This thread hosts personal builds of LOS 16.0 and other Android 9 (Pie) ROMs for Mix 2, currently built from @wight554 's trees. Similar to Oreo, full credits to Wight and others behind the scene for the bringup, allowing us to build upon the awesome work.
Currently I build the following ROMs, usually monthly (in sync with security patch):
- LineageOS 16.0
- ResurrectionRemix 7
- AOSPExtended 6
- PixelExperience 9
Small changes in my builds:
- Default stretch-to-fullscreen (force apps to render in 18:9) - LOS official solution defaults to OFF, which complicates setup
- Grey-blue DeskClock color scheme (when possible)
- Navbar stays on the right side of the screen under 270° rotation (optional - set the behaviour with "setprop persist.ui.seascape.disable <true|false>" in a rooted shell)
- Signature spoofing support from MicroG
- Coming from official MIUI? Since the new encryption has been implemented, you only need to wipe (not format) /data.
- Flash any Pie firmware (firmware Stable V10.4.1.0 recommended) for builds starting from May, or firmware Stable V10.0.2.0 otherwise.
- Use official TWRP or OrangeFox.
- Download the latest build and optionally GAPPS (PE comes with GAPPS though, don't use any from external sources)
- Reboot to TWRP
- Flash the latest build, GAPPS and whatever other additions you need
- Read here if you want to use unencrypted data - post is from Oreo thread, but still applies to Pie
- SourceForge folder: https://sourceforge.net/projects/andyyan/files/ - new releases in the "9" folder
- Root: use Magisk
- Google Apps: http://opengapps.org/
About "official" status:
- Currently I don't plan to apply for "official" for any of these ROMs, because 1) Wight is the actual maintainer who did the bringup and maintenance work, and 2) I like to be able to apply changes at will to the OS itself without restrictions from the official team.
