LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1 (OREO), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway. All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo.

Code:
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am 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 me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
Whats Not Working:
* No Music Key Function
* VoLTE is not working
* HDR in camera is not working
* Selinux is Permissive, will fix it after few builds by collecting logs and fixing denials

Workarounds:
* Use Jio4GVoice for VoLTE calling ( Assuming that you are on jio network otherwise for calls it'll automatically change to 2G/3G )
* Use open Camera for HDR

Instructions :
- Download the latest build, force encrypt disabler , treble TWRP, repartition zip and gapps
- Reboot to recovery
- Flash TWRP zip and reboot to recovery again
- Flash the repartition zip and reboot to recovery again
- Wipe System and Vendor
- Flash the latest build
- Make sure system and vendor are not mounted, go to mount section in twrp and if either or both of them are ticked, untick them
- Flash force encrypt disabler (Optional)(Only use it if you want to access the internal storage through TWRP and also for not having any issues when flashing magisk modules)
- Again reboot to recovery select Wipe-> format data ( If you already did this once ignore it, but if you flashed stock rom again do it) and wipe cache and dalvik cache
- Flash Gapps (Optional)(Atleast in theory)
- Reboot

Downloads :
Build : lineage-15.1-20200625-UNOFFICIAL-manning.zip
Google Apps : https://opengapps.org ( Select ARM64 as Platform Version and 8.1 as Android Version, pick any package except tvstock according to your needs)

Reporting Bugs
DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless). Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

Awesome
I really appreciate you for more than a year of your dedicated work and efforts in booting Lineage OS on the Lenovo K8 series that is powered by a mediatek chipset and fixing most of the major bugs one by one from ril to fingerprint sensor. Keep it up bro.

Congratulations bro! I appreciate your work. I can't believe that we get a stable ROM with major bugs fixed one by one. ND Making rom for mtk soc is not a easy task. You are working since 1 year for this Rom. Tysm for giving your precious time for this device. Maybe in future some devs will be inspired by your work and users get support for mtk like snapdragon.
