If you want the OFFICIAL LineageOS 14.1 update for Nokia 3 or Android Nougat ROMs for other devices then stay tuned to the LineageOS 14.1 ROMs list. For Android OREO based ROMs, stay tuned to the LineageOS 15 download page or the AOSP Android Oreo ROMs devices list page.

THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY NOT BOOT AT ALL. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Nokia 3 requires an unlock bootloader for Nokia 3 Mediatek 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.
