To install LineageOS 19 on these devices, you’ll have to unlock the bootloader and install a custom recovery like TWRP. If you’re not sure how to go about that, you can follow the steps provided in our how to install a custom ROM and how to install TWRP guides. Once you’re done with that, follow the installation instructions highlighted in the LineageOS Wiki for your device to flash the custom ROM.

Make sure to back up your data before unlocking the bootloader, or you will lose it during the process. Also, note that LineageOS 19 does not come with Google apps pre-installed. You’ll have to flash a suitable GApps package after installing the ROM if you want to use any Google apps or services. Follow the steps provided in our how to download and install the latest GApps guide to flash a GApps package on your device.
