Lineage OS 15.1 for OnePlus One based on Android 8.1 Oreo now available

Lineage OS 15.1 is the next big thing when it comes to custom ROMs. The LineageOS Project developers have announced recently that they may very well jump from official Lineage OS 14.1 to Lineage OS 15.1 ROM nightly builds. So the LOS 15 may never be a thing for most of the Android phones. We are already seeing Lineage OS 15.1 builds for several devices from Samsung, OnePlus, YU, Google Nexus, etc. The latest device to receive the Lineage OS 15.1 ROM is the OnePlus One.

Yes, you can now update OnePlus One to latest Android 8.1 Oreo. This is a big deal as the OnePlus One phones may never see Oxygen OS 5.0 Oreo update. Recently, we published an article reporting AOSP Android 8.1 Oreo build for the OnePlus One. Now, we are seeing Lineage OS 15.1 for OnePlus One. It has most of the things working including WiFi, RIL (network, data, etc.). It also features the latest December 2017 Security Patch.

As it is Lineage OS, of course, you get support for Substratum Theme engine by default. However, your Android device needs to be rooted. You can achieve that using the latest Magisk 15+. Being a custom ROM, it comes with a few Pixel 2 mods like audio, user interface, etc. Other than that, you get to see the Lineage OS 15.0 8.0 Oreo features as well developed for OnePlus One. The full update log is listed below.

The device will also receive the official Lineage nightly builds. The OnePlus One can be termed as the most developer friendly device as it has the best custom ROM builds. Today, we are seeing the first build of unofficial Lineage OS 15.1 for OnePlus One.
