Checking e/OS for Moto G5 XT1687 codename: potter

Hi. I wanted to double check that my device is NOT supported.

I have a Moto G5 Plus, model XT1687, codename: potter.

It’s not listed under any of the other Motorola devices listed.

I ask only because I had previously installed e/OS on a Sony Xperia and the was some confusion about the model name. I decided to install e/OS from a similar model Xperia and it totally worked.

So I thought I would double check to see if any of the other downloads were known to work with my device.

Thank you,

ChiliDog

The lasted version I could find at least for LineageOS is Android 10 (Q):

https://xdaforums.com/t/rom-unofficial-10-0-potter-lineageos-17-1.4088253/

There is no /e/OS version available and as there are no sources given for this device it cannot be build for /e/OS

used the xda username + “github” from that thread to land at repos. There are a few duplicates, though recently updated were:

https://github.com/riyanahmed65/device-motorola-potter
https://github.com/riyanahmed65/vendor-motorola-potter

the potter SoC (qualcomm 625) is also used in moto deen [UNOFFICIAL BUILD] Motorola One XT1941-4 "deen" for e/OS 1.17 q - motorola has its kernels up in an official repo where people fork from. Probably would go with

https://github.com/LineageOS/android_kernel_motorola_msm8953/

The riyanahmed65 sources are for ArrowOS not for LineageOS. Please always look at the branch info.
Nonetheless I did now search again in Github and found something:

https://github.com/rhymebulbul/lineage_device_motorola_potter

Might give a try later to build…

Idk, but maybe this is the “official” repo for Motorola’s published kernel sources?

I find now sources and could build for /e/OS-R. Please provide feedback if ROM works.
