i have tried all the builds no one is working

---------- Post added at 12:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:03 PM ----------


already done that nothing works

You might be using old firmware. The rom will only boot on devices with at least MM (6.0) firmware. The easiest thing to do is just flash a stock MM rom, then reinstall twrp and install lineage.

my mobile is booting fine but the sim cards are not recognized by the rom no sim card present error is showing

What's your baseband/bootloader version? You can find it in Settings > System > About Phone. Bootloader version can be found on app like Device Info HW or CPU-Z.

On your recovery, what version did you use? I recommend version TWRP 3.2.3 / latest (which can be found on the MSM8916 download main page under the folder "TWRP").

sim card issue is fixed on the latest build 20181009
but mobile data is not working on j500h any solution for that i can make call and text messages but 3g data is not working ??

Try switching your (preferred) primary SIM as 3G/HSPA+ and your secondary SIM as 2G/GSM, then select SIM card (which you selected as 3G/HSPA+) as Mobile Data. Sometimes, it'll depend on your carrier coverage and your area where you use your phone.

Hello all!

Are the links to the lineageos 15.1 working? I've tried several downloads today (including the one on this thread) and none of them are available.

My phone is the SM-J500M.

They moved them to github so server was 'down' for a bit.

Here you go :)
https://download.msm8916.com

Thank you very much, I understood it now why nothing was working.

But anyway, I couldn't flash the lineageos on my device. I got this error:
"Updater process ended with ERROR: 7
Error installing zip file '/sdcard/lineage-15.1-j124-20181009-NIGHTLY-j5lte.zip' "

Do I have to update / reinstall my TWRP? I'm pretty sure I'm using the correct ROOM for my device...

EDIT: Updated TWRP to 3.1.1 but the same error persists.

Hi.

Due to the large bandwidth (network link speed) demands which can't be met by the download server, build artifacts will now be stored to Github Releases at https://github.com/Galaxy-MSM8916/releases .


All artifacts have finished syncing to GitHub.

There is no need to interact with the Github page directly to find a release.

Visit https://download.msm8916.com as normal, and it'll redirect you to the right place, for example, opening https://download.msm8916.com/DotOS/o/gprimelte/20181006/ will automatically redirect you to the appropriate release on GitHub.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1 (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.


    Code:
    ** Disclaimer
    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!
    Code:
    [B]SM-J500F/G/M/Y[/B] - [COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"][B]j5lte[/B][/COLOR]
    [B]SM-J5008[/B] - [COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"][B]j5ltechn[/B][/COLOR]

    Instructions


    If you are completely new to flashing custom ROMs and have no idea how to begin, start by downloading a TWRP image for your device from the links above and flash it using the ODIN tool (see below).

    You cannot flash a custom ROM over stock recovery, so downloading a custom recovery is the first thing you will need to do.





    If you are completely new to flashing custom ROMs and have no idea how to begin, start by downloading a TWRP image for your device from the links above and flash it using the ODIN tool (see below).

    You cannot flash a custom ROM over stock recovery, so downloading a custom recovery is the first thing you will need to do.

    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:


    Code:
    [B]* Install samsung device drivers and then
     the adb utils from here:[/B]
    
    [url]https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979[/url]
    
    [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:


    Code:
    [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:

    Code:
    adb connect [ip address here]

    And then the adb logcat command for windows.

    NOTE: Development/maintenance is still ongoing.

    In case any clarification is needed: a member of the team quit (you know who). Myself (Vincent), Sean (@deadman96385) and Emery (@minz1) have been busy, and I unwell, for the past few months, so we have not been able to contribute as much as we would like, but make no mistake: we are the founders of this (Galaxy-MSM8916/53) teams, and our contributions in terms of both time, money and code are by far the greatest. We are committed as always, and as long as there is a community for msm8916/msm8953 devices, we will keep maintaining our sources and building ROMs for these devices.

    If this is your first time flashing O, you will need to install the latest unofficial TWRP image for your device from the links above before flashing a zip image, otherwise installation of a zip will invariably fail.

    Hi.

    New builds are up for all devices. See the third post (first page). But more importantly:


    I usually don't ask for or expect much, but at this critical time we really need your financial support, and anything will go a long way. Our domain is expiring next week, and our server and needs upgrades, and money is needed for a faster network link, and the like, and all of us on the team have spent a lot of our own time and money to make this happen, and to keep it going.

    We cannot keep forking money from our own pockets, because the cumulative cost over the past few years is really high
    (say, somewhere between $500-$1000) excluding previous donations.

    I'm only saying this because we REALLY, REALLY need your financial support to keep this going.

    I'm not asking for money for myself. This is all for the progress of maintenance/development.

    We're all students or borderline broke, living from paycheck to paycheck, and we've done the best we can with what we have.

    If you can donate a dollar, then do that. If you can donate more, then please do. But please, if you can, take the time to do so.

    There are thousands (yes, thousands) of users downloading ROMs *every day* from our servers, tens of downstream clones of our repos and ROMs, and upwards of 30 devices supported, so this isn't an absurd request.

    For the cost of a coffee, or whatever your favourite drink or snack is, you can help us keep this going beyond O.

    If you can, donate to (Paypal): [email protected]

    Thanks,


    Vincent.

    I can't get lattest netflix working.
    I pass safetynet (fully) but no netflix.
    Someone got it working?


    i've installed the last version of lineageosGO and performance seems great. But i'm facing a bug(?) with the playstore, i dont know if it is problem with the gapps (i already installed 3 different ones) or if its a problem with the rom. The fact is, most of the apps that i use, like istagram, twitter, facebook, uber,etc. are aparently incompatiblle with my device. when i go to playstore and try to install anyone of those above, i get the message "your device is not compatible with this version". Is there anything that i can do to fix that? the rom is awesome, i really want to use it. Thanks for your time

    I'm aware of this. There's a bug I missed, and only noticed by the time all the builds had run, which affects all that. I'll rerun the builds with a fix.

    For the time being, you can set this prop and restart systemui, and the bug should be cleared :

    Code:
     ro.opengles.version=196608
