Latest LineageOS 14.1 Nightly Brings Nougat 7.1.2 Along With April Security Patch

Continuing on with their trend of providing weekly summaries to the community about changes introduced in LineageOS, the LineageOS team have now listed the notable changes made to the ROM over the last two weeks.

The noteworthy changes include the merging of AOSP branch of Nougat 7.1.2 along with the April security patch. The LineageOS team have also fixed the issue wherein Extra Tiles led to a battery drain. A bunch of bug fixes are included in the latest builds of the ROM too.

LineageOS have also upgraded the infrastructure of their website and wiki pages to use the HTTPS protocol. Apart from that, LineageOS are now accepting donations as well. The donations can only be made using Bitcoin currently, but the team has stated that they are working on accepting payments using other platforms. To let the donors know on how their contribution will be used, LineageOS have setup a monthly costs infra wiki page.

Official nightly builds for the Nextbit Robin have been put on hold until the device maintainers fix the major issues. Nextbit had started rolling out the Nougat update for the Robin recently and hence the kernel sources of the update should be made available soon. This will definitely help the maintainers in resolving the bugs.

The nightly builds for the Korean variants of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE (t0ltektt and t0lteskt) are now unified under the codename t0ltekor. Official builds for the US Cellular version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 (klteusc) have been merged with the global variant of S5 (klte).
