Announcement from XePeleato: UPDATE: Recovery reboot fixed!


Latest update: June 29th 2017


Disclaimer:
Altough we are working hard to deliver a bug-free rom, things may break and we are not responsible if something goes wrong and your hardware becomes damaged or if you have any problem, you are taking a risk flashing roms.

Hi, so you might wonder why the other thread got closed and what's all of this about. Well, the answer is that now I'll be maintaining this rom while Surdu will take care of Resurrection Remix, the rom is the same and you can flash this builds without wiping if you had the 'older' rom.

Instructions:

If you come from stock EMUI 5.0:
  • Install TWRP (Available in this subforum)
  • Format data
  • Flash vendor.zip
  • Flash LineageOS's zip

If you already have LineageOS:
  • Flash LineageOS's zip
Downloads:
Find them in this DevDB project section called 'Downloads' (you might need to use a computer)

Bugs:
  • Encryption

Changelog:
Code:
01/06/2017 - Fixed random reboot issue
01/06/2017 - Added loop support
29/06/2017 - Fixed tethering
29/06/2017 - Fixed shaky camera
29/06/2017 - Updated Lineage source
Asking for help...
There are still some little bugs to fix and things will break from time to time, so in order to properly help you and keep the thread organized every help petition should include:
  • Brief description of the issue
  • A way to replicate it
  • Screenshots/Logs

Without that information, your post will be futile so please meet those easy conditions and try to keep the thread clean!

Last but not least, thanks to the whole OpenKirin team (@surdu_petru @OldDroid) for their amazing job at keeping updated roms for kirin devices as well as helping with this one.

Sorry about that, there must be a problem with XDA servers, it's taking more than an hour to upload! And unfortunately I couldn't upload it without posting the DevDB thread, if it keeps working like that I'll find a more reliable storage solution.

I am really sorry! Check back in 5 minutes or so

Very nice job, and happy you fixed the issue. I'll set it as my daily driver once everything's OK

So what exactly caused the issues ? I'm curious as to whether it could have been solved on our own (i do say without Huawei's kind but forced operations).

And what do we do with that vendor.zip ? Flash it on top of Lineage's original Vendor package ?
(EDIT : Check post on top, the joys of cross-posting )

Still, thank you immensely on behalf of all the community

Hi, the problem was that a driver introduced by Huawei checked the time that it takes to boot (running in a kthread), if it takes more than three minutes it reboots to eRecovery, but it looks like it waits for a signal from userspace to check if it booted (like, write 1 to /sys/.... Whenever it boots).

We were actually aware of this being the issue, and tried to avoid it by editing the function's code (ARM64 instructions because we had no source (By filling the function with NOP or returning 0)) but we didn't succeed at first and thought that the kernel release was near so it made no sense to keep wasting time on it, if you want to see more details just go to github and check what we did, I hope that you understood the explanation.

Thanks for your kind words!

EDIT: The rom is up, you can download it now.
