I really prefer to have the latest version available, even if there’s no the latest android. :frowning:

I love to have Lineage 16 (unofficial) no 14.1 (official), by example.

Please bear in mind, that actuality of ROM and actuality of firmware depend in some (many?) cases on each other: Oneplus 5 (cheeseburger) /e/ 0.2 unofficial now available (Bonus: receives OTA updates)

I am afraid, if /e/ is lagging too much behind LineagOS or stock ROM, then the installation of /e/ might fail ever so often, because people would have to downgrade firmware beforehand.

LineageOS for Oneplus 5 = ‘cheeseburger’ has now moved to Pie and requires firmware 9.0.3.

Will the Oreo version of /e/ (when it becomes official) work without downgrade ?


#45

No it will not work. /e/ source code is currently not compatible with pie. For Cheeseburger currently the /e/ supported build is on nougat and the device will have to be downgraded to nougat specific firmware to work. This is the same for any device - the firmware will have to be compatible with the /e/ build version.
