Will update of 8.1 continue?

Hi there,

 

as "Pie" is out, will 8.1 still be updated, hence the monthly security releases in new branches be tested and incorporated in the build guides?

 

Thanks

  Chris

Thx, but pretty sure that you confused something.

 

I am asking for the AOSP builds for den Open Devices.

Build instructions for 8.1 have been out for a while, but haven't been updated to August android security patch level.

Hence the question, if this will happen and will be done for future security patch levels.

I mean for the devices will not updated to Android 9? 

Like XZ and xzs they should be updated to 8.1 and the xzs must be updated to 9 because of Android policy updates, OnePlus 3 and 3T both Lanched in 2016 and will be updated to Android Pie 9.0. 

 

And how to contact with the Sony Mobile developers ? You see my post before few days ? About font style.

Re: Will update of 8.1 continue?

Hi,

the Open devices updates will continue for both Android 8 and 9 as long as it is possible for all suported devices.

We do not share the same roadmap and code as the Official software and we can not comment on the Sony updates.

Alin
