Unofficial LineageOS for Huawei G8 (aka GX8)

 * Your warranty is now void. 
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, 
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please 
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM 
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if 
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. 



This is an UNOFFICIAL build of Lineage OS. I am building this after the previous LineageOS dev thread was locked. If you notice bugs, please report with logs and detailed steps (to show how you were able to reproduced the bug). I will likely be releasing updates once a month to keep up with the AOSP security patches and the last LineageOS fixes/features.


* Latest LineageOS 14.1 source
* February Android security patches to LOS
Installation instructions

Recommended steps for clean install (note: you need to already be on Huawei's MM bootloader):
* Perform a backup in recovery
* Wipe data+system+cache
* Install lineage-14.1-20180227-UNOFFICIAL-rio.zip
* Install latest OpenGapps (arm64/7.1)
* Wipe cache
* Reboot (first boot may take a while)

I've flashed the latest rom with supersu 2.79sr and the gapps from 0423 and cleared the Dalvik/Cache.

The result is that the setup wizard is really slow and it's using the old interface.

Edit: I was able to finish the setup wizard and I've found that the rom itself is very slow.

Any chance to have the performance of the ROM excelerated?
Having it working fast, I will definitely switch to it from AOSP X.

I installed the ROM today on my GX8 and the first Bug i already found is that when I try to register my Fingerprint the phone freezes and after about 5 seconds it reboots, also it is impossible to use a PIN or Pattern for unlocking, because if you try to change the PIN the settings App crashes, apart from those I haven't found anything until now, I will keep reporting back

Do you think this phone can reach an android O upgrade? Or will this be the end?
