How to Install Android Nougat LineageOS on Asus Zenfone 5

Step by step to do to install LineageOS on Zenfone 5 - As you may already know, Cyanogen is dead! All Cyanogen services including the nightly builds for all supported devices, will no longer be supported. Thankfully, the CyanogenMod team decided to not crush the dreams of thousands of CM users and transitioned CM into Lineage OS.

Say hello to Lineage OS, the CyanogenMod successor. The infrastructure and the CyanogenMod name are owned by Cyanogen Inc, which left the open source contributors with a dilemma. Steve Kondik as one of the founders of Cyanogen Inc left the company as it began to disintegrate.

But, Kondik and other developers involved in the project are working to continue in the spirit of CM with Lineage OS.
