It is an unofficial build of LineageOS with users currently experiencing some issues installing Google apps.
Unofficial LineageOS 17.0 for the HTC 10: Launched back in 2016, HTC 10 was one of the company’s last few popular devices.

If you still have an HTC 10 lying around and want to upgrade it to the latest version of Android, this Unofficial LineageOS 17 build should do the job. Do note that since this is a beta build, you might encounter some unwanted bugs.

In case you’re still rocking this beast of a phone, try out Android 10 on it with this unofficial build of LineageOS 17. This build works with both the single and dual SIM variants of the device.
Unofficial LineageOS 17.0 for the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: Another smartphone from the same era as the HTC One M8, the Xperia Z3 Compact offered users a flagship experience in a very compact form factor.
