Huawei's smartphones barely receive porting from third-party ROMs, mainly due to the lack of HiSilicon chipset drivers, which discourage developers from performing portability tasks. Therefore, the owners of Huawei P8 Lite will be happy to know that there is a stable porting of Lineage OS 13.0 and that is already under construction version 14.1 that will bring the latest version of the green robot in this small Chinese smartphone.

ROM seems to suffer only a couple of problems, but these do not prevent the use. That is: the video recording and the second SIM will not work, but otherwise have not reported any problems. In order to continue with the installation it is necessary to install a custom recovery TWRP. Then you can download the file of the ROM and the OpenGapps that you prefer, since as in most of the custom ROMs, Google applications are not integrated. After saving the data you will have to proceed to the factory restore of the Huawei P8 Lite, and then with the installation of the ROM and OpenGapps.

Huawei P8 Lite does not abandon Android Marshmallow

Lineage OS 13.0 Unofficial Stable for the Huawei P8 Lite 1

Since this is a project based on Lineage OS 13.0, this means that the original operating system is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and therefore some very interesting features of Android Nougat are impossible to use, such as split view. The stability of the ROM, however, is very high. We remind you, in any case, that the development team that has worked on this ROM has said that it is working to optimize a customized ROM based on Lineage OS 14.1, which would conform to what offers Android 7.1 Nougat.
