LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.​
Code:

 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please

 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.

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.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review. Your changelog is whatever was merged into gerrit.

Amazing job!

I've flashed the latest version and tested it today. Runs really really smooth. Amazing job! :good:

There is a problem with the internal mic(s). It works only for sim calls. I tried recording a video and also I did a video call but there was no audio recording from the mic(s). But instead I connected a headset, and the mic audio from the headset worked.

I'll still use this rom as my daily driver, I just can't stand MIUI!

Looking forward for future updates

For me it works, but sometimes it doesn't. I relock the phone and then it works again. Weird :confused:

Maybe pocket mode doesn't work well with fpc fingerprint sensor. My device uses goodix so I blindly implemented for fpc.
When screen is black and proximity sensor is covered, fingerprint sensor will stop work, this is expected behavior. Can be disabled in Settings->Additional buttons. goodix works as expected but idk how it works with fpc.

It is possible to use stock camera with portrait mode. Google camera don't work properly

Hey there, I flashed this https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=74893764&postcount=1431 and it works, kinda. I mean the portrait mode works , but right after you take the photo, the app crashes but the photo is still saved.

Update: I flashed the latest version (05/02) and the mic works. I also deactivated "Prevent accidental wake-up" and the fingerprint works all the time, and also the battery life seems to have improved, or it might be just me :D

Amazing job. Thanks a ton @dianlujitao !

    Does "secure boot" means "encryption phone " ?
    after encryptted phone, everytime bootup the system or goto RECOVERY, need input password, and after encryptted phone, the wifi broken.

    If password is required on boot it means secure boot is on. Encryption is another thing.
    Anyway, fixed wifi in this case just now, a new build will be released shortly.

    when do you add Safetynet pass?

    Great ROM!
    Everything works good and smooth but cts profiles is false, can you solve it? It needs to use pay, netflix, etc..
    Thank you for your hard work

    Anyone knows how to install and run Netflix? Safetynet pass is useful in this case and other things like paying in the supermarket....

    Also, I don´t use fast charge because I think that the battery will decrease their capacity faster than with an stardard chargue, and at night I have time enough :D But when I driving on my car in a very small trip about 30-45minutes, I want to use fast chargue. Does anyone have problems with this feature with the lastest version (march 18th) ?

    note: the dates of the changuelog are all "2017" :p

    Hi Guys, flash this magisk module to fix it
