Download Android 11.0 Custom ROMs for All Android Devices [Installing Guide]
Most of you probably know that Android 11.0 with its stable version has been officially launched for all Pixel phones that support it, in addition to a large number of other Android phones that have joined this journey, either by launching stable versions as well, or even by supporting some of its leading devices to test the beta versions. Like the OnePlus 8 Pro or the Galaxy S20 to name a few.
Thus, the fact that the latest system has become officially available, its source code also has been made available to developers and lovers of discovery and modification, which made modifying the new Android 11 version and porting it into modified ROMs suitable for installation on other Android phones, even old ones, a process possible.
Android 11.0 ROMs (Custom, AOSP)
In fact, there are very old phones like Redmi Note 5, Poco F1, or even OnePlus 3 already got their Android 11 ROMs a while ago. Now, there are a lot of additional phones that have received support for the latest system installation, and we expect even to have support for additional phones in the next few weeks.

On our part, we will periodically update this list whenever any new phones are available that support installing custom or cooked Android 11 ROMs. You should also know that this list does not contain all the Android 11 ROMs available on XDA developers at the moment, but we will only mention the ones that you can rely on for daily use, or that contain at least the basic system functions without errors.
Asus has not yet released a stable Android 10 update for the ZenFone Max Pro M1, but despite that the developer community had unofficially supported the phone before the manufacturer did. The developers have released AOSP, with the open source Android 11 system. The ROM works almost flawlessly with all necessary system functions like camera, networks, etc.

Essential PH-1 Android 11 OS is now available with StatiXOS v4.0. Of course there are a few bugs that you will need to live with in the event that you are a phone user and want to try the new system. For example, the Bluetooth connection does not work in this version of ROM yet. Since this version is still in the alpha (pre-beta) stage, if you install it you will not find any customization options, so you can consider it an AOSP ROM with the name StatiXOS only.

The developer team of RevengeOS has recently launched its first Android 11 release for the Lenovo Z6 Pro. Currently we do not have any information about errors or problems that the system suffers from, but it is often not suitable for daily use.

2. Lenovo ZUK Z2, Z2 Plus
There is an official version of ArrowOS ROM, modified with the latest Android 11 so far, it has become available for the ZUK Z2 and also the Z2 Plus. And to be honest, the ROM is considered without features at all at the present time other than that it is the latest Android OS, so some exclusive features for Lenovo phones such as UTouch or any usual features that you will not find in this version yet, and may be added in the next versions.
XDA’s developers Electimon , erfanoabdi and Lucchetto00 have teamed up to release an “unofficial” version of RevengeOS, Android 11, for the Moto G7 Power. The ROM appears to be stable and can be installed on your primary phone, with only one error which is a problem with operating the NFC connection, so the final decision is yours.
1. Moto G7 Power
The Nokia 6.1 Plus has got the ability to install Android 11 with Potato ROM in an open source Android POSP v4.0.0 version. However, these ROM need certain files that are necessary for networks separately, so make sure that you follow up on these ROM updates from time to time.
1. OnePlus 3 / 3T
The developers team of Havoc-OS has released the first Android 11 ROM for OnePlus 3 as well as OnePlus 3T. If you want to try it, then head over to the ROM download link from the following link:
2. OnePlus 5/5T
If you have one of the OnePlus 5 & 5T twin and want to try the latest Android 11 OS so far on your phone, then go directly to the ROM download link available next. It came with the name YAAP, which is an acronym for Yet another AOSP project. It’s almost just an open source Android ROM with very few customizations. It also lacks many features and options to be able to utilize the phone optimally, but this is normal since this version is still in the early stages of testing, and the developers team will add a lot of features later.
There is also another official release from ArrowOS team built on Android R and is now available for both of them.
3. OnePlus 6
There is a version of POSP ROM on the latest Android OS that has become available for download and installation on the OnePlus 6. The ROM is still in the pre-beta phase of alpha, so it is often not suitable for daily use on your primary phone. The front camera may not work, in addition to some other bugs and problems with the stability of system functions. So, if you want to experiment, you need to make sure that you can deal with these things first.
4. OnePlus 6T
Almost similar to the previous ROM, and the same version of the ROM even but despite that from a different programmer. There is another version of POSP ROM, with Android 11 system, available for the OnePlus 6T. This version on the other hand, although it contains a few bugs, but it is in some necessary things that you may not be able to deal with on your primary phone. One such bug is that the official camera app does not work when you are trying to shoot with the front camera.
5. OnePlus Nord
The Chinese company OnePlus, at the time of writing these words, did not officially launch Android 11 update for the OnePlus Nord, but with that, there are ROMs with the “open source” Android system that have already become available for download and installation on the latest phone from OnePlus. ROM looks almost flawless, very suitable for everyday use with all the usual basic system functions.
1. Realme 3 Pro
The Realme 3 Pro has got the latest LineageOS 18.0 ROM support so far with the latest Android 11, and the same ROM is also compatible with the Realme X Lite. The advantage here is that you can find some exclusive features for Realme phones, such as the game mode or the FPS overlay feature under the Settings menu> then Realme Settings.
2. Realme X2
The Android 11 OS for Realme X2 has also become available via AOSP ROM, and besides the problem of operating the headphone input, the system appears to be stable and does not suffer from any errors in the system functions in this version.
3. Realme XT
If you are looking for a stock Android 11 ROM for the Realme XT instead of customized Realme UI, then you can install this “unofficial” version of RevengeOS 4.0. ROM that appears to be stable and has no faults, so you can rely on it for daily use on your daily driver.
1. Galaxy Tab S5e
The only device from Samsung that has received support for installing Android 11 unofficially “so far” is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e Wi-Fi version only which has LineageOS 18.0 ROM installation support that is built on Android 11.
1. Sony Xperia 10
Android 11 for Sony Xperia 10 is now available with an unofficial version of LineageOS 18.0. Apart from the inability to operate the Wi-Fi display, the system appears to be stable and does not suffer from any errors in the basic phone functions.
2. Sony Xperia 10 Plus
Very similar to the regular version, the Xperia 10 Plus also has support for an unofficial version of LineageOS 18.0 which is built on Android 11 R. The ROM is not generic for this version of the phone, so you simply won’t be able to flash the regular Xperia 10 version On the “Plus” one, and vice versa.
3. Sony Xperia XA2
If you are looking for AOSP 11 (Stock) ROM for Sony Xperia XA2, then you can download and install LineageOS 18.0 which supported the phone recently. The ROM looks stable and suitable for everyday use as long as you don’t care about the Wi-Fi display inability to function.
4. Sony Xperia XA2 Plus
A new “unofficial” version of LineageOS 18.0 is now available for installation on the Xperia XA2 Plus. Important note, here you will need to install the ROM from scratch, and it is never recommended to upgrade directly from LineageOS 17.1 if you happen to be working on it now.
Xiaomi & Redmi devices
1. Poco F1
As for the fan-favorite, the Xiaomi gem, the Poco F1, now if you are a user with the latest Android 11 you can try the latest Android 11 with ReloadedOS or AOSP (developer version) ROM . As for the first ROM, it is currently in the Beta stage and it seems that it is without any catastrophic errors or stability problems, so I think it is suitable for daily use, except in the case that you are using calls or listening to music via a bluetooth connection, because it does not work in this version of the ROM. So, if you want to experiment, then head over to the following links.
There is also the possibility to install Android 11 on the Pocophone F1 by installing an official version of ArrowOS ROM, and from members’ experiences and comments it appears to be stable and suitable for daily use as well.
2. Mi 5s
The Android 11 system for the Mi 5s is available with LineageOS 18.0 “unofficial version”. Of course, you should expect some system errors that you will need to deal with after installing the ROM. The fingerprint sensor, for example, is not working properly, so be careful. If you want to try, download and install via the following link.
3. Mi 9
If you happen to be a Xiaomi Mi 9 user and want to try Android 11 on your phone, then you have the opportunity by installing the custom Fluid 1.0 ROM which is built on the latest Android version.
4. Redmi Note 9S/ Pro/Max and Poco M2 Pro
All Xiaomi phones that came with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720 processor have received support for “generic version” of StatiXOS v4.0 with Android 11 OS (generic version here means that any phone with the same processor can install the same ROM). So, yes, if you are a user of Redmi Note 9S, Redmi Note 9 Pro, or Redmi Note 9 Pro Max as well as Poco M2 Pro, you can actually install this ROM. But you should know, however, that the ROM is not yet supportive of installation on global versions of Redmi Note 9 Pro with the codename Kodi joyeuse.
5. Mi A2 Lite
A ROM with Android 11 open source “AOSP” is now available for the Mi A2 Lite. It appears to be stable and with minimal errors, but in any case you should be prepared for anything. If you want to try, go to the following links, noting that it is still a beta version, according to the developer.
6. Redmi K20, Mi 9T
Yes, in fact, they are both the same phone with the same internal hardware, but they are nonetheless directed to different markets, so if you find that there are suitable ROMs to install on one of them, it will also be the same for the other. So, POSP v4.0 ROM with Android 11 operating system has become available for Xiaomi Redmi K20, which came with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor, and it is also the same that you can install and use it on the Mi 9T.
7. Mi 8
Xiaomi Mi 8 users have also had the ability to try Android R with PixelROM v3.0 (yes, it’s kind of similar to the popular Pixel Experience ROMs, but it’s not the same). The only bug in the ROM is that the fingerprint sensor is not working so that the system can’t bypass the SafetyNet feature from Google. However, the ROM is available for download via the next link.
8. Redmi Note 8, 8T
Redmi Note 8, as well as its younger brother Redmi Note 8T, have been supported by generic AOSP ROM with Android 11 (generic here i.e. the same ROM is valid for installation on both). So, if you are ready to ditch the Wi-Fi Display because it does not work on this version, then it is stable and very suitable for everyday use.
9. Mi A2
Xiaomi Mi A2 with Android One system also has the ability to test Android 11 system with POSP v4.0 ROM. The ROM, however, contains some errors related to the fingerprint sensor, as well as the feature to broadcast the phone screen to TV . But if you are able to use the phone without these features, then you have the opportunity to try this ROM that may be stable and without any other errors.
10. Redmi Note 7, 7S
Redmi Note 7 and its other identical version, the Redmi Note 7S, is currently running Android 10 alongside MIUI 11 officially. But despite that, the phone is very popular with users as well as developers, so if you are a user of one of them, you can now try Android 11 (AOSP) by this one. The Weeb Projekt ROM we’re talking about is almost stable and suitable for use on your primary phone, with all the basic system features and functions.
11. Mi A3
The fact that it is a smartphone under the Android One initiative from Google means that it runs on a system similar to stock Android experience on Pixel devices “almost”. And now, as a mobile user, you can enjoy all the features of the new Android 11 system with AOSP ROM. This system is also distinguished by that it contains all the usual GApps services once installed, meaning you do not need to install Google services separately.
12. Mi Mix, Mi Max Prime
the original Xiaomi Mi Max “first release” as well as the Mi Max Prime version have received support from an unofficial version of LineageOS 18.0 that is based on the open source Android 11. However, you will need to have your phone running with the latest official version of Android Nougat before installing this version of the ROM for the bootloader and kernel to be compatible.
13. Mi Mix 2S
ArrowOS custom ROM developers team recently launched the first Android 11 ROM for Mi Mix 2S, but it is still an unofficial version even though its developers team is the ones who released it! Perhaps because it’s still experimental and unsuitable for everyday use? However, next you can go to the ROM link in the XDA forum as well as the download link if you want to try immediately.
Android 11.0 Google services ‘GApps’
Apart from the very huge number of modified ROMs we mentioned today, we will likely see many more Android 11 ROMs for other phones in the next few weeks. However, you should know that not all Android 11 ROMs will come with the default Google services and applications that you are accustomed to using with all Android phones.
So, if you happen to have installed one of the ROMs that we mentioned above, or even other ROMs from a different source and you are looking for access to Google services or the Play Store app, I am glad to inform you that this section is for this purpose.
1. NikGapps Package
Member Nikhil of the XDA Developers Forum has launched an “updated” version of the official Google services for open source Android 11 ROMs. You can download it directly from the source page via the following link:
TheHitMan member of the XDA Developers Forum has also updated the popular BitGApps package to the latest release so that it is suitable for use on Android 11 AOSP ROMs. The latest version here came with the number R16, and it is the latest to date, and you can download it from the following link:
Custom ROMs installing guide
Of course, today’s explanation isn’t for beginners, and you’ll need some knowledge of what we’re talking about today. But despite that, everything has a beginning, and this page may be your beginning to enter the wonderful world full of new things. So, if you decided that you wanted to try it, so go ahead and see what we are saying next, carefully!
If you are new to this matter, and you are implementing it for the first time, besides that you have reached this page by searching for something and then you found us by accident, then perhaps you should know that there are some necessary requirements first before you go to install the modified Android ROM on your phone.
- Save a backup copy of the phone files.
- Unlock your device’s bootloader.
- Install TWRP custom recovery.
- Do an NANDroid Backup.
install a custom ROM via TWRP
- Download the ROM file from the links attached above, then transfer the files to the internal or external memory.
- Reboot into TWRP recovery mode.
- From the recovery main menu, go to Wipe> Advanced wipe, then choose the System, Data, Cash, Dalvic sections, and then drag the Swipe button below to execute. This process will remove the current system from your device.
- Once again from the main recovery menu, go to the Install button, then browse storage files to the ROM file on the external memory.
- After that, you will need to click the Add More Zips button to add the official Google services (GApps) to the ROM in the event that it is AOSP or does not contain Google applications by default. Finally, swipe the “Swipe” button to start installing the ROM.
- Once the ROM has finished flashing, press the Reboot System button that will appear below.
You probably know this since you are reading these steps, but the first booting after flashing any of the above mentioned Android 11 ROMs usually takes a long time, so do not worry, this is normal. Given that these ROMs are not official but from some independent XDA developers, there is a possibility that the phone will not succeed in the first booting from the ground up, and therefore you must be ready for all possibilities, So we mentioned making a backup NANDroid within the necessary requirements.
