  • As mentioned the next important activity would be the start of the next sprint testing cycle for v0.15…Will be updating on it and sharing what will be in 0.15 through these posts.

What to expect in v0.15

  • A sizable number of bug fixes are coming in as part of v0.15
  • This will include builds for all the devices where the upgrade failed as part of these weekly updates.
  • We expect to start the testing of v015 early next week.

As always I will be sharing details of what will be tested and share a progress report of the testing through these weekly posts.

Stay tuned.

Please arrange to release the download links for /e/ OS ‘Q’. Currently only the 'O’reo ROMs are shown.

Thanks for pointing this out. The taimen Q build failed. The documentation has been corrected.

Oh, thanks for the correction. So it wasn’t worth the wait. That’s too bad though.

I had already prepared everything for the /e/installation, which means I had replaced GrapheneOS 11 2/2021 with Stock Android 10.0.0 8/2020.

Well, then back to GrapheneOS 11 with Verified Boot and Locked Bootloader.
