LineageOS to offer weekly updates and support for over 80 devices
Cyanogen OS might be dead, but it has a direct successor and even about the same team behind it. After CyanogenMod's demise, the former developers who worked at Cyanogen Inc. teamed up to continue their work, and so LineageOS was born.
The highlights of the new mobile operating system include weekly updates, support for over 80 handsets (to be detailed soon), unrooted by default, and - probably best part for old Cyanogen OS users - experimental support for upgrading from Cyanogen to Lineage. For now, the LineageOS team recommends a clean install, but it is great to see they are working on offering a direct upgrade path to those currently using Cyanogen OS.
According to the official install stats page, the unofficial builds currently in the wild run on over 66,000 devices. The most popular countries are China, India, and Russia, closely followed by the United States and Germany, each of them with over 3,000 installs. We will get back to LineageOS as soon as the first official build comes out, so stay tuned.
