Not much in the way of updates this week as the major chunk of the work happened last week.
Dev build : Released for all devices
A few devices are still to receive the build. Waiting for a consolidated list of devices where the build failed.
- If your device has not got the dev v0.17 build check if the build is available for manual download in the supported device list.
Stable build : To be released later today …awaiting an update from the team.
Check this guide for difference between /e/ build types
New devices 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)
These devices were due for release a few weeks back. Expect to be released this week.
Devices have a ROM Maintainer.. Moving forward we will prioritize release of devices which have ROM Maintainers as that makes it easier for us to maintain them.
June 18 Builds are ready for these new additions. We will have the Maintainer test them. Will be releasing them for all users early next week.
Dark mode implementation A number of users have reported issues with the Dark mode implementation. These issues are being taken up as part of the fixes for v9.18 Tentative ETA early July.
FP3/FP3+ Builds v0.17 removed
Some users complained of issues with the v0.17 FP3 build. The same has been removed from the servers. The team is looking into the issue and will restore the build once the bugs have been removed.
Issues on S8 stable
s8 users reported an issue with v0.17. This was identified as an error thrown up by the device due to lack of enough internal storage space for the update. Team is working on resolving this.
New additions to the dev and build teams
We have recently added a couple of team members to the build and development teams. Looking forward to a reduction in the delays that we usually attribute to lack of resources
Dedicated resource for failed builds
One of the newly joined team members is working on resolving issues which caused a few of the device builds to fail. This includes the Essential mata PH1 among others. Will share updates as I receive them.
Post will be updated as more inputs come in
