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

If you meant the builds for mata, poco and tissot then yes this week there was an outage in the build systems which has caused a delay.
Had responded in another thread.
Expect to get the official Pie builds for these devices early next week.

I meant for these:
Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 - a5y17lte -> pie
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 - chiron -> pie
Xiaomi Mi 5s - capricorn -> pie
LeEco Le 2 - s2 -> pie

Any news of thé S7 upgrade?
Additionally i’ve a s7 from e a’d No update (even sécurité) since 2 month

The testing of the S7 is still in progress. The team found some bugs which are being resolved. It may take 1-2 weeks more I guess to come out with a stable build which can be released.

The official /e/ Pie builds for the Beryllium Poco, Tissot and Mata are now available.
Thanks to the testers who helped with the testing

Now on to the testing of the next set of devices

Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 - a5y17lte -> pie
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 - chiron -> pie
Xiaomi Mi 5s - capricorn -> pie
LeEco Le 2 - s2 -> pie

Update: This set of devices have been tested and the official /e/ Pie builds should be available for download and manual flash early next week

It would be nice to see Mix 2S in the next batch. This is one of the best devices for eOS today, and technically it is very close to Poco and basic Mix 2 which already work on Pie.

@Manoj @e.follower I love this idea. Please add the Mix 2S!!

@manoj, so, for the volunteer testers who tested those mentioned devices,they just flash the new official pie build on the top of the test build manually. Erasing any partitions or not?

Currently i am on pie test but in the uodated i am getting on oreo build proposed. Will that change once i am on the regular pie build?

The testers have to wipe clean the device before flashing the official build. It will not work on top of the test build as it signed by a different set of keys.
This was clarified to the testing team on the testing channel itself.

If an Oreo build is showing up in the update of a Pie build then it is an error a bug that needs to be reported. Raise that as a bug and I will also let the build team know about it.

For S2, the test build is built on OREO!

hi @reyser pl can you raise this point in the testing channel if not already done. That way it can be addressed faster.

Looking forward to Pie on the LeEco Le 2 ‘s2’.

Thank you!

Is there any specific action plan for testers? I mean, some kind of step-by-step instructions on what they should check on their devices to make sure everything is working properly.

Yes they get a test plan against which they test the devices.

Hello just to say that the link to upgrade a5y17lte from nougat (/e/ nougat 0.7 2020031745615) to pie is broken : Upgrade a5y17lte to pie link

I wanted to have a try, but not today…
Tell me when it will be fixed.

To fix covid19 : stay at home !

Thanks for pointing that out. Will have that checked and fixed
Actually there is an issue with both the chiron and a5y17lte upgrade pages. There were some gitlab issues when merging earlier. Will have them checked and re merged.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Don’t worry everythings is OK.

In my eyes it is misleading, if at two places of the /e/ documentation - /e/ OS Information - Versions: pie and download /e/ for a5y17lte dev (pie) /e/OS 9-Pie is announced, but e-0.7-n-2020 build will be offered.An outcry from a new /e/ user follows promptly:

For a first impression it takes only seconds, as studies in psychology show. This first assessment is rarely correct - but it influences our behaviour.
