An unofficial Lineage OS 18 is now available for the LG V40 ThinQ (codename: judypn). LG V40 ThinQ is a 2 year old device now which was launched in 2018 with Android Oreo 8.1 later but thanks to the Lineage os 18, users can taste the latest Android 11 on the device.
We would like to thank the developer/uploader SGCMarkus for the ROM. You can follow our guide to Download and Install LineageOS 18 for LG V40 ThinQ (Android 11).
The ROM is still in its initial stage so there may be some bugs currently present in the ROM so we recommend our readers not to flash the ROM on their primary device. The developers are working hard to fix all the available bugs and we are very sure that in upcoming updates, everything will be fixed and the ROM can be used as a daily driver.
