– Here is the TWRP update guide for Redmi 4x. This recovery guide requires an unlocked bootloader on the phone.
Root binary is NOT inbuilt in LineageOS ROM, so you may need a separate SuperSu package or LineageOS su binary to install to gain ROOT access. Here is LineageOS Rooting guide
If there is no in-built ROOT or it does not work for some reason then you can try SuperSU rooting guide to enable ROOT access.
Points to NOTE:
– Try to avoid restoring apps backup using Titanium Backup. It may break things up.
– Don’t restore system data using Titanium Backup! It will definitely break the current installation.
– It is also discouraged to Restoring Apps + Data using Titanium Backup.
This will delete all your data on your phone. You may consider complete backup of your phone data or take a NANDROID backup of the current ROM

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”).
