Is my SODP based LineageOS Port still needed or are the users moved to PixelExperience or the stock based LineageOS which both are official and receive OTA updates?
If yes, I will EOL the SODP based LineageOS port and focus on other stuff.

So xz2 got official Lineage os.Can we expect also for xz3?

Sadly to get an official LOS based on stock it is needed to own the XZ3 as a hardware.

Is my LOS port really needed?
Then we need to find a solution, I would like to focus on a single rom where a version for the xz2/xz2c/xz3 is needed and the xz2/c part is now replaced by the official supported & stock based LOS.
Just because I like variety and hate to reinvent the where if I build unofficial builds for a ROM where an official support exist.

There is also AOSP and the official Pixel Experience with OTA updates.

Since we have now an official LineageOS based on stock, this ROM would be double work.
So I stop the LOS port.
(Sadly unless a dev owns a XZ2P or XZ3 these phones won't be supported in the official stock based LineageOS)

The only difference between the stock and SODP editions are:
SODP will get GCAM support later and has camera2API level 3.
stock will never support GCAM apps and has the limited stock camera2API level.
SODP uses a 4.14 kernel and probably get mainline support later.
stock uses the stock 4.9 kernel and will probably be there forever.
SODP targets to use as much open source as possible.

And LiveDisplay doesn't work in my SODP version.

PS: After the September exams in the new semester I look for a ROM replacement for the sake of diversity.
It's good to have a choice and with the available official supported SODP based Pixel Experiment, we have a ROM which sadly forces you to use the full GAPPS (Google Apps package).

Hi martin, i wanted to ask should i buy this phone? I want a gaming beast but can be rootable, has roms, kernels and it seems this one has very lengthy and dangerous process to do so? What r ur regards on this
I think it's still good to buy.
I bought the asia 6GB ram edition.

In the future it will be part of the mainline kernel, so it won't need closed source vendor drivers anymore, which makes it future proof.
