By what tweaks tho? Can you help me out cuz netflix is part of my daily use and yeah i really need it to work xD
I haven't try it myself, but Magisk + Magiskhide props config seems to work, as said by bootledgers deb.
If you don't want download and Pip feautures, just download latest apk ( from apk mirror for example) and an error will give you the latest version for rooted devices

Do you know what is the latest ROM for the J500M that works without problems or system lag? I'm using Lineage 15.1-20180427-NIGHTLY-j5lte but it has started to fail closing apps and had lag.

It's perfect as long as you don't enable the navigation bar

You need to pass SafetyNet for it to work so you have to install the latest Magisk version + This Module by @Didgeridoohan
Not true at all. I have explained a lot of time here as well as on other threads. The Play version wont work without Safetynet. But they have another version compatible with such devices. Install it from Play, then when you open it, it will prompt to go to website and download a compatible version. Go there, select arm and install the apk after you uninstall the Play version

What device? Works for all devices for the last like 3 months :confused:
Same device like yours j500f. Well I have flashed the rom and going to post log cats for gms stopping for Mind the gapps.
Steps to produce this.
1. Download latest lineage os 15.1 build j114.
2. Download latest MindTheGapps package. Selected zip is MindTheGapps-8.1.0-arm-20180610_023943.zip.
3. Wipe/Format data, cache, system, dalvik, internal.
4. Flash lineage and wipe dalvik and cache. Reboot.
5. Now flash MindTheGapps and reboot.
6. Try adding google account.
< Error Gms has been stopped. >
The log cats are provided here

Update :
As told by many other users and successfully tested by me. Aroma package is working flawlessly.
Steps to set up GApps Aroma Installer.
1. Download open_gapps-arm-8.1-aroma-20180706.zip
2. Now flash it and choose the apps you want to install.
3. The setup will crash and bring you back to TWRP. This is because some apps are not compatible with the device.
4. Now select minimal apps which are not available on play store.
5 If TWRP restricts you from rebooting the phone. Remove battery and restart.
6. It works like a charm.


Other information
Device : j500f
Lineage : 15.1-20180623
Kernel : 3.10.108-g35d96397f24

Tell me if you need more information and logcats.
Press Thanks button if I helped.

Yes, but that version doesn't have download option, and it doesnt heve the latest feautures like the new UI and Pip video. And it will never be updated.

JF00N - gapps not working on J53 build from 2406

Were you running mm bootloader b4 installing?
Twrp 3.2.1 for j5 Oreo?

I'm currently using j500fn with current 24/6 and open gapps arm 8.1 aroma ver. Works fine. If you continue to have issues try feel free to pm me

Also if you want a copy of the last good stable build send me email, I'll send it to you. I don't see it on the server at the moment. 25/5


Hi all,

I have J500FN. I trying to install this ROM and gapps.

ROM J53_20180624 install successfully and things are working.
I am trying to install gapps as well. However, with aroma ( 2406 and 0607), it just do not boot after installing.
I tried pico version as well. with this one, it boots easily. But "google play service" keeps on closing.

I am installing gapps, because I want to use below functionalities
1. Sync contacts and calendar with default apps or gapps from accounts like google or yahoo etc
2. to be able to use google keep and drive to sync my notes and documents.

Others I am happy to use apks, if needed.

I found one article on shadow53, stating how to sync calendar and contacts.(Sorry I am not allowed post outside links) But this also needs working "Google play services".
It provides its own version called MicroG. But I am not sure how safe is it and how to check if this works with LineageOS.

Appreciate any help, in any method that can get these functionality running.

Please note, I am not a usual tweaker of the phone with ROM or other programs. Trying this as Samsung stock was too heavy and no space left and becoming too slow.

Is microG safe?? Its a lot safer than Google as Google keeps all your info. Microg is an alternative to play services and lineage have there own "microg for lineage" on there website I believe. What version of gapps are you trying to install? And are you rooted with Magisk and what version?
If it is aroma gapps on the new Magisk 16.6 than it probably won't work as a few changes have been made to the latest Magisk release and Samsung phones are having trouble booting if its an aroma rom or gapps.
Try pico gapps from opengapps.org

    DISCLAIMER:
    Code:
    Your warranty is now void.
    I'm 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
    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 a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.0 (Oreo), 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.

    What's working :
    • Boots
    • RIL
    • Audio
    • Sensors
    • Flash
    • Camera
    • Video recording
    • GPS
    • Wifi
    • Bluetooth

    Known issuses:
    • NFC is broken ( J500FN )
    • Maybe more

    • 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)
    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.
