LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), 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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

GPL compliance:

Working:
  • Camera (and flashlight)
  • WiFi
  • NFC
  • Bluetooth

  • Tell me, there will always be something..



Compatibility:
Compatible with all Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite variants.

Downloads:
Notice:
  • No custom kernels are supported in this thread. Only stock kernel and official builds will be supported. No bug reports if that's not the case.

Installation:
  • Boot recovery from fastboot (TWRP recovery for Mi A2 Lite)
  • Format/Wipe /system and /data

Don't forget to change slots after installing the rom in TWRP!
You have to reboot TWRP to the "new" slot to install GApps!
Important notes:
  • * Required * firmware version must be based on P-based builds.
  • GApps can only be flashed on clean installs.
  • Formatting/Wiping data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage (in case of a format)) is a must if you were using a different rom previously.

1. Open the kernel ZIP file
2. Copy module/system/vendor/lib/modules/wlan.ko to module/system/lib/modules
3. Flash the kernel.

But you don't need a custom kernel to change the hue, there's an option for that in LOS settings.
