I'm trying to install Lineage OS onto my Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5, following the instructions on https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/jfltexx/install

I've successfully installed Lineage to an S4 before, using these instructions, so I don't understand what's going on.

Both S4 and S5 exhibit the same issue.

I'm stuck at a very early stage (step 4): Instead of 'Replace Driver' I get the caption 'Reinstall Driver' on the button (Zadig v2.0.0.147). I figure that's because I did it before and it's using the same driver (also for the S5???). So perhaps that's fine.

In the instructions there is nothing about changing the target driver and I can install any of them successfully. However, none of the options work when getting to the next step, running heimdall print-pit

Here is the result for each driver:

I've tried this on another Windows machine as well and I get the same issue. So between two computers and two phones I always get stuck in the same place. That only leaves the root of the problem to sit between back of the chair and the keyboard - what am I doing wrongly?

Further research suggests USB driver problems, but that points back to Zadig/heimdall, doesn't it?

  • You have a Windows machine? Ditch Heimdall, use Odin. The former is open-source while the latter is proprietary, and that's part of why the guide recommends the former, but to end users the latter is way easier to use.

If you're on a Windows machine, there's no need to mess with Heimdall - use Odin instead. It's proprietary software but works almost out-of-the-box (as long as you have the official USB driver installed).
