  • Bliss launcher upgrading and existing issue resolution
  • eDrive refactoring

Device Specific Announcements

:loudspeaker: Gigaset GS290
We have stopped the sales of the Gigaset GS290 on the eSolutionsShop as the vendor has stopped production of the device. We will continue support for existing users.

:loudspeaker: Teracube 2e
Users, please be aware that as of now the 2e is only compatible with Android 10 or /e/ Q build. This information is also shared on the 2e forum and on the /e/ install guide

  • While these issues are getting resolved, we have removed the 2e from the list of devices supported on the EasyInstaller

:crossed_fingers: Efforts to port new devices continue and details will be shared once we have working builds available.

:loudspeaker: Message being shared on the request of our vendor partners

  • Vendors whose phones we sell on our eSolutions Store do not directly sell /e/OS flashed devices.
  • The vendors only sell their devices with their own stock ROM.
  • To get pre flashed /e/OS phones, you have to purchase them from the eSolutions Shop.

This post will be updated through the week

Hi, I downloaded 0.22 OTA this morning for MIDO.
Download was completed but there didn’t come Install button as usual.

Can someone say where does /e/ os saves its OTA updates? so that i can install it manually.

Thanks

When a new version is released it is available in the install docs for your device.

It is hidden in the file system on the phone at (I think `data/lineageos-updates/.

There is an ‘Export’ function in the Updater App, which by default will move it to a folder /LineageOS updates (in either internal or external storage)

Hi, I’ve updated my OnePlus 5 this morning to 0.22.
I now have an issue where the settings app/menu keeps crashing when I try to open the network and phone menu.
Quite annoying since I normally use my sim2 for data, but I cannot configure it now.

Any ideas?

you or someone did post the issue to the backlog, I extracted the exception - Regression: Network and Internet settings crash (#4956) · Issues · e / Backlog · GitLab

Just update my galaxy S9 with version 0.22-q. Seems everything works well so far and even better since the sync with the document folder with /e/drive is now OK.

Thanks, this is indeed the same issue I have.
Searching for the specific function worked for configuring the right network for mobile data.

Looking forward to a definitive fix

Hello. I’m using a S9 and this week received a notification the 0.22 update was available. It was indeed listed in the sytemupdater. Back then I didn’t have time to perform that so cleared the notification. Today I wanted to update but it’s not listed in the systemupdater anymore. Refreshing doesn’t help. I did restart my phone yesterday. Not sure if that’s related. Fwiw currently on 20220124.103652 dev-keys,dev-release. Has it (temporarily) been removed?

We have put the build on hold due to this issue with dual sims. The dev team is checking this and will enable releases once we have a solution. Will update in these threads.

Thanks for the fast response.

Hi, Q 0.22 stable version for OnePlus Nord is not available for now. No problem, just a question: if the R stable version will be available, will it be possible to update directly from the updater in the settings? Or will I have to do a fresh install? Thank you

Hello @sceriffo

‘stable’ OTA comes always couple days after it was released to ‘dev’, if nothing comes up.
Check here: /e/ image ROM download
@Manoj Minor typo on the site. It says: “/e/ ROM latest dev build downloads” although it’s stable builds.

Regarding updating major version from Q to R, as of today you would need to do a fresh install. As mentioned above, major upgrades have been implemented for S9 and for other devices it will follow.

Ok sorry I didn’t know, I should read better. :grimacing: Thanks for the info! :+1:

I have asked the build team to correct this and there is an open issue around this. Will follow up with them to get this corrected.
