LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 9 (Pie), 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.

  • * Required * firmware version must be based on MIUI P-based builds.
  • GApps can only be flashed on clean installs.

I tried aosip and lineageos 16, I prefer los 16, although both roms are equally fluid. note that aosip spends a little more battery, although I used it very little. no proximity sensor works, it can also be used daily. for the camera I use the last bgc, I miss the functions of the stock camera, it is the only thing that is made of less than miui.

Pixel Launcher doesn't work with this ROM, crashes at launch.
Magisk works but had to download and install manually Magisk Manager.
Boot is slower than Pixel Experience Pie but once it boots this ROM is faster overall.

This is great news. I was a long time Lineage user on my Mi5. Using Notsyncing build now on Mix2s because of working proximity sensor. Hope you get it working soon.

Confirms issue.

Also, Quick Charging seems broken... Getting only 500mA from stock wall charger and stock cable. Removed battery info from Recovery and got 1500mA, which is still far below normal; and it reverts to 500mA after reboot!

Also when I enter twrp the battery percentage shown there is usually 20% lower than in LOS. Bizzare.

Guess it could be issue with uncalibrated battery info. Will do a full cycle and see if things change.

Thanks, and there is no possibility to instal MIUI kernel?

The notes state no:

"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."

Thanks Bruno for this! It's a rock solid ROM with excellent battery life and stability.

I wonder what are the differences between yours and notsyncing's. Is this version more stable?

notsyncing's version is a GSI/Treble build. This is a true polaris Lineage OS build made specifically for our device.

    Nightlies will be back once the next builds are queued and completed.

    Someone knows if the NFC payments works now.
    Thank you so much
    Should be fixed by the end of the month, once I merge the open changes that allow to build vendor image.
    17
    Any known updates / fixed for NFC past the 20190305 build anyone? @bgcngm can you give more information?
    NFC is working (including payments) with open source vendor, which is something that we're still working on.
