/e/ R rollout
Pleased to announce that we have released the devices we had promised to add or upgrade to /e/R as part of the plan.
The statistics speak for themselves
to the team members who made this possible and an even bigger thanks to the users who shared their feedback for the builds.
The one device we have removed from the build is OnePlus One bacon. We had multiple partition size errors while build for it. Will have to take a call if we can continue support for this device or stop it on nougat and put a flag in our documentation, mentioning it is no longer supported.
This year we will come out with a new list which will have names of devices we will upgrade the OS on or new devices we will add to our supported list.
There is a massive App Store update in progress. It is still under development and testing stage, so cannot share more details. It will impact all these points as well. Will share ETAs once we are sure the code changes work.
If I remember right, then R is already out for fp3. It’s just not available OTA, you have to use the Easy Installer, but eventually lose your data if you’re going to update this way. Either backup your whole phone or wait to see what functionality the OTA update might bring
Just got the OTA update on my S9 and everything looks good so far! A couple of small things:
the upgrade messed up with my alarm settings so be wary of this if you need to be up in the morning basically the alarm sound got set to 0, I don’t know if it’s something I did or a default value in the update.
NewPipe does not work anymore (it fails to load anything). Again don’t know if the problem is newpipe or the upgrade.
the ability to swipe between pages in systems app (clock, phone…) Is gone, is this intended?
In any case, thanks for pushing this update, very happy to have it regardless of these issues !
