There's now a new way to get buggy updates for your OnePlus 7T

OnePlus software tends to be among the best for Android devices. Its update process ... not so much, at least as of late. The OnePlus 7T, for example, had to wait half a year to get its Android 11 update, and some carrier variants took even longer. If you want to try out a new flavor of Android on your OnePlus 7T, now you can: there's an official build of the LineageOS custom ROM available for it.

The OnePlus 6 and 6T just got Android 11 from LineageOS before OnePlus itself

We've all had a phone reach a premature death, running out of software updates well before the device is actually too slow to be used. Thankfully, the custom ROM community helps keep your old gadgets alive, and there's no better ROM out right now than LineageOS. The open-source project brought Android 11 to nearly 60 phones earlier this month, and two more are about to be added to the list.

LineageOS ends Android 9 Pie support, cutting off 24 phones and tablets

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM around, not only because it brings a stock-like experience to phones and tablets, but also because it has kept many devices supported long after the manufacturer dropped support. The project has offered builds based on Android 9 Pie since early 2019, and now that many devices have been updated to LineageOS 17.1 (and with Android 11 support coming soon), support for Pie is ending.

LineageOS brings Android 10 to the Nextbit Robin, Moto G5, and more

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM around, as it has extended the life of many phones and tablets that would have otherwise been abandoned. Even for phones still receiving software updates from the original manufacturer, Lineage can sometimes work better than the stock software, and it's a popular option for 'de-Googling' Android devices.
