[LIST] Devices which will be getting upgraded to /e/OS T - Part II

Still no 1.20-t for FP4?

This will be the first time I upgrade /e/OS (on beyond0lte and gta4xlwifi). There is no upgrade manual on the device pages.

I assume I need to backup my data first and then upgrade by following the command line instructions for install. Correct?
How do I do the backup of my data?

Hello, If the upgrade is handled automatically through “OTA/OverTheAir” in-OS update then you will have nothing do except accepting the update modification.

I you want to upgrade manually, then make a full copy of your internal storage folder on a PC, then you may follow this guide (redundant partially with murena cloud data) and also use the seedvault integrated backup tool to try to recover some app data ( look inside this forum for a thread on the topic, I advise you to save the seedvault backup on USB stick or memory card, then to restore it, you need to go in the phone dialer app and type something like #restore# in 1-9digits)

Everything is explained in the weekly update, that’s where you should find the information (this thread is not really more than what it title says, a list):

Thank you, @AnotherElk . I did wait and just got the newsletter that /e/ is “thrilled to have Samsung Galaxy S7/S7+ models upgraded to Android 11!”
My phone still tells me I have the latest update. I guess I have to do it manually.
Can someone please tell me which build I need to use and if I have to backup everything if I install this build manually and upgrade to Android 11? As always I greatly appreciate all replies.
If this is the wrong thread to ask these things, I’m happy to ask somewhere else.

Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930F);
Android Version 10; /e/OS-Version 1.17-q-20231110351091-dev-herolte;

I received the Herolte OTA update yesterday and everything looks good.

The general guidance has been to treat this as a new install. So you should work on having a good backup. Our Upgrade pages were withdrawn.

I cannot unpack a full answer right now but as this question, except @Xxpsilon suggestion to go unofficial, is not about the T build (which in general has a different upgrade process) I think it would be a good idea to start a new thread and / or check whether a similar thread exists.

Good, but has nothing to do with the topic.
