How to Install LineageOS the former Android Cyanogen ROM

LineageOS is the continuation of the famous CyanogenMod, the Android ROM preferred by the vast majority of enthusiasts and those who have been tired of the Samsung, LG, HTC, Huawei ROM ROMs, etc.

When we buy a new phone…

When we buy a new phone or even a second hand, they are fresh (even sh), because they either have the freshly installed ROM or reset.
When it's new, any phone is moving very well, this for a few weeks / months.

Why are the phones going wrong after a few months?

Whether they have a heavy interface, or the stock ROM has been rushed, the phones do not seem so good with the passing of time.
Reasons why phones slow down after a while:

1. Many applications are installed.
2. It loads excessive storage (cube youtube, chrome, facebook).
3. The graphical interface is too cumbersome (Samsung, LG, HTC).
4. Basic applications receive some buggy updates
5. phone has not implemented TRIM well for managing internal memory.

LineageOS, option number 1 after ROM stock.

LineageOS is a ROM made to give the user the most enjoyable experience for a longer period of time.
The optimizations at the graphical interface level and hardware management make LineageOS the first option for those who do not understand the stock ROM.

But there are other ROMs!

Indeed, there are a lot of custom Android ROMs, but I do not know how many of them you can trust. Today, when personal data is so hunted, few ROM developers can be trusted.
Over time, the Cyanogen team, now LineageOS, has shown that it is not worthwhile to endanger the brand hardly built in so many years.
A developer who came out yesterday on the market, lets him steal user data, because he does not have much to lose.

But what about the stock ROM on the phone?

We have absolutely nothing if it moves well. I do not recommend anyone to change the ROM if it is good and does not give any signs of fatigue.
Stock stocks are best suited to your device and should be the rum that makes the most of hardware.
For example, on OnePlus 3, I tried a lot of Camera applications and none worked as well as the basics. There are cases when stock ROMs eat our nerves on bread, and in this case I have to call a rum like LineageOS.

What we need - LineageOS installation.

1. Bootloader unlocked on your phone or tablet
2. Custom recovery installed on your phone
3. LineageOS ROM for your phone (zip)
4. Gapps for your version of LineageOS (openGapps)

  1. When you have time to do a great review of the ROM, I planned to install it on the phone but first I need to replace the battery

  2. Hello Cristi,
    It should be noted that on some devices, especially when installing Lineage, everything must be deleted, Advanced wipe (system, data, cache, dalvik cache), because only with factory reset it can be too "stuck in boot". I say this from experience, I have a Oneplus One.
    I would also be particularly interested in a tutorial with the installation of the Aroma Gapps package… more precisely, the names of those applications, what we choose, why…. about which most of us have no idea…
    Thank you.

      If you give the factory reset, as in the tutorial, all those listed by you will be deleted

  3. I installed the new ROM on the Samsung Galaxy SIII and it's moving well. Unfortunately, camera applications and photo playback do not know recognize the SD card.

    I have a Huawei Mate 9. EMUI seems to me the fastest and best custom OS at the moment. I had a P9 before, and I can say that, too, gave me a good impression. As you said, if the original ROM moves well, there's no point in changing it with a custom one.
    In addition, I do not think there is a custom rom that works perfectly (overall, it moves faster than the original, but it certainly has small problems). My advice: If you want a good phone, keep the original rum and install a good launcher. You do not need anything else.

    Do not install on HTC One M8 as a buggun / unstable
    I installed LineageOS on HTC One M8, everything went smooth. I must mention that I have always installed custom ROMs since CM11 appeared. I have installed GApps, the ROM and the special lineage from Lineage boys that unlocks my root directly in Developer Options. All good and beautiful, I installed it all. The only major issue is that the latest 3 versions of Lineage OS for M8 have the problem with stability. More specifically after blocking the screen / screen off, in 50% of situations, my phone is restarted or shuts down. Or if I leave it on the desk in the sleep it starts randomly to restart. I noticed that this phenomenon only happens when the screen is closed. If you keep it open 2 hours or if you load it does not make any phases.

    I have a samsung galaxy note 2 N7100 and I do not know if I go to Lineage OS. I've seen a lot of videos like Lineage OS on N7100 (version of android 7.1.1)
    I did not see anything about the N7100 on their site, I saw other models (N7105 etc) that were all samsung galaxy 2 notes but they had 4G. And I heard it's a disadvantage: S-Pen does not work (on next to other disadvantages)

  9. Hi Cristi, could you make a tutorial about the PROJECT function on your Oneplus 3?

  10. A tutorial related to openGapps would be useful. I notice that 4 is the 7 version of 9 versions of many XNUMX packages.

    Hello Cristi, I want to install Lineage OS on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 NEO N7505, but at the developer option I do not have the OEM UNLOCK option, I only have USB DEBUGGING and I can not unlock the bootloader. You can do a tutorial with other methods to unlock the bootloader! Thank you!

  14. I do not have a sim signal on 3 galaxy notes with this inscrutable rum. Can anything be done to get the signal back? Thank you!

  15. Hello. Very good tutorial. Only a small addition, if possible.
    I had problems installing Gapps, the Stock version. Upon flashing, I received "Error 70". The simplest solution (for a beginner like me) was to take a smaller version to install. For me (OnePlusOne phone) the Nano version worked without problems. I found on the internet that quite a few users had this problem, it is said that the space allocated to the system is to blame (not the storage space), and maybe it would be a good idea to do a tutorial with this "error 70", if you have time. There were other solutions, but they did not inspire confidence.
    As a parenthesis, I made a mistake, inadvertently, when I downloaded Gapps. I mention here that others will not repeat it and have to reinstall everything again. From the phone, I went to the site, and this site immediately recognizes the processor architecture (ARM or ARM64), but also the type of Android, for my 5.1. Without checking I downloaded Gapps 5.1 and of course it is not compatible with Lineage 7.1. So I had to download the correct version and reinstall it all again, here was the 70 error, for the Gapps stock version, but as I said above with the Nano version, everything went perfectly.
    Spore to flash-forget! and very successful boys from
