Download LineageOS 15.1 For OnePlus 5 Android Oreo 8.0: Last week, an alpha of LineageOS 15.1 was released by XDA Senior Recognized Developer codeworkx for the OnePlus 5, bringing Android 8.1 Oreo to the OnePlus 5. It’s a little unstable, and a clear upgrade path from the 14.1 official to the 15.1 build has yet to be established. But a data wipe followed by a clean flash is enough to upgrade from 14.1 to the latest version.
codeworkx hinted that he might release a unified package for the 5 and the 5T sometime in the future, once the current alpha build enters stable. Right now, though, not all of LineageOS’s applications and features have made it into the alpha build.
A word of caution: If you haven’t set a PIN or password, custom recoveries such as TWRP might not be able to decrypt your phone’s data. We suggest reading the flashing guide carefully before proceeding.

This is a very early preview of the upcoming LineageOS 15.1 which might be unstable and/or do strange strings.
There’s no migration path from 14.1 to 15.1 yet. A data wipe is REQUIRED!
It’s also possible that a data wipe might be required when upgrading to future builds.
ROM might be unified with Oneplus 5T in future (not sure yet).
