While the release of official Lineage OS builds is imminent, the development team behind the Lineage OS (former CyanogenMod) has revealed some technical information about the new ROM and lists supported devices. According to the team, the first build of Lineage OS will be released this weekend and the new OS will support nearly 80+ devices. The release will be weekly (not daily like CyanogenMod) and the OS comes with root disabled.

Unlike CyanogenMod, the LineageOS nightly builds will be released once a week. The installation process of Lineage OS is same as any other custom ROM and requires a clean installation (by wiping system). However, there will be an ‘experimental’ LineageOS build for those who want to migrate from the CyanogenMod installation without wiping data.



Note that the experimental builds of Lineage OS will only be available for all supported devices for two months. Users can install this build to transfer data from their previous CyanogenMod installation. Once the experimental migration build installed, users can upgrade to the latest weekly builds without losing data.

Keep in mind do not install experimental LineageOS 14.1 build on top of CyanogenMod 13.0 or LineageOS 13 on top of CyanogenMod 14.1, as they will not work. Make sure you download and flash the correct builds for your device.

Lineage OS official download portal, install stats page, and Lineage OS Wiki are now live. Below is the list of Android smartphones that supports official Lineage OS. More information available at here.
