Only for mido? Will Nikel get one in the future?October 24, 2018 at 10:13 AM #57498
When I restart after installing the new Lineage 16 ROM on my MI note 4. I get a message stating my name and to type in the password. Before I do that the system automatically restarts in a few seconds, twice I was successful in typing the password really quickly and I was able to see a message that my password is correct but my data is corrupted. I think I also wiped out the “Vendor” data from my phone. Is the problem because of that? What should I do?
