How to Install LineageOS in Yu Yureka Black (Custom ROM For Yu5040 Garlic)
LineageOS For Yu Yureka Black
LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restores the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.
Note: Make sure to take a backup of important files, photos, contacts etc. as installing a custom ROM resets your phone and we are not responsible for any data loss ar damage to your system.
