Hi All -
I was very excited to trip across /e/. Excited to get started using it!
In the process of familiarizing myself with it, discovered I need to downgrade from Android 10 (or ‘Q’) to Oreo 8.1 if I want to start using /e/ soon.
However, I also read where /e/ for Android 10 is supposed to be coming out sometime in the next few weeks? Not familiar with build timeline…
So I guess I’m creating an informal poll:
Should I invest the time to downgrade now only to want to upgrade in a few weeks?
I’ve been using an iPod as a ‘smartphone’ the last couple of years and it works well. Downloaded an onboard GPS app called maps.me and use bluetooth to connect to a GPS receiver from DualAV. Keeps Google from tracking me
Moving back to this Android device is being done for just a couple reasons:
- tired of the small iPod screen
- I miss GBoard
- data access on the road is missed
- phone capability outside wifi will be nice to have back
I don’t have to have this Pixel running for the next few weeks. Should I just wait it out?
Happy to donate use of this Pixel for testing as long as we can keep it from bricking
Thoughts from the community appreciated.
