Am I the only one who has problem with activating WiFi?

The symptom is that it take 5-10 attempts until I can finally toggle and connect to a network. Until then, it just turns off. You can see the attempts on turning it on, but it fails for some reason.

On another note, does the Pixel Launcher work for somebody. I know we are early in the development. Just want to know whether it is only me. :)

I am pretty sure you did not, as you said that the device is asking for encryption password. That means the device is still encrypted. Format data, not wipe.
I suppose it would be helpful to mention in the OP instructions that the "format data" option will be followed by a choice of which filesystem to use, while wiping is more straightforward. It would avoid confusion between wiping and formatting.

Edit: I just checked OP again. The instructions say "format system data and cache". Could you please change that to "wipe system, data and cache" as it's also the term used by TWRP.

Ok so I have little (big) problem with alarm. Alarm is either ringing very quietly or not at all. Alarm starts ringing after unlocking screen with notifications about missed alarm. I didn't change anything power related in settings and only root apps/system modifications I have are magisk for root, busybox, adaway, card emulator and island. Phone have to be in deep sleep (probably) because I doesn't happen if I set alarm in middle of the day. I'm currently on december build. I'm gonna upgrade and somehow I will try to catch logs.

Update first then report if bug still happens with the latest build. December build is one month old and quite a lot changed since then.

Can somebody perhaps put up a mirror of the latest release? The quota on Google Drive is exceeded, unfortunately.

Edit: Ah, it's back.

Hello

I have tried to install the latest build but with no success. It boots to android but askes for encryption password. I put the default password ( accepted ) but reboot and do the same process again.

Any idea what is causing this to occur?
Tried dirty flash today and asked for password what I'd the default password

I have the same problem. Dirty flashed from the last december 2018 build, on boot it asks for encryption password - I used default_password. However the next message is that the data is corrupt and I should reset my phone. I did not want to do that, instead I installed the december build again which booted OK.
Anyone else with this problem? Could it be related to Magisk?

Things have changed. Go to TWRP and make a backup to an external drive and then FORMAT data.

In twrp mount system and type into terminal
Code:
 echo "ro.setupwizard.mode=DISABLED" >> /system/build.prop
This should disable initial setup after first boot.
I feel like this should be mentioned in the OP somewhere.

Made the switch from 15.1 to 16 (20190113) last night, above was the only annoyance really. That and the network traffic monitor is stuck in the centre of the status bar, even if the clock is also there (not a big deal, just thought it's worth a mention). Oh and the default Messaging app was triggering a notification continuously until I disabled its notifications and switched to Google's Messages app.

Everything's running great, battery life seems the same as 15.1 so far but don't think I've had the same issues others complain about with 15.1, could get through a day fine on there too. Thanks bgcngm :good:

    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.

    GPL compliance:
    Broken / not yet supported:
    • Something must be broken, right?

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



    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.

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