Install TugaPower 6.0 ROM on OnePlus 5T (Based on LineageOS 15.1)

Great news for all OnePlus 5T users, TugaPower 6.0 is now available for download on the xda thread, thanks to the developer danieldmm. The ROM is based on LineageOS 15.1, which brings about great stability, and a bunch of useful features that were lacking in the original LineageOS in the first place. You will be able to easily Install TugaPower 6.0 ROM on OnePlus 5T by following our guide below.

OnePlus 5T was released shortly after the release of the OnePlus 5, boasting a new and improved 18:9 display, a set of new cameras, but everything else about the two phones was identical. The phone was released for the same price tag as the OnePlus 5 in some regions, which led people in purchasing the latter since it was an obvious choice. The 5T carries in it the Snapdragon 835, 8 gigabytes of RAM, 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage, and a flagship build and design. On top of that, OnePlus’ great software based on Android Oreo has amazing optimizations for battery life and performance.

Custom ROMs like LineageOS and Resurrection Remix have taken over the developer communities, but even TugaPower has its name all over the forums as well, and for a good enough reason. While LineageOS lives solely off of stock experience and stability, and Resurrection Remix boasts of having the most features in a single ROM, TugaPower gets the best of both worlds, integrating stability with features. One of the reasons as to why this ROM is so well known is due to its insane battery life.

Although OnePlus claims that the users still retain their device’s warranty, we strictly advice you not to proceed with the guide unless you are an Android enthusiast wanting the most out of your device. With that being said, if you don’t already have an unlocked bootloader, with a custom recovery installed on your OnePlus 5T, we have detailed guides on the following as well.
