Lineage OS Just Hit 1 Million Users With OnePlus One Leading in Downloads


LineageOS, the project sprung from the death of CyanogenMod late last year, now has more than one million users (1,056,003 to be exact). The community-driven ROM provides a near-stock Android experience and it’s receiving support for more devices all the time: it has doubled its usage numbers in the last month alone.

OnePlus One is currently the most popular device when it comes to the number of installs, which stands at 69,599. The second most popular device running LineageOS is the Samsung Galaxy S3, released in 2012. The international model of the Galaxy S3, I9300, was listed as the fourth most active smartphone model last month.

The OnePlus 3/3T occupy the third spot with 40,065 downloads. OnePlus lets users root or unlock their device’s bootloader (necessary to run custom ROMs) without voiding your device warranty, this could be the reason their devices dominate the top spots.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, maintains drops from the second place (last month) as the most popular device, to fourth with 39,341 downloads. Other devices on the top-ten list include:

Samsung Galaxy S5 – 31,768

Xiaomi Mi5 – 29,716

Nexus 5 – 26,711

Moto G (third generation) –  24,674

Moto G (second generation) – 21,644

Moto G (fourth generation) – 21,308
