Is the any way to know who build it ? is this file safe ?

I think it's safe because I hope people who runs the telegram group aren't sharing unsafe stuff.... Actually, I hope so.

I've installed this one with 8.1.4 firmware along with Mrmathematica kernel since it fixes CPU speed for 32GB versions. It's working good, no issues so far and solid Nougat battery life, for me fast charging is not working, even before flashing kernel and stuff, so that's the only downside at the moment..

Alright.
I believe fast charging doesn't work because you are using oreo based firmware.
I'm running latest official 14.1 (a bit unconfortable with flashing unofficial from telegram) with V9.5.2.0 FW fast charging and everything works great.

I actually inatalled the ROM with that firmware then updated to an Oreo based because QC wasn't working... I'll try to flash that one once again. Thanks for your report.

Edit: flashed back the 9.5.2.0 firmware and quick charge is working. ;)

The same as uptade a nightly or do a clean install.

ROM: https://archive.org/download/lineage...ini-signed.zip
Gapps: https://opengapps.org/?api=7.1&variant=nano
Flash the latest Magisk (16.x) too : https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/beta-magisk-v13-0-0980cb6-t3618589
Then camera2api: IMPORTANT Google Camera does not work without Camera2API, please ensure it is enabled on your ROM. If not, use this Magisk Module to conveniently enable Camera2API.
C2API_enabler_v1500.zip: https://xiaomifirmware.com/download/8603/
Gcam (Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V8 or higher): https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=76858719&postcount=3720

PS: If V8 version gets FC, use V6: https://xiaomifirmware.com/download/8603/

I install (Rom, Gapps, Magisk) with the latest TWRP, any firmware after 20180220.
After the first complete boot, use Magisk to install C2API then reboot the phone.
Then, install the Gcam apk.

Unfortunately, I didn't achive this results. The best were it:

Isn't the same as my screenshots using 14.1 (20171010) but is much better than Oreo based or Miui 7/8.
For while, there isn't way to use Oreo.

I have been strees the phone this last days and it is the problem combined with almost 90 apps and Dual SIM Cards.
But, 2h of SOT and 69% remaing isn't a bad result. When the phone is idle, it's will be really in idle and allow the phone get deep sleep:

If you won't achieve this numbers, well, you will need do analisys your apps with magisk + wakelock apps. Greenify PRO could be necessary for stubborn apps that don't go to the bed when you were on it.
After, restrict some of them like turn off start on boot, keep awake and run in backgroud. I did it to my all (90) apps. :fingers-crossed:

Some new instructions to achieve the best results were added like Gcam, and Camera2api.
Its really used in 14.1 to get best and rapid shots cause stock LOS camera isn't work OIS and EV correctly.

Works OIS for you when you recording videos on GCam?

I didn't try it yet. But slow motion 120fps works very well.
Just use Camera2api 1500v with Gcam by Arnova8G2 V6 and check it yourself.

I think it will work fine. OIS doesn't work on LOS 14.1 with Camera stock. The best option is Gcam + addon.

Hey, can you give me a link for 9.5.2.0 firmware? I just can't find it in this forum, thank you for your help sir.

Just a note for others who may be in a similar situation to myself:
- I was running Lineage 14.1, with a version from sometime around August 2017. Had been running well for many months.
- Last month of two ->increasing lag, terrible battery life, freezing, dropping mobile signal etc. etc., despite trying a variety of measures (clearing cache/davlik, uninstalling apps etc. etc.)
- Lots of trouble trying to install the most recent version of Lineage 14.1
- as part of trying to trouble-shoot the above, ended up flashing MIUI 10 Global 8.9.13 Beta
-> I was expecting to hate MIUI and reflash something else almost immediately - BUT - all previously mentioned problems are resolved - MIUI 10 is pretty slick actually - I love my Mi5 again!

Is it normal for cpu speeds to bypass kernel adiutor frequencies? I've set 1036 max speed and I see 2150 get used even on simple tasks.
Kernel is Soda B1.2.1. I think it's getting bypassed by the battery profile, does not happen if I use power save rather than efficiency. Edit: seems like it was the kernel causing it, flashed rom again and doesn't get that issue.

Getting 5hours sot with 40% battery left, which is great.

I'm facing the same problem, in particular the terrible battery life. A clean install of Lineage 14.1 shouldn't fix the problem?

