Hello, guys!
Best wishes to you all with the new year!

I installed /e/ on a xiaomi note 5 - whyred.

Most things seems to work (:grinning:) but :slight_smile:

  • clock (horloge) : never worked;
  • I had an account with e.email (but seem to have lost it -??) : e.drive never worked
  • I can’t sync contacts with my nextcloud (calendar works). The Nextcloud app can’t add an account. No sync thus.

Anyone facing the same problems?

PS : I use the latest rom (as january 6th)

Thanks for your interest!

@mascaret you would need your e account to get the edrive and contact working. Please send a mail here contact@e.email with your details to get the account back.


#3

What symptoms do you have with the clock? For example does it show the wrong time?

In order to access the contacts of your own Nextcloud-instance, you don’t need the Nextcloud-Android-App, but you need to add a WebDAV account via the settings menu (I have a Nougat-System, so I don’t know, where this option is located in the Oreo settings menu).

To add a WebDAV account the location is almost the same in Oreo /e/ builds i.e. Settings >>User & acounts >> Add account …this will display a screen where you can add the WebDAV account

This might be worth mentioning though:

Hello!

Sorry I could not revert to you any sooner.

Clock : signals an error upon boot the time is displayed on home screen. However, the “Horloge” (clock) app hangs.

I’ve added my webdav accounts from start. Calendar works : synced with nextcloud.
That’s not the case with contacts.

Even with the android Nextcloud app : I can access my files on the server, everything working BUT contacts syncing (I can’t create an account from my e-phone as required by the nextcloud app).

Before the e-whyred, I used lineage on an galaxy note 3 (hlte) with davdroid : was flawless.

So, I presume it’s an e-related glitch.

Thanks for your interest!

@mascaret Can you try and download the clock app separately from Apkpure and try and install it just to check. I just tried it and it on my phone which has /e/ and it works separately as well… then I have two clocks on my phone and they are both working. One scenario I can see is if the time is set to a different time zone then it may crash.
You can also try and change the time settings under Settings >> System >> Date & time

I just installed a second clock app. Which seems to work as expected. The /e/ clock still doesn’t.

However, my concern is mostly with Nextcloud (impossible contacts syncing)…

Anyway, thanks for your time!

Hello,

Have you solved the issue ? Cause I’m facing similar issue : next cloud android app don’t sync my data with my own next cloud in the background on my e.phone 0.5 , a xiaomi redmi note 5 whyred


#10

Hi @Markus had you not setup a cloud instance of your own? Are you facing this issue?


#11

I will test this as soon as I upgrade my phone to 0.5. With my LeEco on 0.1 I have no such problems.

Sorry for my misleading previous post - I was under the impression that you were unable to sync files with your nextcloud server, which works for me.

Now that I have updated my system to 0.5, I searched for a way to update files in the background and found out that the Nextcloud-App (V3.5.0) does not provide such a functionality. Hava a look here for more background on this topic:
