[Download] Lineage OS 14.1 for LG G4

The LG G4 served as LG’s 2015 flagship and was also one of the few remaining smartphones to offer expandable storage and a removable battery to boot. Under the hood, the G4 featured a 5.5-inch quad HD display, 3GB of RAM, the Snapdragon 808 and of course, the removable 3000mAh battery.

Given the display resolution and the size of the battery, the smartphone was just able to last through a single day of usage. The device shipped with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board. LG may roll out the Nougat update too, but that remains to be confirmed as of yet.

Well, forget LG and try Lineage OS 14.1 which is Nougat based. You’ll be able to customize and tweak the performance of your device to your heart’s content. With the custom ROM, you’ll also be able to squeeze out a lot more battery life than you would have had with the stock LG firmware.

Since this is an official release of Lineage OS, the ROM can be expected to be used as a daily driver, but it’s preferably safer to flash the Nightly builds. If you’re the daring type and are dying to find out what’s new with Lineage then by all means go ahead with the experimental builds.

Note: You must have a custom recovery like TWRP installed on your device to be able to install Lineage OS. Also, you will need to download and flash root addon package separately as Lineage OS only provides root via ADB.

How to Install Lineage OS on G4

  1. Download and transfer the Lineage OS ROM zip file and Gapps package zip file that you downloaded above to your G4 .
  2. Boot your G4 into TWRP recovery.
  3. Select Wipe from TWRP main menu and do a Swipe to Factory Reset on the bottom of screen.
  4. Go back to TWRP main menu, tap on Install and select the Lineage OS .zip file that you transferred to your G4 in Step 1.
  5. After selecting the .zip file, do Swipe to Confirm Flash on the bottom of screen to begin the custom ROM installation process. This may take some time.
  6. Once your ROM is successfully flashed, you’ll see Wipe cache/Dalvik option, select it and then do Swipe to wipe on bottom of screen.
  7. Now flash the Nougat Gapps file similarly, just the way flashed the ROM file.
  8. After flashing both Lineage OS and Gapps, reboot your G4 .

That’s all there is to it. Lineage OS is now installed on your LG G4.
