LineageOS offers an official International Samsung Galaxy S6 build, which does NOT install on the T-Mobile USA S6, but there's an unofficial T-Mobile USA build that does, but after installing it just hangs on boot. (To install I used TWRP and adb sideloaded LineageOS, Stock Open gapps, SuperSU in that order) Has anyone had success running LineageOS on the T-Mobile version of the S6?

I was able to install this cryptic NexusOS version of LineageOS by Team Nexus.

I have no idea if it's safe, or a good ROM, The github is here but it's lacking information, an issues page, or a website on it, and it only seems to be referenced in broken english blogs, and scam searches appear when searching nexus-roms.eu on duckduckgo, and their site is down. So I would not recommend it. It does seem to install & boot on the T-Mobile USA Samsung Galaxy S6


I just installed LineageOS on my SM-G920T using this build from XDA: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s6/samsung-galaxy-s-6--s-6-edge-unified-development/rom-unofficial-lineageos-17-1-t4053959

I used the following resources:

In the end, the process was:

  1. Install TWRP (https://twrp.me/):
  1. Restart the phone in recovery mode (Vol Up + Home + Power)
  2. Move the 2 or 3 zip files (LineageOS, Magisk, and GoogleApps) to your phone's internal memory or a mounted SD card
  3. Wipe the Dalvik cache, system, data and cache partitions (do not wipe the internal storage or USB)
  4. Install Lineage OS, Google Apps, and Magisk
  5. Wipe the Dalvik cache again and reboot

The instructions from the XDA build do not mention installing Magisk but If I didn't install it both the 9.0 and 10.0 based builds failed to boot, I didn't install SuperSU but you shouldn't have trouble adding the zip to the install queue.
