one year ago I bought my FP3 with stock android. After a few weeks I switched to /e/OS.
No problems occurred. All updates went well in the meantime apart from some settings in OS.
But the team did a good job and corrections were done fast.
Unfortunately for newbies it is not quite simple to change, but I’m glad I did it for a better privacy.
The good documentation was helpful for me in some cases.
Now I upgraded from pie to q cause I too upgraded my camera modules. So it was necessary.
By doing this I too had the problem with ‘oem unlock’ in developer settings. I couldn’t change it.
Hence fastboot failed too. But I only had to deactivate my device-pin and everything was good. So I think, there could be a code problem on this, cause the pin query dialog obviously did not work.
Beside this little difficulty everything went well.
Last on Wednesday I did successful the new update to 0.14-q.
Up to now no important bug was found. There only seems to be a design problem in ‘android documentsui application’ (files). By switching to the dark mode design I hardly can’t read the name of files and directorys cause of a dark text color on dark background.
Some of the standard apps lack from features I prefer. So I got alternatives from f-droid. But that
is a personal feeling. I’m no phone nerd, but I expect a stable system which I got.
So overall I’m satisfied with /e/ and the fairphone.
At last a big thanx to the foundation and wishing a successful future.
