The former CyanogenMod team is now back with LineageOS, another Android-based ROM that is already available in the shape of a few unofficial builds that run on over 66,000 devices. The official versions coming soon promise support for over 80 handsets and weekly updates.

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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
