LineageOS is one of the most popular custom ROMs out there. If you are an active member of the XDA Forums or you’re familiar with the third-party development scene, you would have heard about LineageOS. Available for a plethora of devices, LineageOS 18.1 brings Android 11 to both older and newer phones, and now, a few more devices have been added to the list — Samsung Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, Xiaomi Mi 10T, and the Poco F2 Pro AKA the Redmi K30 Pro.
If you have any of these devices and you’re not a fan of the stock interface, you can now add a fresh coat of paint to your phone with LineageOS 18.1. It’s fast, snappy, doesn’t have any sort of bloatware/pre-installed apps, and you get regular updates. You can get the latest build of LineageOS for these devices by following the Wiki links below:
|Device||Codename and Wiki Link||Maintainer(s)|
|Galaxy S10 5G||beyondx||Linux4|
|Galaxy Note 10||d1||Linux4|
|Galaxy Note 10+||d2s||Linux4|
|Galaxy Note 10+ 5G||d2x||Linux4|

The wiki link next to each phone’s model will take you to a page that has the download link as well as instructions to install. Needless to say, you will need an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery like TWRP to install LineageOS 18.1 on your device. The installation process varies for every device, so make sure you follow the correct instructions. You will also need a gapps package to flash along with LineageOS since the ROM doesn’t come with Google services pre-installed.
