Thank you very much!

Anyway I could not install this last build, it remains in boot loading animation of LineageOS and it does not advance, I waited for an hour and the process is not completed.

I know that it is not my error since I tried to install the previous version and it does it correctly.

I hope you can check this.

Thank you again.

Hey , i updated with bootfix , can you give it a try , thanks

Hey , i updated with bootfix , can you give it a try , thanks

It didn't work, the screen keeps blinking :crying:

EDIT 1: Giving another try, wait.
EDIT 2: I didn't apply the fix correctly in the first attempt, in the second attempt I applied it correctly and sadly the same problem that occurs without the fix is repeated.

Hey all,
First of all I thank sunnyraj for developing such an awesome ROM for this phone. Even though it's unofficial, it meets the standard of many official ROMs.
I spent a lot of time on this ROM but I wanted an oreo based custom ROM. So I flashed sunnyraj's official Pixel Experience ROM for Redmi 5A and used for about a month.
But then, I decided to come back to Lineage OS 14.1 to try its updated (latest) build. But after flashing the 15/05/2018 build, I saw two major problems which I didn't see when I was using this ROM previously i.e. the 04/04/2018 build.
I could see two new apps in the app drawer which were not there in the previous build. They are "Voice Search" and "Google Now". I had flashed gapps STOCK package in both the cases.
Why is the Google Now icon appearing? The default launcher icon shouldn't appear in the apps drawer, right? See screenshots for reference...

2. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Pgb6QoJgXLPWdDyYgKA9fKT7GD-inoWe/view?usp=drivesdk

Other than this there are no issues which seem to bother me. This is my all time favorite ROM! :cool:
Please tell me if others have seen these two apps...
And if possible can I get your reply @sunnyraj84348?

Thanks :)
*Anyone who has seen these two apps?*

The developer updated yesterday to a new build but it was canceled due to a problem in the boot of the operating system. This canceled update included several updates.

Currently the last stable build is lineage-14.1-20180515-UNOFFICIAL-riva.zip in which the DT2W (Double tap to wake) does not work.

If we only got the fix for the dt2w (not including the changes that damaged the boot) it would be fantastic.

I also noticed that in the current build it is installed through something called "Multirom" and in the canceled update that did not appear in the TWRP installation log, maybe this is the reason why the boot in the canceled update did not work ?

Thanks a lot bruh for the quickest reply ever!
Now I know. I downloaded this ROM today afternoon cuz I had to come back from Pixel Experience ROM. So, that's why I'm unaware of the update's arrival and cancellation which happened yesterday. I had used this ROM when it was just released i.e. the 4/04/2018 build.
One more help...
Can you please answer my previous query if you are aware of it?
It's about appearance of two strange (not actually) apps - "Voice Search" (which is some Google's quick search app on clicking app info) and "Google Now Launcher" (which generally shouldn't appear as per my belief, that, default launchers don't have their app icons in the apps drawer) in the apps drawer after flashing the latest build and stock gapps package. See the screenshots if necessary?!
Those app didn't appear in the first build on flashing stock gapps package.
I am quite bothered right now!

Also let me know what gapps package you chose!
Thanks man! :D

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.

Code:
I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed (like it did for me...). 
 * 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 me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. 
 * Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.
 * Same statement for XDA.

    Are there any bugs?
    In the latest version (lineage-14.1-20180515-UNOFFICIAL-riva) the Double tap to wake does not work.
    In the previous version (lineage-14.1-20180404-UNOFFICIAL-riva) I had problems with the functioning of the Wi-Fi in some moments and some battery drain but I think it is because it is a previous build.

    How is battery life?
    In the use that I give the battery has a good duration. I had a "battery drain" problem with "Lineage OS Services" in the version lineage-14.1-20180404-UNOFFICIAL-riva but I think it is because it is a previous build too.

    It is a shame that the most stable and complete rom for this device is abandoned without updates. It includes the IR Blaster thing that no other rom in Oreo can say at the moment.

    Lineage OS 14.1 for Redmi 5A is the rom for most downloads by far in the developer's hosting and is still ignored :crying:
