Please do note that you HAVE to resize your partition with the tool above, otherwise the ROM will NOT install.
Hey brother, First of all thanks a lot for keeping this device alive! Any idea about LTE? It seems to not be working in my device, the ROM is fluid smooth and works without any bugs! Thanks brother!
Oops! forget to mention few things for the people who want to install this ROM:

1.You have to RESIZE the SYSTEM PARTITION! without doing so, the ROM won't install!!!

2. How to resize the system partition? Here's how:
Go to the above link and follow the instructions to resize your system partition.
(Recommended resize gb is 2.00gb)

3. After installing the ROM, it could take 40 to 45 minutes to boot into the system (mine took 30 min).

4. When you boot into the ROM, it might be very laggy and the device might heat up very rapidly, it's not a problem, wait for 10min or so for the device to cool down then start using your device. It'll become smooth like butter.

HUGE THANKS TO THE DEVELOPER (@nicknitewolf) OF THIS ROM FOR KEEPING REDMI 2/ REDMI 2 PRIME ALIVE!!!!
THANKS @nicknitewolf !!!!!!!

I got an error when executing the resize partition script, it said unknown partition detected (or something like that). I did that with latest official TWRP.
So I try to download the reccomended TWRP from the OP, but the link seems not working.
Any suggest to past that error? I don't try the other partition resizer methode yet... Thanks in advance

thanks dev, good rom even if the features are not many ... it is enough to change the system size to 1.5gb to install this rom. 1 day of use has not found a bug.

Initial impressions of LOS 18.1

1. Rom runs smoothly without gapps (i think gapps are causing higher boot time)
2. No bugs till now using for more than a day.(i will report if anything found)
3. system partition of minimum 1.5 gb required to install.

Just asking:

I know the resize tool will make the OEM partition bigger than stock, but it's still too small for vendor image without compressed using squashfs.

Why didn't you make it to fit uncompressed vendor image altogether?

Nope, I never resizing my partition before.. I believe I still have the original partition layout.
This guy before me have the same error then he try the unsupported methode, while I still figure out how to pass the error on official tool.
Additional info, mine is 1/8 not 2/16 model...

I can’t really test the 8gb version. I would need the original partition layout. (I HAVE TO EMPHASISE TO USE THE ORIGINAL UNMODIFIED PARTITIONS BEFORE DOING THE FOLLOWING)

Import parted into recovery as per this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/wt88047-redmi-2-resize-system-partition.3612933/

Code:
./parted /dev/block/mmcblk0
u b p

Reply with the output.
If anyone want Gapps and try above nano for arm for andriod 11.

Use MindTheGapps
