Upgrade your device :information_source:

  • As mentioned previously we are dropping support of multiple OS versions on the same device.
  • Upgrade your device to the latest OS version available. For example if /e/OS R (Android 11) builds are available for your /e/OS Q (Android 10) build, upgrade to the latest version which in this case would be A11.


Support dropped :cry:

/e/OS support has been dropped for these devices

  • All Nokia devices
    • It is not possible to officially unlock Nokia bootloaders + lack of dedicated maintainer
  • Google Google Nexus 7 2013 flox
    • Device has partition size issues. Not able to build /e/OS ROMs for this device even with minimal build

:nerd_face: Minimal build is a setting in /e/OS build which removes the following default applications ( LibreOffice viewer, PDFViewer, Maps and Weather )from the source code and builds a smaller version of the ROM.

OS upgrade info specific to the FP3 The FP3 OTA OS update from Pie to Q/R is not possible as encryption method changed on FP3 between Pie and Q/R. It is not possible to change the method while updating. The team spent a great deal of time on this, but has not been able to resolve this problem. For now, the manual process is the only way to upgrade the FP3 from pie to other OS versions.
End of official support for Nougat, Oreo and Pie 😞 For Pie, Oreo and Nougat the official /e/OS support draws to a close.

Reasons for dropping official support are:

  • newly released applications like App Lounge, Advanced privacy code has not been customized for these OS versions.
  • lack of dedicated ROM Maintainers
  • no support upstream (Lineage dropped support for Pie sometime back)
  • device trees will continue to exist in the Gitlab and users with build skills can create custom ROMs on these builds
  • Security patches and vendor patches for the Pie, Oreo and Nougat code will be updated based on availability.

:nerd_face: Google stops security patches for OS after some time. Similarly, Vendors drop support for older models when they release newer models in the market. Then it depends on developers from various communities to backport the patches.

Device and Vendor 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.

  • The vendors only sell their devices with their own stock ROM.

Hi Manoj,
interestingly yesterday I received via the usual in-built OTA update function on my GS290 a build that comes with the upgrade to A11 (R): 1.10-20230412278811. This can not be found on neither https://images.ecloud.global/stable/GS290/ nor https://images.ecloud.global/dev/GS290/. Looks like I unintentionally became a tester for the A10->A11 upgrade. However, this build runs fine up to now; issues observed: minimal display brightness is not dark enough; displaying the data transport speed does not fit the camera notch (upper center; has been an ever since). Any information what happened and if I am on the right update track?

The GS290 OTA OS upgrade build from Q (A10)→ Android 11 (R) has been released as of yesterday. The upgrade builds are only available OTA or will show up on the Updater app. You are on the right track.
The manual download builds for some devices are still to be uploaded on the server and should be available by end of 26th

I updated my daughter GS290 to 1.10 R Stable, everything’s fine!

Also updated my FP4 and my spouse’s one to 1.10 S Stable. Perfect as well!
Just had to clear cache and data of “Notes” app and reopen again 'cause it initially failed to sync to the standard Murena account right after the update.

Thank you very much and congrats to the whole dev team. I notice that /e/OS has continuously improved and gain stability over the last 2 years! :slight_smile:

Thanks for the feedback on the GS290 OTA upgrade build @stanwood @knechtoschi

I noticed that the stable R for OnePlus 7T hotdogb got 1.10, but still no S for stable. Is that still on it’s way?
