    THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY NOT BOOT AT ALL. EVEN IF IT BOOTS IT MAY HAVE MANY BUGS. SO YOU MAY HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Vibe K5 Plus / K5 (A6020) requires the bootloader to be unlocked on the Vibe K5 Plus / K5 (A6020) phone, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.

    Root binary is inbuilt in Lineage OS 14.1, so you don’t need a separate SuperSu package to install to gain ROOT access. Here is How to Enable ROOT on Lineage OS 14.1
    If there is no in-built ROOT or it does not work for some reason then you can try flashing SuperSU zip using recovery to gain ROOT access.


    1. Follow this if you are flashing Lineage OS 14.1 for Vibe K5 Plus / K5 (A6020) for the first time, or coming from another ROM:

      Points to NOTE:

    Thanks, well, i have installed the 20170109 compilation and is working very good everything is working well except for:

    it have the FM radio app but isn´t working
    problem with the file explorer and the sd card (installing other FX works)



    Hi, thanks very much for the rom, I try out the version lineage-14.1-20170121-UNOFFICIAL-A6020 on my K5 A6020l37 and it works very well, only a few bugs I have found, such at the sound when the device starts that it leaves when reproducing a sound, the notification sound that sounds a little bit bad, like if they have some kind of rare noise on the beginin of it, also the notification LED don’t turn on when you recib a notification and finally the galery that doesn’t allow you to edit an image, othen than that, it’s a nice rom!

    Hello, i followed all the steps, but the phone refuses to boot now.
    Normally (factory state), when you press the vol+/power to go to recovery menu, some kind of Lenovo menu appears. There are several buttons (MMItest,PCBA test, HW info,…) and one of them is “recovery”.
    After i flashed the TWRP thru adb, everything was fine, Lenovo menu appeared, after pressing the recovery button it went to TWRP.

    Then i made the factory reset, flashed the Lineagerom zip and gapps zip.
    After the reboot, phone shows Lenovo logo, than goes black screen (or maybe power off).
    If i press vol+/power to go to recovery menu, nothing happens.
    What am i doing wrong?

    I was able to boot into recovery again thru adb and restore the original rom from backup and tried all the steps again but the result is still the same.
    Thanks for your help.

    I confirm the problems were caused by older version of TWRP. I flashed 3.1 version and latest build of Lineage and it boots OK after restart. Just the Lenovo boot menu is not accesible, when you press vol+/power, nothing happens. To get to recovery menu you have to press vol+/vol-/power.




    Thanks Kra B for the links. I have updated the same on the main Download section.



    Recently I have found the OFFICIAL Lineage OS 14.1 for the Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus / K5. The download link to the official Lineage OS 14.1 has been updated.


    Tengo el Lenovo K5 Edición Especial de México (K5 Plus), instalé la ROM pero tiene algunos problemas, por ejemplo con MyMail no suena bien la notificación. Cuando conecto los audifinos que vienen con el celular empieza a subirse de volumen solo y la linterna no funciona, si puedo tomar fotos con flash pero prender el flash como linterna no funciona.
