LineageOS 18.1 has been made available for owners of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 family of devices. The stock Android-like custom ROM will, however, only work with the Exynos variants of these devices at this stage, however.

LineageOS is one of the most popular custom Android ROMs out there, which is not surprising given its origins. The lineage its name refers to is the now defunct CyanogenMod project and continues to stay true to its origins by remaining open-source. Among its advantages are bringing a highly customizable stock Android-like experience to devices with manufacturer skins as well as more long-term software support.

In good news for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 family of devices, the Android 11-based LineageOS 18.1 is now compatible with these devices. Unfortunately, it is limited to only the Exynos variants of these devices at this stage. As the global version, it makes sense that the active developer community would focus on bringing support to these devices first, with Snapdragon support expected at a later stage. Support has also been added for the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Poco F2 Pro.

Of course, you will need experience flashing the ROM on an Android device, or watch a YouTube video on how to do it at the very least. Of course, there is the chance that you could brick your device, so it is probably best to install the ROM if you have an older phone that is no longer your daily driver. You will also need to install Google apps and Services separately as these aren’t included in the LineageOS 18.1 build.

Buy an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (refurbished) from Amazon from US$354, a 40% saving.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
