It took me a while to find software updates for the base operating system. These updates can be found in the Settings panel, under the “About phone” screen. Specifically, the item we need to look at is called “LineageOS Updates”. […] Earlier I mentioned updates to the /e/ operating system can be found under a section of the Settings panel under the heading of LineageOS Updates. This highlights an interesting issue of identification I kept seeing. On the surface everything is branded as “e” or “/e/”. But scratch the surface and we see the phone refer to itself as being “Powered by Android”, or as running LineageOS, or running Linux. For example, the “About phone” screen identifies the phone as Android 8.1.0 and LineageOS 0.7, running Linux 4.9.133 with SELinux enabled. The on-line cloud storage, on the surface, refers to itself as “e” and copyrighted by the “e Foundation”, but digging into some screens causes the portal to refer to itself as Nextcloud.
For people who never peek beneath the surface, these quirks of identity probably don’t matter. However, it is one of those little things that can confuse people when they are poking around or trying to get support. Hopefully the rebranding will become more complete over time. … more … 2
LineageOS version 0.7-o-2020010636666-stable-starlte LineageOS updates
In fact, this is really irritating and an extraordinary “slip”. words fail me…
By the way: By chance I came across this Lineage logo in my Galaxy S7 herolte.
I tap “System version³” several times and a LOS logo appears on /e/ background. /e/ e-loslogo.jpg
/e/ - a safe home for all your data
³Settings > About phone (Android 7.1.2) > System version
LineageOS wherever you look. I just want to see /e/, please.
