With the recent official announcement of LineAOS 17.1, those with the original Google Pixel or Nexus 6 can now get their fix of third party ROMs based on Android 10.
(07/03 Update): In another month, another set of devices to add support for LineAges 17.1. We’ve seen a flurry of Motorola and Xiaomi devices back in June gaining support for the most popular third-party ROMs but now we only have the opportunity to add handsets in July.
The latest additions are the Xiaomi Mi A1 and the Samsung Galaxy J7 2015 (via XDA). We’re not sure how popular any of these additions might be, but you can get some Android 10 functionality on your device.
One downside to this is that support for Realm3 Pro has been removed, although it doesn’t support LinuxAs 17.1 – only LinuxAs16 It is not clear at this stage whether it will be back in future updates. So here is the list of updated updates:
- Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015)
- Xiaomi Mi A1
- Realm 3 Pro (Moved)
(06-10 Update): Some more handsets can now sideload the LineAges 17.1 and get a taste of the “officially” added Android 10 added to the list of supported devices (via Android Police). Some of the new recruits are a throwback to the days of Android’s Nougat and Orio, a compliment to the people behind LineAOS.
The most notable new additions are the OnePlus 2 and the original Moto G – probably the first “great” affordable Android. However, the updated list is here:
- Play Moto G4
- Moto X Play
- Moto G3 Turbo
- Moto G 2015
- Moto E 2015
- OnePlus 2
- Redmi Note 5 Pro
- Xiaomi Redmi 7
- Lenovo P2
(06/01 Update): You may be aware of recent attacks on Linnaeus OS servers, which means that certain builds were understandably delayed. Any device added below will return a code 500 “Internal Server Error” (via XDA-Developers). However, it looks like the builds will now come back with a few new supported hardware pieces. Here is the updated list:
- Necessary phone
- Motorola Moto X (2014)
- Samsung Galaxy A3
- Samsung Galaxy A5
- Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Duos
- Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo
- Wilfax Swift
- Xiaomi Mi A2
- Xiaomi Mi6X
- Xiaomi Mi Note 3
- Xiaomi Redmi 2
- Xiaomi Redmi 7
- Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro
- Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro
- Xiaomi Redmi Note 7
(Update 05/14): Looks like OnePlus 7 (‘non-Pro’ model) is now getting support for LineAOS 1.1.1 builds – although no builds seem to be available yet. It has not yet been announced in the party’s official subreddy, but is expected to see some updates in the coming days.
(Update 04/21): There are a few more devices supported by LineAOS 17.1 according to the official Linux GitHub, including the Sony Xperia XA2 Plus, and there are some weird and great budget phones around the world (via Android Police). Here is a list of updated devices:
- Yandex Phone
- Leico Le Max 2
- BQ Aquarius X.
- BQ Aquarius X Pro
- Nubia Z17
(Update 04/15): Lineage 17.1 support is now available for the Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 + and Note 9 after it was officially confirmed by the LineAJOS team in an announcement post on Reddit. Downloads will not be available until at least April 15, but may face delays as preparations are still ongoing before full release.
The FYI Samsung Galaxy S9 (Starlet), S9 + (Sterility) and Note 9 (Crownlet) have been added to the roster of the official lineage OS 17.1 as you can see in this merged committee in this lineAios Gerrit Code Review.
All 3 have Samsung Exynos 9810 SC. See the LinesAges wiki links above for information on the correct models supported:
- S9 Starlet SM-G960F, SM-G960F / DS and SM-G960N
- S9 + Star 2lte SM-G965F, SM-G965F / DS and SM-G965N
- Note 9 Crownlet SM-N960F, SM-N960F / DS and SM-N960N
Downloads should be available on 2020-04-15 if all goes well with LinuxOS Automated Builder
Given that we’ve seen a whole slew of handsets technically get support for the official Android 10 build, if you have the original Pixel or even the big boy Nexus 6, you can join the lineage and fix your update. Support was confirmed by an official announcement on the / r / lineageOS subreditite, the builds will appear at some point today – for those who want to install.
The good news is, both the Google Pixel Selfish and the Google Pixel XL Marlin can be found in this merged patch. Get LinuxOS 17.1: Hudson: Upgrade Marlin / Selfish to 17.1.
Both are already in the line of lineAJS automakers in Qatar: Marlin 20200409 and Selfish 20200409.
If the building process is all right, the downloads should be available tomorrow at https://download.lineageos.org/

LineageOS 17.1 includes a ton of new features that are brand new for updated ROMs that include refreshed partial screenshot UI, support for in-display fingerprint readers, Emoji 12.0, an AOSP themepicker and tons more.
Considering that support for Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL has now officially stopped in 201’s, LineAOS could be a tough alternative update path for those still stuck with previous flashships. In their case, including the 2014 Nexus ones, you might think that this version of the Android phone was only officially updated to Android 1.1.1 Nougat. Jumping to Android 10 from there is enough, but it would definitely be welcome to hold on for a long time.
To download LineAges 17.1 on your Google Pixel or Nexus 6, you can follow the download and installation instructions here.
