Lineage OS has been the hottest thing in the world of custom ROMs over the past few months. Hardly a day goes by without some new ROM for a device coming out, or some sort of a news related to Lineage. A month ago, we reported that the number of Lineage users had crossed 500,000. Today, this number has doubled to over 10,000,000 as Lineage OS has now crossed over a million downloads.
This is a big feat for Lineage which has been around for less than three whole months. The number of users are growing with every passing day and good things seem to be in store for the future. There have been many updates and upgrades made for the users. Statistics from the official website show that the device with the most number of active Lineage OS installs is OnePlus One. This is followed by the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, Samsung Galaxy S III and Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3.
In what could be best expressed as an anti-climax of a drama on a Christmas eve, Cyanogen Inc, the creators of the CyanogenMod decided to shut shop and went out of business. However the announcement that followed was what made the Christmas season a little more merrier for users of custom ROMs – Lineage OS was born. Lineage is actually a continuation of where CyanogenMod was left. It consists of many people who worked on the original CyanogenMod.
