    Android Oreo 8.0 based LineageOS 15 for Nexus 5 is now available to download via an EXPERIMENTAL development build. This post provides the download link to the Android Oreo based LineageOS 15 for Nexus 5 and guides through the installation process of the same. This Lineage OS 15 for Nexus 5 is brought to you by developer tathanhlam66.

    If you want the OFFICIAL Lineage OS 15 update or some more Android Oreo ROMs then stay tuned to the Lineage OS 15 ROMs page or the AOSP Oreo ROMs devices list page.

    THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY NOT BOOT AT ALL. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM requires an unlocked bootloader on Nexus 5, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. Understand that you are the only person making changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.

    Root binary is NOT inbuilt in Lineage OS ROM, so you may need a separate SuperSu package or LineageOS su binary to install to gain ROOT access. Here is Lineage OS 15 Rooting guide

    If there is no in-built ROOT or it does not work for some reason then you can try SuperSU rooting guide to enable ROOT access.

    Points to NOTE:

    • Boot into Recovery.
      Make sure to have a Custom recovery like CWM or TWRP or any other custom recovery. If not then download the recovery for Nexus 5 from above link and follow the Custom Recovery Installation Guide (it’s a generic guide which will work for TWRP as well as CWM recovery or any other recovery)

    The 15.1 download is offline!?
    Is there nothing newer than 3 months old?

    I’ve installed this ROM and i can say: Great Work! Nearly everythings works so far,
    it’s fast like hell and battery drain seems to be better too. I came from Lineage OS 14.1 official.
    I’ve rooted with the latest Super-SU for Oreo. No problems but one thing: adb over usb does not work.
    “adb devices” on computer always returns an detected but offline device. Also i have never been asked for authorization by the phone when the phone was connected by usb. The normal data connection with the
    /sdcard-Folder works. The fun is: adb over wifi-network is ok and in this case i get the expected authorization-message on my phone. But everything else i’ve seen so far: awesome work! Please continue :-)

    Well, I have added back appropriate links to Krizthian’s LineageOS 15.1 for Nexus 5.
    It is highly appreciated if you can donate to Krizthian for his builds. He is in need of donations to run his build server.

    Following is a message from his xda profile:
