LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7 (Nougat), 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. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.

This ROM is working fine but overheating the phone. Not sure if I'm the only one facing this issue.

Never had heating issues with LineageOS 13.

PS: Thank you very much for your effort to make custom ROM for Redmi 4a. :)

Fresnillo, Zac.
It seems that there is a bug in apps that use compass, it always marks the opposite direction to the one you really point to.
By the way, this rom is truly amazing, congratulations and thank you for your hard work!

Great and hatsoff to you! :D
Hotspot is the only major bug?
I'm currently on your 6.0.1 LOS rom..
Should we all wait for the official N update from Xiaomi for you to build a stable LOS 14.1?

Pretty sure the 4A won't receive official Nougat.

At the very least we just have to endure an eternal wait for the kernel sources

Redmi 3 (ido) never leaves Lollipop for their official MIUI releases and yet with [official] kernel source already available it's getting mad support for loads of Nougat (Oreo already even) ROMs.

Both kernel source release and a Nougat base upgrade is less likely, but Nougat base upgrade is even less likely than an actual, official kernel source release. It's just a Xiaomi's thing to take an eternity to release the source, I heard it takes a minimum of one year since the device launch to release. Nice one Xiaomi.

PS: MIUI ROMs rarely gets an Android base upgrade. If it does though, nothing much has changed as long as it's still a MIUI (e.g. MIUI9 with Lollipop, Marshmallow, and Nougat basically have the same MIUI features).
