How to Update Official LineageOS 14.1 on Xiaomi Mi3 W (cancro) (Experimental Build)

Great News for Xiaomi Mi3 W (cancro) owners as the device has Received the Official Experimental Build LineageOS 14.1. For those of you who are unaware. Lineage OS is the company which will be taking control of CyanogenMod services from now on.


As for Lineage OS, the new custom ROM initiative that will replace the now shutdown CyanogenMod has gained a new logo to kick off 2017. This development comes right after the project gained an official Gerrit account to help developers keep a track of the modifications being done to the code. Active development has already started with people making changes in real-time to the code. This pace of rapid development is sufficient to dispel the concerns regarding the survival of the popular ROM development community. 

What is the difference? 

  • RELEASE: Tested after integrating new features, more stable than NIGHTLY.
  • NIGHTLY: Built daily with newest code and experimental features, might contain undiscovered bugs.
  • EXPERIMENTAL: Released when a new device is added or when a new feature is added for public beta testing and feedback
  • UNOFFICIAL: Maintained separately by individual developers, usually involves modification of shared code which cannot be merged (affects other devices), therefore maintained by the developer himself.

Note: We always test the shared code for bugs, however sometimes we may not be able to detect device specific bugs. If you have such issues, it will be better to report to the device maintainer.
