LineageOS is the go-to custom ROM for those whose devices have been long forgotten by manufacturers. LineageOS 15.1, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo, adds a lot of customization to the stock Android Oreo experience while maintaining stability for a wide range of devices. Today, the team is rolling out official builds for the OnePlus One, Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus (+Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A), and Oppo Find 7/Find 7A.
The OnePlus One is one of the most active models running the custom ROM as 62,099 OnePlus One devices are running LineageOS according to the official statistics. The older Samsung Galaxy and the OPO’s twin brother, the Oppo Find 7/7A, are also quite popular. You can download official LineageOS 15.1 for mentioned devices from the links below.

Fortunately, the LineageOS team publishes installation instructions that you can easily follow. You can also check out our forums for these devices where you’ll usually find the support thread for the ROM. You’ll also find plenty of other ROMs, kernels, modifications… to put it in simply, almost everything for your flashing needs.
LineageOS always keeps improving by adding new features. Just recently they announced Trust, an interface to help users take control of their security and privacy. You can find more information about it here.
