Does anyone knows if Lineage OS 16.1 will come out for the FP2?
Afaik there is already a developer build that works, so I’m pretty confident that it will.
That’s great news, couldn’t find any link so started to be worried
It might play a role here that the next version seems to be 16.0, not 16.1 .
OK well l’ll just wait
Any news? Would be willing to test…
I think you’ll have to ask @chrmhoffmann, the porter of LOS on FP2
Half a year ago he released this “trailer picture” on his twitter account:
Yes, please! I’d be up for testing as well (and throwing some cash if that helps ^___^)
Whilst things may have changed (and I would totally understand that), the last time cash was mentioned:
The first devices get LineageOS 16.0. But Fairphone is not on the list .
Would also be interested in learning when we can expect 16.0 for Fairphone!
Don’t expect! Hope for it and ask the developer how you can support him!
I guess at the moment we can all be quite lucky that someone was willing to make a port of Lineage to the Fairphone.
That’s a screenshot from the build I made yesterday based on @chrmhoffmann s initial changes. Everything seems to work fine and I’m running it on my normal phone now and will see if anything breaks.
For it to become an official build, selinux would have to be fixed and enabled again.
@z3ntu Is there a Github repo where we can look at your progress :)? Also is https://gist.github.com/justfortherec/7eae2341f5f46f93f1cabb91d96b525e included so that the nasty shutdown bug with new cam module can be fixed in LoS (15.1 would also be very nice).
??? Why did you withdraw this… happened while I was answering.
I guess https://review.lineageos.org/q/project:LineageOS/android_device_fairphone_FP2+branch:lineage-16.0 is mostly interesting, and yes I’ve also pushed to changes to some branch on my github profile (android_device_fairphone_FP2 and android_kernel_fairphone_msm8974 repos)
No, I was only made aware of that patch a few hours ago and I’m guessing Chris will push that change to Gerrit soon - or it’ll be merged whenever Fairphone is so nice and releases the kernel sources for the new releases.
Posted it in the wrong topic first and moved it here when I realized.
Dear Fairphone, please listen to that community whish, it would be awesome to help out :)!
Yep, got it on my other devices, a Galaxy Tab S2, and a S5, which uses also the Snapdragon 601 SOC and it works very smooth.
It will be released when it’s ready. No ETA is the motto of lineage.
We look forward to that day…
I saw you recently pushed out quite a large amount of kernel patches for the FP2, can you give some technical insight into what you are working on or where you got the fixes from :)?
