Lineage OS is an enhanced open source firmware distribution for smartphones and tablet computers based on the Android mobile operating system. It offers features and options not found in the official firmware distributed by vendors of these devices.
As we all know about the king of custom rom i.e cyanogenmod roms but sadly the service of cyanogenmod rom is now shut down.Now that the cyanogenmod is over that means no more nightly for cm 14, cm13, cm12 etc.
Lineage OS will be a continuation of CyanogenMod, although it will be slightly different. It will still rely on the CM source code, and as Cyanogen mentioned in their obituary, anyone can use the open source-code to continue the work. The CM team realized that a lot of users still relied on CM to get the latest Android update and so have formed the new OS.
Lineage OS Release DateAs of now, the development of Lineage OS has just begun. A website for the OS has been launched, new social media accounts have gone live and faith in humanity has been restored. There’s no word on when we can see the first version of the new OS, ready for testing and use.
However, the new team at Lineage OS have given an official word to announce more about the new OS on 27th December. We’ll be sure to update this page with all the necessary information that Lineage team shares on the given date.
