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

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

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Your list seems outdated, according to the xda thread beryllium aka (Xiaomi) Poco(phone) F1 is officially supported.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

:eyeglasses: You see! It helps to clean glasses.

Do I read this correctly, the Nexus 5 is therefore not supported by Lineage anymore ?

Does that mean that it might not get (re)-supported by /e/ os ?

Great news @manoj!!!

I think there hasn’t been updates for that nexus5 for over two months by now.

If the decision would be made not to migrate the Nexus 5 up I would like to ask for one final update that includes the new App store 2.0.

The old is really not very reliable e.g. crashes in the moment for me if I want to see the Firefox details, not install, mind you, just to see.

So the new Apps store would be great if that is possible.

I tested that on an old Nexus5 device and can confirm that the app crashes.

Hello. Is there any update, of which devices will be supported and the ones that will not be? I thank you.

Yes there is an update. Was just discussing this with the team. Will be publishing the details on this forum hopefully this week.
My plan is to release the test builds on this forum - say 5 devices at a time and have users with the devices test it. We also have a team of testers but here I guess the number of users will be more who can try and test.
Based on the number of downloads we can decide which devices to drop and which to continue support for, The popular ones - which work perfectly on Pie and also the most downloaded get to stay on the list.

Android Q may be coming in by end of this year hopefully. Work has just started on the code updates. So for the time being we will talk about Pie.
