Rom-Information

Ground Zero Validus 8.1.0 Unofficial
Galaxy-MSM8916 device-tree from unofficial LineageOS 15.1
no Gapps included

What works

same as unofficial LineageOs 15.1

Bugs

NFC (J500FN)

Credits

Sources
I moved all my repos to gitlab so all repo-urls have changed, the local_manifests-file on github is updated accordingly.
Downloads

Instructions
MarshMallow bootloader is required or you will not be able to boot the rom !
  1. Download the latest build
  2. Reboot to TWRP
  3. If you want to be sure wipe the device
  4. Flash the latest build
  5. Reboot and enjoy

Others

OTA is available with recent builds.

Easily rootable with the great Magisk (stable) by @topjohnwu.

Exchange2 for Oreo is included and will be installed as system-app (I need this for my work).

As you can see I use it as daily driver without major issues.

I use microG as google replacement and for push-services, signature-spoofing is already build into the rom but need to be granted manually (as root):
Code:
pm grant com.google.android.gms android.permission.FAKE_PACKAGE_SIGNATURE

what do you mean by headset working but bt audio is a bug?? you mean bt shows connected but no media or does it work?
BT works in general, my headphone also works as headset (microphone and speaker), just media over bt is not working, so no a2dp.
Car audio is not tested, but I did not find a (aosp based) custom rom with working car-bt so far (for J5).

Is you have also implemented zram in the rom ?
And
Whats the difference btw your rom and tioguda's rom ???
I use the same kernel as the unofficial LineageOS 15.1, so yes, zram should be there.
Code:
130|[email protected]:/ # find / -name "*zram*" 2>/dev/null
/sys/devices/virtual/block/zram0
/sys/block/zram0
/sys/class/block/zram0
/dev/block/zram0


I did not use tioguda's build, because mine was already running, when he first published it, but as far as I know he used the same device-tree and (most likely) the same Validus-tree, so no big difference (if at all).
According to his screenshots, the kernel was the same, but build with gcc 4.8 (or 4.9) mine is build with gcc 7.2.
