Hi
Yes, it is possible to install IodéOS on any Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 model

Hello iodèOS.-Team, Samsung’s Galaxy A5 2017 model is no longer in the list of devices supported by iodèOS. What does this mean End Of Life (EOL), or what else?

Hi,
No the device was not present in the french page version. Now it should be listed.

Hello iodé-Team.

The A520F ‘a5y17lte’ is a delightfully handy 5.2" Super AMOLED phone with glass front (Gorilla Glass 4), glass back, aluminium frame, IP68 dust/water resistant, dedicated slot microSDXC and FM radio.

Is there any chance that the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 will get an upgrade to iodéOS 3.x or at least another update to 2.4.x?

It is very unlikely, but who knows… From LineageOS – LineageOS Android Distribution “for devices using kernel versions 3.18 and below, this may be the end of the road”.

Does this mean that iodèOS-2.4-20220408-a5y17lte was the last ROM, so support will be discontinued immediately and accordingly there will be no update higher 2.4 (based on Android 11)?

It may be the end of the road, but it doesn’t have to be, because clever minds show that all theory is gray - and green the golden tree of life.

Yes, I’m aware of this work. But keep in mind that there is no guarantee of success for a completely usable rom.
In all cases, lineage 18.1 will be supported for several years, and so will be iodé 2.x on all the devices we support.

@vince31fr ,
Thank you for this clear statement. I’m completely satisfied with iodéOS 2.4x.

From my point of view, it doesn’t always have to be the next possible higher software version. Android 13 already sends its regards …
