?
    A: Alternatively, if you're skilled with Linux and adb, and have an unsupported device, if you're willing to work with me as a tester, that works as well.

    Q: Are you accepting feature requests?
    A: Unless you're willing to implement it yourself, no.

    Q: Can you make XXX ROM as well as LOS?
    A: Unless more people donate, no. I simply don't have the time to maintain more than LOS nor money to hold that many ROMs on my already (tiny) struggling server.

    Q: Can I throw money at you?
    A: Most certainly. Donations are always welcome.

    You want to help?

    • We need hardware power to get the builds done.
      If you want to help us go faster, send a PM to @kentone or
      @vince2678. Your computer will act as a client for our jenkins server.

    • In a perfect world, that would be all, but unfortunately no. We need money to keep the server running and keep bringing these ROMs.
    • As always, logcat any problem you find.

    PLEASE, don't PM @vince2678, as he's busy right now, and your questions can be not answered. PM @kentone instead, write here on the post, or on the telegram group, your questions will be responded as soon as we can ;) Understand that we have family, studies and jobs aside of this project. Thanks for your understanding :)

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Rear camera focus and flash should be working in the latest builds. [/B]

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Added KeyDisabler. For devices with touch keys controlled separately
      from the touch screen, this means that the virtual Nav Bar
      can be enabled in the Settings. [/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Shifted to using a kernel driver for disabling touch devices
      when the screen is off instead of a user service for that. [/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Updated kernel to the latest upstream AOSP and
      CAF tags. There should be a noticeable performance boost. [/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Shifted to using OSS GPS code instead of prebuilt libs.
       Location applications should be getting and reporting
       satellite fix information properly. [/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Disabled cpusets support, which was slowing
      down the system performance. [/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] The auto time zone feature should now be working
      proper, (that is, without resetting the time zone
      to 0000 UTC).[/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Data should be working fully on all devices. [/B]

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B] [B]Updated xda post to include F/FN devices [/B]

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] The "message not sent" bug in text messaging
      app(s) should be gone. [/B]

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B][B] Updated kernel and prima (wifi)
       driver to the latest caf branch LA.BR.1.2.9_rb1.18[/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] The reboots caused by errors in the
      prima kernel driver should be gone.[/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] F2FS should work completely now.
       Updated F2FS code from upstream kernel sources and enabled
       security extended attribute support (for SElinux) to fix
       android support.[/B]

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B][B] Wifi driver is now built-into the kernel again.[/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B][B] The sleep issue should be fixed in the latest build.
      This was due to the failure to set a critical kernel
      variable at boot because the kernel init system was
      not interpreting a boot command line variable correctly.[/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B][B] Touch screen should be disabled properly during
      calls and when the screen is off.[/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B][B] Rotation sensor should be working properly in
      the latest build.[/B]

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] F2FS is enabled in-kernel, so F2FS filesystem
      mounting and formatting should be working fully.[/B]

    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B][B] Wifi driver is being built as a module for now,
      transitioning to a new kernel somehow broke the ability
      to build it into the kernel binary.[/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR]][/B][B] Transitioned to a new kernel based on T560NU and
      J500H MM kernel sources (J500HXXU2BPJ9 and T560NUUES1BPL1). [/B]

      toggle the loudspeaker. [/B]
    * [B][[COLOR="Red"]FIX[/COLOR]][/B] [B] Brightness adjustment should be functional. [/B]

      RIL service was not starting at boot for the second SIM. [/B]
    * [B] [ [COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR] ][/B] [B] Fixed support for all bootloaders.
      The culprit was a hardcoded string in the bootloader
      passed to the kernel, which is not recognised if the
      bootloader is older than the display driver and vice-versa. [/B]

    * [B] [ [COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR] ][/B] [B] Build first image [/B]
    * [B] [ [COLOR="Red"]NOTE[/COLOR] ][/B] [B] Created DevDB project [/B]

    New builds for all devices are up!

    As a reminder:

    The former jenkins domain (grandprime.ddns.net) is now defunct, and the new domain for Jenkins builds will be https://jenkins.msm8916.com

    As such there will be NO OTAs for all images from before today, and to update your device you WILL need to manually download an update at either https://download.msm8916.com or https://jenkins.msm8916.com

    This only needs to be done once. After installing an update from 28/08/2017 or 29/08/2017, your device should be receiving OTAs again.
    This is a notice in advance of upcoming OTAs:

    The former jenkins domain (grandprime.ddns.net) is now defunct, and the new domain for Jenkins builds will be http://jenkins.msm8916.com

    As such there will be NO OTAs for all images from before, and to update your device you WILL need to manually download an update at either http://download.msm8916.com or http://jenkins.msm8916.com
    I reported the same. Its a bug. And I have a 500m not j500f.

    Having at best 650 mA charging with oroginal charger ( it used to be 800+ )
    What's urs ? ( Use amper from playstore)

    It's not a bug. Koloses and Dyneteve tweaked their kernel to remove restrictions on charging currents, but that is NOT safe, and I will never include such in the main kernel branch.

    If you still think faster charging is worth possibly damaging your battery, go ahead and flash the overclock kernel for your device, and you can get that.

    That's really the last discussion I want to have in regards to this.
