v1.0

Status: :green_circle: Released

  • v1.0 released on 31 May, 2022
  • Release code name was Alicante
  • Release notes

v1.0 build released on

  • R
  • Q

v1.0 was not released on

  • Pie
  • Oreo
  • Nougat

:disappointed: 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. 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.

Issues that were reported on v1.0

  • OnePlus Nord avicci Qualcomm CrashDump Mode - reported by only some users on forum - issue on gitlab
  • AppLounge - bugs + feedback +Improvement suggestions in Gitlab
  • Issue with Contacts app - On forum - in Gitlab
    • All Issues are under development

    • Note : The older OS builds will not be visible on these devices as the builds would on Nougat or Oreo and can confuse some users.

Upcoming OS OTA upgrades

  • Samsung s8 /s8+
    • ETA Sep end :crossed_fingers:
  • FP3
    • ETA not available

:nerd_face: OTA OS upgrade means the upgrade to a higher OS level. Updates will be delivered Over the Air (OTA). The OTA upgrades are available on official builds only. Users who have unofficial or custom builds will not get the notification to install the upgrade build. They will have to manually download and flash the Q builds once they are released.

Hello,
To sync /e/ repos for custom building, is there a special tag for the latest version (like v1-r before) since v1 officially exists ?
Thanks !

Will a tag from this list meet your needs? Tags · e / os / releases · GitLab.

Right now, I suspect tags are lagging what Lineage would call a “nightly build”. However to be fair the latest tag is only 2 hours old, that is ahead of anything released for testing.

Hello,

Bug call FP3.

Since the V1.0.1 for FP3, when i call someone, this ones said hears me badly.

Have a good day.

Hi all,

I don’t know if it is a regression or not, or if it due to the new emergency update for the FP3/FP3+. While trying to send mms, which I wasn’t able to do, I wanted to check the settings whithin the message app. But then, the app is always crashing. Restarting the phone doesn’t make it working.

Does anybody see that already or experience it as well ?

Hi! I find v 1.1 for FP4. Is it stable? I understand it is still in testing. Thanks.

Seems that way … https://images.ecloud.global/stable/FP4/.

@Manoj: The heading of this stable build download page says “dev build downloads”.

Many thanks, I will save this link for future.

That’s ok.

Thanks to eFoundation team.

Released but nothing on my Fairphone 4 for now :confused:

Try the manual update in system updates, i see the update on fp4 but havent had time to install yet

I did it, I refreshed but nothing happen

As yet the v1.1 release has gone out to stable build users. The release for dev users is pending.

Okay I understand, it’s for that I haven’t yet. Thanks @Manoj :slight_smile:

Hi @Manoj,

Is there a FP3/FP3+ stable build v1.1 or, with the emergency update, the version tree will join up later on v1.2 ?

Thanks

1.1-q dev is out following 1.0-q dev from June 22 (aka 1.0.1), if that’s any indication.

Maybe an upgrade to the just released version 1.1 would fix the problem.

@Manoj

Just checking if 1.1 (dev) is supposed to be released for R for lake. It’s released for Q. (Just making sure the build did not fail for all of the Motorola devices on R).

Dev builds have not been released for R for any of the devices. Should be released early coming week.
