Last couple of weeks at LineageOS

Written on March 20, 2017 by harryyoud

Welcome to LineageOS’ biweekly review, where we go over changes in the last couple of weeks

It’s over 1 million!

Our installation counter has ticked over the 1 million mark.
Note that the installation counter is not a 100% accurate reflection of users, by design. Since we don’t actually track devices or users, we use the randomized installation ID, which gets switched each time you wipe your device. So depending on some user’s patterns, 1 physical device could count as multiple installations if they wiped that many times.
Regardless, we’re all very proud of the reception we’ve received and thank you for all of your continued support.
