LineageOS 17.1 adds support for the OnePlus 5/5T, and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e LTE

The LineageOS team has extended LineageOS 17.1 support to several devices since debuting the ROM earlier this year in April. Over the last month, devices like the Redmi K20/Xiaomi Mi 9T, Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, Nokia 6.1, and F(x)tec Pro 1 received support for the Android 10-based custom ROM. Since our previous coverage, the team has added support for three more devices.

The following devices have received official support for LineageOS 17.1 based on Android: OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e LTE. Along with these devices, the team has added LineageOS 16.0 support for the Fairphone 3. If you’d like to give LineageOS a shot on any of these devices, you can now download the recovery flashable package by clicking on “Get the builds here” on their respective Wiki pages (linked below).

Before you go ahead and flash LineageOS 17.1 on your device though, make sure you read through the installation instructions and other linked documentation in the Wiki pages. Also, take a backup of your data before starting the process or you may lose it during the installation.

It’s worth noting that the team has also started work on LineageOS 18.0 based on Android 11. An experimental GSI build of LineageOS 18.0 is already available for download on our forums. If you’re interested in trying the latest flavor of LineageOS, you can follow this link to download the GSI build and then follow our GSI installation guide to get it up and running on your device.
