LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */
LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community.

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.

Unofficial LineageOS Builds
Pixel XL (marlin): https://updater.invisiblek.org/marlin
Pixel (sailfish): https://updater.invisiblek.org/sailfish

Google apps
Google apps (opengapps nano) are baked in to these builds. This is due to the A/B partition layout and complications backing up/restoring gapps between builds. This is not ideal, and is the major road block to getting this device in to official status with Lineage. I also include the Google camera app rather than Camera2 or Snap since it works much better.

Source
While I update the official LineageOS trees with completely usable source, these builds include a few more experimental things than what I would include in official Lineage builds, pending that ever happens. The device and kernel repos that these builds are based off are from my github.

Installation
The easiest way to install LineageOS is to load up twrp (see twrp thread on how to do that) and flash the zip from above for your pixel variant (marlin/sailfish). After that, the built-in updater app should handle future updates via A/B updates within android. Beware this feature is still a work in progress and can be broken at any time as well. If for whatever reason the install fails through the updater app, loading up twrp again and flashing a newer zip is perfectly acceptable.

The LineageOS team would like to thank everyone involved in helping with testing, coding, debugging & documenting! Enjoy!

How come gapps are still baked in when there are working gapps for pixel? Beans gapps works fine.

Glad to see this finally getting an XDA thread so it gets more awareness. I only knew this existed prior due to the questions and answers thread.

I know OP says it comes with nano gapps. But does that mean that it has all the essential pixel gapps. I can't find myself using the also ones. I wish there was a flashable stock gapps package

You can't flash beans full gapps? Actually it will probably just have duplicates since gapps are already installed

That is correct. However, the there are still those aosp apps that don't hold a candle to the Google alternatives. I am super used to flashing the stock Google package on all my phones. I guess I will just stay on stock May Factory Image until I find one with all pixel features. Lineage OS is one of the most stable ROMs that I have came across.

What apps are you looking for that can't just be downloaded from the play store? Any of the AOSP ones can be disabled, so you never see them (yea a bit of a pain but you only have to do it once per app that you replace from the play store). For instance, I install google's calendar app and disable the AOSP one. You can do the same with any other app as far as I know.

All apps are on the Play Store. I will end up disabling them I guess

That's what I do. Then things stay put when you flash an update. If you delete the app it will come back when you flash an update.

Cool beans and good to see you again invis (I've also had tenderloin, d2vzw and vs985 so you've kind of been following me around). How's the general status of the build? Any known breakages?

And btw, the changelog links on the download page don't go anywhere.
