Hi all. After lots of crazy run around with the place that broke my screen, I managed to get service from another carrier, who also gave me a free phone. I now have a moto E phone, and under the info it states that the phone is a moto e5 cruise, which is currently running android 8, aka oreo.
I know that oreo isn’t supported yet, that that will be part of the 0.2 release of /e/. The list of supported devices does state the moto E, however, I’m assuming that my current version of the phone, with oreo on it, won’t be compatible if I try to flash it, unless the phone allows for backwards compatibility for an older operating system.
Can someone confirm this, so that I don’t end up trying to flash my new phone in a way that’s not compatible? I don’t mind waiting for the 0.2 version of /e/ to come out, but I wanted to make sure before trying to flash it and have things not work.
The older Nexus 5 that I was working with had intermittent service, and the phone app kept crashing earlier today if I tried to make a call or open the app, before I switched carriers. I’m not certain if this was due to the operating system on my phone, or the carrier and its terrible service. The phone app worked a few days ago, but there are voicemails on it that I wasn’t able to retrieve today. A few days ago, I was able to access the voicemail, so I’m not sure if this was due to the operating system or the poor service and its inability to download the voicemails appropriately.
