    Many thanks for this release.

    I installed few days ago the release 15.1 proposed by Dreamstar. I also installed GAPPS 8.1 (stock). I did the installation after data formatting (thanks to TWRP).

    I got following errors:
    a/ after first installation of the lineadge rom, first boot takes a long time (more than 30 mins). It seems that there should be a loop issue. I had to reboot the mobile two or three times during boot process. I also tried to install the resurection remix rom (8.1) with similar problem.

    b/ systematic crash of googlecamera (not possible to take any photo/video). I resolved this issue by removing googlecamera and installing googlecamera apk from the xda lab

    c/ not possible to send any MMS when data is not active. It seems that there is an issue with APN settings and MMS (I use a french provider called “Free” or “Free mobile”).


    Android 10 based LineageOS 17 for Redmi 4x is now available to download and install. Interested guys can check that out!
