Before you proceed with the flashing and testing please read the warning given below very carefully

  • Please note this is a test build, I did not yet test it myself.
  • Please take a backup of your data before your proceed.
  • Coming from previous Android Versions i suggest you do a clean flash ( wipe system, data and cache)

Hello Chimpthepimp,
…so far, so good ! My second s4 mini is working well, until now, no fc’s … My personal reason to stay with a personal install of LOS16 unofficial (by ‘arco68’, xda) is mainly esthetics (don’t like the BLISS-launcher) and the joy of tinkering…:slightly_smiling_face: :
Also, I opted for a tts-engine (not open-source : VocalizerEx2) and a stt-solution. Therefore I installed a very old version of the"Google-App" (2.7.9.789824.arm), which seems to act well without any play-services and is restricted to use oft microphone only (no “reading contacts” or whatsoever…). I didn’ t patch the LOS-ROM for signature-spoofing and opted for an available standalone NLP-solution (unifiednlp, flashable ZIP through TWRP) instead oft MicroG…
But I’ m glad you did the build, especially as the security-patches seems to slowly vanish for LOS 14.1 … BTW, do you plan another build with december-patch integrated !?
…Maybe I’ll switch, I just had another week with your build as “daily driver” and slowly begin to accomadate with BLISS-launcher… :wink:

i can just do one if ou wish :slight_smile:
also you can install any launcher you want on android so you are not obligated to use blisslauncher ( have a look at lawnchair or such :wink: ) and for los14.1 the security patches apparently stopped in november…

Hey,
thanx a lot for your reply !! yes, I’d be interested in another build with uptodate-security-patch !!
Maybe, this would lead the up to now “unofficial-build” status to gain “official” or “community-based”, which would be very nice ! It could ensure to continue using this
little phone even longer… :-))
Greetings,
npfp

You can find the build here

Bon Jour / Soir,
Crois-tu qu’après deux mois il serait intéressant de construire une nouvelle ROM, ou pense tu que les sources n’ont pas connue d’évolutions suffisament significatives ?
La version 1.0 officielle est pour bientôt !
Cordialement.
Piero.

Sorry for answering in english, my french isn t the best anymore,… The only thing updated will most likely be “only” the security patches. Anyway you can find the new build here

Hi jannes, thanks for the build, I installed it today, but I already see that it is fine!!!

One question if I can: will you keep updating it from time to time, or will it stand still in June?

Thanks anyway! :+1:

Claudio

I will update it as long as it wont get official… These past months i was busy with studies but that should be finished for now :slight_smile:

After some days of regular use, I can say that the Pie unofficial build for serranoltexx is working fine.
I hope that will be one of the /e/ supported devices! :crossed_fingers:
