An unofficial build of Lineage OS is now available for the LG G4. For the uninitiated, Lineage OS is the new name for CyanogenMod ROM as the original maintainers of the ROM separated their ways.
As of now, the LOS ROMs are based on the same source code as CyanogenMod so there aren’t any real world difference between the two. However, changes to Lineage OS will be made once the new team is done with infrastructure setup for the new OS.
First official Lineage OS builds are expected to be out by January with CM support officially coming to a halt on December 31st. The procedure for flashing this ROM should be the same as the rest of the custom ROMs out there. Before you proceed, take caution and more importantly take backups.

Since this is an AOSP based ROM, you’re require to flash/install a Nougat supported Gapps package separately via recovery to get Google services like Play store and others back on your device.
