And here's an example for testing upgrade between different images:
Device Old Replicant image Additional apks New Replicant image Result and comments
GT-I9300 Replicant 6.0 0003 Silence 0.15.16
Replicant 6.0 0004 RC4 wiped the cache, boot fine or failed to boot

Feel free to add your tests in a new reply and then add them to the summary here.

This way we can still understand who to contact for more details if a given test fails.

1 Tests if the image boots until the laucher or not.

2 Tests if it's possible to retrieve the IMEI in the settings. If not the modem is probably not working.

Thanks a lot.

It seems that we still have some bug(s) to fix:

  • Several "Unfortunately, the process android.process.acore has stopped." messages
  • Contacts does not show contact (it fails at startup) and triggers above error as well

I wonder if it could be related to the huge code change to remove the nonfree ambient SDK.

Tried a clean install of 0004 RC4 on the N7100 and can't seem to get disk encryption to work. The phone goes into a bootloop after enabling it. wiped the phone multiple times with the same effect.

I'm not a pro but I can help you with testing the GT-i9100

I installed

to "RECOVERY" and "KERNEL" and installed

All installations succeeded. ROM is starting. Encryption process seems also working. Camera after encryption might not work (it says SD card is full). But not really important for me. But Writing files to DCIM e.g. is working. I haven't found out yet to make GT-i9100 device encryption completly secure. You still can see files in the Recovery. I maybe have to apply but not knowing if I get this to work :D

Let me know if you need any other tests.

I cannot test an upgrade from Replicant 6.0 0003 like you mentioned because it doesn't boot. Just shows the red replicant. I installed Replicant 6.0 0003 recovery to kernel and recovery and flashed the ROM inside the recovery after wiping everything and do factory reset. So install of official Replicant 6.0 0003 doesn't work for me but RC4 is booting flawlessly.

Boots and IMEI can be set to "Yes".

  • Resolution set to fixed

The RC5 have been published.

Make sure to read the information in the #2246 bug on how to install it as it needs a special key migration procedure to work.
