Hi and thanks for the ROM! I need some help. Could you point to a good 64bit recovery to install before this ROM?
I used this one TWRP 3.3.1-0), but it hasn't worked and I don't know whether it is 32 or 64 bit. I got some "error 255" when flashing the ROM, then tried to restore the system backup, but now my phone can't stop rebooting into the recovery. Pleaasse heelp...
By the way I'm attaching the recovery.log. It says this:
E:Can't execute '/tmp/updater': Exec format error
Updater process ended with ERROR: 255

This rom is fantastic!
I miss the automatic call recording feature in this rom. Manual activation on every calls working correctly, but it is impractical.

Will be this rom as official Lineage Rom?
Re: auto-recording calls, look here:
The Dialer.apk published by patkk has that option. Works for me as expected, with lineage-18.1-20210829-UNOFFICIAL-pine.zip and PBRP-pine-3.1.0-20210523-1806-UNOFFICIAL.zip.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11 (R), 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. 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.

    Base source code is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to the project, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    If you know Russian or competent use a translator (I advise deepl.com), you can look at the Russian forum 4pda, it's there 99% of everything there is for this phone, as well as there are many knowledgeable in this subject deeply people. In general, I advise you to look for more channels, forums and chats, I did not discounted all.

    Also, you can get acquainted with people like Akira, cafebabe, REVERS, YaAlex. They do more than half of all the work and as well as every possible continue to work and improve, in general, if possible support them if you need me to send their details.


    Although the phone is already old, but you can still get all the juice out of it. I advise you to test the firmware Crdroid 7.8 OFFICIAL, the core cherrykernel, I can throw you modem from redmi 8a it improves communication by about 15%. Also advise to install 502 andreno drivers improves fluency and adds 3-5 fps in games. For sound I suggest NLSound + M.A.L library R7a + you can try if you know how to add 64 bit libraries from mi 11 ultra. I also advise to format /data and /cache partition to f2fs, this will work faster but you need to install kernel which supports f2fs and modify fstab for details see t.me/RALegacy. And for the camera of course gcam. If you need presets write me and I'll tell you where to get them

    I no longer use it myself have moved on to the poco m3, I think the best phone that is now available at an affordable price. I would also suggest taking a look at the redmi 9t

    Good luck!

    Thanks for this rom. I have tried many roms for Redmi 7a, but this one is by far the smoothest and even makes browsing internet on this phone a good experience. The only shortcomming is no bass in music. Preinstalled AudioFX doesn't seem to work at all, the bass boost slider doesn't do anything. Either way, still the best rom.
