    I did not find any Android Pie or LineageOS 16 compatible MindTheGapps for ARM32 (simply known as ARM) architecture.
    You can use the LineageOS 16 GApps link to download ARM32 Gapps.

    See if that works or not !

    Baseband problem in SM-G900M as well, it doesn’t recognize sim. Do you need a log or something?? I mean, if it helps :p

    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 !
