LineageOS reaches over a million installations, adds more devices to its roster

After the collapse of Cyanogen, LineageOS rose from its ashes to create a new community and alternative Android OS. For the past several months, the team has been busy, releasing builds for an immense amount of devices. Now, it has been revealed that the team has hit a milestone with over one million installations.

To be clear, the team did state that this doesn't necessarily mean that LineageOS has been installed on over a million devices, but that the OS itself has been installed over a million times.

In addition to the announcement, it was revealed that there would be some updates to the OS which are listed below.

  • Contacts can now be stored locally regardless of whether a contacts provider exists (contact-local-storage)
  • Custom QuickSettings tiles are back! (tiles) Initial tiles are as follows:
  • Caffeine
  • USB Tether
  • Sync
  • Battery saver
  • Ambient display
  • Heads Up
  • Volume Panel
  • ADB over Network
  • March security patches (r25) have been merged

Per usual, devices have been added to the 14.1 roster like the international and Verizon variants of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the international version of the LG G5, and the LG V20 for T-Mobile. As for 13.0 devices, you'll be looking at mainly Motorola handsets with the Droid 4, Droid RAZR, Droid Bionic, and Photon Q.
