For now, it seems that OPO is fully supported device, meaning that everything works (full bar).
I say that because if i didn't already have a MX4 (wjch is working quite good), and as a new comer that choose a device in this list, i would tell me "well, i'll get OPO, as i want everything to work on my uTouch phone", and then, i'd get very desapointed, that something like camera, dosen't work like it should be.

@Moem To simplify the answer, it is a question of modernizing the kernel - or rather the material abstraction of the Android kernel - from version 5 to version 7 (Nougat if I well remember).
Halium is a collaborative project to unify the Hardware abstraction layer for projects which run GNU/Linux on mobile devices with pre-installed Android.
A few UT main flagships devices are concerned by this new port which started around the beginning of this year.
No idea of the time to wait yet.... (Maybe @Flohack could better answer ?)
On the other hand, the update will be released to the smartphone system updates - like OTA updates do come. So don't worry, nothing to reinstall.
This new port should notably correct the problems related to the cameras of the smartphones concerned (Nexus 5, OplusOne...).
@stanwood Thank you, that was super helpful!

@Keneda - I agree with you that the "maturity" ratings on some of the devices listed on that page seem to be not quite in line with how much of the hardware's functions are fully supported, and it would be better if the rating indicated that factor more accurately.
@stanwood Yes Halium ports are in the works for the core devices. Though we face issues here and there. The biggest one thats unclear till now is how we gonna migrate the devices over? Since the new Halium devices will have a different way how to store the rootfs and system image. I am not sure we can offer it as a drop-in replacement.
Thus said I will try to continue with the OPO port for Halium 7.1, jus tnow finished my other port for the Nexus 6P
thanks for all, but I have got lost about it then. we will get at some point a good camera in OPO or not? do we need to do something ,manually, or just wait until that is resolve?
@domubpkm No I am working at the same time on all devices somehow xD

Most likely, we will. And we will probably get it in normal updates, when it's ready.

Do you maybe look like this?
@UdenGoogle I can confirm on my test build zoom, flash and autofocus are working very well. However, it has other instabilities like wonky WiFi, its definitely not ready to be deployed.
