Galaxy Note 9 LineageOS ROM now available unofficially

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 pie beta

The news has come in that LineageOS ROM is now available on Galaxy Note 9, albeit unofficially. It is to be noted that it is not available for the Snapdragon-powered variants of the Note 9 sets but only some select Exynos variants like International (F), International Dual-SIM (DS), and Korean (N) models only.

This LineageOS ROM version 15.1 is now available but we would understand if you were hoping for the Android 9 based LineageOS 16 build already. LineageOS 15.1 is based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

Install a custom ROM requires TWRP recovery. You can get the Galaxy Note 9 TWRP here, but know that installing TWRP will void the warranty of your device.

The ROM isn’t a stable build yet. Even though basic stuff like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Camera, Mobile network, USB, Audio, etc. are working with the ROM, stuff like Samsung Pay, KNOX, Iris scanner, VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc. isn’t supported — so, if you need those features, the ROM isn’t for you.

If your Galaxy Note 9 has Snapdragon 845 processor, know about its Android Pie update that’s under the works.
