In the world of third-party ROMs, LineageOS has become one of the go-to options. Sadly though, the Android 10-based LineageOS 17.1 is now being dropped from the official build roster in favor of LineageOS 19.0.

In an official announcement post over on the /r/LineageOS subreddit, it was confirmed that some 36 devices will cease seeing updates. All of the Android 10-based builds of LineageOS 17.1 are set to be removed from the servers as the team is testing “build systems for support of LineageOS 19” and require extra space on the builds servers.

That doesn’t mean that LineageOS 19.0 is ready, far from it. As the original post even states that this “does not mean that [we] are shipping soon.” We’ll just have to wait a little longer until an official Android 12-based version of LineageOS is ready for primetime. All of this means that LineageOS 17.1 is now in the retirement phase and any devices listed below will now cease to be supported unless ported to more recent Lineage builds:

LineageOS 17.1 has provided a route to Android 10 that many devices would simply never have been able to travel down. While it’s sad that no further updates will arrive for those still running this particular version, it’s worth noting that you’re still able to use the ROM with no issues. You simply won’t receive any further updates as of this announcement.

As of this post going live, the build pages for LineageOS 17.1 are still available but will be “removed from the build servers after a short time.”
