LineageOS download challenge (over 1650 installations!)



We’re up 14 places/47 installs and before the Asus Zenpad 8.0 :smiley:

@Ingo, Could you or someone else update the first post again? :slight_smile:


Uff, that was close! :joy:

Here is the updated chart:


Do devices running the microG fork count into that number?

A post was split to a new topic: Ubuntu Touch download challange

Huh!? Huawei Ascend Mate 2 lost half of its userbase!?

compared to last week:

Fairphone 2 has become an evil phone: :imp:

Here is the updated chart:

At a constant growth rate of 7% we will reach 1000 active users in about 6 weeks (mid January).

Edit: At 1000 users we get detailed statistics about the version in use and the country of the user.


Perhaps people move away because the device is not supported anymore.
But how does LineageOS count an “active install”? By phoning home?

The official statistics page defines the counted devices as “active installs”. I assume that those are installs that are calling home to look for newer updates.

Ah, that must be it!

Meh, the design of the stats page has changed. Mainly they are now just using the nicknames instead of the “human readable” names of the phones.

But we made the top #300! And it seems we passed the OPPO Find 7s which went down 28 installs.

There are two stats pages:

(Open data :heart_eyes:)



I feel somewhat stupid now :smiley:

No worries, I was confused too at first. :wink:

@Stefan: Thanks for this fantastic statistic graph!

As of today, the FP2 is only 8 places below the OnePlus 5 – a quite popular device. It’s around 30 install. We the FP2 make it before christmas?

Be aware that the Oneplus 5 is listed twice: Once as “(Oneplus5)” (rank 290) and once as “Oneplus 5” (rank 62, over 6800 installs). :wink:


Oops, i must have missed that. :grin:

Unfortunately the data series has become irregular due to a server outage on 12th Dec so I had to make some modifications to the chart.

Here is the raw data, maybe one of you can improve on the above chart:

How does this statistic work. Does the OS phone home? Or does someone who’s admin on the server count the number of nightly downloads?
