        1. lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or pedigree.
        2. a sequence of species each of which is considered to have evolved from its predecessor.
 * 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.

Work·ing * Camera (partially and only with specific apps, look in the "not working" section) * RIL (partially) * Video DEC/ENC * Audio * Wifi * Bluetooth * Nfc * WiFi tethering * MTP * Flashlight * Screen recording

Not work·ing | Iss·u·es * Camera is buggy atm (Shooting pictures works with Footej, Snapchat is OK) * multiple RIL issues, dual sim works fine for some users! (or it doesn't work at all ... gambling, try rebranding to c432 if you have issues and update to b370, thats known as properly working) * DT2W * Encryption

1. delete all previously registered fingerprints on EMUI 5.0 2. backup internal storage, data, boot, vendor and system 3. format /data 4. wipe vendor, system 5. first time flashing the rom over emui 5? flash vendor.img (extracted from, put it on your external sdcard) command (either use twrp terminal or adb shell): dd if=/external_sd/vendor.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/vendor it would be "sdcard instead of "external_sd" if you flash it from your internal storage 6. flash lineage 7. optional: flash gapps (micro, arm64 suggested) 8. enjoy!
FAQ Q: Can you port stock emui camera? A: No, we are not Huawei, go back to EMUI.

Source Code

Kernel Code:

In case you want to build LineageOS - or any other Rom based on it - yourself,
i've created a github project with everything required to reproduce the lineage build :) - DEVELOPER FRIENDLY
Just use the exact same vendor zip as provided in the LOS thread because thats something we can't produce as build output.

Please retain credit our work!
Best regards,
Team Openkirin

Well done. I applaude the initiative and am happy proper development is starting for the P9 Lite.

Personally I will stick with stock until camera performance will be as good as on stock.
