Installing a ROM is one of the most effective ways to breathe new life into an old terminal, or to revitalize a relatively recent one with fresh air. Among all ROMs, LineageOS is probably the most popular and with a list of supported models that doesn’t stop growing. The last to join are the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, the Nexus 7 and the Moto Z3 Play.
These three terminals can now get Android 10 from LineageOS, which in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite comes as an alternative to yours, based on One UI. The most extreme case is the Nexus 7, which was launched with Android 4.3 in 2013 and its last update was to Lollipop 5.1.1.
Android 10 for Nexus 7 from 2013
LineageOS 17.1, the version based on Android 10, has added official support for three new devices: a recent one, one from the near past, and a third from the distant past: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, the Moto Z3 Play and the Nexus 7 from 2013.
That is, the owners of one of these three terminals can go to the official Wiki of each of them on the LineageOS website and download and install firmware, updating to a recent version of Android or alternative to the official one. Here are the links to the Wiki for each device:
The Samsung Galazy Tab S6 Lite already received Android 10 officially, so this ROM is an alternative with a different layer and applications. He Moto Z3 Play It was released in 2018 with Oreo, although it later received the update to Android 9 Pie, so this ROM is an opportunity to update the system beyond the official support provided by Motorola.
Even more extreme is the case of Nexus 7, which was released in 2013 with Android 4.3 and was eventually updated to Android 5.1.1. It is not as spectacular a jump as that of the Samsung Galaxy S2 with Android 11 we saw yesterday, although it is still a real feat. Of course, with 1 GB of RAM and a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, another thing will be the performance.
