Samsung Galaxy S6 Android 10 update with April security patch arrives as unofficial LineageOS 17.1; Realme X gets it too

The best thing about the Android operating system is the fact that it is open source in nature, giving a free license to the developers to develop custom ROMs around the OS.

Now if you are into rooting and flashing custom ROMs, you do not need an introduction to LineageOS. For those who do not know, LineageOS is one of the most popular custom ROMs based on Android OS. You can install it and experience the latest Android OS on your device, even if they are not eligible, officially.

Moreover, LineageOS’s latest version LineageOS 17.1 is out officially, but it is yet to extend its support for a lot of devices. However, it is unofficially available for tons of devices.

And one of those devices, Samsung Galaxy S6, which was launched way back in March 2015, is getting the latest April 2020 security patchset based on Android 10. The update is available on the unofficial LineageOS 17.1 version lineage-17.1-20200413-UNOFFICIAL-zerofltexx.
