I am new to this stuff, though I have looked into rooting before.
My phone IS in the supported list, just a couple questions before I start.
Will I need to back up and reinstall contacts ect after install of /e/ os?
Will my phone be “rooted” after this? Or is this not considered a root?
I would think Its a good idea to back up a full image of my phone before starting, is this possible? Any suggestions/tips?
Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online services
It is always a good idea to backup before flashing another OS and yes you will have to setup contact and other default setting after a successful installation. This will only be a one time process. Subsequent builds will come OTA and use the same settings.
/e/OS does not root your phone. You do not need to root your phone to install /e/. If you really want to root your phone then you will have to separately root your device after a successful /e/OS installation.
You can refer a document given here besides this there would be a lot of documents on XDA and other forums which you can refer.
Perfect! Thanks for the info this clarifies it greatly for me.
