Operating Systems that nobody is working on porting to an FP yet can be found in :bar_chart: this poll. Please add other OSes you are interested in there instead of this wiki, until someone is working on them.

Fairphone 3

Fairphone OS

  • latest official release: ??.??.? (Android 9 Pie)

Other OSes

  • Open OS is “on the roadmap” for the FP team, but it’s too early to speculate when it will come out
  • Alternative OSes ported by the community are a possibility with the unlockable bootloader and I’m willing to bet that these OSes will be ported sooner or later:
    • Lineage OS
    • /e/ (based on Lineage, so probably soon after Lineage)
    • Sailfish OS
    • Ubuntu
    • others
