Several years ago, some former employees of Cyanogen Inc., after the company left CyanogenMod, decided to go solo creating LineageOS. Since then, million users have joined it, making it one of the most famous Android ROMs. Periodically, updates are arriving that, on the one hand, bring compatibility with new versions of Android and, on the other, eliminate support for the previous ones.

In March 2019, he landed LineageOS 16.0 based on Android 9 Pie, and a year later, in April 2020, we witnessed the arrival of LineageOS 17.1 based on Android 10. Now that it is about to be a year from then, LineageOS prepares to make the leap to Android 11 cleaning up: removes support for Android 9 Pie and leaves 24 devices out.

One of the most popular custom ROMs out there today, LineageOS, owes a large part of its success to maintaining compatibility for many devices for quite some time. Builds based on Android 9 Pie are available, as we said, since 2019, and now that many devices have been updated to LineageOS 17.1 (and with Android 11 support dropping), support for Android 9 Pie is ending.

New code from the LineageOS build server reveals that no more builds will occur for LineageOS 16.0 devices, which means that devices that cannot be updated to 17.1 (Android 10) will no longer receive updates, including security patches.

The full list of affected phones and tablets is as follows:

In total, as we see, 24 devices will no longer be supported. Most of them are old models, but of course, that is precisely one of the virtues of ROMs: keeping old mobiles alive that are no longer updated.
