Zip verification fails.
Flashing without verification does give the lineage loader, but then turns to black screen. No launcher.
The volume buttons do show the volmue popup, same for the power button, i do get the options to shutdown, reboot. After a short while the device reboots. Again the lineage logo, then black screen. Bootloop.

During flashing, i do see the message digest file missing. Don't now if it's related.

Iv'e went into trwp again, try and grab the /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0 files. But the pstore folder was empty.

Another thing i initially encountered was that i was unable to wipe the data folder.
From what i researched, changing the storage format to ext2 and then back to ext4 would help.
And sure enough, after i didn't get the wipe errors.

The bootloop happened before the wipe error and after fixing.

Any advice?
The p9 lite venus VNS_L31 is for me an old device i still had lying around. Would be nice to give it new life.

Just a heads up, i figured out my problem (partially).
I had my sd card formatted in a special manner. There where some commands i found at some point to format the sd as internal storage for a huawei. Which can't officially be done.
I figured, let's take out the sd card, and sure enough, the device boots now.

Amazing work as always @surdu_petru :)
I followed it but wanted to contribute a bit
Thinking specifically about this post

My & likely many people's issue here, is the lack of camera support
Soo let me change this.

Since quite a bit, i've been using Android 8.1.0 , an alpha version released by Haky86 for couple of HiSilicon devices [it wasn't ment for the VNS]
Funnily he seems to have figured out quite a few issues ~ just with little exceptions.
Luckily on the same progress as the old screenshot you shared for LOS15

Before i jump over to Android 10,
~ Which files can i share you , so you can backport / copy ~ and add camera support for us ?
This is a collection of mirror uploads from the ROM that has cam support,
but i'll keep it running till you tell me if you need anything from /ROOT to copy working functionality
aosp_hi6250-8.1.0-OC-20200129-Haky86.zip

Google CAMv2 API (forgot the name) seems to work ~ patches
Same as Huawei P10 Camera patches and so on
Only Video has framerate issues but i remember it worked. Cam is perfectly fine

Again, great work
~ hope we can combine research to make this as daily runnable, as possible ! :)
* sadly no good HiSilicon Kernels beyond Nougat

If I remember right, on this ROM the SDcard is not working.
Would be great if the camera could be ported from there. :)
It does work for me, i daily it since January, 2020
Only magisk was a bit buggy and no kernel passes SE enforcing

Was focused at first on rewriting the partition-table, for Treble support
But i lack the knowledge. Was trying to get GSI to work on it

The only downside on HiSilicon, is the lack of good kernels :(
EliteMursa had great nougat kernels, but they dont work anymore
Many devs left this quite potent "media player" device :p
Meanwhile the honor rebrand and the P8 lite got full Treble support. Sad

This project here makes high hopes :)
Oh and device-fingerprint + DRM was broken on the clean Haky port
Backside fingerprint-unlock works

@VeiiTM - camera it's working on 8.1 but only on Nougat kernel based 4.1.18 .... on my updated kernel 4.4.xxx the camera will not working, as we need the new camera kernel drivers . Yes I already have the new camera kernel drivers for Oreo VENUS compatible, but unfortunately Huawei did not released the new VENUS camera blobs for Oreo !

New kernel based 4.4.xxx means no issue on Hardware video decoder and also no issue on Hardware composer ... that's why LOS 17.1 it's running as smoot as stock EMUI without any glitch or anything else like this !

Also, there will be not possible to boot on LOS 17.1 if we want to keep the older kernel 4.1.18 - just because Android 10 will not boot without Hardware composer enabled and properly implemented !

For the moment I gave up the camera in favor of a newer operating system ( LOS 17.1 vs LOS 15.1 ) with proper implementation of hwcomposer & hardware video decoder - which LOS 15.1 doesn't have them .... and let's not forget the most important part, a new kernel newer and updated until December 2020 - which makes the old device practically a new one !

The next Update of LOS 17.1 will bring the new kernel up to date 4.4.268 - something which can't be possible with the older 4.1.18 !


To Summarize: you have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the two possibilities:
- Android Oreo ( LOS 15.1, based on older kernel 4.1.18 without any new security patches) and without video decoder & hardware composer but with the working camera OR
- Android 10 ( LOS 17.1, based on the new kernel 4.4.xxx ) without working camera but with hardware composer & video decoder properly working !

Hello !



lineage-os-custom-rom.jpg



Android 10 is coming on your Huawei P9 Lite & Honor 5c, Kirin 650 SoC with the LineageOS 17.1 !


Devices Supported: All Huawei P9 Lite (VENUS) & Honor 5c (NEMO)


LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10 (Q), 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. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.


Warning !
Installing a custom ROM on your device can sometimes be difficult and also with unwanted consequences! Therefore, make sure that you understand exactly what risks this operation entails - you are the only one responsible for all actions taken on your device.


Android Q is based on a new updated Kernel Linux version 4.4.252

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)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
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.

    Hey! I installed this rom on a Huawei P9 Lite VNS-L23 and I was so glad to finally find a ROM with a single SIM working, everything else described on the description is working right but sadly I had to immediately get back to stock rom because this ROM seems to need 3 GB of RAM to properly function and VNS-L23 only has 2 GB.

    I installed pico GAPPS to make it more fluid since Google app was consuming almost all my memory, sadly some other apps like Chrome or Reddit are pretty much useless since it consumes every resource on the device.

    Is a great ROM though, thanks for the work on this!

    I'm aware. Just suggesting if it is possible, since you own the sources for your LOS 14.1.
    The sources code for LOS 14.1 have nothing to do with source code of LOS 17.1 and also they not running in the same kernel. For moment there's no way to fix 📷 on LOS 17.1, so for all wich need camera 📷, they can use stock EMUI or LOS 14.1 . Thanks for understanding ❤️
