LineageOS can easily be titled the holy grail of custom ROMs. Throughout the year, we have seen the list of officially supported LineageOS 17.1 devices grow. Moreover, many developers take advantage of the open-source nature of the project and unofficially bring the goodness of vanilla Android with LineageOS specific tweaks to various devices from different manufacturers.
ASUS’ 2020 gaming flagship, the ROG Phone 3, is packed to the brim with features. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chipset, a 144Hz high refresh rate AMOLED display panel, a 6,000mAh battery, two USB-C ports, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM as well as 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The unofficial LineageOS 17.1 build for the ROG Phone 3 was developed by XDA Senior Member aleasto.
The first updates to the release fixed bugs with the vibration motor and time keeping without internet, but there are lingering issues with the fingerprint sensor, VoLTE, and a number of display enhancements that are being investigated. Still, we are surprised by how much already works.
