Today is the day! After a few months since the release of Android P in AOSP, we’re finally ready to release our first official build. In doing so, we’re starting weeklies as well.
The list of DU 13 supported devices include
Pixel XL (Marlin)
Pixel 2XL (Taimen)
Pixel 3/3XL (Blueline/Crosshatch)
Pixel C (Dragon)
Nexus 6 (Shamu)
OnePlus 3/3T (Fruitcake)
OnePlus 5/5T (Cheeseburger/Dumpling)
Moto G5 Plus (Potter)
Some devices (Nash, OP6 and OP6T) did not make the cut for DU13 but will hopefully join the line up for weeklies next month. This was mainly due to device specific issues that have yet to be worked out on those devices. Hopefully you can understand.
For those unaware of how weeklies work, let me explain. First of all, weeklies are done once a week (Thanks captain obvious) on Friday’s. This is with just 1 expectation. The week of a security update there will be no weekly but another official build. This means that if a security update is released in AOSP on a Monday, that following Friday an official build will be released since of a weekly.
Also, weeklies and official builds are signed with private keys. This means that you can not dirty flash these builds on top of anything else but builds signed with the same keys. So today if you want to try out the official build and you’re using an RC or an unofficial build you compiled yourself, you will have to do a full wipe in TWRP. That said, if you stay on this official build and next week you want to try the weekly, you can go ahead and dirty flash it with no problems or a full wipe.
If you run into any issues, please report them using JIRA. If you’re new to JIRA, simply create an account and follow the instructions on the site to create a bug report. The same applies if you would like to submit a feature request.
Last but not least, if you’re an unofficial builder and would like to join our team as a maintainer, simply follow the instructions in our ‘Notices’ Github repo. Developers that don’t want to maintain a device but would like to contribute as part of the DU team are also welcomed to apply.
We would like to thank all our contributors, past and present, who has helped this project to what it is today! Thank you!
