CalyxOS

CalyxOS software support timeline

CalyxOS currently supports 12 Pixels (3 and newer), and we’ve got test builds available for 1 Fairphone and 3 OnePlus devices. That’s a total of 16 devices.

We’re also planning to add support for even more devices in the future, always trying to find more devices to which we can port CalyxOS.

We intend to provide high quality OS releases, where every single build is tested before release. This is not easy to scale, and takes a lot of time and effort. As such, sometimes we have to drop certain devices, especially when they’ve stopped receiving security updates given that we can only do so much.

Previously we’ve supported the Pixel 2, 2 XL and Mi A2. The last update for those was in February 2022.

General

We aim to support devices for as long as feasible, and provide monthly security updates

We will continue providing updates:

  1. While we’re on the same Android version.
  2. At least until the matching Linux Kernel LTS version is supported.
  3. If we manage to port a newer Android version in time, we will continue supporting that device while we’re still maintaing that version for other devices.

Examples

  1. Pixel 3 is still getting updates from us (including 12L), Google’s last update was February 2022.
  2. Pixel 2 got dropped in February 2022, that’s when Linux 4.4 stopped getting updates.
  3. Mi A2, CalyxOS was on Android 11, Xiaomi only provided Android 10 for it.
