LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11 (R), 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.

Broken / not yet supported:
  • Nothing (?)

Working:
  • Camera (and flashlight)
  • WiFi
  • NFC
  • Bluetooth
  • Telephony (Calls and Data), including VoLTE
  • Audio (Record and Playback)
  • Video Playback
  • Sensors
  • GPS
  • HW crypto (FDE)

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 V10.2.2.0.OAAMIXM global stable 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] 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 V10.2.2.0.OAAMIXM global stable, 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. 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!​

Twrp is gone after flashing this rom. I've had a few restarts while connected to the wifi, especially when connected to wifi but no internet. Other than these everything seems fine.
Thanks you so much for supporting the mi5 community.

Yes, but will be fixed in today's upcoming build.
Quite impressive for being early builds!
I really love the visual and usability enhancements ;)
Also I can confirm GPS has a very quick lock.

The only deal-breaker for using this as a daily driver is that background apps, like Instagram and Whatsapp, keep draining the battery.
From 100% to 39% with 5 min of screen on + 2 hours of background activity.
I'm sure doze and the battery optimizations will be refined asap, just reporting here for other testers to know.

    Hi.
    Is there any further support for Xiaomi Mi5?
    I saw in official LineageOS website, that there is still new updates.
    for example I saw lineage-18.1-20210905-nightly-gemini-signed.zip rom, the release date is 2021-09-05. But I don't know what is the change log for this new release. I don't know whether they solve the bugs or not.
    I red on this topic a few user encounter some bugs. have their problems solved yet or not?
    Finally, is there any other Custom ROM for Mi5 that is better than Lineageos?
    https://download.lineageos.org/gemini/changes/
    it's not enough ?

    you can check this if you want to declare or follow an issue : https://gitlab.com/LineageOS/issues/android/-/issues?scope=all&state=all&label_name[]=device:gemini
