I am thinking about installing /e/ on my Samsung Galaxy S9+. The device is already on Android Q and I would like to ask why this specific warning is shown in the installation instructions? Is there an elevated risk of a bricked phone?
" Warning : Downgrading Smartphones already on Android Q or LineageOS 17.x to Pie or from Pie OS to Oreo or Nougat can cause instability or at worst brick some devices."

yes, on Samsung devices it is better don’t trying to downgrade.
you can try the eOS-Q-GSI from here CUSTOM BUILD - Android 10 (Q) eOS GSI -- new versions September 3rd
Thanks. I’ll have a look and decide, if I’m confident enough to install that much of a custom solution.
Do you know why Android Q complicates things? Asking out of curiosity.
It’s general on Samsung that downgrading fails. Has nothing to do with Q
