Status : Release starting on 31 July up to 7 Aug
- Release notes will show up here once we start the release
- Release has been moved to a Monday as we prefer to have the team present in case of issues. The builds are tested multiple times before a release but in case there are still issues we would rather have the team members present which would not be possible on weekends.
LG devices h918 and h850 have reported issues post v1.10. Have requested team to remove builds > v1.10 while a resolution is investigated
Status : Postponed to August along with v1.14
Team is working on adding firmware along with the T builds. This will make it easier for users to flash the builds without having to flash the stock ROM first.
- First list of devices getting the /e/OS T build.
- Builds will require manual download and installation by users. It is advisable to take a complete backup of data before any OS upgrade.
Status : Pending release
- Updated version of the Bliss Launcher
- A tablet with /e/OS T. Tablet name will be shared once we have the go ahead from build team.
ETA: To be announced
ETA: Estimated time of arrival - term used in software development to denote the estimated time when a product can be expected to be released.
- Please do not post information or links to /e/OS test builds on the forum.
- These builds are as yet untested and under development and may in some cases cause user devices to soft brick.
- Such information can confuse other users who do not see these builds in the updater.
- Remember not all users who come to this forum are experts in installing and formatting custom ROMs and can end up seriously damaging their devices by trying out these test builds
- If you are genuinely interested in helping with the testing activities and also understand how to fix and do some minor level of testing on custom ROMS, you are welcome to join the testing team
- As part of the testing team you can share your comments on the dedicated testing telegram channel.
Status : Released
Update 27 July
Version 18.104.22.168 has been released. Pl check the release notes
- Check this guide for help with the upgrade
Check the NextCloud version🤓 Some users were checking how they could verify the current NextCloud version?
- You can check the complete documentation and current NC version under https://murena.io/settings/help >> NextCloud xx user documentation. The xx should show 25 now
- Another way to check the current version is to check the NextCloud scan link and input https://murena.io this should display the current version number as well as the security level.
Please note if MurenaCloud patch number is not the same as the NC patch number, the rating would show up as bad This is not exactly a problem. We do not immediately jump to the next NC patch as soon as it is released. We first test it and then set out with the deployment.

- Frequently we see users complain about the GSI OS versions not being in sync with the ROM OS versions. As mentioned we do have developer bandwidth issues. If there are users who have development skills we welcome them to share their expertise and help speed up the process in the true spirit of an Open Source project.

What OS OTA upgrade means
Usually for /e/OS ROMs to upgrade the OS you have to do the following
- If available download the correct OS build from the supported device list
- For some devices you also need to download the stock ROM from the vendor site.
- Take a back up of your data
- First install the Stock ROM
- Next install the /e/OS ROM. Here you can take help of the install guides available on our documentation site.
- If required apply the backups you downloaded before starting the whole process
An alternate to this tedious process is where we offer the user the option to upgrade the OS OTA. This option is available for stable device builds only.
This process is easy for the user but requires a lot of development and testing effort.

All Nokia devices
- It is not possible to officially unlock Nokia bootloaders + lack of dedicated maintainer
- Google Nexus 7 2013 flox
- Device has partition size issues. Not able to build /e/OS ROMs for this device even with minimal build
Minimal build is a setting in /e/OS build which removes the following default applications (LibreOffice viewer, PDFViewer, Maps and Weather)from the source code and builds a smaller version of the ROM.

OS upgrade info specific to the FP3
- The FP3 OTA OS update from Pie to Q/R is not possible as encryption method changed on FP3 between Pie and Q/R. It is not possible to change the method while updating.
- The team spent a great deal of time on this, but has not been able to resolve this problem. For now, the manual process is the only way to upgrade the FP3 from pie to other OS versions.
End of official support for Nougat, Oreo and Pie😞 Pie, Oreo and Nougat the official /e/OS support has ended.
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.
