a5xelte - Samsung Galaxy A5 2016¶
Galaxy A5 2016 is an old device, though it is still quite popular. It gets official LineageOS builds and is being maintained well.
There are two people on GitHub who have been working on this device.
manux176 (halium-9.0) progress: nothing but device manifest is made according to latest issue state
feuerpanda (halium-7.1) progress: device manifest if present, according to issue state, but it’s closed so no progress is awaited.
The following entries are just a placeholder, exactly as this sentence.
|Distribution||XDA-Devs Forum Page||Device Specific Files||Kernel||What works||What doesn’t work|
|LineageOS device page||XDA-Devs Forum page||android_device_placeholder||android_kernel_placeholder based on v3.10.108||Almost everything works, except entries in the section to the left.||IMS service (and won’t work in future) since to Samsung’s proprietary implementation.|
|Ubports device page: no device page yet.||Ubports/Halium release on XDA-Devs forum: none as yet.||android_device_placeholder||android_kernel_placeholder based on v3.10.108||No porting done yet.||No porting done yet.|

I noticed very rare cases where the device would reboot after a few hours of use while on LineageOS 17.1 May update.
