As some of you may be aware we are testing out the upgrade of our source code to Pie.
As part of that effort we have a Pi/e/ ROM for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro “whyred”
In case any one wants to test the build you can download it from the link given below.
Before you proceed with the flashing and testing Please read the warning given below very carefully
Please note this is a test build.
Please take a backup of your data before your proceed.
Not all of the applications have been migrated so far to the Pie branch and so there might be flashes of Lineage code showing up especially in the setup process. You may also be asked to choose between Trebuchet and Bliss Launcher.
In some devices we have noticed that return to Oreo or Nougat builds after flashing the Pi/e/ ROM is not possible
Since this device is not supported by Lineage 16.0 officially I have used the device tree from XDA developer MyCats
The device is working correctly for me
If you are ok with all the warnings given above and still want to take the ROM out for a spin the process to flash is :
I flashed the latest pie stock ROM V10.3.1.0.PEIMIXM
thanks for your job, it looks very interesting and promissing but when I red :
I’m a little bit scared, nowadays my oreo /e/ is working so tremendously great, stable, very fast and so beautifull that I don’t want to be forced to go back to miui default creapy system
so i will wait a bit but thanks for your initiative and bravo !
It is copy-paste text, you can always flash with fastboot method to oreo or pie stock rom, you can try /e/ pie and return to /e/ oreo easilly, if you have ARB4 (if you once flash miui10 you already have it) its no problem at all.
Hi, I flashed my redmi note 5 pro( whyred) with the rom from the first post. I’m in love with the /e/ OS, so far everything works well. I Have some questions, Will be an update? Or the rom dies here? Any security update? What can i do to maintain this rom alive?
Big Thanks to the developer.
Hi @Krasi thanks for testing out the Pi/e/ test build.
As mentioned these are test builds which we have made to check out how they work on specific devices. We have a small team of dedicated testers who have been building Pi/e/ ROM’s for their devices and testing it out. Thanks to some excellent support from the user who also helped us with their feedback and tested these ROM’s.
Now we are preparing to release the Pie version of /e/ . Since it is a version change there are some device specific instructions that will also be required to be shared with the users. Especially users who are currently on previous versions of the OS on their devices. Flashing Pie at least the initial build may be manual. Subsequent builds will be OTA for all devices. Once the device is on the supported list the support + patches will be regular.
Lineage dropping support for a device will not be a reason for /e/ dropping support. At present we are not dropping any device from our supported list. In fact we are adding more devices to our list of supported devices !
We are working on the infrastructure to regulate receiving security patches on all devices - especially ones not supported by Lineage but still on our list.
I have problem with pie builds, first build was compiled on server, now i use my pc and all my pie builds fail at 99%, so if someone want build this rom with all updates ( fresh install required for new rom as sources changed) here is instruction:
In your /srv/e/src/PIE folder open terminal and run this commands:
Hi @andrelam, last night I flashed the rom from your post. Flash process went well, with no issues. Now I’ll install the apps that I use daily. And if there is something that doesn’t work well, I’ll let you know.
Thanks for the effort and Your time.
