LineageOS is an alternative operating system that is based on Android. At the moment it is the only option to get an Android-7-based #dic:rom on your Fairphone 2. An Android-8.1 -based release is in the making. This was mainly made possible by @chrmhoffmann, who did most of the porting, @snevas, who set up the OTA build server that facilitated updating to this point, and these great people.

Now the LineageOS port for Fairphone 2 is becoming officially supported by the LineageOS team.

PS.: Browse the tag #lineageos for more info on LineageOS.

PPS.: See the statistics chart by clicking the downwards arrow below (statistics taken from here):


Will LineageOS be officially supported?
Why is it so hard to support alternative (FLOSS) OSes?

Spoofing the statistics-call-home to make the Fairphone 2 #1 also allowed? :smiley:


#3

Come on, that would make the challenge too easy, don’t you think? :wink:


#4

If you like challenges, we can also propose a download challenge for Ubuntu Touch to mount it in the statistics…
On https://stats.ubports.com Fairphone2 is on the 7th place out of 11 devices… (to understand which device is behind its nickname: devices.ubports.com)

We’re up 14 places/47 installs and before the Asus Zenpad 8.0 :smiley:


#11

@Ingo, Could you or someone else update the first post again? :slight_smile:


#12

Uff, that was close! :joy:

Here is the updated chart:


#13

Do devices running the microG fork count into that number?


#14

A post was split to a new topic: Ubuntu Touch download challange


#15

Huh!? Huawei Ascend Mate 2 lost half of its userbase!?

compared to last week:

Fairphone 2 has become an evil phone: :imp:

Here is the updated chart:

At a constant growth rate of 7% we will reach 1000 active users in about 6 weeks (mid January).

Edit: At 1000 users we get detailed statistics about the version in use and the country of the user.


#16

Perhaps people move away because the device is not supported anymore.
But how does LineageOS count an “active install”? By phoning home?


#17

The official statistics page defines the counted devices as “active installs”. I assume that those are installs that are calling home to look for newer updates.

Ah, that must be it!


#18

Meh, the design of the stats page has changed. Mainly they are now just using the nicknames instead of the “human readable” names of the phones.

But we made the top #300! And it seems we passed the OPPO Find 7s which went down 28 installs.


#19

There are two stats pages:

(Open data :heart_eyes:)

Edit:

I feel somewhat stupid now :smiley:
