Thank you so much! I’ve installed it and after a week of ‘standard’ use, I haven’t encountered any issues. Is there a possibility that you will update the version periodically?

Yes, will update when I find time.
Thanks for your feedback, would be great if you provide some feedback on this ROM-…

Thank you so much, it would be fantastic to have periodic support. I’d like to assist with the updates, but I’m not very experienced.

I’ve been experimenting with ROMs, kernels, and recovery since 2012 (I have memories of the first custom ROMs on XDA for my Samsung Galaxy S3). However, with work and other commitments, I lost some enthusiasm along the way.

A few weeks ago, I regained the desire to experiment with some ROMs (coming from LineageOS 20, I found /e/OS, and it was a pleasant discovery).

My LG G5 (despite having had 3 replaced batteries and serving me well for 7 years) still works perfectly, so it would be a dream to start updating it again.

Currently, I haven’t encountered any bugs. There are no abnormal battery drains, no reboots, and the camera reads both rear cameras. WiFi, LTE, and BT are working properly. Unfortunately, I can’t test the GPS as my internal antenna is damaged. Overall, for normal everyday use, I must say it works perfectly.

I’m available for any tests or other requests. If you need a hand, feel free to ask. Have a great day and happy holidays.

The installation of the e-Recovery T-1.17 and the ROM was simple and completely unproblematic.

It is very good that future updates can be made without a PC, because e-Recovery T-1.17 supports updating without data loss via adb sideload from the internal memory, external microSD card and USB-C stick:

  • Choose from internal storage
  • Choose from sdcard1 (microSD card)
  • Choose from usb (stick)

With TWRP Recovery, adb sideload can only be carried out using a PC.

Update for /e/OS-T 1.18:

If you are interested in build you own, I posted how-to’s here in the forum. For officially supported LineageOS devices building is pretty straightforward

The installation per e-Recovery T-1.18 & ROM e-1.18-t-20231221-UNOFFICIAL-h850.zip via USB-C-Stick was simple and completely unproblematic.

:sunglasses: Credit: Thank you @ronnz98 for building this new /e/OS-T 1.18 ROM.

@ronnz98 Would it be possible to have the latest updated version compatible with H850? Whenever you have time, no rush. Thanks again. :smiley:

For /e/OS-T ? For R h850 is still officially supported

[LIST] Devices which will be getting upgraded to /e/OS T - Part II


LG G5 (h850) upgrade build e/OS-T v1.20 is planned from mid-February 2024

Ah great! Less work for me :slight_smile:

Yes, I was referring to the T version since your release shared here in December (v1.18) was the only one that didn’t send the device into a boot loop compared to the official one. So, I was thinking of updating to 1.19. I now see that the device is expected in the official update to 1.20, so I can wait ;D
