    If you want the OFFICIAL LineageOS 15 update or some more Android Oreo ROMs then stay tuned to the LineageOS 15 ROMs page or the AOSP Oreo ROMs devices list page or the AICP 13 Oreo ROMs list.

    THIS IS AN INITIAL ALPHA BUILD WHICH HAS MANY BUGS. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM requires an unlocked bootloader on Xperia Z2, 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.
