Lineage OS surpasses 1 million active installs, with OnePlus One leading the charge

Late last year the world officially said goodbye to CyanogenMod when its parent company, Cyanogen Inc., shut down operations. But in its wake came Lineage OS, a rebranding of the same core OS carried on by the CM community.

Despite the setback, the movement appears to be back on track. Just under 3 months later, there have been over 1 million active downloads across all the different builds, according to the project statistics page.

Lineage OS is available for a growing number of devices. Currently, the most popular active build is "bacon" for the OnePlus One, with over 60,000 active installs.

  • LineageOS 14.1 (based on Nougat 7.1.1) works very well for my Nexus 7 2013 32GB - better than it ever did with the final official Google Marshmallow 6.0.1 release (MOB30X). I also upgraded the kernel to FrancoKernel and alternate between performance mode or battery-saver mode as needed. I can't believe that nearly 4 years after it launched the Nexus 7 is still the best affordable tablet option for Android; it arrived with JellyBean 4.3 when I bought it in July 2013. I bought several used ones for my wife, mom, sisters, etc. over the years and they are all still working well and now all run LineageOS 14.1 without an issue.
  • Glad to hear that! I had two Nexus 7 2013 tablets, one of which is dead (power button no longer works) but I hoped to put some fresh life into the other. I'll have to try that out!
  • Is Netflix working for you on your N7? That was the only thing keeping me from switching from CM 14.1 to Lineage. Last I checked many stated Netflix was broken on Lineage. Great user name, btw.
