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.

Instructions :
  • Grab the latest build, gapps, recommended recovery and firmware (if you're on a lower than recommended firmware)
  • Flash recovery via fastboot.
  • Reboot to recovery.
  • Format Data Partition.
  • Flash the latest build, gapps (if you wish)
  • Reboot

Downloads :

Reporting Bugs :
  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel , Magisk or any other addons.
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops and /sys/fs/pstore/dmesg-ramoops-0. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log
Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

- LineageOS Version

Hi. A little help?

Your asserted firmware version for India is V12. But the latest available firmware for India on Xiaomi firmware updater is V11.

And it's the opposite for China. V12 is available but only V11 is required.

Can this ROM just not be flashed on Indian devices yet?

Ah. Never mind. This is the fault of this FAQ question answer in the Xiaomi Firmware Updater thread:

"How to update the firmware?
1- Download the package you want to flash. IT MUST BE NAMED WITH THE SAME CODENAME OF YOUR DEVICE."

This is NOT the case. You can flash the China firmware on Indian devices and flash LOS on top. It works. I don't know why the FAQ says what it does.
@yshalsager, can you clarify this point?

Well, this was written before Xiaomi decided to do (almost) same devices with different codenames. The warning was there because some people may try to cross flash firmware of other devices. However, in devices like violet it's fine since china and global are the same codename (violet, violet_in_global), unlike Redmi Note 8 Pro (begonia, begoniain_in_global).

I have a Mi 5 and it was common knowledge since the beginning that you could flash whichever firmware you wanted to on it. So looking at your thread I thought that Xiaomi changed something in its newer devices, mandating the use of that region's firmware. Glad to know that's not the case. Thanks!

Thank you for this build. I bought this phone specifically for Lineage OS, and was rather disappointed when the phone was no longer supported.

This works great.

Thank you

    Hi, just installed the build and it's been working great so far! But some issues where the OTG doesn't work. I think it's a kernel problem. And if I want to change kernel, how do I do it?
    Edit : solved it, thanks @merothh
