LineageOS gets new update with September Security Patch, new Updater app, and more
LineageOS is the latest sensation among custom rom lovers and developers. We already know that the Lineage OS is a continuation of what CyanogenMod was, the LineageOS 14.1 is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Now, the Lineage community has added some interesting new features to the custom rom including a new Updater app which fixes the downloading update issue, new system profiles tile, HTML 5 features support, and September security patches.


September Security Patch brings along the fix for the critical BlueBorne Bluetooth attack. The BlueBorne vulnerability was discovered only recently. It’s a Bluetooth vulnerability that leaves Android devices open to a potential takeover by hackers. The vulnerability is also present in Windows, Linux and some iterations of iOS.

Apart from these features, Lineage has also added carrier selection shortcut for Settings app, Email application, and Burn-in protection.

Lineage also announced that the Lineage OS 15 based on Android 8.0 Ore is in the works.

"While the cm-14.1 branch development hasn’t stopped, we’re also working on the next LineageOS version (15.0), based on the latest Android 8.0. We will refrain from giving any ETA, just patiently wait until the new branch is ready for release-time."
