If you own one of these smartphones and want to try the custom ROM, you need to follow the WiKi link corresponding to your device to download the latest nightly version from the list below.

Before installing the custom ROM on your smartphone, we recommend that you carefully read all the information in the LineageOS Wiki, as the operation is not without risks, make a complete backup of all your data, unlock the bootloader with a custom recovery such as TWRP and to have the Google apps (GApps) to be installed at the first start of the operating system.

LineageOS 18.1 is appreciated in the modding landscape as it offers a clean software experience very close to that of the series. In addition to the usual Android 11 features such as conversation notifications, chat bubbles and smart device controls, the custom ROM also adds some interesting features and improvements.

Highlights include a built-in backup tool, the ability to customize the status bar and lock screen, network traffic monitoring, and much more.
