OnePlus X was released back in Oct 2016, the device is well known for it’s decent specifications. OnePlus X is not getting the official Android 7.0 Nougat treat from OnePlus but if you wish to install Android 7.1.1 Nougat firmware on OnePlus X then you are at the right place. If you consider the hardware strength, running latest version of Android on OnePlus is no big deal as we have seen the average devices with mediocre specifications running the Lineage ROM well.

The Lineage OS 14.1 installation process is quite easy infact you need to follow in sequence and pay attentions on the instructions below. If you have a custom recovery like TWRP recovery installed on your device already then all you need to do is just flash the ROM zip from recovery along latest Lineage OS gapps and that’s it. For your ease we also mentioned the guide to install TWRP recovery on your OnePlus X as well.
