LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 6, 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. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.



What's working :
  • RIL (Calls, SMS, Data)
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Video Playback
  • Audio
  • Sensors
  • LED
  • GPS



Known issues:
  • Camera
  • Flash
  • Mic (Works only with calls but can't use sound record)



Follow Instructions Carefully otherwise you will get error :
  • Wipe cache, dalvic cache,system,data
  • Reboot into recovery again
  • Flash ROM-Flash Gapps
  • Done-Reboot Now
  • Enjoy the clean rom

To Flash or format internal storage TWRP of karthick's should be display the options which is only giving me black screen.
I think TWRP is booted successfully but we won't getting it's graphical screen.

flash it once again this time check your bootloader status also . if it is locked or unlocked . also if that did not works try flashing sevenmax recovery and then flash the image via the same recovery and reboot .

Same I want to understand you that only seven max recovery is working. Also bootloader is already unlocked to flash recovery :)
Sevenmax recovery is able to give graphical display but when trying to flash mentioned from zip it gives an error this ROM is for karate and your device is k33a42. That's the issue. Hope you are trying it for Lenovo k6 power. Because I haven't got this type of error in my custom MIUI ROM which I am trying to port for this device.

    Hello, I have been trying to install Lineage 14.1 on my K6 (K33b36). But the recovery always reports
    Error 7: this package is for karate and this device is K33a48
    What should I do now?
    I tried editing the updater-script but then I get Error 6.
    Also tried with different TWRP versions and got the same error

    On a FB group of K6, many users have installed this ROM sucessfully and nobody has said what should be my solution.
    Thank you in advance


    You probably have the TWRP Version by Sevenmaxs installed.

    You need to go at http://karthick111.me/k6/twrp/
    (With both the errors should not appear)
    Download one of the Recovery images
    Go into Recovery mode
    Flash the new Recovery (Flash image > Choose img > Choose Recovery > Flash)
    Reboot into Recovery
    Do a Factory reset
    Flash the ROM

    Hello, can u provide a simple but detailed instruction on how to install Lineage 14.1 on my Lenovo K6 Power. If i install it what are the shortcomings that i should be aware of. My phone is not rooted. Currently its updated to Nougat stock rom. which is highly unstable

    Unlock Your Bootloader:
    - Enable Developer options
    - Activate OEM Unlock
    - Go to your Computer and install the Lenovo K6 Drivers
    - Download this tool: http://www53.zippyshare.com/v/YEqtJIa6/file.html
    - Get your K6 into Fastboot mode
    - Extract the Zip
    - Open the application in the ZIP
    - If successful

    |
    V

    Flash TWRP:
    - Download this zip: http://www53.zippyshare.com/v/RmmKsBbt/file.html
    - Extract it
    - Get your K6 into Fastboot mode
    - Open the Application
    - If successful

    |
    V

    Flash new TWRP:
    - Go to http://karthick111.me/k6/twrp/
    - Download one of the Recovery images
    - Turn your Smartphone off
    - Hold Power and Volume Up until The Lenovo Logo appears the second time
    - Click Recovery (if it does not start into the Recovery automatically)
    - Click Install
    - Click on flash images
    - Choose the new recovery Image
    - It asks for where to flash ( Choose Recovery (makes sense :D))
    - Continue by starting
    - If finished, bo back to the main menu of TWRP
    - Click Reboot
    - Click Recovery (It loads the new installed recovery)
    - Then Reboot to System

    I
    V

    Flash ROM:
    - Download LineageOS 14.1 here: http://karthick111.me/k6/lineage-14.1/
    - Download gApps here: http.opengapps.org (choose Arm, Android 7.1 and then you can decide which variant)
    - Boot into Recovery
    - Go to Wipe => Advanced Wipe => Select Dalvik, Cache, Data, System
    - Start wiping
    - Then return to main menu
    - Click Install
    (- Click on flash zips)
    - Go to LineageOS zip
    - Flash
    - If finished, flash gApps Zip
    - Reboot to System

    LineageOS should be Installed then and ready to use!

    Shortcomings:
    - Apps will be deleted
    - Internal Storage also if you did not make an backup of it
    (I haven't tried 14.1 yet, so I can't say anything about it, but in previous posts are some issuses listed)
