The development of OnePlus 5 has already begun ever since the custom TWRP recovery first showed up. We have already posted multiple posts regarding the unlocking of the bootloader, rooting, and installing TWRP on the OnePlus 5. Today, the first Lineage OS 14.1 build for OnePlus 5 is now available for download. Being an unofficial build, it can be treated as Beat ROM. Hence, the LOS nightly ROM listed below may come with some bugs. With further development, you will see an official nightly ROM as well.
Thanks to koenkk, we now have our first Lineage OS 14.1 ROM Nighty build based on the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat for the stunning OnePlus 5.
