Feature update

The promised feature update is here. It will be last big update for Android 11, we will not be developing any more features and instead focusing on making an Android 11 build available for the Pixel 5a, and also preparing for Android 12.


Note: The Xiaomi Mi A2 proprietary firmware components are from September 2020, since trying to upgrade to anything newer ends up factory resetting the device.

Security update notes

  • The Pixels 3, 3 XL, 3a, 3a XL, 4, 4 XL, 4a, 5, 4a (5G) contain the full security patch, as they are still being updated by Google.
  • The Pixels 2 and 2 XL are not being updated by Google anymore, so they only contain the fixes to the open source components, such as the OS code and the Linux kernel. Proprietary components such as the bootloader, modem firmware, and other firmware no longer get updates.
  • The Xiaomi Mi A2 is still getting security updates, but those are Android 10 and usually released towards the end of the month, whereas CalyxOS is Android 11 and releases the updates right as they're available. This means that the A2 lags behind slightly, by a month or two, in getting security updates for proprietary components.
