I've been struggling with bootloops and infinite boot animation trying to install this ROM, flashing different TWRPs and kernels, but finally managed to run it.

1. Prepare MicroSD with all the files needed for LOS 15.1 and RECOVERY_RAMDIS.img pulled from any stock ROM's update.zip
2. Run Huawei Recovery and let it install stock EMUI ROM
3. Boot stock ROM, pass the first configuration
4. Restart into bootloader;
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrp-3.4.0.0-v1-hi6250-emui8.img
5. Boot into TWRP;
adb pull /vendor/etc/fstab.hi6250
cut out encryption line from it
adb push fstab.hi6250 /vendor/etc/
6. Boot into bootloader;
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk RECOVERY_RAMDIS.img
7. Reboot into Huawei's recovery and do factory reset and wipe cache
8. Reboot into fastboot;
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrp-3.4.0.0-v1-hi6250-emui8.img
9. Reboot into TWRP;
install LOS 15.1 .zip and Gapps
10. Reboot to system

I hope that anyone struggling with install will make it following this procedure.
I guess after installing other ROMs before, something stubborn persisted in memory and didn't wanted to let go untill stock EMUI ROM reinstall.

Going to test the ROM now. I find Android 10's too buggy atm. Thank you for your work DarkJoker360.







Edit: One bug I find - headphones not detected. 4-pin PC headset works fine, but 3-pin earphones or 3-pin AUX cable aren't detected. I used "Lesser AudioSwitch" to workaround that issue. Please fix if you could :)


I have infinity bootloop please can you help me ?

i nedd this file that you write

"6. Boot into bootloader;
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk RECOVERY_RAMDIS.img"

Where i can find it ?

Hi folks! I just installed LineageOS 15.1 in my Huawei P8 Lite 2017.
I'm using a SD card and activate adaptive storage.
After activate and format SD for adaptative, when finishing it showed a Java error in screen, but message dissapear in few second so I can't post that message. But I think adaptative storage it's working properly.

Now I will put google account and some apps.

Thanks @DarkJoker360 for your job. I choose 15.1 as someone told me in other thread this is last rom to support adaptative storage, also this devide is not for me, it's for grandma and she only needs few apps (mainly whatsapp, and few more), so better to use staaaaable rom (actually she is using moto x with android 4.4).

Dears,

I do need some guidance for installing this rom (fyi, I've tried the following roms too, none of them worked : lineage-16.0-20210109-UNOFFICIAL-prague & lineage-17.1-20200309-DarkJoker360-prague).

First of all is not clear for me which TWRP I should use. There are so many mentioned and some many dead links.
The last one I've tried was twrp-3.6.1_9-0-prague.img from https://eu.dl.twrp.me/prague/

As far as I can tell the TWRP installs just fine (I cna use it)... after which :
1. I copy the rom zip fir to the sdcard
2. I wipe data, cache, system, dalvik
3. I try to install the "lineage-15.1-20190718-UNOFFICIAL-prague.zip"
At this point I get some errors saying "Updater process ended with ERROR: 7"

What am I doing wrong ?
Can somebody point me to complete install instruction list (that hopefully also mentions versions of twrp that is to be used...)

With both twrp's the result is the same.

Here is how I've installed the twrp's (one at a time of course then a lineage install) :

sudo ./fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk /data/misc/download/lineage/twrp_p8_lite_3.2.1-0_oreo.img
[sudo] password for thomas:
Sending 'recovery_ramdisk' (24778 KB) OKAY [ 0.856s]
Writing 'recovery_ramdisk' OKAY [ 0.610s]
Finished. Total time: 1.484s

sudo ./fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk /data/misc/download/lineage/TWRP-Askuccio.img
Sending 'recovery_ramdisk' (10816 KB) OKAY [ 0.354s]
Writing 'recovery_ramdisk' OKAY [ 0.270s]
Finished. Total time: 0.642s

After each twrp install I wiped the data/system/cache/dalvik then I've tried the lineage-15.1-20190718-UNOFFICIAL-prague.zip install. I got the same error :
E1001: Failed to update system image.
Updater process ended with error: 7

I forgot to mention before (but I suspect it's obvious based on the title of this thread) I have a Huawei P8Lite 2017 (PRA-LX1)

    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.
