Thanks. @Liquid5n0w Actually I just flashed liquidremix this morning after being frustrated by constant crash of los16. At least I see status bar and no crash for now.
Forgive newbie here, are you saying liquidremix is better than havoc? In which sense? I saw some users ditched havoc and went to liquidremix.

That would probably be a discussion for another thread. Maybe this one...

Hello there. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Maybe new build today, idk.

Hello OrdenKrieger,
nice to hear from you and this would be really really awesome if there will be an update. Take your time, from my side it never mind if it comes today or next week or so. Many thanks for your efforts :cowboy::victory:

Is there any information about whether this rom will be official? :)

Without proper Dev support it will never be official. As more time passes and device getting old, interest for developing for this device decreases (Devs also upgrade to newer devices). I think only option now is to switch to GSI as I did, and using LOS vendor. Unjustified Dev seems to keep pushing unof builds for LOS 15.1 thus even updating Vendor. I'm currently using AEX 9.0 GSI (Feb security patch) with latest LOS 15.1 vendor, and everything working smooth and fast ;)

THanks for sharing your setup. I will follow and see how it works for me. I have been trying roms and am still on RR 6 because its so stable, but some notifications dont come through and i want to update to pie. Ill give this a shot, since pie seems to be coming to our phone except with liquid remix which is ok but i still had problems.

Installed and works perfect.
After first video I got a FC, but second/third worked without problems.
BT and audio works also.
Many thanks for your hard work, Ordenkrieger!!

    About Lineage OS:

    Lin·e·age
    /ˈlinēij/
    noun
    lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or pedigree.
    a sequence of species each of which is considered to have evolved from its predecessor.


    Disclaimer:
    LineageOS (Lineage Android Distribution) members or anyone else on this website is not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in the products you find here before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.


    Warning:
    This ROM will not work on devices that have not installed the O bootloader and appropriate modem package below. Also does any build from now on require a vendor partition, by doing this you will lose the ability to flash official builds provided by ZTE. Any failure in this process of flashing or repartitioning could lead to an unrecoverable bricked device.

    What's not working:
    SELinux is permissive

    Instructions:
    Attention! The bootloader needs to be unlocked!
    Attention! You'll need a vendor partition!
    1. Install the Universal bootloader and your model specific modem. Download
    2. Flash vendor creation tool. Download (unnecessary, if done already)
    * On first flash the device will reboot, just reboot to recovery and reflash the zip.
    3. Update your version of TWRP. Download
    4. Perform a backup of your current ROM. (optional)
    5. Wipe system,data and cache (optional) [Needed if coming from another rom!; always good to avoid bugs]
    6. Install the ROM. Download
    7. Install GApps. (optional) [Recommended -> Open GApps (arm64) (9.0)]
    8. Reboot.

    What is CAF?
    Code Aurora, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, hosts tested open source software code needed to provide upstream enablement for innovative, performance optimized, network connectivity and related ecosystems to support system on a chip (SoC) products. It also serves as a staging area for open source code that is submitted to various upstream projects such as the Linux kernel and Android. CAF also mirrors key upstream projects for use by the community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, didn't notes that LineageOS pushed the new CAF display,media and audio HALs to github. Since our display/media blobs are still based on an Oreo CAF tag, these cause issues with newer P CAF HALs. Next build scheduled for today.
