LineageOS 18.1 is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, 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. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

We have progressed to LineageOS 18.1

Flash instructions :

Use latest pbr recovery for miatol, supports decryption - beta available here, https://pitchblackrecovery.com/joyeuse/.

DO NOT - Wipe data!, ONLY FORMAT, otherwise you may hose the phone.

There is a way to fix this without the fastboot factory clean, flash and lock with the official Xiaomi tool, which was forcing you to clean and lock... now available here: https://github.com/Szaki/XiaomiADBFastbootTools
If you hose the phone, use this tool - you need to install JRE though, as the tool is Java base. Put your phone is fastboot, use the tool to download the latest global rom (or whichever). Then go to where its downloaded, extract the .xy/tar file, then go back into the tool and under "image" select the folder INSIDE the folder you just extracted, then select "clean install" and install it. This will flash the majority of imgs but will error out at the end and be unable to create the "user data" partition.

That's okay, because all of the partitions will be setup again, and you can flash any rom you want again. So when its done, and still in fastboot, fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (recovery.img being the latest joyeuse pbr recovery, you renamed to recovery.img and were in that folder in the command prompt, so it will flash that recovery) or use the tool to select that recovery and it will flash it for you and reboot into for you if you like.

(Do this step last, after Magisk, if you want to unencrypt, no worries if you don't unencrypt - PBR recovery will decrypt your data ON THE SECOND TRY OF ENTERING YOUR SCREENLOCK PIN NUMBER...), the new PBR Miatol Beta 10/14/20, fixes this issue, it is now decrypted on the first entry of the phone's lockscreen PIN. Then flash disable_dm-verity_forceencrypt.zip available here for those who want decrypted data partition: https://zackptg5.com/android.php#disverfe and other places as well.

If you are encrypted and decide to unencrypt later, you will need to flash the disable_dm-verity_forceencrypt.zip in miatol recovery, then format data. Store roms, gapps, recoveries (just in case), disable_dm-verity, magisk install and uninstall and all that stuff on the SD card, so you can use them in PBR after you format DATA (the first step after installing PBR miatol recovery), just FYI. Then do the following:

Flash ROM
Flash OpenGAPPS for android 11 nano
Boot into android, make sure its working and install Magisk Manager 8.0.7, then reboot into recovery and install Magisk 21.4 (in recovery, I did not need to extract the boot.img and patch in Magisk Manager, and reboot into recovery to flash the patched boot.img, but your results may be different): https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases. If you want to unencrypt (no guarantees its permanent though) you need to format data, THEN FLASH MAGISK, then flash disable_dm-verity (always the last step)- I usually wipe dalvik and cache too.

USE LATEST MIATOL PBR RECOVERY, PLEASE.

SD card issues resolved with the implementation of the EXFat android driver.

Flash it and using it by now, so far so good, sometimes it gets a little freeze but nothing serious, miracast reboots phone so dunno if this is a bug or not, proximity sensor is another one cuz while I was in speaking with my pal screen was on all the time and my ear activated bluetooth and DND :D

Have nothing to talk about VoLTE cuz in my country is not available.

ANX modules left my phone in bootloop so instead I went for GCam. Flash unofficial opengapps nano and make sure to use Wi-Fi to complete the first run.

Magisk canary works so it can be rooted.

Keep the hard work!

*Sorry if I made some writing mistakes, english is not my native language. Cheers!!

Newer Build:
https://mega.nz/file/PlkgiSzS#C_tIspgbtGDrweztQ83lADHyEQf4dTkIUiSAqgjVAFk
NOTE: You should be on 11.0.7.0 QJZMIXM (EU) Global firmware for this build. Also, I have a newer build, but its not ready for primetime and has issues with SMS and Call Log enabling permissions.
Oh, and BTW, if you hose your ROM/Phone, just flash vbmeta.img in fastboot to avoid using the factory fastboot img flash, otherwise you many need to wait another 7 days to unlock the bootloader.
...
The dev for this build is: @wight554, all thanks and credit go to him, he is awesome, and I, for one, seriously appreciate this ROM as it works very well for me. It is so snappy and smooth, with a super fast boot time, no reboots and generally pretty frickin AWESOME!
...

First of all, thank you guys @gigahurts & @wight554 very much for working on supporting this device :good::good:
Could you pretty please confirm that you intend to continue working on this and maintain this device? I am planning to buy two joyeuse devices for daily usage and I would like to be at least partially sure I can run LineageOS on them. Also do you think the current known issues will be possible to resolve in the near-ish future? :fingers-crossed: Thanks for your reply in advance. All the best.

hey Swiftor,

We will continue to work on this rom. LineageOS has been around a long time, development has spread across so many devices, however, the hardware of many devices is very similar, so support will continue. The last Redmi Note 8 pro, had a mediatek SOC, and made development difficult until MIUI decided to release its source. The snapdragon platform is very mature and is more easily and readily available to develop roms for. Redmi Note 10 pro has been released in India, and has a slightly better processor 765g vs 730g, but the kernel and hardware are very similar, so I development for this phone and the Note 10 pro should parallel and continue. We are working on submitting an official 18.0 release, but have to have all hardware (and software) fully functional and as close to zero bugs as possible. I predict development to continue as long as Xiaomi continues to release new MIUI roms for this device (and they continue to release roms for phones much, much older than this).

