Official LineageOS 17.1 is here for Poco F1, ZenFone 6, OnePlus 3/3T/6/6T/7 Pro & devices from Samsung, Xiaomi, & more

Seasoned Custom ROM users already know a thing or two about LineageOS. For the uninitiated, LineageOS has its history buried deep into CyanogenMod, the custom ROM that became quite popular back in the day for its availability on multiple devices.

When Cyanogen decided to end CyanogenMod support, some of the developers and maintainers behind the project carried on and established what is now known as LineageOS.

Following the inaugural LineageOS 13.0, the team has never looked back and today, they’ve blessed the custom ROM family with the official release of LineageOS 17.1 update based on the latest Android 10 operating system.

PiunikaWeb readers must have already bumped into one or two LineageOS 17.1 posts on here. However, there was nothing official about them. But with the latest arrival, you get the official release, which, unlike the unofficial version, includes regular OTA updates.

The initial list of devices that are getting the official LineageOS 17.1 update has also been provided by the team. As expected, it’s pretty vast even for a start and is expected to get even bigger with time. But first, below is a summary of what LOS 17.1 brings forth.

  • A new partial screenshot UI was implemented that lets you hand select smaller parts of your screen and edit the screenshots. So, feel free to go give it a “shot”!
  • We know many of you have been waiting for news on themes since the CyanogenMod Theme Engine’s deprecation in CyanogenMod 13.0, and those of you in this boat are in for a treat!
    • AOSP’s new ThemePicker app was adapted to have the range of accents you’ve become used to with our old implementation, Styles.
    • We also opted to enable support for font change, icon shape (both QuickSettings and Launcher) and icon style changes (eg. changing the style of the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth icons).
  • Trebuchet has long been able to hide apps from the Launcher and protect them with a passcode/password, but now you can also use your biometric sensor to authenticate as well!
  • October, November, December 2019 and January, February, March 2020 security patches have been merged.
    • Builds are currently based on the android-10.0.0_r31 tag, which is the Pixel 4/4 XL’s tag.
  • Wi-Fi display is available once again.
  • Support for on-screen fingerprint sensors (FOD) has been added.
  • Support for pop-up and rotating cameras has been added.
  • Support for Australian English, Lithuanian, Latvian, Dutch, Romanian, Slovenian, Serbian and Turkish spell checking has been added to AOSP keyboard.
  • AOSP keyboard available emojis have been updated to Emoji 12.0.
  • WebView has been updated to Chromium 80.0.3987.132.
