Custom ROMS provide additional functionalities and features over the stock one. One such ROM is the LineageOS 14.1 developed for the Wileyfox Strom. Moreover, to flash LineageOS, you must have a custom recovery like TWRP installed on your Wileyfox Strom device.
LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1.2 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device. LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps).
LineageOS 14.1 Nightlies Build is another good choice for your Wileyfox Strom. It is the most popular ROM among Android lovers and it is the big dad of most custom ROMs. The ROM keeps away from most of bloatwares and even some necessary ones. Being very small-sized, it gives you probably the fastest performance, smoother transitions and yes the widget setup at the lockscreen too. Another reason to go for this ROM is that it also supports themes that can be download on free and paid basis from the Play Store.
