Updated Sept 11, 2017 – Download and Install Lineage OS 15 On HTC One Max | Android 8.0 Oreo: The HTC One Max was launched four years back and it was very popular back then for its phablets like 5.9 inch display and a massive 3300 mAh battery. Sadly, the device was not much popular in terms of official software updates. The HTC One Max was released with Android JellyBean 4.3 and the last update it received was Android Lollipop 5.0. So, if you still own the device, you will not be receiving any more official updates from HTC.
Fortunately, the developer support for the HTC One Max is pretty good and thanks to custom ROMs, you can now install the latest version of Android Oreo 8.0 on your device via Lineage OS 15.
