Request @ /e/OS Build Team: revive builds for Xiaomi Redmi 4x / santoni and 3s / land? LineageOS support revived (LOS20)

Hello @ /e/OS Build Team,

as the last builds of /e/OS for santoni/land are quite outdated and LineageOS has revived their builds (device Mi8937) on LOS20, can and will /e/OS restart support as well?

Thank you in advance.


Note: tried to add links for further details, but this was not possible?

raise this in the most current development-updates entry or the gitlab backlog to clarify how the variants of Mi8937 can be accessed. They used their device names santoni/land in the past, not sure if for A12 it should be at Mi8937/ now (like at Mi8917) or device codenames still.

The Mi8937 target is incorporated in s-dev-builds - maybe the variants pose an issue?

This seems a work in progress for the /e/ dev team, but contributors here are asked not to link testing builds (which I now found). Owners of these devices with some experience of custom ROMs might consider making contact with the testing team

Regarding “lineage” codename Mi8937

I find a device tree at Lineage19.1 and Lineage20 here

The devices which are expected to run on a Mi8937 build are listed here

… a quick copy of that info
Xiaomi Redmi 3S
Xiaomi Redmi 3X
Xiaomi Redmi 4 (India)
Xiaomi Redmi 4X
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime
Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Prime

Following up @tcecyk’s second link:

  extends: .trigger-build-dev
    DEVICES: "... Mi8917 Mi8937 ..."
    BUILD_BRANCH: "v1-s"

Off topic, but … /e/ has successfully followed Lineage in the case of “Lineage” devicecode Mi8917

Glad to see that my old - but still working - Redmi 4X received A13 but I would have preferred to have it for the A2 “jasmine_sprout” instead…
