  1. For me, The best custom rom for Samsung j3 is Resurrection Remix. It offers a lot of Option to customize things.


    I have a SM-J320FN for drone apply but it’s possible with 8.0 minimum then I wait this version
    When do you think Linéage OS 15 to be downloadable ?

    1. It is highly unlikely that some developers will pick up a 2016 Samsung J3 for development, so there may be no new ROMs for J3 in the future.

  3. Hello,
    I have a samsung Galaxy J3 2016 (J320FN).
    I had rooted it, in order to make the SIM card work, but not all apps are movable and when I move the files there are issues sometimes.
    So I am looking to change the operating system. I discovered your site and I was wondering if among the OS you mention, there is one that is compatible with my device, without having a bug?
    Thank you in advance for your answer.
