OS Upgrade - Volunteer Testers Required - Next Set of Devices for OS Upgrade

If done right no one can tamper with you device without you noticing it… At least with physical access…

That are really good news :+1:



Just a comment : looking for a new device for 5 years use, I notice that a lot of supported d/e/vices are 3, 4 years old or more. So, there factory’s support will stop soon…

A lot of more recent devices are not supported yet. May GSI be a way, to /e/, for extend support over devices with a better “life expectancy” ? And offer the /e/xperience with more recent android’s version ? To sold /e/phones, they have to be up to date…

That’s just personal questions… Thanks to all dev for the amount of work.

Thanks for your feedback @trefix. As you may have read in this thread these are some of the points we discussed last week. We are looking at the possibility of have GSI’s updated OTA. Which would make it a viable option for users with slightly old devices which are no longer vendor supported. With OTA users may have to flash it manually every time and that could be a tedious process. Installation of GSI through the easy-installer is another option we can look into.

Hej @Manoj, Is the end of this week, the 23rd calendar week of 2020, expected to be the end of a communication? Regards.

Unfortunately no decision on this as yet. The reason causing this delay is we have a long list of devices which we want to stop official support - reasons being the same as mentioned above. This delay is becoming a bottleneck for some other decisions. I will be discussing with the team on Monday (tomorrow ) and try to get a closure on this soon.

I think this is a good decision to streamline the list of devices. Of course there will be users unhappy with some decisions but focusing on the proper hardware is important.
Please consider having officially supported Phones, Notebooks (like the Pinebook, Olimex which work already) and also Tablets, so for every class there will be an alternative to choose from.
Also keep some older devices on the list if it’s possible (like Samsung Note, Nexus, etc.). Some of those are still in use by many people and it’s good for marketing if you can tell that google stopped support years ago but thanks to e they still work perfectly (protecting the environment and the users’ pocket).

Pinebook hasn’t been available for months, Olimex is a fun craft project. To provide manpower and resources for this means to save money elsewhere.

The devices list of the near future has to be reduced according to the available manpower and resources. As a one-man micro, small and sole proprietorship businesses, GrapheneOS shows that it can manage four devices of a device family with all its strength. The main developer of The LineageOS Project “haggertk” is similar.

So the calculation is a very simple one - and in the end about 25 - 30 devices for /e/ OS v1 can be considered. Some of them still have to be mograted to /e/ OS 9-pie.

Hi. I am mostly interested in unsupported devices (e.g. Suzuran) and devices currently stuck on Nougat (Condor, Sumire) because LOS have stopped supporting them from 14.1

I’m happy to build ROMs for these devices, and for other devices in a similar situation if requested. The important thing for me is that the officially supported / recommended build tools continue to work for these devices. So it would be good if, in the new world, there could be some kind of CI/CD testing of the backwards compatibility of these tools.

I realise this may be quite an effort but, to me the issue of keeping old devices functioning and avoiding the planned obsolescence of many manufacturers is very important.

Thanks for all your hard work in this area up to now :slight_smile:


Thank you. Please specify »officially supported / recommended build tools« so that I can go on the search.

Well according to the /e/ documentation, it’s Docker. I believe this is what is used to build supported ROMs and in the CI/CD pipeline.

It’s also really easy to use with cloud compute resources, which is helpful if you have an internet connection that takes a couple of days to do complete a repo sync :slight_smile:

Again I’ve left this rather late, but I would love to see support for Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact (lilac) See the specs on GSM Arena. It is compact (4.6" screen), waterproof, runs Oreo out of the box and is upgradable to Android 9.0 (Pie).

It’s not officially supported by Lineage, but there are several unofficial Lineage 17 ROMs availabe

»but I would love to see support for Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact (lilac)«

Finally the porting of /e/ Source code to Android Q / Lineage OS 17.1 has started. No ETA’s as yet on completion of activity. A new code base should be showing up soon … v1- Q :slight_smile:


LineageOS 17.1 based on Android 10 is officially available for following Smartphones:

Your list seems outdated, according to the xda thread beryllium aka (Xiaomi) Poco(phone) F1 is officially supported.

It is also written in the source you provided, there are weekly builds for beryllium.

:dark_sunglasses: Please clean your sunglasses and take a close look again. The Xiaomi Poco F1 (beryllium) leads the list of Xiaomi devices. By the way, not an XDA thread is authoritative but the given official LineageOS download source.

It leads the list of Xiaomi devices under Lineage OS 17.1: List Of Unofficial Supported Devices for months with "M"onthly OTA updates

beryllium is officially supported and has nightly (not weekly as I previously said) builds, here is the list of LineageOS 17.1 beryllium nightly builds link.

Do you recognize the two horizontal lines between which the Samsung Galaxy S6 to S8+ are placed? The indication "M "onthly OTA Updates refers to this.

Starting with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and following, the first-mentioned indication "N"ightly and "W"eekly OTA updates applies again.

Now I notice them but you can admit that a bolded line is way more noticeable than a

small separator
