End of official support for Nougat, Oreo and Pie

: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.

:nerd_face: 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.

:loudspeaker: Gigaset GS290

  • We have stopped the sales of the Gigaset GS290 on the eSolutionsShop as the vendor has stopped production of the device. We will continue support for existing users.

:loudspeaker: Message being shared on the request of our vendor partners

  • 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.

:loudspeaker: /e/OS Pre flashed device sales

  • We sell directly in EU, US, Canada.
  • Find details of what devices are available in which countries here eSolutions Shop.
  • In Australia we do not sell directly. You can purchase preflashed /e/OS devices from this site

:loudspeaker: Murena One released
A phone from Murena with /e/OS installed has been launched and is available for purchase. Check the device specs here

Expect more device releases from Murena in future :grinning:

:nerd_face: Murena is the brand name and /e/OS is the Operating system.

Just for the information of my fellow FP3 users on dev: I am now (this CET morning it wasn’t available yet) getting offered the delayed 1.2 update through the System Update(r). I for my part will only download and install it tonight though because I’m planning to spend a long afternoon out today.

If infomation above is for FP3+, why do we then have different versions?
I have 1.1-20220705201319
And are offered /e/OS 1.2 25 July 2025?

Yes, I actually have an FP3+. Are you on dev or on stable? Users on stable got 1.2 several days ago.


  • e-1.2-q-20220729-dev-treble, now available here

1.1-q-20220705201319 is the stable release channel (or build type) …https://images.ecloud.global/stable/FP3/.
1.1-q-20220708202053 is dev … https://images.ecloud.global/dev/FP3/.
That stable came out earlier than dev in this case was an anomaly.

See about the different build types here … Different Build Types
