Official LineageOS 15.1 is out for Nexus 6 – Android 8.1 Oreo
LineageOS 15.1 has hit the base with some devices receiving the OS based on Android 8.1 base. Although none of the LineageOS developers is dedicated staffers, the OS came into existence in relatively less time compared to previous updates.
With regards to custom Android ROMs, there is a flood of them available to download, which are developed by the nervy tablet tinkerers. LineageOS is maybe a standout operating system amongst the most well known, and for some obvious reasons.
The recently available LineageOS 15.1 is very much the same and is based on Android 8.1 Oreo, the individuals who introduce it can make certain that they are not just getting the absolute best that LineageOS brings to the table yet, in addition, the best that Google has in its locker, as well.
Recently, the LineageOS team had published a blog confirming Oreo transition of the LineageOS. The LineageOS team had mentioned the work they had to go through. They cleaned up all the previous codes and removed all the references to CyanogenMod. The transformation is evident from the fact that the team has kept Oreo 8.1 as it’s base instead of 8.0.
After a long wait, last month LineageOS team announced LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1 Oreo)for few devices, but over the time more devices added to the list. Recently LineageOS team released LineageOS 15.1 for Nexus 6, official builds are posted on LineageOS website.
The major update in LineageOS 15.1 is about its launcher, Trebuchet, which has been the character of the OS. Trebuchet now supports third-party icon packs and adapts to the new icon sets easily. It also has removed all the unnecessary features. Like there are third party launchers available, which allowed changes in the shape of the icons alongside size as well.
The major shot in the arm came from the improvements in the custom accent colors and UI color interchangeability from light to dark mode, something which Google has been contemplating for long. Do you want LineageOS to change your theme based on the wallpaper? Well, the “Automatic” feature does exactly the same.
