I don’t think the “overview” was successful and rather irritating, compared to the weeks of “…working on coming up with a plan …” by the /e/ team.
The wording “We will be updating the device lists in case any device has been missed out in each category.” indicates in advance that not all devices are listed.
And so it is. Not only is the Samsung Galaxy S7 is not mentioned, but also the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy 6 Edge - neither in the list “Devices new and existing being upgraded to Pie or Q - once we have the /e/ Q code ready” nor in the list “Devices with end of official /e/ support”.
The latest “herolte” /e / OS (stable) is version e-0.9-n (Android 7.1.2) with build date 15.05.2020 and Android security patch level April, 5th of 2020.
A system update check that has just been performed results in the following message:
The update check failed. Please check your internet connection an try agin later.
Oh well, my internet connection is okay, but the test to download /e/ OS e-0.9-n (dev) using a notebook also failed with the following message:
The website is not available
The website at https://images.ecloud.global/dev/herolte/ may be temporarily unavailable or permanently moved to a new web address.
By the way: The (stable) version is used for the purchase version of the e.foundation devices, the (dev) version is the general version. Latest “herolte” dev version is e-0.9-n-2020051153544-dev-herolte.
The telegram group has been talking for some time about an official “herolte” Oreo test version (Android 8.1.0) with a build date of 14.06.2020, but not about a 9-pie version. In the current “nougart” situation I would not buy another S7 “herolte” as /e/ phone.
But the Galaxy S7 is still a good smartphone, as the results show other custom roms based on Android 9 (pie= and Android 10 (Q).
