Very few people know about how to properly root a device and what all are the software used while rooting such that you don’t lose data or damage your device. People who know how to root must know this fact that once you root your device, you lose the warranty and any damage caused to your device is not covered by the company. There are some worst-case scenarios such as when your device gets bricked and you have no option but to change the device. Cyanogen was one of the most famous mods used for rooting but after it was discontinued, LineageOS came into the picture and took over the mantle of being most used for rooting devices.
LineageOS is one of the best available custom ROMs which is free, community built and aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7 Nougat OS. It is designed specially to increase the performance and reliability over your stock Android OS of the device which you use.
LineageOS is often termed as the “rebirth of Cyanogen Mod” as both of these custom ROMs are almost identical. LineageOS is based on Android Open Source Project with some extra contribution from technicians of Android Community. This custom ROM can easily be used without you needing any Google application installed on your device. LineageOS will change the completion of your device for the good and give you exciting features which wouldn’t be available in your stock Android OS.
