For those of you who want to upgrade your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to the latest Android 8.1 Oreo, you are in luck as there is a stable version of Lineage OS 15.1 ROM that you can run on it if you have one of the models supported. While Samsung has stopped updating stock firmware since Android 5.0 Lollipop, you can still grab the latest and best Android 8.1 Oreo and easily install it. Now, this is an AOSP ROM(What is AOSP?), meaning you won’t be able to get any TouchWiz apps (Samsung apps that depend on Samsung firmware). As far as the S-Pen goes, it still works you will just have to use a 3rd party app(such as Squid) which work just the same.

Samsung has stopped updating the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge since Android 7.0 Nougat and for those of you who want to still get latest Android 8.1 Oreo + root, here’s how to do it. Now, this is NOT a Samsung Touchwiz firmware, rather custom ROM or AOSP(What is AOSP?) But you will get much better performance and battery life over Samsung Touchwiz plus the latest and great Android 8.1 Oreo so I don’t see why not. The NexusOS ROM comes with all the standard features of latest Android 8.1 Oreo and a few additions like Always On Display.
If you are still stuck on older Android OS such as Android 6.0 Marshmallow or even Android 7.1.2 Nougat, you may want to upgrade your OS to the latest Android 8.1 Oreo by using the Lineage OS 15.1 custom ROM for the HTC One M8. This is a full-feature packed custom ROM that will get your aging HTC One M8 to the greatest and latest Android OS. You will get ALL of new Android 8.1 standard features plus couple customization that Lineage OS brings.
