/e/ OS 'Q' alpha builds are coming!

I’m new to /e/ and would like to install it on my new Fairphone 3+ device. As I understand /e/ OS will only be available after the Q release for this device. Therefore i would like help with the testing if this would help your efforts. Just PM me.


I’d like to try out the Q builds for the FP3 is possible, I have the new camera modules so will be able to test them out as well.

this Q-GSI are working on FP3 (tested by a german user)

Any chance of a build for the a3xelte and the YTX703L, @Manoj :slight_smile: ?

Short info: Manoj is out of office the next days.

I started to check my mails today…there is a huge backlog.
@Rik the YTX703L is being added to the official list most probably on monday. Things got a bit delayed this week. I just updated the documentation for this and 7 other devices. The updates with the builds should reflect on the servers most probably on this coming Monday. The a3xelte is there in our plans and will get the ‘official’ tag soon.


Last night I did a build for my Xioami my A1 (tissot), with the latest /e/ sources with Android Q. In previous occasions (a few days ago) it didn’t boot the smartphone after flashing correctly. But now it has worked fine.
Everything seems to work (at least what I’m trying), except the contacts application (com.android.contacts v1.7.31) that gives Forced Closure when trying to start it.
I’ve also noticed that when the screen is locked, when unlocked, the wallpaper image comes out smaller and tighter to the lower left corner (the rest of the screen is black) and immediately resizes to cover the whole screen.
To be an alpha version, it doesn’t work bad :+1:t3:


Pls keep in mind, the sources are still have the goolag captive login call. All others are removed, as far as I could see


For information: I have build a new Q-GSI with todays sources. All goolag calls are gone. Good job :+1::+1::+1:


Thanks for the input @harvey186 …as I mentioned to you previously the Google call removal should have happened earlier …got delayed as some developers moved out and new ones joined the team.

That sounds fantastic, @harvey186.

I know that you dislike this topic, but it is and remains an urgent topic in view of the rising C-infections.

Which microG Services Core version is included in your new Q-GSI build: current stable release or older releases as or still

The third build of LineageOS-17.1-for-microG for S9 (starlte) and S9+ (star2lte) from 25.09.2020 is equipped with microG Services Core version Among others, the (UK) NHS Covid-19 app version 3.6 (68).68 from 23.09.2020 works with it.

This version without the spying api


great thanks! good luck with the backlog :slight_smile:

You are really incorrigible - in the sense of ‘unique’.

It would be easy for you to integrate the current stable build But no, you praise yourself for your good job - with three dauem upwards - and you ride with a new Q-GSI on old microG paths along with the ‘spying api’ that follows you. The users will decide about the acceptance of your Q-GSI variant.

Nevertheless I thank you for building Q-GSI. Maybe the eTeam can see this as a steep template, but probably not …

No, No, Noooo, I don’t praise myself. I would never do !!! The thumbs up where pointed to the e-dev*s job !!!

sure, but as I have written, I have build a pure eOS-Q-GSI without any source changes. That’s including the MicroG sources.

And I’m sorry, as soon as eOS will include the new microG with the spying api, I will build only my LeOS with ‘old’ MicroG sources, because as you know, I’m totally against it.

And once more sorry, as far as I know, e.foundation isn’t planning any official GSI

Unofficial builds can be made by anyone who feels like it. The alpha builds are made by the e-dev’s for testing in a early stage. The alpha builds do have OTA updates ad can be released with eRecovery.

Hi, thanks for your answer !

I just get the alpha build on my Galaxy Note 9 this morning (with TWRP). Which tests should I run ?

Many apps are available and running well at the moment.

Just report your experience to the dev’s. They will be happy with your feedback.
Enjoy /e/

When will an Alpha-Build for the Xiaomi Poco F1 be available?
