Vegeta / Vegetahd - BQ Aquaris E5 / BQ Aquaris E5HD¶
The family of Aquaris E5 devices by BQ are all called vegeta + a special suffix (there is an E5 HD so it’s vegetahd for example). However, the hardware is “the same” only in the versions E5 (vegeta) and E5 HD (vegetahd). The newer E5 4G (vegetalte) <devices/vegetalte> which has an LOS 14.1 image is a completely different System and does not share the same hardware. However, the BQ Aquaris E4.5 (krillin) is basically the same and maybe it’s images will work with minor changes.
There has been no effort to get Halium onto this device so far.
