    Android Nougat 7.1 ROM, Lineage OS 14.1 for Galaxy S5 Neo has now arrived via an UNOFFICIAL and OFFICIAL build. If you want some more Lineage OS ROMs for other devices then stay tuned to the Lineage OS 14.1 page. This Galaxy S5 Neo Lineage OS 14.1 is brought to you by developer Stricted.


    If you like the ROM or the TWRP recovery brought to you by these developer(s) then consider donation to them. Believe me it motivates and it matters too.

    THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY HAVE MANY MORE BUGS THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Galaxy S5 Neo (G903F, s5neoltexx) may require the bootloader to be unlocked, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider a complete backup. You are the only person making changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by YOU.

    Root binary is NOT inbuilt in Lineage OS 14.1, so you may need a separate SuperSu package or Lineage OS su binary to install to gain ROOT access. Here is LineageOS Rooting guide
    If there is no in-built ROOT or it does not work for some reason then you can try SuperSU root guide to gain ROOT access.

    great work, i was waiting for a decent rom for my phone – i used stock rom. i flashed it twice – yesterday and the day before strictly under instructions and encountered following issues:

    1. my jabra storm earpiece (bluetooth 4.0) is working partially – i can hear multimedia and i can use it for speech to text apps but i cant hear the caller and the caller cant hear me. with earpiece connected, if i change to phone i can talk and hear (more about it in point 2), if i change to speaker i can hear but i cant talk.

    2. when calling someone with my phone, every 2-3 calls called person cannot hear me, while i do hear. i didn’t observe it when someone calls me.

    3. i have problems sending sms and mms using messages app and facebook messenger app. i checked all sms settings and they’re correct. in hidden menu i updated messages center. yesterday at around 11 pm all the messages i tried to send to my wife were sent in bulk without getting “sent” status.

    thats for now. anyone with similar issues or knows how to fix it?

    thanks in advance
