I will install /e/ on my FP3+ as soon as it arrives. I do not intend to use the included App-Store, as I find cleanapk questionable. My Plan is to use Aurora-Store and F-Droid. To enable automatic updates, I’d like to install their respective privilege extensions. I’d also like to not root my phone and to lock the bootloader after the installation.
Reading through the forum, I got the following plan of the standard installation procedure:
While the bootloader is still unlocked, you install the respective extensions using TWRP, which you don’t have to install on FP3s, you just boot into it via
adb. After this you can install the stores just normal from apk’s and connect with their respective privilege apps.
Now I have three questions:
Has anyone experienced the privilege extension being uninstalled by a regular /e/ OTA update? (If yes, this would mean I’d have to keep my bootloader unlocked )
Can you recommend the Aurora-Droid App (Auroras F-Droid frontend)? If this app works well, I could just install only Aurora Services and use this instead of F-Droid.
