My Motorola G7 Plus “REVVLRY +” is on Q and therefore stuck at /e/ 1.8.1.
I want to upgrade to S to stay current. I reviewed the instructions at https://doc.e.foundation/devices/lake/upgrade but it’s not clear to me what the correct steps are.
Specifically I am confused as to whether I need to install the stock S ROM first, then upgrade? Wouldn’t this erase all my apps?
Or can I just install e-1.10-s-20230413279105-dev-lake.zip over my current version and keep all my apps?
Also it’s not clear to me what the recovery image is for (recovery-e-1.10-s-20230413279105-dev-lake.img).
Since this phone is my daily driver I can’t afford to screw this up.
Ideally I would like to upgrade and retain my apps & configurations. For example I have a gmail account set up in Bluemail that I use daily, however since google eliminated less secure logins I can’t add any new gmail accounts. I am concerned I will lose access to my main gmail account that’s working if I have to reinstall everything including Bluemail.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Especially if you’ve been down this road on a G7+ “lake”.
