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.

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 MIX - 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 8.8.30 Global dev, otherwise installation will fail.
  • 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 everyone involved in Xiaomi 8996 development. The LineageOS team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!​

Proximity sensor keeps activating itself and shutting off the screen. ROM is unusable because it's impossible to get past the splash screen due to the constant screen offs

How you know that the problem is the proximity sensor? What firmware are you using?

O notice that sometimes the screen doesn't go completely off and keeps some back-light on.

Using firmware 8.8.9 from xiaomi.eu Android 8.0 MIUI weeklies. I believe it's the proximity sensor because that's what usually causes the screen to turn off in a normally functioning phone. I have not noticed what youre describing. For me, after I press the power button to turn on the phone, the screen shuts itself off after 1 or 2 seconds. It's why I said the ROM is unusable, no offense, because I literally cannot get past the first page of the setup.

I don't think that the problem is the proximity sensor, because of was the proximity sensor the screens only goes off when the sensor is cover, and that's not true, the screen goes off always.

And it's important to test and try to figure what's the problem to help solving this issue.

Ok, little Sherlock, i let you solve that case and found problem with all testing stuff. I'm sure you do this with your deduction ability, but don't forget to invite Watson and all Scotland Yard, because that investigation is hard and dangerous.
:D

    When do you exect that the next build would be delivered?
    I will probably release a new build after this month's ASB is merged.
    8
    New build is up, with quite a lot of changes including November's ASB. Enjoy. :cool:
    6
    New build is up with ANT+ support. Make sure that you install an OpenGapps package released in the last couple of days. Any package older than two days will result in bootloops due to missing priv-app permissions.
