ROMs for the Xiaomi Pocophone F1

It is a good smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU that is the one that assemble the range bumps this year. However, in other sections, such as the camera and materials, it is obviously inferior.
Now we go with the ROMs for the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 . Things are still new for this model because it was launched not long ago. We have not yet seen an official version of TWRP but that has not stopped the developer community from working on the phone.
One such developer, in particular, the XDA member abhishek987 has released his unofficial compilation of LineageOS 15.1 for this smartphone. Then other developers such as akhilnarang, Shreesha.Murthy, Shahan_mik3 followed with the compilations of Resurrection Remix, AOSiP and AOSP Extended respectively.
The compilation of LineageOS 15.1 for the Little F1 is not official at this time because it has not yet complied with all the points of the requirements letter of the LineageOS device . We may see this version become official in the near future, especially considering that abhishek987 is a member of the LineageOS team.
The ROMs for the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 most things work, including: RIL (Calls, SMS, Data), fingerprint, Wifi, Bluetooth, camera, camcorder, video playback, Audio, sensors, LED, GPS and Volte.
