How to install LineageOS 15.1 Build on OnePlus 6

Before we proceed further one thing to be noted is that this LineageOS for the OnePlus 6 is in alpha stage, therefore, you might come across errors and bugs after the installation. Many things in the system are broken and do not work, so we don’t recommend installing it unless you wanted to risk experiencing the ROM.

It is not as simple as installing TWRP on OnePlus 6. If you want to proceed then be sure to closely follow the XDA thread to install LineageOS 15.1 on OnePlus 6.
