This is my first post. Just found out about this project today. I looked on the supported hardware list and found several Motorola G7 models supported but they are all XT196X models. It didn’t list any XT195X models. There was also a Beta tag on the listing. I’m looking to see if there’s any support for my model and if anyone has tried to load it with /e/. Also wondering why it’s listed as Beta.
Did a search and found my answer. Sorry for the extra posting.
Anyone else looking for this, you should look at the post titled “E on moto g7 now installed”.
In it Manoj replies “Devices already with official LOS support are easy to build and will all get on the supported list. I think Moto G7 power is also supported so should be getting an /e/ version as well. Do not have the dates as yet.”
So, bottom line is anyone with a G7 Power just has to be patient and wait for the build.
the unofficial one is working, no need to wait
Just installed it, works well, no issues. Thank you!
Wow, not my experience… Don’t you have calls blocking the screen in darkness? I.e.when making or receiving calls, I can’t see anything after hitting call or answer, respectively… I have about 3or 4other issues (posted in that link above if I recall, if not, I’ll edit), but ultimately none are dealbreakers… Official support would be cool though
Hi E-love, When I initially installed E on the G7 I did not setup a security password or screen lock and had no issues. Since then I have added a password to the phone and it does get in the way after connecting a call. I should have logged in and updated my comment. The calls still hang up okay, I just cannot get to the hangup button. That is the only issue I have noticed on the G7, I do not have any issues on the G7 Power. Before I installed E I I did a factory reset on the phone, it was a clean install.
Huh OK gotcha
I also did a clean install… I’ll try without a password and see of that helps…
Tried it, but no go, dark (unresponsive) screen during calls persists
So I installed this on one of my G7 Power’s and have had no issues. Calls are fine but I have no password set up and did an install after factory reset. I had to switch back to my other phone because of apps I needed for work I haven’t installed yet. I’ll see about switching back and seeing if I can duplicate your issues.
Just to be clear, are the issues on the G7 Power or the G7 or both? Not too clear from the posts.
Oh nice you got it working!
G7 power from metro xt-1955-5
Wow, and now texts are coming to the wrong threads… This is interesting
I am having the password screen in the way issue on G7 but not on G7 power.
Resetting messages cache worked for messages
Screen issue no longer! Idk how that happened,but I think the first time it worked may have been on signal, then others started working, although if I recall some were stubborn for a bit… Now signal has echo issues though where it didn’t before (and I’ve read soenine else have similar problem)
Will post back in other thread too
