    I have update two more builds of LineageOS 14.1 for Redmi 5a.

    Linux User

    LineageOS 14.1 for Redmi 5A (riva) is now available to download via an initial development build. This post provides the download link to the Android Nougat based LineageOS 14.1 for Redmi 5A (riva) and guides through the installation process of the same. This LineageOS 14.1 for Redmi 5A is brought to you by developer sunnyraj84348 and another build is by MacTavish.


    If you like this ROM then do consider for a small contribution to sunnyraj84348, MacTavish and LineageOS project:
    – No donation link found for MacTavish
    – No donation link found for sunnyraj84348
    Donate to LineageOS project

    If you want the OFFICIAL LineageOS 14.1 update or some more Android Nougat ROMs then stay tuned to the LineageOS 14.1 ROMs devices list, LineageOS 15 page or the AOSP Oreo ROMs devices list page.

    THIS IS AN INITIAL DEVELOPMENT BUILD WHICH MAY HAVE MANY BUGS. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM requires an unlocked bootloader on Redmi 5A, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. Understand that you are the only person making changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.
