How to install LineageOS 15.1 on the Razer Phone

Google’s work that was done to create Project Treble has helped to rejuvenate the custom ROM community. Some devices that could take weeks to get working AOSP-based ROMs can run such custom ROM with a lot less effort. XDA Recognized and Social Contributor linuxct has been tinkering with Generic System Images on the Razer Phone since the Android Oreo Developer Preview was made available to the public. With some effort and help from the community, linuxct was able to install Android 8.1 Oreo-based LineageOS 15.1 onto the device. To give back to the community they have created a step by step guide that walks you through the entire process of installing LineageOS 15.1 from start to finish.

If you’re curious about what features the custom ROM has to offer, then check out our previous article that goes in-depth with the list of features. There’s a lot that the ROM brings to the table, especially since the device’s software is fairly close to stock Android without all the bells and whistles you might find in other OEM devices.

Initially, there were some bugs that caused various features to not work (including 4G LTE and audio output during phone calls) but these have since been fixed. Check out the guide below to learn more if you want to install a custom ROM on your device! Since the Razer Phone is Treble-compatible, that means you can also follow the guide to install Resurrection Remix or pure AOSP as well, as explained in the guide below.
