Moving Nexus and Pixel Devices to LineageOS base

Oh no what have we done?!

For the past few months Team-OctOS has been maintaing two seperate Nougat code bases. An AOSP based branch for the Nexus/Pixel devices and a LineageOS based branch to support all of the other devices. This also means that team has been split working on two seperate projects. In order to get the team back to being a team we’ve made the tough decision to discontinue the AOSP branch. All current officially supported devices will still be supported using the LineageOS base OctOS.

Expect to see weekly builds for the below devices on the Oct-N Weekly (LineageOS base) download page begining Feb 10th.

  • Nexus 5 (hammerhead)
  • Nexus 5x (bullhead)
  • Nexus 6 (shamu)
  • Nexus 6p (angler)
  • Pixel (sailfish)
  • Pixel XL (marlin)

*You will need to wipe data. No dirty flashing when switching to the new base

We will be hard at work as a whole team again developing OCT-N from one common branch.
