LineageOS announced its April Fools’ Day joke at the appropriate time back on Sunday, but the gag itself wasn’t ready until the most recent builds were released yesterday. Now that it has actually landed (late), the hoax has lost both its relevance and its taste. So if you flash this week’s update and see a warning about software counterfeiting and cryptocurrency mining, don’t freak out. It’s just a very late, very bad joke.
The warning, as it appears on a freshly-updated device.
Don’t freak out: LineageOS has a very bad and very late April Fools’ joke in latest builds was written by the awesome team at Android Police.

Android P is the latest iteration of Google’s mobile operating system, and it’s been available to test as a Developer Preview on the company’s Pixel phones for about a month now. I flashed the preview on my Pixel 2 XL a few weeks ago and have been using the phone as my daily driver since.