I have updated the first post with a newer release. Let me know if you have any issues and I will try to help.

Thanks for the props too:)

    Hey all,

    New unified rom will be released today. We're moving away from individual phone releases. All Lineage 18 roms from this point on will be miatol. Will post 15/12/20 rom later today. Been out a while sorry. Only 1 rom release since the Oct rom anyway. All issues have been resolved and the latest Lineage 18.0 code synced.

    Hey all,

    Apologies for not responding for a bit. I got diagnosed with stage 4 cancer on Jan. 1, so this was not on my priority list.

    Anyway, enough with the sob story. Development continues and has moved to Lineage 18.1 and has been taken over by 2 new developers:

    Hi @gigahurts

    I hope your recovery is going well!

    I spent the day yesterday investigating my comment:

    This ROM is good, but unfortunately the MIC is muted during calls regardless of mute button toggle.

    I found the same exact problem in various other roms.

    Before clean-flashing those roms I installed the most recent firmware
    ( fw_joyeuse_miui_JOYEUSEEEAGlobal_V12.0.2.0.QJZEUXM_53af718a4c_10.0.zip )

    Only the stock ROM and once "aftermarket" ROM [Fluid 1.2 (20210219) ] so far does not have the silent mic problem (so, together with having used a sound recorder app, I know the hardware is still good . . .)

    I have tested MANY others and they all have one or both of the two LineageOS 18/18.1 problems (no mic on calls or no ear speaker on non-speakerphone calls). Additionally, most of these will immediately drop calls made with an area code except the first call immediately after reboot.
    • lineage-18.0-20201130-UNOFFICIAL-miatoll.zip -- no EAR speaker on calls
    • lineage-18.1-20210113-UNOFFICIAL-miatoll.zip -- no MIC on calls
    • dotOS-R-v5.0.0-miatoll-OFFICIAL-20210208-1526.zip -- no EAR speaker on calls
    • RevengeOS-4.0-R-OFFICIAL-miatoll-20210120-0248.zip -- no MIC on calls
    • Xtended-XR-v5.0-miatoll-OFFICIAL-20210209.zip -- no EAR speaker on calls
    • Arrow-v11.0-miatoll-OFFICIAL-20210305-VANILLA.zip -- no MIC on calls
    • descendant_miatoll-XI-20210218-Official.zip -- Does not flash
    EDIT (additions) 5:55 pm 2021-02-28
    • CARBON-CR-9.0-Q-WEEKLY-lineage_miatoll-20210209-2312.zipPixelPlusUI_3.2_miatoll-11.0-20210228-0358-OFFICIAL.zip
    • crDroidAndroid-11.0-20210210-miatoll-v7.3.zip -- no EAR speaker on calls
    Note: crDroidAndroid 7.3 is unbelievably good! (in spite of "alpha" status) There are so many configuration options. They are so well organized! And it's still as fast as LOS. The moment the ear-speaker in call issue is addressed, this will no doubt be my daily driver.

    EDIT (recategorization) 5:57 pm 2021-03-05
    • I had previously listed Arrow as working - that was from a table with a messy marking, sorry (I rechecked the ROM today to make sure and also confirmed with my posts in another forum . . .)
    EDIT (additional ROM attempt) 11:52 am 2021-03-06
    • SpiceOS-2.2-NEW_ERA-20210101-miatoll-OFFICIAL.zip -- no EAR speaker on calls

      I hesitated to install this earlier as it already seems abandoned (no updates since 2021-01-01 even though there have been 3 security patches for AOSP since then). Visually this is the nicest of the above ROMs in my opinion. Elegant default background. Fun bootanimation.

      Hurrah! This ROM has working ear speaker and microphone (but only after first switching on speakerphone).

      Unfortunately, calls with area code immediately fail after dialing them. This is another consistent problem on A11 miatoll ROMs. Dealbreaker until fixed.
    EDIT (additional ROM attempt; clarification of calls dialed with area code) 6:15 pm 2021-03-06
    • PixelPlusUI_3.2_miatoll-11.0-20210228-0358-OFFICIAL.zip -- no EAR speaker on calls
    END EDIT

    I hope this fairly exhaustive test will help the developers of the miatoll LOS 18.x rom get it solved in the next version.

    Meanwhile, if any reader already has this problem solved . . . any advice would be appreciated!
