LineageOS 20 running Android 13 is coming to the Google Pixel 2 family and more

LineageOS 20 is already available for a large number of devices from Samsung, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Motorola, Sony and even Google. To keep the modding spirit alive, more devices are constantly being added to the list. The second-generation Pixel phones are the latest Google devices to get official support for the latest LineageOS build based on Android 13.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL got the latest official OS update from Google in 2020, bringing it to Android 11. However, the phones are far from forgotten due to the ongoing support from the aftermarket development community. The team at LineageOS has also added four additional smartphones to the official LineageOS 20 list: BQ Aquaris X, BQ Aquaris X Pro, Nubia Z17, and Nubia Z18 Mini.

Apart from the aforementioned phones, two Android TV boxes can now run official LineageOS 20 builds. The first is Askey’s Google ADT-3 Developer Kit, which isn’t exactly a consumer device. However, Dynalink TV Box is a popular choice among the Android TV community.

If you own any of these devices and would like to upgrade to Android 13, you can download the ROM from the links in the table below. The wiki links mentioned below will take you to the respective device pages, where you will find the LineageOS recovery image, the removable ZIP file, and flashing instructions for your device.

Official support from the LineageOS team means that builds will be compiled from the project’s source code, signed with the team’s signature keys, and distributed through their servers, rather than having all of these steps performed by individual maintainers. There are plenty of custom ROMs available on the XDA forums from many talented developers, but people still flock to LineageOS because of its organizational structure and build delivery. Furthermore, the team values ​​stability above all else and works to ensure that all devices running on stock firmware will also work after flashing their build.
