Hi Manoj, thanks a lot for clarification.
Currently, it is difficult to see which ports are community-based and which ones are officials. I’d suggest to visualize this within the list.
Finding a suitable used phone to test E is hard, since it is unclear how long each release will be maintained. Not long ago Moto surnia go off the lineage support list, as well as Nexus hammerhead. Even if i choose an older, still supported device, it could be off during the next months. What would you recommend?
great to hear that you work on a surnia release. Just one remark that worries me: The lineage device list became scarily short. Looking at https://download.lineageos.org/ there is only a small subset of https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/.
Even my beloved surnia was omitted an I have to find a new device, while the old hardware still works great :-/
For this, E’s dependency from lineage will bring a shorter device list quite soon, or am I wrong?
No ijust build unnoficial one /e/ rom its same as official but no ota updates support.
First link its maintained now devices, second all devices that ever had los
You dont need new device, when buildin /e/ all sources updates so you get latest features fom los and /e/ and lastest android security patches, but as your device not maintaned anymore so as mine (Redmi Note 5 whyred) so you dont get new kernels features from los and vendor security updates, but believe me, los and /e/ roms a pretty stable, and 100% better than your stock bloated and spying rom from your vendor. So you can build your own rom and you get all from /e/ except ota updates for every update you must build new rom, or if building is hard for you, install my rom even just to test it and see how /e/ run of your device.
