LineageOS drops support for 30 devices, including the Redmi Note 3 and Moto G4

Monday, November 26th, 2018

The LineageOS custom ROM used to support just about every phone imaginable, but lately the project has been going for quality over quantity. Oreo (15.1) builds have to fulfill stricter requirements to receive official status, and now Lineage is dropping support for 30 unmaintained phones and tablets.

Lineage recently announced that builds for a given device would be disabled unless the maintainer (the person porting the ROM to the device) regularly checks in.

LineageOS 15.1 Oreo is moving to nightly builds, 14.1 Nougat will switch to monthly releases

Monday, November 12th, 2018

Many moons ago, CyanogenMod offered daily builds for supported devices, so you could get the latest and greatest code on your phone instantly. The LineageOS custom ROM has so far stuck to weekly builds, mostly to conserve server space and processing power. According to a GitHub commit, the project has now reversed this decision, and some devices are now receiving nightly releases.

Before now, all officially-supported phones and tablets received new builds once a week.

LineageOS 15.1 coming to the Huawei Honor 4X, Fairphone 2, and more

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

The last time we covered LineageOS, it added support for the 2016 Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Since then, more devices have been added and removed. Two Asus phones and an LG device are no longer supported, but four more phones have joined the party.

First, let's cover the removals. LineageOS 14.1 for the LG K10 (m216) has been discontinued, possibly due to the maintainer being inactive. The official forum hasn't had a reply from the developer since February.

LineageOS 15.1 now available for the 2016 Pixel and Pixel XL

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

The Nexus devices of old were some of the best phones when it came to custom ROMs, and while the Pixels are still popular options for software mods, CyanogenMod/LineageOS has never offered official builds. I'm not sure the exact reason why, but I assume it had something to do with the A/B partitioning scheme, or perhaps there was not a maintainer available to work on it.

Regardless of why it wasn't available before, official LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1) builds are now live for the 2016 Google Pixel (sailfish) and Pixel XL (marlin).

Since then, more phones have been added to the LineageOS 15.1 build roster, including Motorola's 2017 flagship and the Sony Xperia XA2.

Before we get to the new devices, builds have stopped for two targets. LineageOS 15.1 is no longer available for the HTC One A9 (hiae), due to issues with calling.
