[Z5 Compact] Android 8 AOSP

Hi,

 

I can't find the binaries for 8.0 (nor 8.1) for Z5 compact, do you intend to release them anytime soon so we can build Oreo for that device?

 

Thanks

Hi,

the msm8994 SOC is not supported by 4.4 kernel, the latest Qcomm kernel that supported msm8994 was 3.10

Thanks for the answer.

 

I'm probably not enough knowledgeable enough on the subject, but what's preventing the usage of a 4.4 kernel?

Re: [Z5 Compact] Android 8 AOSP

Hi

 

Do you mind breaking that down a bit for the relative layperson please?  What is it about the Qualcomm chipset that doesn't support the later kernels, and is there any prospect of there being a workaround in the future? What things may cause a problem if one did a non standard upgrade? 

 

Thx

It is supported, on Lineage OS some android phones/tablets with 801 and 810 have a version of android 8 available
