Installation:
If you are on stock OS, you need a custom recovery first. You can get the recommended LineageOS recovery in the official installation instructions link below.
You can use TWRP for installation, however it is no longer officially supported since we do not have full control of its update cycle and potential issues.
Previous recommended TWRP image: twrp-3.2.3-20190209-kuntao.img

If you are coming from stock or other ROMs, you need to make a factory reset.
As always, make sure to backup before installing this ROM.

When You click on the link given by Mike You obtain the sreen here above, but chiron isn't kuntao.
You must then click in the left column on Lenovo to extend, then click on P2.
You will then see then the build 18.1 isn't still there.

Thank you mikeionnina for keeping our devices up to date!

Quick question:

>ROM Firmware Required:
>Any version of stock 6.0. Recommended P2a42_S251_171107_ROW

I have only flashed roms since I bought the device a few years back. Should I flash the stock firmware at some point? And where can I find it?

Currently reinstalling apps after a full wipe (System, data, cache, dalvik and "Format Data" TWRP option). No issues yet. And fingerprint enrollment worked for me.

It is unbelievable for me this phone gets "official" 5 major Android updates (the phone first released on Android 6). But here we are on Android 11. It can be done. Major thanks.

It shouldn't be an issue. If you had the latest official ROM (& firmware) installed before running custom ROMs, it should work.

Thanks Mike for his attempts keeping our device alive. This phone is worth to be kept up to date.

OTOH, we have a device like LG G2 which is either older and inferior to P2 and is still being maintained by LOS developers. I hope P2 remains on the line as long as G2 will be.

    I have a P2C72 64GB which was converted to P2A42 some years ago. I have been quite happy with the phone, so I haven't messed with it although I have thought about it a few times and had already done the waiting period for unlocking maybe 3 years ago. On Saturday I decided to go for it, and unlocked and installed this ROM with the recovery that goes with it and added MindtheGAPPs. Everything went very smoothly.

    And guess what? That's right - I think this ROM might be even better than the original ROM. Everything works as it should and it's smooth and crisp. Funnily enough, a long-standing issue I had with emails arriving without notifications being given has gone. Battery life is great as well. I'm a very happy camper.

    I just want to thank you for this ROM, Mike.

    Lenovo p2c72, twrp 3.6.2, magisk 23.0, ext4 partitions, updated to 2022-07-17 with the updater app. Everything smooth.

    Fantastic 18.1 ROM; thanks for your work Mike. Looking forward for los19!

    Next build will be including the battery drain fix, sorry it took so long I haven't really checked this thread in a long time.

    Will we get LineageOS 19.0?
    At the current state, no. 3.18 kernel is missing essential functionality for android 12. I have started some experiments with 4.9 kernel here: https://github.com/mikeNG/android_kernel_lenovo_msm8953/commits/lineage-18.1-4.9

    It's in very early state so I can't promise that will ever become fully functional. At the moment I have only tested recovery booting and display/volume button navigation work, however usb and touch aren't working so I can't debug much further yet.

    On the 2021-07-11 build, still no 652 MHz, warm phone on normal usage and noticeable battery drain.
    Here fix 652MHz-fix-kuntao install to via twrp
