I just got my new zenphone 8. Turned it on and was going to update 11 before install E/OS and then it updated to 12. The install guide says it has to be on 11. Is that going to be a problem? I looked at LineeageOS site and they are saying to use 12. Anyone know?
The Zenfone 8 has to be on android 11 to install eos, as per instructions. Eos is currently based on android 11 and that’s the reason why.
LOS have upgraded many device to android 12, including this one, so Lineage 19.0 (and LOS4microG) requires android 12 to be on your device as the base os.
It will be some months before is is rolled out to 12; it’s a big task!
Ahh that makes sense. Thanks for the response! How would i get back to 11 if i already installed lineage os 19.1 on 12?
I don’t know and I have not got this device; but I’m interested in it for it’s size (not too big) and potential for relocking bootloader (not under e or Los though).
Closest thing I’ve seen to getting back to stock 11 is covered as part of this this XDA thread: Post#2
i am alson suffering from this situation on my site an about the bills
Hi, I have a similar issue but my brand new zenfone 8 automatically installed Android 13 without asking me. Do I need to downgrade to Android 12 before installing /e/OS? I just want to double check before starting. Thank you, Patrick
I downgraded and installed e/OS/. All is good.
