Android Pie Download List / Supported Devices List – Android 9


Android 9 Pie is released today and you must be wondering when your Android phone will get the Android Pie update?

Well, the fact is, only a handful of Android devices will be updated to Android Pie (Android 9) from their respective manufacturers. The thumb rule is most of the Android phones get the latest Android version for 2 next major releases.

Exceptionally only few manufacturers update their phones to the latest Android beyond two years mark like OnePlus, Xiaomi etc.

But there are some other options available to update an Android phone beyond official updates!

Android 9 (Android Pie) Download List

Android Pie (Android 9) Custom ROM:

If your phone is an older one (may be two years old or more), there is a chance that it won’t get the Android 9 update from the phone’s manufacturer.

But that’s just NOT the official update, uh huh!
There comes the custom ROM such as LineageOS, AOSP ROM, AICP ROM, crDroid ROM, Resurrection Remix ROM, OmniROM etc. which can still bring the latest Android for your Android phone.

Yes, that’s true.

If you see the Lineage OS 15.1 ROMs list which is based on Android Oreo, then you can see there are so many outdated phones such as OnePlus One, Nexus 4, Zuk Z1 etc. have still got the Android Oreo update.

What Android Pie Download options are available??

Similarly If you want the Android Pie update, then below are some of the Android 9 (Android Pie) based custom ROMs list which you can visit frequently to see when your device gets that:

  • LineageOS 16
  • AOSP Android Pie ROM
  • AICP Android Pie ROM
  • crDroid Android Pie ROM
  • Resurrection Remix Android Pie ROM

Based on the availability of an Android Pie ROM, I will add more ROMs in this list.

If your device is neither in the below Android Pie update list nor on any ROMs list, then you can still try other legacy ROM updates such as an Android Oreo ROM or an Android Nougat ROM.

Android Oreo Custom ROMs:

Android Nougat Custom ROMs:


Add-on links required after installing Android 9 Pie Custom ROM:

As always any custom ROM does not come with pre-installed GApps (Google Applications) because of Copyright issues.
So, you need an extra Oreo 9 GApps (such as Open GApps, MindTheGapps etc.) to be installed via a custom recovery like TWRP recovery.

Also, mostly none of the Android Pie ROM come with built-in ROOT binary, hence you need to install the supersu ROOT binary after installing the Android Pie (Android 9) ROM. Well, the ROOT binary is optional unless you really want to ROOT your Android Phone.

In addition, almost all of the Android phones come with bootloader locked and a stock Android recovery.
So, you may need the following too:

NOTE: If you are installing an OFFICIAL Android Pie update released from an OEM  then you don’t need any of the above stuff.

Below are the Android Pie download link for available Android Phones. These Android Pie update links may lead to an OEM released OFFICIAL link or it could be a custom ROM based on Android 9 (Android Pie).


Most of the links in the above list are dead at this moment. Links will be active the moment any Android Pie update is available for some device of an OEM.
