Recently, Samsung rolled out Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy A3 2017 edition (SM-A320F) in some region. However, if you prefer LineageOS 15.1 custom ROM to Samsung’s stock ROM, then a working port of unofficial LineageOS 15.1 is now available for the device, which brings Android 8.1 Oreo and a bunch of value added features to Galaxy A3.

Here is how to install LineageOS 15.1 on Galaxy A3 2017. This unofficial build supports all variants of Galaxy A3 2017, such as SM-A320F, SM-A320Y and SM-A320FL. If you own any of these variant and have latest version of TWRP installed, then you can flash the LineageOS build on it and enjoy its features.
