    Rom download link just says:

    404 not found
    Can’t find it!
    Seems like that URL doesn’t exist. Or at least we can’t seem to find it. We’ve even looked under the seat cushions and zip, nada, nothing.

    :< could this be fixed soon? thnx

    Hi @jefff
    I am not sure of the official Lineage OS updates because LineageOS team has some set of standards to be followed by the developer maintaining a device which is more tight in terms of quality of the ROM and also long term maintenance etc.

    Regarding the updates to amjads’ builds, I have updated a link to his build folder where you have new ROM updates waiting. The latest build from him when I was writing this reply was on date: 21st May.

    Dear shibaa987,

    Could you give release notes for every version of the ROM?
    I want to contact amjads himself but no contact information found.
    Right now i’m using lineage-14.1-20170629-amjads-kate.zip, and today i see that there is update lineage-14.1-20170708-amjads-kate.zip.
    I wanna know what’s updated on the new version before flashing it.
    Thanks a lot.
