There are a couple of issues raised about this
- 1116 Supporting old devices not viable due to security issues
1115 Availability of security patches from LOS
(These have been given the label Handle end of Nougat support)
I understand that /e/ cannot support devices which are no longer supported by LineageOS but, at the moment it is (sometimes) possible to build unofficial Nougat ROMs for these devices.
Can anyone tell me whether it will continue to be possible to build unofficial Nougat ROMs going forward or whether users of these devices will be stuck with the latest ROM - official or unofficial - released before support is ended?
