    Sadly, this version (lineage-14.1-20170713-UNOFFICIAL-virgo.zip) doesn’t work. It switches off the phone after few seconds with Lineage logo.
    Last one I got to run was lineage-14.1-20170513-UNOFFICIAL-virgo.zip

    Any other source or the only way to get a (semi-)proper ROM is for now Mokee?

    This seems to be the only build available. If Mokee is more stable than this then it’s better to go for that.

    The one from May, as stated, is working good.
    I’ve found on Chinese pan.baidu servers a guy, who is cooking many roms, including Lineage. BUT they are not pure, they have some bloatware. Took me a while to download and test the latest he shared – lineage-14.1-20170815-UNOFFICIAL-virgo but it was not stable.
    The Mokee thing is rock-solid. I just don’t like that it is using in the background push service from Chinese server. Naturally – blocked it.
    Plus Mokee has XPosed built-in!

    I wish someone would show me a good guide to set-up cooking station for Lineage OS then I would be willing to take care of it (I’ve at home server with 2xXeon E5540 and 48GB RAM that does nothing at the moment).

    I would suggest you to build the LineageOS of your own as you have such a huge machine at home.
    I will probably help you when I will setup my own system for LineageOS builds. Also I will write a post on how to build LineageOS as soon as possible which might also be helpful for you and other many enthusiasts who are waiting to start their own builds.

    I’ve already set-up the LineageOS dev environment. Now I do have to learn how to adjust it for Virgo.
    For that I would appreciate some guidelines or links.

    An initial build of LineageOS 15 for Mi NOTE (virgo) is available to download. You can try the build.

    Make sure to have a backup of the current ROM as I don’t know the status of the ROM.
