LineageOS for BLU Pure XL (MT6795)
Discussion and Q&A Thread​

This is a Project Thread for LineageOS for BLU Pure XL. Project files and releases are hosted on SourceForge's servers.
Here you can ask for help and get fresh info about development status.

This project focuses on getting working LineageOS 14.1 for our phone. This would also work for other clones like Allview X2 Soul Xtreme, Condor Allure A100 and Gionee Elife E8.

Here you will be able to review (Git integration) and download files. Also, there I will upload some screenshots. When the project reaches "Alpha" status I will create a development thread for the ROM itself in the Android Development section.

There you are also able to download the latest working TWRP 3.1.0-0 (the same is in this thread).

Any chance we will have a working ROM other than OEM , cause I have the Allview model and the ROM is piece of crap , and I want to sell the phone because I have enough to try to fix all the software crap on this phone :((

Hey I have a Blu Life One X2. I am a developer and have made some really good findings. I also built some tools (autoroot, toolkit, etc..).
We have an unofficial website here: http://www.blox2.com
I made my own rom, and so have a few others. We based it off the stock roms, as we cant get any other rom booting (except CM13; lots of bugs)
If possible, can you assist us? Like:
1. Did you port lineage or compile it? What guides did you follow (links please)?
2. Have you compiled the kernel? Our kernel will not boot no matter what (compiled with a ton of different toolchains too);
3. What device do you use for porting?
4. Do you have a /system RW crash (crash when mounting system as RW)?

Thanks!

@bemolx has forgotten about this device and has moved on to other devices and in the process has left all of us hanging he pays more attention on other devices just look at his profile @bemolx has made huge promises but has lied to us uploading half ass things which are buggy and literally **** he's forgotten about all of us who were looking towards him but he doesnt care I understand that he's not our slave and doesnt have to do anything but making false promises and playing with the feelings of other people is also not a good thing

I understand your disappointment.
However, it's not that simple as you may think. As a student I have to focus on school subjects and it really takes pretty much my whole free time. Also, this school year I have to defend my diploma thesis and this is my main task to focus on as for now.
You've mentioned my work on other devices too - yeah, I have couple of them to play with. But it doesn't mean I forgot about Pure XL. Other devices are just easier to deal with than this freaking Chinese clone. All of them have been maintained at the same time. Source code is always available on my GitHub profile, wanna try yourself?
If I have been paid (don't mind, just an example) $1000, I would have made a working custom ROM in a week! But I'm not and this is only my intention to do so. As for a freelancer dev it's not that important thing. I promised the custom ROM, you'll see it, in the future, not now.
Anyway, what the hell you've been expecting with MTK-based Chinese clone from the company that doesn't care about their customers and has made one, maybe two OTAs...?

You´re completely right. We thank you for your time and effort put to make this phone be more awesome. BLU is the big liar here. I don´t even use my phone as a Blu Pure XL, instead I use the X2Xtreme rom fully.
Take your time @bemolx and don´t mind what non-developers say in the forums, they´re always asking for ETAs and to make things better just for their daily use and dont know the effort put behind every custom thing made.
I really hope you succeed on your thesis (good) cheers man!

Yeah no I understand what @Superbat1680 is trying to say but at the same time I also understand what @bemolx is going this being a Final year student who also has to defend his thesis I can understand pretty much what he's going through
I'd just like to say that may you be successful in your defense and hopefully we can get a good custom rom in the near future
Good luck mate???

@bemolx
Well for now focus on finishing the university, we'll be rooting for you and maybe in the near future or so after you finish with all, when you have free time and the spirit to start working on a custom rom for this phone we'll see you post an update. I personally would love if you could make a version of android that is the latest like Oreo is now...until then I hope you're having a great day.

Hi guys,
I'm working on implementing CLT for Pure XL to get a booting GSI Treble image. I'd say it will be a semi-Treble ROM rather that pure Treble or custom ROM. I hope I will post some update soon.
Who knows, maybe even Pie will boot, who knows..
Cheers

Can't wait to test this rom on my Allview X2 Soul Xtreme and of course give you feedback.
I don't know if it's because of the stock rom or not, but the phone just freezes from time to time(making me force restart the phone), especially when it get hot. Maybe... hopefully this rom will help with that.
Besides, being unable to update from 5.1.1 makes it that some apps are incompatible which sucks.
Thank you bemolx for all the time and effort put into this rom and we all wish you the best.

    Yes, it's not booting, I know it. I've just uploaded it for testing purposes. When I get it booting, I will post some info.
