Android Oreo on Redmi Note 4 | Guide

5

Well being a device whose source code is quite easily available, tons of custom ROMs are quite expected. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is one of them resulting in getting stock based custom ROMs quite early from 3rd Party developers from XDA and much more so that you don’t have to wait for official MIUIs updates which are obviously gonna be late. Same this time, it has also got the Oreo based ROM to give users that experience packed in the bundles of Lineage OS 15.0. So Go through the guide below and get Android Oreo on your device-

Prerequisites:

You need to have an unlocked bootloader and TWRP recovery installed on your device. If you haven’t unlocked bootloader and installed TWRP then follow this link.

Make a backup of your data on your Internal storage(as it is going to be wiped) and the current ROM in case of boot loop issues.

CHECK THE ORIGINAL XDA THREAD HERE

Downloads required:  Lineage OS 15.0 and GAPPS

 

1. Turn Off your device completely and move into your custom recovery by holding Volume Up and Power button together..

2. Once you are on TWRP then select wipe and swipe to do a factory reset

3. Now go back and select Format data and type “yes” if prompted and enter to wipe the Internal Storage.

4. Now copy the files downloaded onto your SD card (in case you have downloaded on your PC directly).

5. Now go the home of TWRP, select Reboot and Select Recovery.

6. Once you are booted again, go to Install then navigate to the destination where you have placed the downloads (both the zips)

7. Now flash the Lineage 15.0 zip and then Gapps package.

8. Once it is done flashing then tap on “Reboot System” and tap on “ Do not install

That’s it. You have successfully installed the Lineage OS 15.0 i.e, Android Oreo on your Redmi Note 4 successfully.
