Hello there! So today I installed /e/ onto my Samsung Galaxy s8. I’m really not that big a fan of the default apps, and also of course I want yknow other apps. So I went into the /e/ store, and tried to download F-Droid (which the search couldn’t find, but I found later- besides the point) and Aurora. Whenever I tried to install it though, the app store would just crash. I tried downloading it through the web browser, and I’d get a popup saying
SD card not found.
Download to default folder?
(file icon) F-Droid.apk (editable field)
(folder icon) Downloads (editable field)
[_] Don’t show again
I’d click “Download” and it would just pop back up again. if I tap on the “Downloads” field it says “not enough space”. The only thing i can do is hit cancel, which makes it go away.
I went to the files app to check on my storage, but both on the root(?) folder (SM-G950F), the Documents folder, and the Downloads folder, there is only a big hourglass with red sand in the bottom and the words “Can’t load content at the moment”. If I hit the 3 dot icon in the upper right, in Documents and SM-G950F the option for “get info” is greyed out. I can click it in Downloads but it just crashes the app.
I went into the Recorder app as an experiment, and tried to record the screen and my voice. It would let me hit the record button, but once I hit stop it would crash as well.
When I try to open Maps it says “One or more resource files are missing. Please reinstall the application.”
I can open and make new Tasks.
I can connect to wifi and use the web browser.
I can create and save contacts
If i try to take a photo, it says “failed to save photo”
That’s everything I’ve tried really so far. It is leading me to believe that I may have screwed up the installation of /e/, but I know I checked out of read-only mode in TWRP when I installed /e/, is there something else I missed? I wiped the phone, formated it into exFAT, all that jazz. Obviously I don’t have anything.
=edit 1: I also am unable to receive calls
=edit 2: i went back into TWRP, wiped and formatted just about everything, and went to the “install” tab (after putting the /e/ zip in the internal storage). When i click on the zip, it says “folder: /sdcard”. Does this mean it is trying to install onto a nonexistant SD card?
=edit2.5: i went into the file manager in TWRP and found /sdcard, it apparently is the name of what my PC calls simply “Internal Storage”
=edit 3: re-flashed. Still cannot take pictures or download apps or anything. opened up galery, got a new error: “No Storage
No external storage available”.
Plugging my phone into the PC, in This PC it doesn’t even show up as having space (it shows up as SM-G950F but there’s no bar, no “x GB free of x GB”)
