A few weeks ago I was able to get /e/ working sucessfully on a Samsung Galaxy S4 (jfltexx). I am now working with a Motorola Moto G4 Plus (Athene). After several false starts, I was able to get it working properly with a “stock” Oreo (Android 8.1) ROM from XDA-Developers.
I had tried two or three different flavours of LineageOS as well as a Pie (Android 9.0) variant, ArrowOS, but none, I repeat NONE were fully functional - specifically, in each case the camera failed to work properly.
I almost lost hope when I was unable to restore the device to its original state with the TWRP backup I had made of the OEM Nougat (Android 7.0). Fortunately, when I tried again after getting into trouble on yet another custom ROM, the “nandroid” (full system image) restore worked. Not sure what I did differently the second (3rd?) time !
In any case, armed with the certainty that the device, including the camera, could function properly with a stock ROM, I searched for a stock Oreo (Android 8.1) version and found one. On the second attempt (having screwed up the GPS the first time with over-zealous use of root privileges to remove unwanted Google apps ) the device is up and running and Magisked (rooted). Hallelujah!
After this somewhat long-winded introduction, my question is - can anyone confirm that they have the Oreo version of /e/ fully functional on the Moto G4 Plus (Athene), including especially the Camera ?
I realize it is in the list of supported /e/ devices but, after the saga I’ve been through,I want to be sure [ Pardon my scepticism ! ]
