For all developers, Samsung appears to be an annoying brand as most of the time they don’t release the firmware related information of their device. The fresh news is that from the side of an XDA developer an unofficial version of the Lineage OS 14.1 is released for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Unofficial Lineage OS 14.1 is specifically available for the Exynos version of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

For the Exynos versions of the Samsung devices custom ROM’s are hardly available. Even if you recall then old Samsung Galaxy S6-series and the Samsung Galaxy S7-series have officially received the Lineage OS.

The unofficial Lineage OS is based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat and is not entirely stable which indirectly means that you cannot use it in your daily device. If you are a developer type person, then you can surely try it. The download link is present below:
