LineageOS 15.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 8.1. (Oreo), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */

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. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). 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 our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

Requirements

* You must read this post completely
* You must have flashed a stock MM update to update the firmware to a version that is compatible with these builds. Search XDA for the best way to do so for your device (if you already did that prior to installing any Nougat ROM, you are fine!).
* You must use the search first and make sure your question has not been answered yet!
* Do NOT ask for the availability of features or if any specific app works - we implement / announce new features when we want to
* Use the latest TWRP available, otherwise expect issues
* If you have a problem, do not ask if someone else has it. Post with logs or don't post at all!


Code:
[COLOR=RED][B]Important note:[/B][/COLOR]
Stock Firmware B360 and B370 are known to cause bootloops!
(Generally: if your stock ROM supports VoLTE it is likely that it is also affected!)
All others might work, please do not ask in here how to up- or downgrade!

Known Issues / NOT working / "Bugs"

* Search the thread!
* Anything running VoLTE firmware
* You tell me! (See "Other Issues")

Everything else WORKS, do NOT ask if anything (feature, function, ...) specific is working or not (Search the thread if you want to make sure and if you don't find it: test it yourself)


Other Issues?

Before posting on this thread, make sure of a few things:
You've utilized the search function of the forums. Nothing irritates us more than lazy people who do not search for an answer before asking or ask the same question over and over again.
If you are the only one having a problem: boot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset, reflash the rom/gapps and nothing else. Boot up and see if the problem persists.

LOGS LOGS LOGS!!!!
Press BOTH volume keys + power key - it will vibrate very short. Wait until a notification appears that the bugreport is ready, send it to your mail and post it.
Alternatively go to dev options (press "build number" in "About phone" 7 times to activate it), activate the switch "Shortcut for bugreport", then go to Settings->Keys->Power key and activate it there as well. Long press power-key and then use the new menu item.

Only if rooted:
Use this: SysLog by Tortel

If you have a hard reboot (to the vendor boot logo, not the LineageOS boot logo), use adb or any other file explorer tool to pull a copy of "console-ramoops" after the reboot and provide that.

Code:
adb pull /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops

Note: We will not support any kind of modification on the ROM not done by our sources. If you are running XPosed, Kernel Booster or whatever occurs to you, we won't support you in any way. The problem will in every case be treated as the additional softwares' fault (because often it is!)

Changelog

* Gerrit (All)
* Device tree
* Kernel

Download Links
ROM: https://download.lineageos.org/kiwi

Again: if you need Google-Apps, install them after flashing the ROM and BEFORE the first reboot!

Google apps addon:
(Note: Not required to run the ROM)
We are using Open GApps (Link) Arm64 version, others might also be working (make sure to use ARM 64bit when using other providers!)

Note: In case you want to use any gapps, YOU MUST install the right gapps the first time that you flash a marshmallow ROM. Do not boot with an older gapps or without one and then try to install it later.
Note: If you install a package which replaces the default dialer (mostly "Stock Gapps") you have to go to Settings->Apps->Gear-Icon and set the new dialer as a default telephony app to prevent force closing of apps

Root addon:
Official download site - our device is ARM64

Don't use SuperSU or other tools, otherwise expect bootloops!

Important note

This is a development thread. This means it is NOT your personal support thread.
Questions about anything not related to LineageOS on kiwi (Honor 5X) will not be accepted nor be answered.
This includes topics like going back to stock, problems with third-party apps (e.g. Snapchat), ...
Also do not encourage people with such questions by answering them but report them to keep the thread clean!

FAQ

Q: Why the **** did it take so long?
A: Besides the fact that I don't really need to answer about my working speed:
I have actively been working on bringing up 8.x for this device since February. Some might have seen some development going on with the kernel on 14.1, but effectively this was all in preparation for 15.1: The kernel being used in this version of the ROM is completely redone:
We threw away what we had and started fresh with a plain qcom kernel. Then we re-added what we needed, effectively ending in around 700k lines less of custom additions by the OEM.

Q: Why didn't you share it before, so others could work on it as well?
A: Because last time we did that, someone else came along, compiled our work and shared it himself. (Not to start about all the other copy&paste-ROMs who could have done the work as well but usually just wait for us to do it)

Q: Anything else to add?
A: Yes: read the first post before replying or testing the ROM!

    Update:
    LineageOS 15.1 for kiwi went official today. First builds to arrive most probably tomorrow. Update from official 14.1 to official 15.1 should be no issue, still, a backup is recommended!
    The same rule still applies: No logs, no issue!
    I will rename this thread right after this post, no new thread will appear.

    Enjoy

    New build

    New build available:
    It is selinux enforcing, meaning that any access across processes is now prohibited. This also means that any required access which we didn't need here during testing will not work for you.
    In case you already used a build before and with that one something stops working, please report back with logs! (I'll hide any post WITHOUT LOGS!)

    What's new
    exFAT support is back (through sdFAT)
    SELinux is Enforcing (google it if you want additional infos + see above)
    Core hotplugging is back -> all builds up to now had 8 cores running all the time, now you'll get some cores shut off agin when they aren't required
    Battery profiles are back -> Settings->Battery->Power saver and performance

    Link: (Clicking it means you have read and understood what I said above and in the first post!)


    Edit: Looks like I actually forgot to set it enforcing, will put up another build in the evening / tomorrow
