This is a rom designed for Huawei P8 Lite 2017 but it can be install on other huawei hi6250 devices that have emui 8. Try at your risk as I can' t support over devices.

Bug reporting without logs will be IGNORED !

I'll try this out. Pie ROMs seem to be more battery hungry so I'll probably stick with Oreo for the meantime.

Cannot agree, i have on AOSPE 6.1 the same battery life as on stock oreo b394 on PRA-LX1c432. :angel:
Your phone does not have NFC, so maybe that is the point why your battery does not lasts as long as on this rom. :cool:

Why this isn't on the official Lineage website when it's stable?

Because we use patches in Lineage sources for having everything stable and Lineage' s rules are to build with thier bot without patching anything, just:

* Sync rom source code
* Clone prague code
* Build the rom

I know it is like the thing. If it isn' t correct someone please correct me :)

For OTA I will learm something about, maybe I will be able to implement an own ota server

Also, it's worth mentioning that the official supported Lineage builds are all Snapdragon based devices, and this is a Kirin device, therefore it will never be official

No, I don' t think they supports only SanpDragon. Actually I saw that LuK from Honor V10 is trying to support officially it. I hope for him :)

Please forgive my basic question: is it possible, after having installed this ROM, to install again EMUI 5 or EMUI 7 ? And, if it's possible, how to proceed ?

Thanks for your prompt reply but...I anticipated that I was posing a very basic question. Provided that for a typo I wrote EMUI 7 instead of EMUI 8 does your answer mean "No, you can't roll back to EMUI 5 nor EMUI 8" or "Yes, you can roll back" ? In the latter case any short hint/suggestion about how to proceed ?

    February build - status update for my findings on this ROM

    Here is my update with latest ROM from February (see post #290).

    Issue #1: uSD card formated as internal storage doesn't come up (mount) early enough, causing issues with missing storage
    UPDATE with new ROM build: no change with the new ROM. Since the SD card is formatted as internal storage, it is encrypted as base Android security requirement.
    I am not an Android specialist but I think the SD card (or at least part of it) is encrypted with a key that belongs to the user. I suspect that only when the user "logs on" (i.e. first unlocks the phone after power-on or reboot), will the key be made available, which is done in // with the initialization of the user session.
    Therefore, many applications set as "autostart" will not be available, or have (part of) their resources / user data unavailable, until the "mount with decryption" part of the uSD card bringup has been completed.
    So if my theory holds true, unless a significant change is made to LineageOS sources, I suspect nothing can be done.
    I guess I will simply wait for uSD card to mount after a (re)boot + unlock, and deal with a few FCs in the meantime.​

    Issue #2: Second SIM card PIN code request at boot gets killed and has to be triggered again manually
    UPDATE with new ROM build: I got frustrated with this issue in previous ROM build, I just deactivated both SIM card PIN codes. I don't know if the issue has persisted or not in the latest ROM build.​

    Issue #3: Fingerprint enrollment very difficult compared to EMUI8 (but once enrolled works flawlessly)
    UPDATE with new ROM build: I haven't had to enroll new fingerprints, so I don't know. See issue #6 below.​

    Issue #3.1: Surprising finding of '=' character when unlocking via fingerprint
    UPDATE with new ROM build: this strange behavior seems to have disappeared, nice! I haven't done anything on my side that would have solved the issue so I guess this is solved by the new ROM build itself.​

    Issue #4: No sound when playing music in default music player nor Musicolet (from Play Store)
    UPDATE with new ROM build: not tried yet. Will provide update next time I try listening to music, if anybody interested.​

    Issue #5: Local SIM card seems to be detected as foreign SIM card
    UPDATE with new ROM build: issue remains, but it is hard to characterize. Note that the issue didn't happen in EMUI8, it is something I have only had with this ROM (January build and February build).
    I have 2 SIM cards: LEBARA France and LycaMobile Switzerland.
    When I am in Switzerland, LEBARA SIM detected as roaming (OK) and LycaMobile SIM detected as roaming (NOT OK)
    When I am in France, LEBARA SIM detected as not roaming (OK) and LycaMobile SIM detected as roaming (OK)
    So there is something special about the LycaMobile Switzerland SIM/operator which LineageOS can't interpret correctly (EMUI8 did flawlessly).​

    Issue #6: NEWLY REPORTED - old EMUI8 fingerprints still able to unlock the phone and impossible to delete!
    Description: an issue found in January build already, still present with February build, is that the previously registered fingerprints (in EMUI8) still work. I have tried everything I could, including deleting fingerprint database files under /data/system/user/* (don't do that! I lost all content of SD card due to issue 1 behavior of storing per-user decryption key). Those fingerprints are not visible in the fingerprint enrollment UI, but they can successfully be used for unlocking the phone...
    Consequence: don't leave your phone locked near your ex-girlfriend if she had access to your phone previously (fingerprint enrolled) even if you have tried wiping the fingerprints, hoping that by starting over again with a different ROM and a full wipe they would disappear...​

    Issue #7: NEW - OpenGApps version
    Description: In a previous post, I explained how I had to follow an advice to flash old OpenGApps 20190913 as the recent .zip didn't detect the architecture (arm vs arm64 vs x86 & Android version) correctly. Well, that didn't work with February build and here is how I got it working (surely not the most straightforward way): when I got the notification about new February build for this ROM:
    -I installed (via menu, it rebooted in TWRP etc).
    -After reboot, phone was completely unusable (bootloop) and rebooted into Huawei's recovery (TWRP was killed by update) and asked me to Factory reset the phone, argh.
    -I flashed Askuccio's TWRP again and wiped Cache / Dalvik Cache, no better
    -I flashed OpenGApps 20190913, phone booted but was unable to start completely (no bootloop)
    -Rebooted in TWRP, wiped Cache & Dalvik Cache, flashed OpenGApps 20200215, wiped Cache & Dalvik Cache again - note that this time, recent OpenGApps installer worked, no wrong detection, which is good news!
    -Phone booted okay with lots of FC in Google Apps, but still it booted. Play Store not starting. All non-Google apps were working, but lots of FC notifications from Google Apps. In particular, Youtube and Gmail kept crashing every few seconds
    -Removed Youtube and Gmail via Settings -> Applications, less FCs, Play Store still not working, sideloaded Gmail from APKMirror, Gmail & Play Store working again
    -Had to wait a few days for Play Store updating Youtube for Youtube to work again.

    Consequence: Phone difficult to use, probably due to OpenGApps versions of some apps > previously installed updates​

    Since I got no answer or comment on my previous posts, I am not sure if in the future I will post such status information. I am not complaining, and not taking offense, but since it takes some time to write this, I may continue to do that as a service to the community (my contribution), only if it is considered useful.

    Hi. I have a problem using your rom on PRA-LX1. Sometimes my SIM goes off and canot goes on. I have to restart phone to get SIM working again.
    Take a look at attachements. One is screenshot when it happend, second is log from network monitor app.
    Is there any simply solution to solve this problem?

    I had this when I was using dual-SIM, with PIN code on both SIM: sometimes, even after booting and logging successfully, one SIM card "disappeared" apparently without reason. Since I removed PIN code on both SIM (reducing security in case something steals my phone), both SIM cards seem to work flawlessly.
