    Here comes the OFFICIAL Lineage OS 14.1 for Pixel C ROM build. Also, here is the LineageOS 15 for Pixel C, which you can try. If you want some more Lineage ROMs for other devices then stay tuned to the Lineage OS 14.1 ROMs page or the latest Android O Lineage ROMs list of supported devices.

    THIS IS AN INITIAL NIGHTLY BUILD WHICH MAY HAVE BUGS. HAVE A BACKUP OF THE CURRENT ROM BEFORE FLASHING THIS ROM AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Google Pixel C (dragon) requires the bootloader to be unlocked on the Pixel C (dragon) phone, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.
