LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of android, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock android for your device.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.





Important Info
NOTE: If you're updating from an old cm rom or unofficial lineage rom to an official lineage rom, and you want to keep your data, you must use the 'data migration build' that's labeled EXPERIMENTAL on the lineage downloads page. Otherwise you will need to wipe. See here for more info on that.

Currently, the lineage 14.1 bullhead nightlies are based on the 7.1.2 N2G47F (Apr 2017) monthly update from google. So you should be using the vendor, radio and bootloader img from that update. They can be extracted from the factory image on google's site here. Or you can use the ones linked below that I already extracted:
Note: All 3 of these are newer versions than what was in the previous monthly google update, so make sure you update all 3.
* vendor-n2g47f.img
* radio-bullhead-m8994f-2.6.37.2.21.img
* bootloader-bullhead-bhz11l.img
The vendor img is flashable with twrp or fastboot. For the radio and bootloader img, use fastboot.

More information and installation instructions can be found on the LineageOS wiki here.

Download Links
LineageOS: https://download.lineageos.org/bullhead
Google apps: Beans GApps (recommend mini)
SU addon zip: Addon Install zip / Addon Removal zip NOTE: LineageOS does not come with root, so this is now provided for those that want it. The install zip is a one time flash, like gapps. Meaning, it persists when updating to a new LineageOS nightly. REF: https://download.lineageos.org/extras

Issues with CM 14.1
Hello, today I tried to flash CM 14.1 but I had some issues like warning that my phone is corrupted or something and I have to contact manufacturer. I wasn't able to setup the device. I'm wondering if this can be flashed over purenexus 7.0 ROM with NBD90Z vendor image...or should I flash some newer vendor image ? Thanks for help community

Do not enable wifi or cellular data during setup, and it will not attempt the device setup part that you can't get past.

Otherwise pretty stable.

I've flashed it, it had some problems booting, but now its working. Here's my guideline:

1-If you do not want to get the VENDOR message at first boot, start flashing last NRD91N factory image
2-Flash TWRP from fastboot, and do a "Fastboot erase cache" and "Fastboot erase userdata"
3-Reboot into TWRP, and do a DATA Format
4-Reboot into TWRP and do a Full Wipe
5-Flash CM14.1 and OpenGapps (i used nano)
6-Reboot. Give it about 5 min, mine got stuck at CM logo. If after 5 min it does not boot, keep power button pressed for a few seconds till it reboots. It should boot properly now.
7-If after booting, entering SIM Pin code DO NOT ENABLE WIFI OR DATA. It will cause a loop on the wizard. Let both be disabled till the end of the config.
8-Reboot and you should have CM14.1 official working.

Sorry for my english.

UPDATE:

Ok, i've been doing some more testing with both official 7.0 and dev preview 7.1 and here are my results:

1-If you want, you can use 7.1 dev preview as base, using the same tutorial above. The only difference will be that after every reboot, right before PIN Code, it will tell you the VENDOR.img message. Nothing to worry about.
2-I don't know if it is a placebo effect or not, but I get better performance on the CM14.1 if I use 7.1 as base. I think it is more fluent.
3-Using 7.1 as base definetively changes something, there's a little "glitch" or graphical difference with 7.0. Here's proof:

As you can see, Menu item switch looks different from 7.0.
4-In my experience, I've decided to disable the stock Web Browser and install any other, because the one that comes with the build gives FCs some times, and I think it has some memory leak or something, that makes the OS lag. After disabling it, everything works fine.

Hope this helps to anyone.
Cheers

Im unable to complete the initial settings.
After connecting to wifi or data, im prompted to copy data from another device with some error messages and i cant proceed, im always taken back to previous settings screens.
When i try to turn off the wifi and data, the phone tell me that "unable to connect" and im taken back to "choose how to connect" screen. So... any suggestions? I even tried "factory reset" but with no luck.
Im using the newest bootloader from 7.1.1 DP, is this a possible source of the issues? Thanks!

My impressions so far are exactly as mentioned above by others with the added addition that battery icons dont work when you switch landscape and circle. Hidden and text work. Other than that the rom is pretty stable.
