Before you go ahead and try to install the ROM, make sure your phone’s bootloader is unlocked.  You’ll also need a custom recovery link TWRP installed. You can refer to our guide on how to successfully replace your stock recovery with TWRP. LineageOS 18.1 doesn’t come pre-installed with Google Apps so you’ll have to flash an appropriate GApps package right after installing the ROM. If you’re not sure which GApps package to choose, our guide has you covered. Last but not least, it’s always a good idea to take a full backup of your important data beforehand.

In related news, LineageOS has dropped support for the ASUS ROG Phone 2 and ZenFone 6. These phones won’t see any further development or updates.

LineageOS 18.1 offers a clean, near-stock software experience. In addition to the usual Android 11 features like Conversation Notifications, Chat Bubbles, smart device controls, the custom ROM also includes some useful enhancements of its own. The main highlights include a built-in backup tool, the ability to customize the status bar and lock screen, clock/battery styles, network traffic monitor, and so on.
