    exposed framework install error lineage is 14.1 ,and volte not support, twrp recovery not work how to fix

    Thank’s a lot for this ROM built.
    It works pretty nice and fluid, the battery life is similar than the Xiaomi one.
    I have only one litle issue, it’s about the physical buttons.
    The recent button thasn’t work, but it’s not a real problem for me because I prefer the virtual keys, in special in this phone (in my case in black color) where the buttons are practicaly invisivel in the black body frame.
    I just root the phone in the developers options, and then with the “soft key” apk, install the virtual buttons and disable the physical ones.
    Maybe in future version, you can provide this option to enable the virtual keys in the buttons settings.
    Good work, and thanks for your job.


    Nice ROM. Minimalistic and powerfull, that’s what I like.
    One thing. MIUI 9 Dev (i.e. Android 7) need to be installed before this ROM, otherwise gyro and position sensors not working.
    Small bug: if alarm is set it’s activating for short time after reboot


    Thanks for the nice ROM.
    I have a bug, once I tried to power off the phone (either by pressing POWER botton or issuing “reboot -p”), the phone kept rebooting forever.
    So there is no way to turn off the phone. I must keep the phone on forever.


    Hello! I installed the linageos on my redmi 4x and it works very fine.
    Here some little issues
    Recent app button is not recognized as a recent apps button but as a mebu button so i can’t change its functions in the parameters….

    That for now the only problem.

    Hope an update soon
