  • Check out the Release plan for /e/ R on new and supported devices

    List will be updated in case the build fails for specific devices

    :information_source: Installation Tip for /e/R

    Devices with Stock 11 ROM should flash the stock ROM first before flashing /e/ R .
    Pl note this will wipe out your existing data. Take backups if required.
    Manual upgrade is required as the default Updater application does not upgrade the OS and on detecting a different OS tends to block the installation. Read the next section for details

    To find your device codename you can run this command in the console of an adb enabled PC with you phone connected via a usb data cable

    $ adb shell getprop ro.product.device

Update 26 Nov We have released the builds for devices scheduled for week 46 and 47.

v0.19 release issue on S9 / S9+

Status: :red_circle: Work in progress

An issue was reported by some s9 /s9+ users on stable builds.

  • User devices got updated to Q but are stuck at the TWRP main screen . It also asks for a password to complete encryption.
  • For affected users, the only option available seems to be a factory reset. Which would cause data loss.

Hi @Manoj , what’s the status of other v0.19-R updates? Like v0.19-R for a5y17lte.
Best regards.

Hi @weichselbaumj it was still under testing when we ended last week. Will check and update the status in the main thread.

Hi @Manoj
Thanks for the regular updates and for being honest about the difficulties the team is facing.
It helps us users realise how big a task this is for you.
Keep up the good work and a speedy recovery to the one who was sick!:+1:


Thanks…he is back in action and has made the builds for last week and this…I am waiting for a review to be complete so that they can be released before end of this week.


Thanks for your efforts and for making this rom a unique project.
You are on the right track!


@Manoj Is the current status of the updates known, both in q and r?

You are checking for updates for which version …v0.19 ?

It is indifferent to me, I will put the one that updates first, since both are going very well.

The initial post is about the updates. If there is any change in status it would be updated in the same post. That way it is easier for users to get the information,

The OnePlus 7T (hotdogb) is listed as a build that failed. I see today that it is has documentation for installation. Is it good to go now?

Thanks for pointing that out. We released the build for hotdogb this week. I have updated the list.

That’s great! Thank you. I have a Oneplus 7T and have been eagerly waiting for it’s eOS release. A few newbie questions. Does WiFi Calling work on the 7T build and Voice over LTE? How do I go back to Oxygen OS if eOS doesn’t work well for me?

it is not the best place here, please search the forum.
if you don’t find an existing discussion, feel free to open a new topic

Has OnePlus 8T failed to build?

The 8T would be kebab I guess …Yes that device failed to build. Moved to week 52 to give some extra time to the developers to resolve the issue
