All users of the custom firmwares were very saddened when the CyanogenMod project that has been with us for many years was closed. What does the closing of the project mean for the ordinary users? It means that the custom firmwares based on CyanogenMod will no longer be supported. But don’t be upset, because the project has been replaced by a new project, and its name is OS Lineage.
Lineage OS it is a kind of successor to one of the most popular roms – CyanogenMod. The Lineage OS team is already actively developing its software, based on the developments of CyanogenMod, introducing many new features into their firmware.
At the moment, the official website of Lineage OS offers its firmware for as many as 103 devices, and this number is growing every day. Unfortunately, we are likely not to see old devices in this list, that already were not supported by the CyanogenMod team.
The official website of Lineage OS can offer you 2 firmware versions (at this moment, in the future there will be stable installations):
The most stable bild at the moment is the last “night dress”, which means that it needs to be installed right now, but more on this later, now let’s talk about the existing advantages and disadvantages of the system.
So far the system Lineage OS is not much different from the famous CyanogenMod, Lineage OS so far doesn’t even have its own launcher, and the developers decided not to use Trebuchet (Launcher ciana), while Pixel Launcher and Google Start are available, you can also install any other launcher if you like.
We will not tell you why LineageOS is better, because there are specific advantages and disadvantages for each device, therefore, it is better to try it and have your own opinion.
The system is new, therefore, you cannot avoid the bugs. Let me know in the comments below what bugs have you found and I will help you to get rid of them.
First of all, you need to install the custom recovery, preferably the latest version, so that there’s less likelihood of bugs after the installation of the system.
You can tell me which model do you own in the comments, and I’ll tell you where to download and how to install custom recovery.
When the custom recovery is successfully installed, you should install the official OS Lineage:
