It took me a while, but the official website just got a nice update:
You can now check on the website before downloading if Free-Droid will work with your device! This should prevent a lot of disappointment after downloading 120mb, waiting for Free-Droid so prepare and struggling with drivers (windows only
) just to find out that the device is unknown or whatever.
After entering your device model on the Website, behind the curtain a check is done to find
- the codename of your device
- the brand of your device
- available roms known to Free-Droid
- available TWRP image known to Free-Droid
If the codename can be identified, the brand is supported by Free-Droid, a TWRP image and a rom are available, then you will be notified that your device is compatible. If one criterion is not met, you will be notified with a suggestion to help.
For now the website only shows compatible/not-(yet-)compatible, but I plan on having the website provide more precise feedback to the user and tell which criterion(s) are not met. This would make it easier for the user to know how to help .
