I’m new to /e/ using this device.

I’m coming from lineageOS so I just

  • restarted to bootloader from recovery
  • adb push /media (pushed ROM)
  • wipe system dalvik etc.
  • installed rom from zip file
  • restart

It’s a quite old device but it worked fine and now, thanks to /e/, I hope I can still use it for quite a bit longer and keeping it updated (at least security updates).

I have not registered any /e/ account to use your cloud services (I have my own) but in case any dev needs to check or test anything I’m glad to do it (it’s a production device though)

So far so good :ok_hand: :blush: , hardware works as expected (haven’t tested GPS yet), changed Bliss launcher to Launchair, no issues with battery drain, …
