Are you sure your device is encrypted? Maybe it just failed to encrypt.If that,clean flash again.

Explain better, why don't you want your device encrypted? It's more secure, there is no performance impact and you just have to introduce your password at boot.

Do you have to install after all dirty update?
Not quite that, I have only flashed after an update if the problem has appeared. There have been weeks that, after the update, the audio issues didn't appear, so I didn't flash the boot image.

I think you can't decrypt, but I'm not sure. But you can make a backup manually to your PC connecting your device and copying all the files via MTP, or using an usb flash drive connected with OTG. Then, after the ROM change, you can restore it manually.

I'm often needing to plug my charger in and out of the phone many times before it actually starts charging - I've tried multiple sockets and cables so it's not that - anyone else finding the same or remember hearing of a similar problem?
Yeah me too

Me too, I've been facing the same lately (for more than a month now). It started when using this ROM, but I don't remember which build nor firmware I was using. It's also happening on other ROMs including Treble ones even after several clean flashes, so I don't think it would be ROM related. Maybe firmware?

I think your original cables are going bad or your using bad cables ( could be the port too).
I been using a 2m long $2 cable for months with original charger no problem.

I had the same problem. I don't know if it's your case, but this was for me: dust!
I grabbed a pick and cleaned the USB port very carefully. You will be surprised by the amount of dust you get out of there...

After that, charging worked as intended.

    LineageOS 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.

    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:
    • Camera (and flashlight)
    • WiFi
    • NFC
    • Bluetooth
    • Telephony (Calls and Data)
    • Audio (Record and Playback)
    • Video Playback
    • Sensors
    • GPS
    • VoLTE

    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 8.0 firmware with proprietary blobs from MIUI 8.5.10 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:

    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. Last but not least, pleasure having @luca020400 and @LuK1337 onboard since the bring-up of the whole Xiaomi 8996 family, that lately did the major work in the O era.

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

    Who wants a taste of Oreo with working camera? Grab the fresh link in the first post.

    All credits goes to @highwaystar_ru for the huge help with the reverse engineering of the stock camera HAL.

    First of all, happy new year everyone! :highfive:

    I have just uploaded a new build with some more features ported (LiveDisplay is still broken), but the most important of all is that kernel is now based on the latest 8.1 tag and we're now using full CAF HALs (previous builds were compiled with display and media AOSP HALs). Feedback is appreciated, since this is again a major change.

    Last but not least, my "new" gemini should arrive tomorrow. :D

    So... Android 8.1 sources have dropped a couple days ago. :victory: Next release to be shared will hopefully be based on it (I don't expect any major issue to arise) and I'll keep using this thread. Stay tuned. ;)

    New build is up. Nothing really new in terms of features, but fixed audio and front facing camera render. Enjoy! :cool:
