To flash LineageOS 19 on your device, you’ll have to unlock its bootloader and install a custom recovery like TWRP. If you’re not sure how to do that, you can check out our detailed guides on how to install a custom ROM and how to install TWRP for easy-to-follow instructions. Before you proceed, though, make sure you read through the installation instructions and other linked documentation in the Wiki pages linked above. Also, backup your data before starting the process, or you may lose it during the installation.
Note that LineageOS 19 doesn’t come with Google apps pre-installed. If you wish to use any Google apps or services, you’ll have to flash a compatible GApps package after installing the ROM. Head over to our guide on how to download and install the latest GApps for detailed instructions.
Along with LineageOS 19 builds for the aforementioned devices, the LineageOS team has also released LineageOS 18.1 builds for two Motorola phones — the Moto Z Play and Moto Z2 Play. These devices previously received builds of LineageOS 14.1 (based on Android 7.1) and LineageOS 15.1 (based on Android 8.1), respectively. Now, they’re getting a new lease on life with the latest release.
