Is there any APP or xposed mod which can add a function of searching call log for the LOS default dialer(com.android.dialer)?

hi, thanks for the ROM, I came from AEX that was starting to get real laggy hence I have decided to take a leap of faith after seeing so many positive reviews in here.

I did a clean install and everything went well, so I am sharing what I have done here:

  1. using the Official TWRP App, downloaded and flashed the twrp-3.5.2_9-0-gemini.img recovery
  2. set up adb and fastboot on my PC according to this guide https://wiki.lineageos.org/adb_fastboot_guide
  3. downloaded the following packages:
  4. reboot phone into recovery
  5. wiped the phone, and then sideloaded the packages using adb according to the instructions in "Installing LineageOS from recovery" section of the wiki (https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/gemini/install)
    Sideload sequence:
    1. official mi5 firmware
    2. lineage OS package
    3. MindTheGapps package
  6. adb reboot

I did a factory reset immediately in anticipation of this problem https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...eeklies-for-xiaomi-mi-5.4170027/post-85152423

I did not know whether I needed to do that but I've done it anyway since it's a clean install.

There's a small glitch I've encountered during the first-time setup wizard - after setting the PIN and fingerprint, if you choose to skip the voice activation part for Google assistant it will just loop back to the PIN setup step, until you choose YES and set up the voice activation.

Otherwise the ROM has been working fine for me so far.

tell me the creators of this firmware, how to turn on Volte? constantly writes "server error" "failure" and everything in this plan. when I turn off Volte in the settings, the calls work fine. I also tried the PE, Aex firmware and Volte worked fine there. But I like your ROM, and I'm uncomfortable without Volte(((

Everything works but the problem is it starts lagging after couple of day. I have disabled all battery optimization yet app freezes and gets super annoying to operate. I would argue performance is more important than battery optimization

I went from 17.1 to 18.1 without losing data and apps. But: I don't have Magisk.

Here is what I did

I upgraded from 17.1 to 18.1 without lose data and app. But now I have two problems:
- Vanced YouTube after reboot disappear. I have installed new version of magisk.

- the Bluetooth speaker doesn't work anymore. I made the association, spotify sees it but no audio is transmitted. Are there any problems with Bluetooth? The speaker is old, a rokono b10.

Thank you

I did have an issue with my old Bose Sound Link mini II: It did play the music but I couldn't adjust volume. I did a factory reset of the speaker and made new Bluetooth coupling. Now it's good.

I solved the problem with Bluetooth and also with YouTube vanced. Now when I restart the phone, YouTube Vanced doesn't disappear. I'm happy for this! :)

Now I am trying to use VOLTE with my operator HO MOBILE (Italy). I have two sim in my MI5. I tried to swap the sim, I saw the VOLTE item in the settings and it was active. Then I restarted the phone and now the VOLTE item is no longer in the settings of Sim 1 but only in Sim 2. I swapped the sim again, I had the VOLTE item again for a while but after the restart it disappeared again. . How come?
I called customer service and tell me that it is a xiaomi problem, that I have to go to the engineering menu and create a new apn with name, apn and type apn IMS but I can't enter the engineering menu. Has anyone managed to get the VOLTE to work with this rom? Thank you!

    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.

    GPL compliance:
    yG18r6g.png

    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!​
