LineageOS for the Huawei Ascend Mate 2

LineageOS is an aftermarket firmware for a number of cell phones and tablets based on the open-source Android operating system. It offers features not found in the official Android-based firmwares from vendors. Read more about LineageOS at lineageos.org.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 (mt2) is officially supported by LineageOS. Relevant information is on the LineageOS Wiki. You can download official install packages from download.lineageos.org/mt2.

I provide some unofficial builds here occasionally to either test new features or provide users with a custom release that I consider stable. None of these builds are officially supported by LineageOS. Bug reports on these builds are not accepted through LineageOS’ bug tracking system.

Downloads

  • GApps: Open GApps – Normally GApps would be optional, but the Qualcomm locations package prevents the device from booting if Google services are missing. So, GApps need to be installed at the same time as LineageOS is installed.
  • Recovery: Unnoficial builds of TWRP are available here.
