This thread was formerly "[ROM][9] LineageOS 16.0 + AOSPExtended + PixelExperience // personal builds" - yes, once again, the title can't fit the full names of all these ROMs :/

This thread hosts personal builds of LOS 16.0 and other Android 9 (Pie) ROMs for Mix 2, currently built from @wight554 's trees. Similar to Oreo, full credits to Wight and others behind the scene for the bringup, allowing us to build upon the awesome work.

Currently I build the following ROMs, usually monthly (in sync with security patch):
  • LineageOS 16.0
  • ResurrectionRemix 7
  • AOSPExtended 6
  • PixelExperience 9

Small changes in my builds:
  • Default stretch-to-fullscreen (force apps to render in 18:9) - LOS official solution defaults to OFF, which complicates setup
  • Grey-blue DeskClock color scheme (when possible)
  • Navbar stays on the right side of the screen under 270° rotation (optional - set the behaviour with "setprop persist.ui.seascape.disable <true|false>" in a rooted shell)
  • Signature spoofing support from MicroG
  • ...

What's working:
  • Everything?

Instructions:
  • Coming from official MIUI? Since the new encryption has been implemented, you only need to wipe (not format) /data.
  • Flash any Pie firmware (firmware Stable V10.4.1.0 recommended) for builds starting from May, or firmware Stable V10.0.2.0 otherwise.
  • Use official TWRP or OrangeFox.
  • Download the latest build and optionally GAPPS (PE comes with GAPPS though, don't use any from external sources)
  • Reboot to TWRP
  • Flash the latest build, GAPPS and whatever other additions you need
  • Reboot

Extras:
  • Read here if you want to use unencrypted data - post is from Oreo thread, but still applies to Pie

Downloads:

About "official" status:
  • Currently I don't plan to apply for "official" for any of these ROMs, because 1) Wight is the actual maintainer who did the bringup and maintenance work, and 2) I like to be able to apply changes at will to the OS itself without restrictions from the official team.

Just an additional note: I'm not as enthusiastic about building ROMs as I was early this year, so expect less regular updates and/or unanswered fix/feature requests. I'm just a builder, not nearly as capable of Demon or Wight doing all the heavy lifting, so I'll only do what my ability/time permits.

Folks who have tried, please do let me know about the battery consumption. This build added some CPU governors to the kernel and defaulted little cluster to one of them, and I'm not sure of its actual impact. It's my first time fiddling with kernels and I can't guarantee the change will be satisfactory.

Are the quick settings on the status bar still a bit off on PE edition?

I acknowledge the lack of padding there, but I don't quite want to look into it now. It's supposed be a problem for PE upstream anyway.

Greetings!
I've downloaded the rom last night. And until now, I have no problem: the camera works perfectly, the sound sound good and gaming performance are good.
The thing which attracted me was the mention of "Lineage OS" and I'm not disappointing to see that it's so close of the official and stable version :). I'm blind in context of "find the bugs", so maybe we could find some but this is not my domain.

Is it possible to have the full screen for apps in this rom? I mean the option without the bars on the top and the botom of the screen

Expanded Desktop is a feature that will surely be merged in the future. As the other user said, there are 3rd-party apps that can achieve the same goal. I myself am using Tiles since it places a shortcut in Quick Settings.

Hi I haven't touched this kind of thing I'm a few months and I forget some of the finer details.

I have a few questions.

Firstly, do you have to add treble to your mix 2 to get this to run, or is that optional? If so can someone please send me a link to the thread. Would be greatly appreciated.

Secondly, I am on RR6 based on 8.1, if I just do a general wipe and flash the new ROM and gapps over the top, will this cause issues?

Lastly, I am on Icemans TWRP, do I HAVE to use the one suggested in the description (I did read it before someone yells at me, I just want to know if I HAVE to, because I'd need to set up ADB on a PC again and that would be a real pain in the behind).

Many thanks in advance as usual guys. Love your work and appreciate your patience and effort with this kind of thing. God bless :)

Treble is built into the ROM itself, you don't need to flash anything to achieve it.
Judging from the fact that you're using a super old TWRP though, you likely are on an old/unencrypted RR, and thus will need DecScript if you don't want to format /data (read OP).
That TWRP is MANDATORY, though most TWRP builds allows flashing images within ("install image" option), so you might not need a PC.

That was really helpful thanks. I am running unencrypted and what do you mean treble is but into the rom? Is it old style with device drivers built in or will flashing the new ROM flash the drivers to whatever partition they have to go to and give me treble?

This is Treble-enabled but this is NOT a GSI (Generic System Image). You still flash as you would do a regular ROM, just with a Treble-enabled recovery.

Quick update to sync with Wight's updated battery data - from this build on you're supposed to use newer firmwares. OP has been updated with the mandatory new firmware requirement and TWRP build from Wight.

Thanks for your work,I have used aex for two days.It is very nice.But I notice a small problem that sometimes the fingerprint unlock is very slow and I have to touch several times to unlock it.Is it a bug of this rom?

    New builds.
    Synced with upstream.
    - Final Pie builds - I've cleared the workspaces already
    - Finally able to keep up with the latest vendor blobs after the GitHub DMCA incident
    - Sep. security patch
    - PE is now "Plus", which is their way of calling PE builds with light customization - you can upgrade from older builds just fine

    BTW, I'm dropping AEX since it's the least used, and the worst maintained out of the 4 I build (still no Sep. patch). This means even if I build 10 I won't be looking at AEX.

    Real life business is only gonna get more tense from here on out, so don't hold your breath for 10 builds from me.

    And that's it. Hope you enjoyed the Pies, and see you in the future.

    New builds.
    Synced with upstream.
    - AEX/PE still haven't merged Aug. patch as of today (and PE doesn't even show a sign of trying to merge it), not gonna wait for it anymore

    Probably the last Pie builds from me, since Q is expected to drop shortly.
    Firmware and TWRP recommendations are updated again, though as with last time you don't *need* to follow.
    10
    New builds.
    Synced with Wight and upstream.
    - Offline charging works again
    - LOS, new users only: re-enabled setup wizard

    Unlike what Wight did recently with NOS, I didn't (and won't) sign my builds - this is to cater to the greater crowd of users that don't read these notes (for whatever reason). If you want to use GPay, use Magisk Canary.


    One thing I know for sure, Pie blobs will enable WeChat fingerprint payment support. Although this might not matter to you, it's an example of what up-to-date blobs can do.
