we have been using ResurrectionRemix so far and would now like to switch to /e/ with 30 phones. Unfortunately /e/ is used with Android 7, which will probably not receive any security patches after the end of support for LOS14.1?! What is the status of the port to a higher version and will S7 be supported in the future?
Yes, unfortunately the Galaxy S7 “herolte” currently still runs under /e/ OS 7-nougat. However, you will still receive a security update, albeit with several weeks delay. Current status “Android security patch level” March 5, 2020. Other devices with /e/ OS 9 pie are one month ahead: April 5, 2020.
The migration from /e/ OS 7-nougart to 8-Oreo 8.1.0 is on the way and is currently being tested internally. It is expected in a short time.
/e/ OS 9-Pie is on the to-do list. This also means that the S7 “herolte” is still supported by /e/.
Thank you for the advice. Is it possible to test the internal pre-release? We’re trying to rebuild the system right now…
PS: Nothing special, we only focus on opensource and data security for the employees - that’s why /e/
Thanks for your answer. Of course a Pie update is something to do but since it seems still far away, I’d really need the oreo migration to take place since I want to use the new installer to install /e/ on a second hand S7. I’ve read that it’s better not to try to install /e/ nougat on an up to date smartphone.
