LineageOS is the open-source ROM and the successor to the ever-popular ROM, Cyanogenmod. LineageOS ROM came into existence when the company behind the open-source project, Cyanogen Inc. decided to pull the shutter on the project. The developers behind the project migrated to the new project with a different name. Just like Cyanogenmod, LineageOS has also been very popular among the Android fans. There have been many exciting features that have been added to LineageOS ever since the ROM first debuted in the month of January. Since then, the developers have not looked back and now there are 15 more devices that are supported by LineageOS in the latest nightly.
