Call for testing: Samsung S3 Neo (s3ve3g) owners
Hello, nice that you want to try it. So yes the halium-boot.img goes into the boot partition, but here is the guide from the beginning of this thread in case you missed it: https://pad.ubports.com/p/samsung-s3neo-alphatesting
That should explain a lot - let me hear what happened
Thanks. Used to doing this sort of things in windows and not messed with it in linux. Phone being a pain, when trying to get it recognised in download mode.
Got the all the SDK stuff installed. Any thoughts re linux recognising device in download mode ? Changed cables and did all that. Running ubuntu 18.
I will try to get an S3... Wanna help.
didn't realise that ADB is such a pain. Updated bootloader on phone. rooted phone, and for some reason cant get the thing to recognise in download mode.
Ok. got to the last step and seemed to fail at the end. "heimdall flash --BOOT halium-boot.img".
got the below message. Any advice !! ?
Some devices may take up to 2 minutes to respond.
Please be patient!
Downloading device's PIT file...
ERROR: Failed to send request to end PIT file transfer!
ERROR: Failed to download PIT file!
ERROR: Failed to send end session packet!
Releasing device interface...
Cracked it ! It was a version issue with hemidall. 1.4.2 seemed to resolve the issue.
Huge thanks to @hsce1 for this documentation, it really helped a lot.
Just playing about with Ubuntu Touch and getting familiar with stuff.
Only got about 2 % space free tho .
ill jump in SAP , when the camera fix will come ?
@Mohsen1220 I am not sure now. We are seeing that basically all cameras fail with Halium and wwe need to change the whole camera access to GStreamer and a droid module to interface. While this works reasonably well for Halium 7.1 there is currently no one working on a backport to 5.1 - I can take a look how much work this is, but I cannot tell when
To all testers, I see a regression regarding the modem, it does not start correctly anymore. Can one of you insert a SIM card and test the functions of the modem?
@Flohack can't you use helium 9, because all we do knows that s3 neo all 3 models have lineage os 16 so it would help to fix a lot of problems as the camera and ril problems
@kitwiz555 Maybe, I did not look into whats needed for Halium 9, and how much work it would be, I started the port at a time when support for 9 was not even a thing
