I have never owned a smartphone before, but I’ve just bought a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9, so that I can use easy-installer with it to install the / e / OS.
I use Linux Mint on my PC, onto which I have already installed the easy-installer, and I did sample that with my new phone yesterday, and it appeared to work, before I aborted (just after I pressed something I didn’t even see and the phone installed/updated Android 10 without my asking it to. I think this happens when using the easy-installer?).
I have a few questions, if anyone would be so kind as to reply:
I believe the phone I bought is the correct one for easy-installer, but if it is not, will the easy-installer just tell me that, and the process cease to continue, without harming the phone or taking off Android?
The company I bought the phone from includes a 12 month warranty, but not if I change the software on it. I have read a few posts here and it seems that I could revert to Android if needs be, although it sounds a bit treacherous to carry out (for someone as clueless as I am anyway). But if I did want to change it back to Android, then do I need to do anything BEFORE I install the / e / OS? This is something I am not clear about when I reading posts here on this subject. The instructions appear to be for saving personal data only before installation of / e /, but I don’t see any mention of there being a need to do anything otherwise beforehand, unless I have misunderstood something – which is very possible! (I don’t have any personal data on my phone yet, as I’ve only just received it).
Thank you very much!
