Lineage OS on a Samsung Galaxy S4

2019-06-15 - psic4t

Today I installed Lineage OS on an old Galaxy S4 I found in a drawer. Unfortunately the S4 is already unsupported by the LineageOS guys so you have to rely on someone on XDA developers if you don’t want to compile the stuff yourself. I used this ROM.

The installation process is pretty straightforward. Install TWRP reovery fist, then LineageOS.

On your Linux box you need Heimdall installed.

INSTALL TWRP

You have to boot directly to recovery after flashing, otherwise TWRP gets overwritten.
