LG G3, ZTE Axon 7, OnePlus 3T & More Receive LineageOS 14.1

LineageOS, which is the reincarnated version of CyanogenMod, launched recently and became available for a handful of devices. And now it appears that the custom ROM is now available for a slew of new devices. Some are actually new devices, while others are a bit old. The list includes the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, ZTE Axon 7, LG G3 (on Sprint), Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and 9.7, and the HTC One M7 (GSM and Verizon models). Of course more devices will be getting their own builds in the near future. The team is working on bringing everything over from CyanogenMod to LineageOS, so these things take a bit of time.

It's a bit interesting to see the Verizon HTC One M7 and the Sprint LG G3 get LineageOS support before their GSM counterparts (read: AT&T and T-Mobile variants). Considering Verizon and Sprint are usually fairly locked down with their variants, not to mention them being CDMA devices, which are a bit more tricky to work with, especially when it comes to rooting and unlocking the bootloader. The HTC One M7 was actually released by the Taiwanese manufacturer way back in 2013, so it's nice to see devices that are approaching 4 years old, still getting support. Even if that is from a custom ROM maker. The same goes for the LG G3, although it was released in the middle of the year, after the HTC One M7.

Those that want to flash LineageOS and mess around with the new ROM, you can head to the download link below and choose the one that is appropriate for your device. Make sure that your smartphone is rooted (which means you'll be kissing your warranty goodbye before you even flash LineageOS) and download the proper Gapps package before getting ready to flash. This way you won't run into any problems and you'll actually be able to sign in when you boot it back up, and even use the Google Play Store. Remember that Android Pay likely won't work on LineageOS, seeing as Android Pay typically only works on stock operating systems, that are unrooted, which won't be your smartphone with LineageOS on it.
