    Post LineageOS Publishes First Document in Public Charter

    There's no custom Android ROM out there that's more dependable than LineageOS. It's actually the only custom ROM that I know of with a working built-in updater—flash it once (with the optional root binary) and you can take OTA updates as they come without ever having to flash a full ROM again.

    Over the weekend the first page in a Public Charter was published on the LineageOS github, detailing the requirements for device support. The list is long, exhaustive and impressive. Here are a few highlights:

    Camera - all devices with Camera supported in their stock OS MUST support Camera, in both front facing and rear camera configurations.

    CVE - devices MUST support CVE patches for “high profile” exploits and vulnerabilities (if the media is reporting on it, then we must have it patched).

    Encryption - all devices MUST support software encryption.

    Root (su) - all devices MUST NOT ship with su included. All devices MUST support su installation via LineageOS provided ‘Extras’ download.

    Wiki - all devices with a shipping build of LineageOS MUST have a wiki page with valid installation instructions.
    I think it's pretty great to see a custom ROM so dedicated to user experience and transparency. You can read more about the charter—and see the actual document for yourself—at the links immediately below.

    Nice! I'm thinking that it's finally time to try LineageOS on my older phones, and to make a donation.

    I just wish they would have carried over the Privacy -> Blocked caller list -> Unknown numbers feature from CyanogenMod. That's my one major complaint with LineageOS.
