The F(x)tec Pro1 gets official LineageOS 17.1 support

London-based startup F(x)tec launched the Pro1 back in September last year. At launch, the device ran a near-stock version of Android 9.0 Pie with just a couple of additional apps that had been optimized to work with its physical keyboard. But the company had also sent devices to developers from LineageOS and SailfishOS to speed up third-party development for the device. As a result, the device received official LineageOS 16 support earlier this year in July. And now, the LineageOS team has officially extended LineageOS 17.1 support for the F(x)tec Pro1.

As per the updated LineageOS build targets on the project’s GitHub page, the team has officially added LineageOS 17.1 (based on Android 10) support for the F(x)tec Pro1. Although the LineageOS 17.1 build for the device wasn’t live at the time of writing, it should be available for download on the device’s Wiki in the next couple of days.

If you’re interested in trying LineageOS 17.1 on your F(x)tec Pro1, you can download the recovery flashable package by clicking on “Get the builds here” on the device’s Wiki page (linked below). But before you go ahead and flash the ROM on your device, make sure you read the installation instructions and other linked documentation, including the guides and special boot modes. Also, make sure to take a backup of your data before you start the process or you may lose it during the installation.
