How do I find the /e/ version and Android version installed on my /e/ phone?
Find your /e/OS + Android version information
In /e/OS currently supported devices one finds /e/OS version in
Settings > About phone > Android version > /e/OS version
In supported /e/ it is expected that /e/OS version will copy to clipboard – an easily shared match with the naming convention.
System Updater shows the /e/ version, in one line and the Android version in the second line. The build type | release channel and the device codename are missing, so an image from System updater shares less information with others who may be able to provide device specific help.
What changed between /e/ versions v0.nn and v1.0 onwards?
The “no longer supported” builds stopped at v0.23 or earlier, device dependent.
Can I edit this post?
Under Construction! This an “editable by all” post where more up to date information can be shared. Kudos to @AnotherElk for feedback by PM, especially to draw attention to /e/ versions being primarily /e/ updates at monthly / six weekly intervals, while Android versions may change very roughly annually. /e/ has to be built again when Android versions change, so this is not expected to arrive for some time after a new Android version becomes available for a device. @aibd
Proposal: text in italics will probably be deleted from the final wiki post. Feel free to “talk” here, or to add known accurate material above. @aibd
Yeah, that’s it!..now i understand!All the numbers can confuse you. Then everything is ok and I try again with the easy-installer.In addition, until recently I had an iPhone, Android and so it is still completely new to me.
As I understand it, notifications aren’t available for when updates to a new major version i.e. from 12-13, only for minor updates i.e. 11.1-11.2.
Does anyone know how to find out when the next major version is available?
I think if your combination of device and /e/OS build qualifies for an available OTA upgrade (= upgrade of the Android version via updater, see the development updates @aibd linked to for such announcements), the updater will notify you as with any other available update.
Updater only notifies for same major version. I was on 10 for 2 years and only found out about 12 through happenstance. Based on development noted, 13 should be available next month but would still be nice to be notified.
That being said, I don’t know for sure but I imagine it works this way because going on in major versions requires going back to stock rom first then updating that then installing /e/.