Regards

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1 (Nougat), 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.

    GPL compliance:

    Broken:
    • Nothing. :)

    Working:
    • Everything except 'broken' stuff
      (see also second post for info on recurring questions)

    Compatibility:
    Compatible with all Xiaomi Mi 5 variants (32GB / 64GB / 128GB). Xiaomi Mi 5S and 5S Plus are not supported.
    Builds are based off the Xiaomi's Android 7.0 firmware with proprietary blobs from MIUI 8.1.4 dev package.​

    Downloads:

    Notice:
    • No custom kernels are supported in this thread. Only stock kernel and official builds will be supported. No bug reports if that's not the case.

    Installation:
    • Reboot to recovery (TWRP recovery for Mi 5 - Direct link)
    • Format /system, /data and /cache
    • Install LineageOS zip package
    • Install [optional] the LineageOS su addon to get root (there are obviously other root methods, but this is the recommended one as it survives to OTA updates)
    • Install [optional] a Google Apps package of your choice (Open GApps is advisable, but stock and super variants are not recommended!!!)
    Important notes:
    • Current minimal * required * firmware version is MIUI 8.1.4 Global dev, otherwise installation will fail. Download the latest dev fastboot package directly from Xiaomi and flash it prior to installing LineageOS or, alternatively, download and install one of the latest custom packages containing firmware only (at your own risk).
    • GApps can only be flashed on clean installs.
    • Formatting data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage) is a must if MIUI was previously installed and device was encrypted.

    Credits & collaborations:
    This work is due to efforts from Mi5Devs founding members (@h2o64 and me) that did the full device bring-up. Huge thanks to @deovferreira for all the help during the kernel bring-up after source code dropped. Also thanks to @ValoXis for giving me the motivation I needed and to @shade.sh for compiling unofficial builds during the transition phase.

    Finally, all LineageOS team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!​

    I really hope that everyone realizes that this is a development thread, aiming to provide support to official LineageOS for Xiaomi Mi 5. Everything that falls into unofficial category (e.g. unofficial builds and custom kernels) is not supported and not allowed here.

    Also be more respectful and grateful for the work I have already put into this. Think twice before saying that I don't care to fix things. For those who are not happy, you have plenty other ROMs out there. Funny enough, all based on Mi5Devs work.

    Some notes due to recurring questions:
    • Camera OIS can be recalibrated, if needed, with the following app: https://github.com/dobragab/Mi5CameraCalibrate.
    • Devices assembled with LGD panels may have less responsive hardware keys (recents and back) due to old touchscreen drivers released by Xiaomi. The workaround at the moment is to enable on-screen buttons and wait for more updated drivers in the next kernel source code release.
    • QC3.0 is not fully working and will be fixed when the next kernel source code drops.

    The most requested/wanted feature of all time is finally ready. @h2o64 and me spent countless hours in at least three different approaches.

    You can enjoy in probably a couple of days.

    Sadly, I regret to inform that I may have to drop official support for this device. The touchscreen replacement that I have received two days ago went fine, but the issue remains. I still get the random failures where touchscreen stops responding and I can't use the device as daily driver this way. I barely can use it for development either because I have to restart it over and over to get a few minutes of working touch. :(

    This is a pity because I liked Mi 5 a lot and a big loss as mine was the 128GB version with ceramic back. Luckily I have the good old M8 dual SIM, which has been my daily driver for a while now. That said, I am not looking for a new flagship to replace Mi 5 (yes, I don't think Mi 6 can justify the price) and already thought of buying a new one, but it seems that's no longer sold. Is there any good soul out there that eventually has switched to a newer flagship and wants to sell his Mi 5? :eek:
    So, this won't be goodbye after all... luckily two very kind users showed up and offered me their no longer used devices for a symbolic price.

    I still have a Mi5 128 GB version in white and I dont need it anymore.
    I've followed you through CM 13.1, LOS 14.1, and beta tested 15.

    We've chatted through messenger several times.

    I have the identical version, the black, ceramic 128gb. I've recently upgraded to a OnePlus 5T. I'll give you a deal if you want to continue?
    I really got to say thanks once again to you both. :highfive: I ended up buying from @mabor01 due to better shipping time and costs (and no customs involved).

    For everyone else, also a huge thanks for backing me up and supporting me with donations. :D
