Fixes coming in v1.2
Once the fixes and testing is complete it will be released as v1.2
Future builds and milestones
If possible builds will be released in v1.1 or we will be released in v1.2
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.
We released a patch build for the FP4 last week which resolved this issue
FP4 users pl share feedback if any after installing the build.
- Samsung s9 / s9+
- Samsung s7/ s7+
- Samsung s8 /s8+
- ETA Sep end
- ETA not available. Will be planned after the release of the s8/s8+ OS OTA upgrade
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.

We plan to upgrade around 70+ devices to /e/OS S or Android 12. The /e/OS S builds are in the final stages of development and testing. Hope to release the devices in monthly batches of 20 devices.

Where ever possible, we will work on upgrading existing devices to ‘S’. Will share details on specific devices when I have feedback from the team. We have to check, if it is possible to upgrade to S or the next best OS version possible.
