As you can see only a few devices have POSP support. Nonetheless, we can expect the list to evolve over the course of time including more devices from different manufacturers. If your device is listed above, then you should give the ROM a try. The installation procedure is similar or as it is – you need an unlocked bootloader cum custom recovery such as TWRP installed on your device. Then, download the respective files from the above link and flash the ROM via TWRP. Note that, Google Apps and services are not included on the POSP base. In case if you’d like to have Google and Google Play Services, don’t forget to flash GApps zip.
