Manually upgrading LineageOS

The updater app does not support upgrades from one version of LineageOS to another, and will block installation to any update for a different version. Upgrading manually requires similar steps to installing LineageOS for the first time.

  1. Download the LineageOS install package that you’d like to install or build the package yourself.
    • (Optionally): If you want to install an application package add-on such as Google Apps (use the arm64 architecture), please read and follow the instructions on Google Apps page
  2. Make sure your computer has working adb. Setup instructions can be found here.
  3. Additionally if you are on LineageOS 16.0 or below, enable USB debugging on your device. Open Settings, then “System”, then “Developer Options”, then select “Root Access Options”, and finally “ADB Only”. Now, run adb root
  4. Run adb reboot sideload.
  5. Run adb sideload /path/to/zip (inserting the path to your LineageOS package).
  6. (Optionally): If you want to install any add-ons, click Advanced, then ADB Sideload, then swipe to begin sideload, then adb sideload /path/to/zip those packages in sequence.
  7. Once you have installed everything successfully, run adb reboot.
