I would be very happy if eOS for the Realme 8 is offered by you =).
I am a big fan of eOS and use it on various smartphones =).
The Realme 8 is a great phone with an Amoled display that is offered at a fair price. Unfortunately, the support for the stock Rom will expire soon.
The operation is very fast, everything responds immediately, I have never had such a good phone.
Modell: RMX3085 / Realme 8 4G
All supported Android versions: Realme ui 2.0/ Android 11 / Realme ui 3.0/Android 12
What other ROM is it currently running : LineageOS 19 @Android 12L
It is maintained from Realme and LineageOS.
Is the current ROM official or unofficial?
LineageOS 19.1 Android 12
bengris32 and SayuZX should be involved (or, at least, informed) to us:
Anyway, if you wanna quick-test, give GSI a chance:
“Issue” (=req) opened → [REQ] \e\ and Colab autobuilder · Issue #1 · SayuZX/device_realme_RMX3085 · GitHub
Eventually the boot.img of the Realme 8 (RMX3085) accepts Stock Android 11, Realme UI 2.0, no Android 10 based /e/OS-Q GSI (Android 10).
To be on the safe side, I would try to downgrade to firmware Android 10 Stock ROM version RMX3085_11_A.26 and only then install the /e/OS-Q V1.4 GSI (Arm64 A/B (system-arm64-ab.img.xz).
Another realme 8 user here.
Before working from home, I was working at a German retailer, selling smartphones.
That said, I also know, what a decent phone is like.
And I’m loving the realme 8, just as Jules16_06 does.
So far, two of its users have found this forum.
The rest is going to follow, eventually.
It is an absolute necessity of having FOSS, like /e/OS, on any device, that runs software.
How can one help getting /e/OS working on the realme 8 especially?
Is there a Liberapay campaign or something like that, to help funding the development by Murena?
If yes, where can one find it and donate for this particular port, @forart.it @anon29344687 ?
The device’s system information, in my case:
“realme UI 3.0 | Android 12 | RMX3085_11_C.16”
Thanks in advance.
PS: Keep up the great work, as it has an enormously important impact on society.
Also, this forum offering 2FA is awesome. So, thanks for that, as well.
There are some unofficial LOS builds @ XDA: https://forum.xda-developers.com/f/realme-8.12169/
…and some (re)sources @ GitHub too: https://github.com/search?q=RMX3085
Keep in touch with maintainers and try to ask them if they can build \e\ too.
Good luck !
