Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016 a3xelte) LineageOS no longer maintained

Apparently the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) is no longer maintained in the LineageOS project: Info about a3xelte | LineageOS Wiki

What does that mean for /e/? Is it likely that support for this device will be dropped as well?

Thanks :slight_smile:

However the device tree is maintained to Android 11 GitHub - LineageOS/android_device_samsung_a3xelte. We expect to see /e/ v1.0 at Android 10 by next month. Hopefully we will see Android 11 (it has been reported as being buildable).

I’m currently running android 11 on my A3 2016 (May security patch) as a daily driver. I’ve been using it for over a month now and its very stable, no hangs or crashes. Battery life is 1.5 to 2 days and phone is very quick in day to day use.

Where did you find A11 for the A3 2016?
My A3 2016 works with A10, it shows that the last Version from e/OS was: 1.17-20231110.

Try build 1/2024 by @ronnz98 /e/OS-R for Samsung Galaxy A3 (a3xelte)

Is this A11?
Is the A3 2016 out of date?
So there’s no automatic updates anymore?

Yes R is Android 11. For my unofficial build you wont get automated updates (OTA).
I try to build regularly for most used devices

It Works for me, THX,
I just install (over TWRP) the new Version without deleting all the stuff, I just clear Davic cache and cache.

I use this phone as a Daily driver on my Linux Mint machine.
I can watch TIKTOK and other Android Apps on my PC, it works perfect.
Pls tell me if you want to do the same, I can help you =).
