LineageOS 18.1 brings Android 11 to the OnePlus 6 and 6T

Last month, LineageOS 18.1 based on Android 11 was released for nearly 60 devices. Now, Oneplus 6 and Oneplus 6T also got included in the list.

OnePlus has yet to roll out an official Android 11 update to the OnePlus 6 or 6T, so LineageOS 18.1 is the most stable way to run Android 11 right now.

New features in LineageOS 18.1

  • Security patches from April 2020 to March 2021 have been merged to LineageOS 15.1 through 18.1.
    • 18.1 builds are currently based on the android-11.0.0_r32 tag, which is the Pixel series unified
      tag.
  • Wi-Fi display is available for newer Qualcomm devices, on a device-by-device basis.
  • WebView has been updated to Chromium 89.0.4389.105.
  • The Recorder app has been vastly improved in more ways than can be counted, go leave yourself a voice-memo so you don’t forget that great idea!
    • Screen recording has been moved to a QS tile to match AOSP’s behavior.
    • The user interface has been revamped and there’s also now a UI for easily viewing, managing, and sharing your voice notes.
    • It’s now possible to choose the quality of your audio recordings to save space.
    • It’s now possible to pause and resume recordings.
  • The FOSS Etar app has been forked, improved, and shipped in place of the stagnant and largely
    unmaintained AOSP calendar.
  • The Calyx institute’s FOSS Seedvault application has been included as a built-in backup solution.
    • To use it, navigate to Settings -> System -> Backup, and “Change backup provider” to Seedvault. You can then click “Seedvault Backup” to configure, schedule, and encrypt backups!
    • Backups created with Seedvault can be uploaded on your Nextcloud instance, an external USB drive or kept on your local storage.
  • There is now an option on non-A/B devices to update the recovery image alongside the OS, just as the stock OS would!
    • To use this, either enable the option during the initial device setup, or navigate to Settings -> System -> (Show More) Updater -> Three Dot Menu in the top right -> and check “Update recovery alongside OS”.
  • The music app, Eleven now has a more up-to-date UI and integrates nicely with all the new android
    features for music players such as seeking from the notification.
  • All LineageOS apps now have support for dark mode.

The build for the OnePlus 6 is maintained by developers LuK1337 and luca020400, while the build for the 6T is maintained by just LuK1337.

You can download LineageOS 18.1 for these devices by visiting the wiki pages linked below. Be sure to follow the installation instructions to a T because it’s easy to soft brick your phone or mess up installing GApps and other addons if you follow any steps out of order.
