Hey MIUI users,I am shreyasrocks97

LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.


Your Warranty is now void.
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD-Cards,
thermonuclear war or you getting fired because alarm app failed.
You are choosing to make these modifications in your device
and if you point a finger at me for messing up your device I will laugh at you.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

  • Nothing.

  • Everything except 'broken' stuff


Compatible with all Xiaomi Mi 5 variants (32GB / 64GB / 128GB). Xiaomi Mi 5S and 5S Plus are not supported.
Builds are based off the Xiaomi's Android 7.0 firmware with proprietary blobs from MIUI 6.12.8 dev package.

DOWNLOADSClick on me for download link


  • No custom kernels are supported in this thread. Only stock kernel and official builds will be supported. No bug reports if that's not the case.


  • Reboot to recovery (TWRP recovery for Mi 5 - Direct link)
  • Format /system, /data and /cache
  • Install LineageOS zip package
  • Install [optional] the LineageOS su addon to get root (there are obviously other root methods, but this is the recommended one as it survives to OTA updates)
  • Install [optional] a Google Apps package of your choice (Open GApps is advisable, but stock and super variants are not recommended!!!)
Important notes:
  • GApps can only be flashed on clean installs.
  • Formatting data (all user data is wiped, including internal storage) is a must if MIUI was previously installed and device was encrypted.


  • I am not the developer of the rom
  • Source
