About: Lineage OS is a free custom Android firmware developed originally by LineageOS Dev team. However, the one available here is cooked by third-party developer namely Vasishath on XDA. That’s why this build is not an official build, but it is still based on AOSP and the official LineageOS source code. You, as a user, may expect an increased performance compared to using stock ROM shipped with your device which in this case is MIUI. AOSP-based ROM, like this one, is not equipped with many additional third-party extensions, apps, and so on. Hence, you may expect a lag-free performance.
The developer said almost all features of the phone works flawlessly including boots, Volte, fingerprint sensor, camera, audio, video, flash, LED, GPS, and so on.
Grab the zip file from one of the links below. Please note that there is no Google Apps built in this package. You have to download the compatible GApps for LineageOS (choose ARM64) and flash it right after flashing this ROM through recovery. You may use this version of TWRP or use Red Wolf TWRP which is more recommended.
