LineageOS adds more devices and makes some needed improvements

Although it has only been a few months since its launch, LineageOS has been made available on over 80 devices and even reached a milestone last month with over a million installations. As always, the team has been keeping busy, with continued expansion to new devices, and making minor tweaks that yield crucial improvements.

Since the top of the month, the N branch has been merged to Android 7.1.2 and will also include the latest security patch from Google. While there weren't many changes, an issue has been fixed that was causing unnecessary battery drain. The list of changes can be found below.

  • Fixed Extra Tiles issues leading to increased battery usage problems
  • Many minor bugfixes
  • Website and wiki are now using https by default
  • April fools (VoLTE and Br0zip) are now gone
