Tree: halium-7.1

  • Create manifest: samsung_dream2lte.xml
  • Boot image and system image build successfully
  • Device boots into rootfs, usb: Manufacturer: GNU/Linux Device appears in dmesg on host.
  • LXC container starts and does not crash
  • libhybris tests
    • test_gps
    • test_hwcomposer
    • test_lights
    • test_vibrator
    • test_wifi
    • test_sensors
    • test_audio
    • test_camera
    • test_input
    • test_nfc
    • test_recorder
  • Test various rootfs

Prebuilt images for S8+:

Sidenote 0: Both dreamlte and dream2lte share the same common tree, but yet there are minor differences. This port was only tested on dream2lte at the moment.

Sidenote 1: Some tests are broken in Halium 7.1. They won't work until they get fixed

Sidenote 2: It appears that the device is able to boot UBports rootfs with halium-boot, as it creates all the necessary folders in /data and doesn't bootloop, but no debugging interfaces are exposed (neither telnet nor ssh), so it's impossible to see what's going on. Update: The problem lies in hybris-boot not supporting configfs on 4.4 kernels

Sidenote 3: If selinux is disabled (or set to permissive), the device will show you a red warning "kernel is not seandroid enforcing" on top of the screen. This should not prevent the phone from booting

Sidenote 4: There is no official LineageOS 14.1 for the device, and probably will never be, as most of the developers are working on getting 15.1 to boot at the moment. I will try to maintain the fork of 14.1 myself. The latest image is uploaded next to my Halium images

There is a fix for the seandroid enforcing warning. It is literally just the string SEANDROIDENFORCE appended to the end of the image. I created a PR, but not sure if this is the right way to do it:

@mgood7123 halium doesn't support anything newer than LOS14.1. Stable LOS 14.1 is not available for dream2lte (read sidenote 4)

There is a LOS 16.0 build for dream2lte available, so there's hope for that when (or if) Halium supports LOS 16.0

It doesn't make any sense to port a broken OS on top of a broken OS. You won't be able to use it as a phone anyways. If you just want to use it as an aarch64 server, you can do it anyway, even without halium
