LineageOS continues to expand step by step among smartphone users who love modding. The custom ROM, which was built on the ashes of the historical CyanogenMod, is a great success and its developers have a new gift for their followers. The LG G5, high-end smartphones from 2016, and the Samsung Galaxy S4, can now test the latest version of this retouched Android.
LineageOS 14.1, the CyanogenMod substitute
Going into detail, the LineageOS 14.1 is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which is practically the latest stable version of Android. This is great news for the LG G5, especially since it is a product that has had little commercial success, but still today remains as one of the best devices of the past year. The Galaxy S4, due to being older, has been somewhat outdated, but this fact itself also makes a great achievement that now can have Android Nougat.
However, as always in these cases, we would like to remember that there may be errors present in this first version of the ROM for these two smartphones. Of course, development will continue in the coming weeks, further refining the ROM for both devices. On the other hand, one of the strengths of LineageOS is the huge community behind it, so that's all good news.
The compatibility offered by LineageOS allows us to install it in our devices without problems, and this way it will continue in the next months. If you want to download and try LineageOS 14.1 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat for LG G5 and Galaxy S4, we provide you the link where you will find the official guide for installation and then the download links.
