What Is LineageOS?

Okay, If you’re in the Android community for a while there’s a high chance that you might’ve heard of this ROM development group before named “CyanogenMod”. If you don’t know, “CyanogenMod” was famous for making some of the best Custom ROM’s for android. Period,
But just a few months ago Cyanogen INC. the company that provided source codes to CyanogenMod community, was forced to shut down its doors which caused the whole CyanogenMod community to go down as well.
