If you own Xiaomi Mi Note 2 (code-named scorpio) and want to try all the aforementioned features on it, then you can download the LineageOS 15.1 build and flash via TWRP custom recovery. As you all know, installing this ROM requires unlocked bootloader on the phone.

Keep in mind that the present status of the ROM is ‘Nightly’, which means the ROM is not fully stable. You may experience some unknown bugs while using this build. We do not recommend installing this build on your primary phone.

Installation:

If you have any issue installing the LineageOS 15.1 on Xiaomi Mi Note 2, first unlock the bootloader by going to Xiaomi’s unlock page and then install TWRP on it and then follow this guide.

Note that, as the ROM does not include Gapps (Google apps and services), users need to flash open Gapps after flashing the ROM to get Play store and other Google features.
