LineageOS 17.1 is already with us, being the first stable Lineage ROM based on Android 10, with Pixel improvements and much more.

Although ROMs nowadays seem to have lost some popularity, they are still of great importance in avoiding obsolescence as much as possible and that outdated mobiles enjoy a second life. And Lineage OS 17.1 brings Android 10 to various mobiles.

Among all the ROMs, Lineage OS stands out for being the best due to its great continuity and device support. One more year, we have a new version of Android loaded with news.

Lineage OS 17.1 is official: all the news of the best Android ROM

The arrival of LineageOS 17, the version number that would correspond to Android 10, has taken several months to officially arrive. Although it is true that from practically the first weeks of the launch of Android 10 there were already versions of Lineage OS 17, they were nightly versions , in the development phase. It was not until a few hours ago that the team announced the first official version.

This decision-making is based on the philosophy of the Lineage OS team since the times of Cyanogenmod, and that is that they prefer to take the time it takes to make a stable version and ensure that the code is in optimal conditions at the quality level.

Another curiosity is that the first stable version has been named LineageOS 17.1, skipping 17 simply. This is because it not only includes the Android 10 code, but they have been incorporating the code that Google added in its feature drops .
