One of the most popular Custom Rom called Cyanogenmod was shut down and was converted to a new ROM called the Lineage OS. Fortunately, Lineage OS is available for some devices no matter to which brand the device belongs.
Also, it is available for way old handsets that are no more receiving official updates from the respective brands. Recently a new device is added to their list known as the Samsung Galaxy S5, let’s check out what this update brings to the phone.
We have good news for the Galaxy S5 users; we know that official support for this device is no more effective, but the valuable information is that with the help of Lineage OS 15 ROM you can easily get the flavor of Android 8.0 Oreo on your old device.
It is evident that this device will not receive Samsung’s Oreo update officially, but by installing Lineage OS 15 ROM, a user can enjoy Android 8.0 Oreo. If you want it on your device, then the downloading links of the ROM are given down below.
This ROM brings new status bar features, PIP mode, Split Screen mode and some new things which previously were not possible.
The ROM development for Samsung devices is slow as Samsung hardly release the kernel sources of their devices due to which the developers had to spend a lot of time in developing them. But it seems to be a good step from the developers of Lineage OS as they are working on ROM that can be installed in old devices, earlier getting an experience near to stable is not possible. For more updates stay tuned.
