OS OTA Upgrade: Delayed
Testing has been delayed by a month. As we are working on adding location specific firmware to the build.
New Device addition : Delayed
As we have a backlog of devices from week 21, 22 I am holding the release of Week 23. No point in adding to the backlog as there are devices from the previous week still in the queue.
The reason is we need to add the device specific files to the /e/ build system. Our ROM Maintainers do not have this access as yet to do this themselves. There were some modification to the build system which was due last week on Friday. Do not have an update if they went through.
The developer who was assigned to work with the Maintainers was busy with the next task in this list.
Devices planned for release : LG G4 (h810_usu) , LG G4 (h811) , LG G4 (h812_usu) , LG G4 (h815) , LG G4 (h815_usu) , LG G4 (vs986_usu), Samsung J5 (j5y17lte)
Teracube 2e encryption: In progress
Developer is still working on this.
9 June Update The encryption post install on the 2e is solved as per an update I got yesterday. Will share more details on this.
Recommendations for preinstalled /e/ phones
A post with recommendations for Preinstalled /e/OS phones has been added to the forum. This list is specific for US and Canada.
All points will be updated during the course of this week.
I’ve built and am using v.17 on mata. The first build failed and gave me a vendor error. Added ( -e “INCLUDED_PROPRIETARY=true” ) to the script and build completed. Thanks to everyone at /e/ for the work they are doing.
Is the “chrome invalid certificate” issue solved when using web logins like in Amazon Alexa app? Also, some apps come back with error after fully displaying what they are supposed to (like Wells Fargo banking app, Amazon shopping and eBay app)
I received a notification that there was an update (0.17), so I downloaded and installed it.
However I got stuck in TWRP, every time I tried to Decrypt Data it failed.
Failed to decrypt data.
Unable to decrypt with default password. You may need to perform a Format Data.
After giving up on the password it seems the process continued (it happened so quickly I couldn’t catch the processes). It almost looked like it was loading a recovery or back up, so I thought I would end up back with the stock ROM, but to my surprise the update worked and the phone booted into /e/ and under System updates it says 0.17.
Just thought I’d share my experience and hopefully you can help me confirm that the update was a success and I have nothing to be concerned about
For anybody to confirm that you would need to say which device you have exactly .
From your description of the process I don’t see anything wrong concerning the update.
TWRP tries to decrypt an encrypted data partition … that’s normal.
The data partition isn’t involved in an OS update, so you can cancel the decryption attempt at the password prompt or TWRP doesn’t even manage to decrypt because TWRP doesn’t support decryption on every device … no issue for the update here either.
After that TWRP would usually run the OS update … this seems to have worked for you.
TWRP will give status messages, they will include something like “patching system image unconditionally” as far as I’ve seen, and this process will run for a moment … but how much time this would need exactly might heavily depend on the device, and whether this could be called quickly then might depend on individual perception .
Ran system update on my Samsung Galaxy A5 and it went smoothly and extremely quickly. Took maybe a total of 15 minutes to download and install. Only been using /e/ for about 2 weeks now but everything has been great so far.
