Happy Valentine's Day! The Android-x86 project is glad to announce cm-x86-14.1-r1. This is the first stable release of LineageOS (formerly CyanogenMod) 14.1 porting for Android-x86. The prebuilt images are available in the following site:

Key Features

The cm-x86-14.1-r1 is a porting of LineageOS 14.1 to the Android-x86 platform as the BSP. Based on the Android-x86 7.1-r1 and the latest LineageOS 14.1, it includes almost all the features from the two open source projects.

Released Files

This release contains four files:

  • 64-bit ISO:  cm-x86_64-14.1-r1.iso

    sha1sum: 4535adb3d3f0bdd147e70a1c872f0b230523b5ad

  • 32-bit ISO:  cm-x86-14.1-r1.iso

    sha1sum: d80c545475d8d230b9d3d82edfe009f65e68add0

  • 64-bit rpm:  cm-x86-14.1-r1.x86_64.rpm

    sha1sum: 8dc328e0c06923dce7bbab0e8e6e8054c74b0827

  • 32-bit rpm:  cm-x86-14.1-r1.i686.rpm

    sha1sum: 69727b76ea3924663cfa6155a0c4006609f71d59

You can choose one of these files depends on your devices. In doubt, try the 32-bit ISO for legacy BIOS devices and 64-bit files for UEFI devices.

To use an ISO file, Linux users could just dump the it into a usb drive to create a bootable usb stick like

$ dd if=cm-x86_64-14.1-r1.iso of=/dev/sdX

where /dev/sdX is the device name of your usb drive.

Windows's users can use the tool Win32 Disk Imager to create a bootable usb stick.

Please read this page about how to install it to the device.

Except the traditional ISO files, we also packaged files as a Linux package rpm. It allows Linux users to easily install the release into an existing Linux device with a standalone ext4 root partition. On an rpm based device (Fedora/Red Hat/CentOS/...), just install it like a normal rpm package:

$ sudo rpm -Uvh cm-x86-14.1-r1.x86_64.rpm

All files will be installed to the /cm-x86-14.1-r1/ subdirectory and a boot entry will be added to grub2 menu. Reboot and choose cm-x86 item from the menu to enter the system.

To uninstall it:

$ sudo rpm -e cm-x86

On a deb based device (Debian/Ubuntu/LinuxMint/...), please use the alien tool to install it:

$ sudo apt install alien
$ sudo alien -ci cm-x86-14.1-r1.x86_64.rpm
