LineageOS is a free, community-built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 14, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

What works?

  • Almost everything

What does not work?

  • FM Radio

Installation notes:

  • Please UNLOCK your bootloader before continuing.
  • Builds are otapackages only.
  • Please flash these builds on devices that were shipped in 2022. Read the upper note for help.

As a longtime Cyanogenmod/LineageOS user on previous phones, this is truly great to have. I have 3 hopefully-easy questions:

  1. Can we anticipate ongoing updated versions with new security patches?
  2. If so, can they be installed without doing a factory reset?
  3. Now that Lineage 21 GApps are available, can we flash Google Apps right after Lineage, as is possible with “official” builds? (Unfortunately I do need the full Play Store and some other services.)

Thanks!
