unfortunately I don't have a telegram account.

Could it be provided from another source?

You are free to create one :). In my case, I don't plan to share the builds I compile, such as this lineage of July, 15th, elsewhere than in telegram.

In addition, Martin has not recently shared his updates (January, April) on xda, you also have to go to telegram to retrieve them.

First of all: thanks everyone who keeps this project up. I just unstalled the January ROM on my device, fixed the SD Card problem and am really happy!

Now, I tried to join the Telegram Group. However, the link in the second post does not seem to be working ("This invite link has expired") and also I cannot find the "A3 2017 LineageOS discussion" group via search. Can anyone help me out here?

I experienced the same problem. Simply reflashing Current Stock and going from there did not work for me.

It seems the data on /EFS got scrambled and the IMEI can no longer be properly read by Custom Roms, which results in no service - Current Stock didn't have issues with this though... (I switched quite a number of times between the two investigating this) Here is how I fixed it:

Backup EFS (As far as I read messing with EFS could go quite wrong...)
Mount & Delete EFS using a Custom Recovery.
Boot to Bootloader and re-flash Current Stock (This will restore EFS; Flashing BL might be enough - didn't test that, as I already spent hours trying to resolve the issue...)

From here on I was able to Flash TWRP/Repartition/OrangeFox/LOS17/GAPPS and cell service was working again.
Nice, apart from my first reply to this comment I finally got it working!! Thank you very much!!

If anybody struggles I guess which was the stepping stone for me:
mount efs in TWRP then go to TWRP filebrowser (under advanced) and long press /efs in root-directory and press delete. It'll indicate that the device is busy and can't delete it but thats only for the /efs - everything inside should be gone (look and see yourself).
I also tried to just reflash BL-partition as @ATX-Vet mentioned but I really had to do a full stock-reflash. If you did the repartitioning before, toggle "NAND erase" and "repartition" under options in Odin and I had to manually get the pit file (unpack the CSC archive of the stock-firmware you are using, it should contain the stock pit file) and set it under "pit" in Odin.
 
LineageOS 17.x Unofficial for Galaxy A3 2017

LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10 (Quack), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
/*
* Your warranty is now void. Or not. Depends.
* It's probably expired anyways :D
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

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 Gerrit Code Review.​

What's working?
  • Audio
  • Calls
  • Wifi
  • Hotspot
  • Mobile data
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth
  • Fingerprint
  • Camera (both photos and video)
  • NFC
  • Sensors
  • Vibration
  • Others I have forgot

What isn't working?
  • Echo present in calls for the other side (no fix currently found)
  • Video recording with stock camera (fix known, will be implemented in next build)
  • Encryption and extended storage via SD (possible to fix, didn't have time to debug yet)
  • Stretched preview in camera, photos are fine (fix has more downsides than upsides)

Supported variants

Galaxy A3 (2017). Dual SIM is also supported.
All variants should be working but only A320FL is well tested since all developers have it.

How to install
  1. Make sure you have latest bootloader and modem before installing this.
  2. Make sure you are using the latest OrangeFox build. (the older ones will fail)
  3. Make sure you have flashed the repartition script.
  4. Download the Lineage build, optionally GApps and Magisk.
  5. In OrangeFox format data. (Menu > Manage Partitions > Data > Format Data)
  6. In OrangeFox wipe everything except SD and OTG.
  7. Flash LineageOS.
  8. Optional: Flash GApps (rightafter).
  9. Optional: Flash Magisk.
  10. Reboot.

Generally it's ok to dirty flash, but if you encounter issues a clean flash should be the first thing on your mind.

@MartinYTCZ Hi, I wanted to warn you that I have encountered a bug. Whenever the device turns off due to a low battery and I put it in charge, the charging screen appears (attached example image) and remains on that screen even after the power cable has been removed. The only way I have found to exit this screen is to enter download mode (with the key combination) and then press volume down to reboot the device. Can you please fix this in the next update? Thanks
P.s. I apologize for my bad english :)

Hi,
since in my country the mobile operators decided to turn off the 3G in the next year, so I am forced into replacing my "S4 mini duos - GT-i9192 - serranodsdd". Unfortunately for dual phones there are no other option close to the same size than A3 (2017) so I got it one (A320FL/DS - a3y17ltexc).

The official rom works well, but really old version (8.0.0 - Nov-2018) with lots of Samsung application which I will never be use. On my S4 mini I use LOS since years, so I decided to try it on A3 too.

I followed the instructions, and finally I can install lineage-17.1-20210118-UNOFFICIAL-a3y17lte.zip successfully.
I really thanks for all the developers whose creating this ROM.

I tested lots, so the phone works well (dual sim, fingerprint, BT, sound, AOD, etc.), but some function not:
  • LiveDisplay: it can't be enable as written in previously comments too, need 3rd party app. It would be much better if it could working in LOS by default.
  • Radio app: radio works well in the official ROM but in LOS the "Radio" app not found. Is there any chance that the radio will work in LOS?
  • Ambient Display: The proximity sensor works well (I tested at the "Phone Info *SAM*" app). But when I open "Settings / Display / (Advanced)/Lock screen display" and try to tap to the "Ambient display" menu at the bottom there is going to the "Display" menu instead of the "Ambient display" settings. So no options for "Hand wave" or "Proximity wave" settings.

Unfortunately the telegram link no more available anymore. I am very appreciate, if somebody could send me any description how can I build the LOS for a3y17lte. (For my S4 mini I built the OS myself, but it was not so complicated followed the LOS descriptions. I think it’s a lot harder to build for the A3.)

And for the last: The a3y17lts expected to be available under official LOS 18.1 as well?

I doubt a3 2017 will be official anytime soon. Telegram group is called A3 2017 lineageOS discussion

For an officially supported phone get the 2016 model.

    Hello everyone,

    i've been using the 17.1-20210118 build on my A320FL for a couple weeks now and it's been pretty usable, except for 3 "minor" annoyances:

    1 - Calls using bluetooth connection to the car unit produce no sound and input appears distorted on the other end (I tried disabling A2DP hw offload in dev options but there was no improvement).
    2 - Camera doesn't always work (almost never) with camera apps (i tried several) complaining it can't access the camera.
    3 - Wifi connection while the phone isn't being used get dropped regularly, making IM apps not receiving messages on time in a regular basis.

    I was wondering if anyone could make some suggestions for possible fixes.

    Cheers!

    I've been using various custom ROMS on this phone for over two years now and there is always some issue or other that limits full functionality. This is not to disparage the many developers who have done amazing things to prolong the life of this phone. However I am now using a Galaxy A3 2016 running Lineage OS, which works without any major issues. The A3 2016 is the only remaining compact phone that runs Lineage stock android with very few if any issues.
    Regards, David

    2 - Camera doesn't always work (almost never) with camera apps (i tried several) complaining it can't access the camera.
    Footej and Gcam work fine with me (except some Gcam side issues). Maybe could you try a more recent build shared in the telegram group and see if the problem is still here ?

    No, sorry :(. Waiting for that too.
    I am wondering why echos are not present in VoIP calls (like WA or Telegram). Do that use different drivers/layers?
    Also, from the reports of a Galaxy Tab A (2016) it seems @Valera1978 could solve that.

    The problem is that we are using the Open source Audio HAL, which doesn't support Samsung's proprietary noise reduction. Once there is a viable proprietary alternative, it will be implemented

    EDIT: I am trying to implement the proprietary HAL used in gtaxlwifi, *hopefully* should work
    7
    All these bugs with gapps will be fixed in next update.
