Android 12 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (Wi-Fi) Model SM-P610

I thought I should ask before I do something Stupid.

Your Tip
“Tip: Before installing /e/OS on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (Wi-Fi) gta4xlwifi for the first time, install the latest stock OS version 11 build on the device”

I bought a used Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (Wi-Fi) Model SM-P610. It has Android 12 installed Kernel 4.14.113-23851207 Date Wed. May 18 2022.

Will e/OS install on this??

Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone

Yes that is the Tip; but there is also a Caution!

Caution: Do not install /e/OS on top of a higher version of stock OS. Before installing /e/OS ensure your device has the latest stock OS of the same version as /e/OS. If only lower versions of the stock are available then install the last available lower version before installing /e/OS.

I guess you would need to check out the chances of downgrading to 11 before installing /e/ 11

Thanks for the quick reply.
Looks like I have two choices: down grade to 11 if possible or wait for /e/OS upgrade to 12 if it happens.

sigh: life is so full of these little decisions. :slight_smile:

Looks like Android 12 is available in Lineage OS, lineage-19.1-20220803-nightly-gta4xlwifi-signed.zip.
I’ll have to find out what is the major difference from /e/os/ and Lineage OS.

I see that it is also available in https://lineage.microg.org/ – ofc /e/ has https://ecloud.global/

You can use ecloud.global on Lineage for microg. Just install DAVx5 from F-Droid for Calendar and Contacts sync, NextCloud sync client for file sync, ans NextCloud Notes app for working with Notes. Significantly less buggy and more up-to-date than /e/'s forks :wink:
