Thanks for this great rom.

I'm using LOS 16.0 Go version (lineage-go-16.0-j5-20191005-NIGHTLY-j5lte.zip) with the OpenGapps 9.0-pico-20191221 and my phone's hardware buttons backlight is not working. I checked System > Buttons menu and backlight setting is on but it does not work. Any idea ?

Where do we have any backlight? We don't

I'm not sure if J5 has backlight on the buttons

J5 doesn't have backlit light

Did you try rebooting? In-call audio should be working for both SIMs

It works!
Thanks :)

Does your father know you installed a custom ROM on his device?
?

Hi buddy
I am using sep8.5 lite & i am not satisfied i need long battery timing & better ram management.should i install this rom on my j500fn

Experience UI and other Samsung ROMs are really heavily built.
They consumes much resources. LineageOS is full stock ROM with customising options. There aren't any bloatwares.
I've been using this ROM for months and it's giving me fine performance.

I'm not forcing you to use it
Try out this ROM to see what it can give it to you...

If you're switching from another ROM, do a backup via TWRP and full (I mean full) format/wipe is recommended

This is normal in lineage & cm builds don't worry


Los 16 requires twrp 3.2.3 or higher. I don't recall him making one that high, but i could be wrong.

The official twrp 3.3.1 does not contain the seandroid is not enforcing warning, nor does the kernel in this rom.

Idk what kind of advice is being given, but it is not accurate

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), 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]
    [B]SM-J500FN[/B] - [COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"][B]j5nlte[/B][/COLOR]
    [B]SM-J500H[/B] - [COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"][B]j53gxx[/B][/COLOR]


    Download


    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 link below and flash it using the ODIN tool (see Instructions below). You cannot flash a custom ROM over stock recovery, so downloading a custom recovery is the first thing you will need to do:



    ROM Downloads can be found at:



    You will probably need to install GApps (Google Apps Suite) as well if you want access to Play Store, and other Google apps. There are two versions:



    Instructions



    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]

    * Submit the logcat here on the forums, or on the Telegram group.

    * 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.

    If this is your first time flashing P, 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.

    Some info:
    Currently, I am the new maintainer for LineageOS for Galaxy J5. I will continue giving updates and fixing bugs, so if you have any questions, suggestion or found any bugs, direct it to me in this thread.

    New images are up for all devices. There are too many threads for me to update all the OPs forall of them, and no one reads those anyways.

    A few changes/fixes i can remember:

    - Sim detection issue is now fixed, and possibly in call audio for dual sim devices.

    - RIL/Telephony works for P builds.

    - Audio works fully for P builds.

    - Bluetooth mac address is now read from efs and set proper.

    - A lot of backend server and repo/device tree stuff that is not user visible, e.g cleaning up, rom support, e.g bringing dotOS, setting up github uploads and transferring artifacts there, etc.

    - As a consequence, download server no longer hosts artifacts. Using the dl server will redirect to github releases, where the artifacts for most of the builds within the past ~ 1 year are hosted. Any builds before then were lost with the previous download server (s).


    I've tried to issue builds for all devices and their variants within the last week. I haven't been well for a while, and working on this for this long continuously takes a lot out of me, so I'll be going on hiatus for an undefined period of time to rest, recover and take some me to focus on other things. Please don't PM me or mention me here or on telegram or email me, or contact me on github or wherever else i can be found, i really would like not to be bothered.


    The server will remain up.
