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. Build a LineageOS install package.
  2. Make sure your computer has working adb. Setup instructions can be found here.

  3. Run adb reboot sideload.
  4. Run adb sideload /path/to/zip (inserting the path to your LineageOS package).
  5. (Optionally): If you want to install any add-ons, click Advanced, then Reboot to Recovery, then when your device reboots, click Apply Update, then Apply from ADB, then adb sideload /path/to/zip those packages in sequence.
  6. Once you have installed everything successfully, click the back arrow in the top left of the screen, then “Reboot system now”.
