    THIS IS AN INITIAL TEST BUILD WHICH BOOTS BUT HAS MANY MORE BUGS THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. HIS CANNOT BE USED AS A DAILY DRIVER IN ANYWAY. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM may require unlocking the bootloader on Vibe B, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person making changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.

    I really liked the initiative to make a Custom ROM for my device, I tested the ROM installation and wanted to notify the following comments: TWRP is starting good, it really works, but ROM installs, it just does not start, restarting the screen. Boot infinitely, forcing me to return to Stock ROM, waiting for new updates, thank you.

    Hi @eduardo_claro_monteiro

    The Lineage 13 for Vibe B is no more. Instead you can try the latest LineageOS 14.1 Nougat ROM for Vibe B.
