S7 / S7 edge OS OTA testing time

Same for me… Using an unofficial Pie build. But looking forward to official Q! Thanks for still supporting “old” devices.

Im also on a unoffical Build Nougat Q. But i’m also interesting on OTA Testing,
how could i go to your offical Q-Build?

Are you guys making good progress @Manoj ?

Still looking for testers. The more the testers, the better the results.

Hey :wave:
I’m having a S7 (herolte) here that is on the dev-branch of oreo.
I could install nougat and would volunteer for testing!

You can send a mail to testing@e.email and the team will add you to the group.

Hi @Manoj ,
I sent a mail at the testing@e.email 2 days ago. I’ve got just a few days to try the test process with no stress.
May I help?
:wink:
Thanks !

Yes you certainly can help. Did you get a response from the testing team? Sharing your details with them separately as well.

Thank you @Manoj , I did eventually.
I’ve just to get a Telegram account to be part of the group.
:wink:
Wish I could help !

Hi @Manoj is it already possible at this stage to estimate the release date of Android Q for the S7 ? I don’t have /e/ on my S7 and decided to wait until Q is out, to install it. To avoid too many moves, as I’m not very techy. (also, I would use the Easy Installer for best chances of success)

Will check and get back

Any chance to get it soon? Stock Android currently on my S7 is draining my battery in less than a day. I think /e/ can improve that (in addition to privacy of course)

Hello,
Any news of Q on herolte ?

https://community.e.foundation/tag/development-updates

Do I understand that the Q build for Herolte will be /e/OS v.1.0 ?

Will the data and configuration still be available after upgrade from Nougat to Q on the S7?

Backup, backup, backup everything!

@ronnz98
be prepared to re-install a number of apps like e.g. signal (if you use it):

be prepared to have issues with mobile data … APN settings may or may not be a solution:

as of now and apart from the above issues I did not experience other major issues regarding settings or the like (for instance all wifis and all account settings (imap, caldav, carddav, nextcloud…) are still available and functioning)

But it may be worth the wait for bugs being fixed :slight_smile:
