Hi, I’ve installed /e/ dev on my S9, the instructions page has section
Patch the device
Download the patch from here
Install the patch
On the device, in TWRP go into Advanced > ADB Sideload, then swipe to begin sideload
From the computer, please run adb sideload <patch file>
unfortunately sideloading the patch failes with no error message,
has the banner
dm-verity and forced encryption
Then ther is “unpacking the installer” followed by “Updater process ended with ERROR:1”
is there an alternativ patch or is it not essential? actually i continued with installation, and got to boot to /e/ succesfully, but i’m not sure if this failing patch has further implications not immediately visible.
Some guidelines would be appreciated
Maybe it helps to have a fuller understanding of the no-verity-opt-encrypt-samsung-1.0.zip. It is difficult to find easy to digest information. You will need a good ad-blocker to read this article, sorry, https://www.androidinfotech.com/no-verity-opt-encrypt-versions/.
I see that you feel you got a fail. I would take a more optimistic view; Samsung did not want to send you a helpful message that you had liberated the device! I may be wrong. I hope your phone continues to run /e/ successfully!
S9 starlte Documentation Suggestions takes a bit of reading but is probably worthwile!
thx, seems, that others have similar problems, and you can continue without the patch without problems.
Hm, I don’t think, that I can blame Samsung for a misleading message, as the message is from TWRP, as far as I understand. Also, I don’t think it’s misleading, as it seems, the patch wasn’t actually applied. When booting /e/ encryption is still automatically enabled, this patch should prevent that, as far as I understand
