Moto G5 is an unofficial version available as far as I know

Looking for the G6 as well. Is it possible to put a bounty on this phone?

sure, you can put a bounty


on it :joy::joy::joy:

Sorry guy for joking

:face_with_monocle: this wasn’t the bounty I was talking about… :laughing:

Hi @harvey186, I can’t see G5 on this list, can you? Maybe it’s under a name I don’t recognise.


Cheers :slight_smile:

Looking for the moto g6 too!

+1 for moto g6. I’d gladly use this is my main operating system. Plus I’d love to have a platform that has more complex support for PWA.

Yes!!! I’m using a Nokia 8 (TA-1004) as my daily driver, with unlocked bootloader! Would love to see e-Support for this device :slight_smile:

Actually - for the devs (As yall requested pretty clear information, here ya go):

Nokia 8 (TA-1004)
Brand: #Nokia
Stock Android: Android 7-9, Security patch 01-2020
Lineageos currently unofficial in project treble - see here: https://www.getdroidtips.com/lineage-os-17-1-nokia-8/
and here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/nokia-8/development/t-virus-infect-nokia-8-project-treble-t3946249
Current ROM is official
TWRP Support [see next post; new user can only post two links at a time…]

I have tried for quite a few days to install twrp, project treble (2nd link) and, with that, lineage os, but it hasn’t worked for me, as twrp couldn’t be installed. Could have just been me, though. I did manage to sideload another custom rom after that but I can’t find that link anymore.

Anyways I’ve installed /e/ on my S5 and it’s a blast! Would love to have this on my daily driver!
Much love for your project from switzerland :slight_smile:

Hi @tsda,

Thanks for the link, I hadn’t thought about installing a GSI on the Nokia 8 as it doesn’t support Project Treble. In fact, I’m not sure how much I think it will work without the T-virus mod (second link).

As for the second link, the author hasn’t been active since November 2019 in XDA, so I’m not expecting that mod to get developed any further.

I think, realistically, /e/ on the Nokia 8 is unlikely despite how much I would like it. If it is going to happen it needs a concerted, organised effort probably involving /e/, and I think they have more important devices to focus on right now.

Hi all,

Nokia 8.1 bootloader can be freely unlocked now, unofficially but using official methods: https://www.techmesto.com/bootloader-unlock-for-nokia-8-1-is-now-possible-via-the-official-platform/

No LineageOS though, so i presume that still rules out /e/ unless someone can make /e/ work directly.

Cheers :slightly_smiling_face:

I have the Nokia 8.1 with ta-1119 and also interessed.

Sorry for me badly englisch.

Greetings.
