 * Your warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 10, 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.

The problem i faced on this ROM :

1)i can't open (setting-->display-->style and wallpaper) ... it showed "stop working"
2)it doesn't support quick charge and no sign or animation showed my phone is charging (before this im using evoX android 10 it works perfectly)
3)no option for screenshot in setting (i dont know if this is a new feature from android 11~)
4)the screenshot only support in potrait display not for landscape display
5)sometimes when i got a phone call.. its auto loud speaker (im annoyed bcs i must always turn it off manually)
6)not all apps support bubble chats

that is all for now..

otherwise everything is absolutely fine👍

Really awesome rom from the developer 😀 with no customisation. I installed with NikGapps full package. Everything works fine. Battery backup is good compared to other roms. Gameplay also nice. I removed the camera and installed Gcam. 4K video recording can be done. Nice rom. Thanks again dev for your great work. Love you guys for giving life to whyred and it's users.
