Baseband problem in SM-G900M as well, it doesn’t recognize sim. Do you need a log or something?? I mean, if it helps :pSeptember 23, 2018 at 11:08 PM #52300dreaminchildMember
Tried versions of Haggertk (28/08 and 9/09) and Brunowp8 (lineage-16.0.20180920-unofficial-klte.zip). Clean install, after full wipe on Galaxy S5 klte (SM-G900F).
All same result: no sim found. Lots of things working fine, so keep up the good work! I’m back to 15.1 for the moment…
BTW: If you use google as “backup” for apps and system settings: you can’t go back to an earlier version; so if you install 9.0, let google restore all settings and apps, and wait a bit before going back to 8.1, backup won’t restore anymore !
