Many OnePlus 2 users have felt depressed due to the lack of OTA updates that OnePlus has rolled out. For a The owners were told that the OnePlus 2 would be going to receive the official Android 7.0 Nougat update, but until now the latest official build of OxygenOS for this phone still stops at Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Although there is still a big community supporting for OnePlus 2, thankfully, developers have just rolled out an unofficial build of LineageOS 15 custom ROM based on Android 8.0 Oreo for the device.
In case OnePlus is not able to continue providing support, there are still members of the community to fill the gaps. Although there are not the official builds of LineageOS 15 for any device right now, developers are building ROMs based on Android 8.0 Oreo for a number of supported devices.
The latest taste of Android Oreo with LineageOS 15 custom ROM is the OnePlus 2, and this build is created by an XDA Recognized Contributor, named Shreesha.Murthy (also the entire LineageOS team). This first build was made available yesterday and now it has been updated to revision 3. Since these early builds are still in beta, so there are some bugs happening with the device. But a lot of stuff does work well in this build, including RIL, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, hotspot, GPS, fingerprint scanner, VoLTE, and the sensors and other features of Android Oreo.
However, there are still some things that temporarily do not work and are being debugged that includes the camera, alert slider, offline gestures, and a few features. As it’s is the initial builds, so it’s impossible for a developer to realize all of the current bugs. So if you see any problem, you can then report it (and include logs) in the link from here. There also includes steps to flash the Android 8.0 ROM for your OnePlus 2.
