OS OTA Upgrade

s7 /s7 edge

Status: :green_circle: testing to start

  • As promised earlier, we are now starting the testing of the OTA OS upgrade for s7 / s7 edge.
  • Need volunteers who can help with this testing.

:crossed_fingers: We are using the experience gained from the s9/s9+ OS OTA upgrade exercise to develop upgrade builds for other devices. First preference would be devices we sell on the eSolutions Shop. No ETAs as of now for this activity. We are now testing the s7/s7 edge as mentioned above

GSI

The GSI build issues have been fixed and v0.22 has been released.
GSI sources are available here

Nougat Builds

We have been facing build issues on multiple devices which are still exclusively on Nougat OS. We will attempt to upgrade all these devices to the latest OS version where ever possible. We are testing the upgrade on the s7 as mentioned above. For the other devices we will attempt to make Q or R builds, if these attempts are not successful, we will inform the users and stop maintaining those devices. This would mean that the build versions will not be updated or bugs specific to nougat will not be fixed.

Development Activity

Status: :green_circle: In Progress

A summary of issues dev team is investigating or working on

  • Bliss launcher upgrading and existing issue resolution
  • eDrive code refactoring to optimize the application
  • Updating Applications where forked …ongoing task
  • Comprehensive updates to the AppStore…nearing completion
  • EasyInstaller to adapt to upgrade OS builds…investigation only

This is a subset of what the team is working on. Most of these tasks are under development and testing phase. Some of the issues will be confidential and not visible to all users.

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

: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.

:loudspeaker: FP4 back in stock

We have received additional stock of FP4 devices as of last week. Those interested in purchasing should do so on the eSolutions Shop …while stocks last

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

Which device are you referring to? Usually the stable builds come out a week after the dev builds.

Should be soon. The build is nearing completion. Will update here once I get a confirmation that it has been released.

The stable build FP4 R v0.22 should be available shortly. It is being published to the servers and should be available OTA within an hour :crossed_fingers:

I am not able to flash the current GSI (the previous one worked, following the instructions on How to /e/ on a non supported device?). Fastboot stops after pushing the first chunk saying:

(bootloader) Preflash validation failed
FAILED (remote failure)

Is this a problem with the GSI downloaded, or with my system?

Thanks for sharing the issue. Will ask the developer to check this error and get back with his response.

The developer was checking if the installation instructions as per the guide were followed?

@Manoj Yes, I did as the instruction says, even downloaded once again, just to be sure. Other GSI images from phhuson can be flashed without problems on the device…

Edit: Also the previous img 0.19 can be installed without problems. So I guess the file of 0.22 might be corrupted somehow?

Thanks for the details @Edmund …passing on this to the developer
