Lineage OS 14.1 (Nougat)

This rom works on the following devices:
Homtom HT16 w/ CPU MT6580 only!

- Minor improvements.

Gapps: No
Rooted: Yes 

How to Install:

- Download Lineage OS Rom

- Put on the root of the phone or sdcard

- Reboot into Custom Recovery

- Do a backup of your present rom (optional)

- Wipe Cache/Data/System

- Install Lineage OS ROM

- Don't Wipe Dalvik Cache If you've installed gapps with this rom!

- Reboot (It may take a while longer than usual. Up to 5 minutes on first boot). Please  be patient, at the end you will have a fully working Lineage OS Nougat ROM.

(It will be in Russian by default but if you manage to find the settings button and then click on the "A"/Globe button which stands for "languages", in the first line you can easily change into your own language).
Google Apps are pico version, which comprises only of Google Play Store and Google Services.

There might be some remnant Russian language at some icons on notifications menu since this ROM was ported by a Russian citizen. Just click on them and they will change to your designated language.



※Please make a backup of your device before installing or updating ROM

    Hi Needromlovers. in ht16 device, this firmware have a error in the display, the screen turns black and it has to be restarted, apparently there is a problem with the screen driver.

      I love the language choices – Lineage 13 only has Russian, Ukrainian and English.
      For me works fine (as far as I can tell) untill reboot – then I get black screen and nothing can be done.
      Any solutions to this issue?

    Thanks for making these ROMs available here to an English speaking audience rucaxp!

    I tried this one on my recently purchased HT16. The good: it's LineageOS 14.1 with a security patch level of November 5, 2017, yay! The bad: the screen rotation doesn't work correct, when holding the device in portrait mode the screen rotates to landscape mode and vice versa. Even if you lock the screen to portrait mode, when taking pictures they will be saved with the wrong orientation which is very annoying! Also the flashlight doesn't work. And at some point the battery level suddenly dropped by 50%?! Might contain more bugs.

    Now with the aid of Google Translate I had a look at the Russian 4PDA forums. It seems until recently most HT16's had either a V6 or V9 stock firmware. My device came with a V1.0.3. firmware, it lists build number as HOMTOM-HT16-Android-6.0-V1.0.3_user-20171221. There was some talk about this new firmware on 4PDA too.

    I guess the custom ROMs that have been made until now are based on the older firmwares and don't work without bugs on phones that come with a V1.x build. I even tried a V9.1.1 official ROM and it also had the screen rotation bug. Also tried DotOS and it had the same bug.

    Hopefully the changes needed for these newer devices will soon be incorporated, until then I'll just use the stock ROM rooted with Magisk and most bloatware and Google Services removed by hand :)

    Shout out to all the devs, hackers and Android enthousiasts out there!

    First thing when I received this phone: installing this ROM. It's good, it works fast (considering the low-end hardware) and stable on the Homtom HT16. I encountered a few tiny issues:

    - Stock camera app crashes when trying to record video (video calls in Whatsapp for instance are no problem)

    - Contacts stored on SIM card are not found. But this seems to be a wider Lineage OS bug, not only this ROM. Haven't tried the second SIM card slot yet.

    I cannot reproduce the issues thatnot a robot describes: rotation works as expected, the flashlight works and until now I haven't seen sudden battery drops.

    All in all I would recommend this ROM for daily use. It would be great if this phone becomes an official supported LineageOS device! So, thanks rucaxp and nicitos505020 for the great work and keep those updates coming!
