Potato Open Sauce Project (POSP) 10 For the Redmi 5 Plus

1 minute read

Android 10-based POSP is now available for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (India) / Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus (International). This ROM is marked as an alpha build, so we would advise only experienced users try it out at this stage. There are issues with the Goodix-based fingerprint scanner, and issues with the thermal engine — stay away if you expect complete daily driver material.


This is an alpha build, no support will be provided for it.

WORK and what’s NOT

WorkingRIL, WiFi, Camera, Bluetooth, Sensors, Audio, Media, Playback, IR, GPS
Not WorkingGoodix FP, Thermal engine is cucked (device will overheat if used while charging)
UntestedVoLTE, Fpc Fingerprint (probably works though)

NOTE: Do not attempt to flash a custom kernel in this rom, cause they’re currently not adapted to Q’s filesystem changes. Magisk does not currently work, it is a magisk bug and will hopefully be updated soon. Do NOT flash magisk as it is currently incompatible and will cause Wi-Fi issues and bootloops

Another phone

Android 10 is finally here, and it brings along a lot of goodies that software enthusiasts will appreciate. Officially, stable Android 10 is available on Google Pixel devices, the Essential Phone, and the Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro, while beta builds can be found for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, and Samsung had been spotted testing the update with OneUI 2.0 for the Snapdragon and Exynos Samsung Galaxy S10 and Exynos Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

Source code for the new release is already up and available at AOSP, which brought to us the first Android 10 custom ROM, that too on the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 with practically no bugs.

Now, more Android 10 custom ROMs have begun sprouting up for devices like the Xiaomi POCO F1, the Xiaomi Mi 6, and the Xiaomi Mi 8 beside this POSP 10 for Redmi 5 Plus (vince).

Additional notes: LineageOS 16.0
