Lenovo A6000/Plus LineageOS 2018 Edition

Lenovo A6000/Plus custom ROM development in 2018 is pretty much active and thanks to developer Harsh for his continuous contribution towards the device. Lenovo A6000 LineageOS is the successor of CyanogenMod that has been renamed by the developers of the community.

The LineageOS custom ROM is more secured with latest security patch and it comes with minimal features to sustain the performance of the device. Compiled with the sources of Android Nougat 7.1.1 it runs on 64 bit CPU architecture giving the privilege to install 64-bit applications on real runtime without any error. You can even install GApps under ARM64 to boost the performance of your Lenovo A6000 and Plus.

What is Lineage OS?

It is based on the Android Open Source Project that has been developed over years after succeeding over CyanogenMod. It is the aftermarket project that runs on Android 6 and later versions. The community people have been proficient enough to contribute towards the project throughout the time and have made it one of the best modified operating system for Android devices.

The source code for LineageOS can be found on Github repo under LineageOS. You can contribute towards the ongoing project by visiting the Gerrit Code Review.

  3. I am using this ROM for past 1 month… app moving to SD card is the main problem. So fix it as soon as possible and please share the STOCK ROM for A6000 Plus (Not A6000)

  4. Installed this CM11 just now on Lenovo a6000 plus just now. But it’s not detecting my Sim card! :/
    Am i the only one with this problem?
    Please help me, or any leads would be appreciable! :)
    Thanks in advance!

  5. For those who are facing YouTube videos playing in green and pink issue, just try lower version of YouTube i.e 4.5.17 version for work around solution, I tried it works for me.

  6. thanx to genius aswm admin try to bring lolipop in it fast ………….no bugs working fine ………….no video errors

  7. when i play music with earphones connected, and turn on the flash and off it again the music stops playing. again after turning the flash on music resumes playing.

  8. Admin,
    One more bug: speaker output decrease automatically on viber calling/ watsapp calling. Pls fix the issue if possible and also provide fix for moving apps to SD.

  9. Works fantastic. 2 major issues though.
    Youtube App- Green and Pink videos.
    Whatsapp- Whatsapp calling doesn’t work well after installing this rom.
    I hope admin will fix this.

    • Also my phone is getting heated up a lot whenever I insert a sd card. And Media Server (which is a process to scan for media on various storage types) is consuming a lot of battery.

  10. Admin,

    Thanks for this wonderful ROM. It runs superb smooth, battery backup is great. Lenovo ROM really very slow compare to this ROM. Bugs I noticed during 2 days of usage: 1. When you play video either in youtube or offline using VLC, video shows green and pink colors for 1-2 secs than its normal. 2. No option to move apps in SD card. this is major limitation

    Overall 9/10 for this ROM. Admin kindly provide which ROM is better this CM11 or PACMAN? PACMAN allows apps transfer to SD card in lenovo a6000?


  12. Admin

    No way to move apps to SD card. No option to move SD in Setting->Apps. App2SD is also not able to move. I tried exposed.apk also but it also failed. This is major limitation of CM11 since lenovo a6000 comes with only 8GB internal memory and external memory is almost useless in this ROM.

    Pls provide the solution to move apps to SD card.


    • CM11 Ultra Smooth Rooted Rom is good for battery backup. Use NQ Booster after installation.

  13. Can i install all apps by default to SD card? I could not even find option for moving app to sd card in settings->apps

    • You cannot install apps by default to SD card, but hopefully you can move them to the SD card from the Settings > Apps > Select the app and move to SD card. Or you can use Apps2SD app, download it from playstore.

      • Not able to move apps using settings- apps because no option there to move app to SD. I also tried app2sd but its also not able to move apps. Pls do needful to move apps to SD

  14. I have the problem with youtube, when playing video its only has red and green color, and when we change the setting storage of camera, the camera won’t save pictures, any solution please?
    sorry for my bad english.

  15. CM11 supports any PC suits? after installing CM 11 will i be able to transfer data from PC to mobile and vice verse?

  16. This is surely good. Please let me know the following:
    Does the ROM have those sick chinese keyboards like Baidu etc or have google keyboard as a default?
    Does it support app2sd so the apps can be moved on to sd card?
    Will this result into CM12 or 12.1?
    Do all buttons work(including back button)?
    Does anything including system app force close?
    Do GPS work properly as it doesnt work in CM OS ROM or any other ROM.
    Does bluetooth work including BT headset?
    I believe if the above answers are favorable we are surely good to go

    Awaiting confirmation…Thanks

    • I’ve the CM12 version, there are lots of bugs. Major are – Camera app not working, GPS not working, Single sim working, System crashes often. Please expect CM12 to be out without bugs once Lenovo A6000/Plus lollipop update is released.
