Additional device support
ethOS is upgraded as a fork of Lineage 19.1. Builds for the Pixel5a, Pixel3, and Pixel3XL phones are available.
Helios light client
Following the Ethereum Merge to Proof-of-Stake, the Geth light client was deprecated. The Helios light client, which utilizes less resources, and works with the PoS Ethereum network, replaces the Geth client.
A system-level Ethereum wallet is included in ethOS. Installed apps can communicate with this wallet directly. The system wallet communicates to Ethereum via the onboard Helios light client.
The XMTP Protocol is added to the native SMS messenger app. XMTP is a decentralized messaging service that utilizes Ethereum.
ENS domains can be added to the ethOS Contacts application. The XMTP messaging app can send messages to .eth addresses utilizing ENS Contacts data.
