Week 20, 2022 : Development and Testing Updates

Builds and Releases


Status: :green_circle: Undergoing Testing

The next major milestone for /e/OS is the release of v1.0
With this, we will move out of the beta phase and release v1.0 builds for all users. This will not include Oreo or Nougat devices (refer to details in the Oreo and Nougat devices section below)

  • Milestone details here

  • Some issues in the gitlab may be marked confidential by their owners and will not be visible to all.

    :nerd_face: Issues get marked confidential as they contain user logs or user device information. At times when we are working on a new feature and not exactly sure if it will work, we mark it confidential during the development phase.

  • ETA for release 31 May 2022

  • The code name for this release is Alicante
    :nerd_face: We will not have a v0.24 as the build numbering will now start with v1.0

Answers to some queries around v1.0

  • A v1.0 release does not mean we will have no bugs pending in the /e/OS gitlab:disappointed:.
    Dev team will be prioritizing issues and will fix them. You can check the fixes coming as part of v1.0 in the milestone link shared above.
  • GSI builds will be available even after release of v1.0
    • Sources of last GSI release are available here

New devices being added, existing devices being upgraded

  • This is the list of devices we will add or the device codes of existing one that will be upgraded.
  • These builds will come along with the v1.0
  • OS version on these new devices will be /e/OS R

OS OTA Upgrade

s7 /s7 edge

Status: :yellow_circle: Testing

  • We are testing the OTA OS upgrade for s7 / s7 edge.
  • With the focus on v1.0 there is a slight delay here.
  • Do not have an ETA on the release as yet :disappointed:
    Update 16 May We expect to release the OS upgrade build of s7/s7+ in the first week of June after v1.0 goes live.

Oreo and Nougat devices

  • We will try to upgrade devices where possible. Builds failed for devices on these two operating systems. We may eventually drop support for devices stuck on Oreo and Nougat.
  • Users willing to take up the task of ROM Maintainers pl let me know.

ROM Builders - Unofficial and Custom

  • A new Docker image has been released
  • If you use Docker for your builds, upgrade to this Docker build before running your custom-builds.
  • Those building using traditional repo sync method refer android_prebuilts_prebuiltapks_lfs
    • You will have to install git-lfs (sudo apt-get install git-lfs)
    • After completing a repo sync, you will have to run repo forall -c 'git lfs pull'

  • 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.

  • We sell directly in EU, US, Canada.
  • Find details of what devices are available in which countries here eSolutions Shop.

Thanks for updating information again! One question which information could be included to first post.

Will v1.0 include ih8sn for all supported phones, or willl ih8sn arrive later to all or some models?

(asking cause at earlier weeks I assumed it would be included, but as of now, there doesn’t seem to be straight answer for this).

Hooray for adding new devices!

Great to see more new 5G devices on top of everything else!

The new devices / R build list goes into affect at this time too right?

Yes . The new device release will also happen along with v1.0 as mentioned in the initial post.

Manoj, is the Moto surnia on the 1.0 rc build list? I received Moto harpia builds, they’re the same architecture and are “Pie” Gen. If you want I can raise it on the backlog

All devices in the supported list (except those on Oreo or Nougat) will get the v1.0 build. surnia is on Q at present. Where possible, we will try to upgrade to R
