if your device already run another custom OS, you may have TWRP ( or another custom recovery ) already installed, so go to step .7). or .8)

if your device already run /e/ and you want to update or upgrade without data loss, see this howto

if your device run an Official-Android Stock-Vendor Firmware version, ( realised by your Carrier / Vendor / Gogol )
so, this step by step guide is for you.

most devices comes with three booting modes
boot to system mode.
boot to recovery mode.
boot to bootloader mode = download mode = fastboot mode

.

.
you are decided to try /e/ on your device,
so, you need to replace the existing system by /e/OS.

  • To modify or change the /system partition of your device, you need to boot a custom recovery software that allow you to do that. ( e-recovery, based on AOSP-recovery or the best featured TWRP, from the Team Win Recovery Project ).
  • To modify or change the /recovery partition of your device, you need to unlock the bootloader and flash the custom recovery image to the ROM with the appropriate tools ( Fastboot or Heimdall or Odin )
  • To manage the device, you need to communicate with it. ( USB adb, the Android Debugging Bridge )

there are many /partitions on the phone ( ~30, depending of the device model ), but the install process will only modify /boot, /recovery, /system, and /data ( plus /cache and /dalvik-cache ).
NOT ALL THE DEVICE CONTENT
( hardware related )


.

Preparation :

1) Download /e/OS.zip

.
On your PC ( adb sideload method ),

or

On your SDcard ( recovery / SDcard method ),
.

it take times, so do it first,
you can follow all others steps during the download.
Download the codenamed specific image of /e/OS

see details

your model number, available in the
"settings menu" → Plus/System → About phone → “Model number”
must be supported by the device code name of the build you choose.
Be carefull about Regional or Carrier variants for the same commercial appellation

example :
model name : Galaxy s7
code name : herolte
model number : SM-G930F, SM-G930FD, SM-G930S, SM-G930K, SM-G930L, SM-G930W8
(lineage_wiki/herolte.yml at master · LineageOS/lineage_wiki · GitHub)

2) Download TWRP.img

On your PC,

see details

Download the codenamed specific .img file for your device, it will to replace the original stock-recovery by a custom recovery called TWRP, the Team Win Recovery Projet from :

twrp version 3.5.x-x is designed for recent devices type " a/b_slot" or “treble”, originaly shipped with Stock Android 8, and above,
twrp version 3.4.x-x was buggy, don’t choose it
If installing /e/OS nougat 7, oreo 8, pie 9, quince tart 10, or red velvet cake 11, on a device originaly shipped with an Android version older than 8, you sould see red errors,
Better is use an older version like 3.3.x-x witch is reputed working well

Windows Odin

Install TWRP

  1. WARNING : make sure you have enough battery power to avoid any tricky situation, whether for your smartphone or your computer.
  2. Open Odin (the tool we put aside earlier).

  1. Put your smartphone in download mode (see above how to do this).
    The display differs according to the version of Android, here 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

  1. Connect your smartphone to your computer with a reliable cable.
    The word “Added” should appear on Odin. This means the smartphone in download mode is detected.If nothing happens, it means your computer doesn’t have the necesary drivers. So you need to install them, by following the steps of the following 7) part. Sometimes you just have to wait a few minutes that Windows install them automatically.
    odin%20added
  2. Click on “AP”, then select the TWRP file in .tar format previously downloaded.
    AP
  3. Click on “Start” to start installing TWRP on your device. It will take a few seconds. Once finished, Odin will display in a green box “PASS”.WARNING : Immediately after clicking on “Start”, press the home and volume up buttons simultaneously and for a long time. This allows you to enter in TWRP directly when the phone automatically reboots. If you don’t, Android will start normally but the TWRP installation will be deleted. It will therefore be necessary to repeat the procedure.If you don’t like to do things quickly or if your phone reboots into the system instead of TWRP, here is a procedure that will work on every device : in the “Options” tab (between “Log” and “Pit”) untick the “Auto-reboot” box. Therefore you will have to manually reboot the device by pressing the main button, the power button and the volume down button. As soon as the screen turns off, move your finger from the volume down button to the volume up button (while continuing to press on the other buttons) in order to enter into TWRP.When TWRP is starting, a small line appears at the top left of the screen with the word “recovery” on some devices.

7) Install the necessary drivers if needed

In order for your smartphone to communicate with the computer, and therefore be flashed, you must install the necessary drivers. (If you have already successfully installed TWRP, skip this step.)

  1. Download them from the official source (you need to have a Samsung account) or directly from an unofficial source .
  2. Unzip the downloaded directory.
  3. Open the unzipped directory created and launch the utility (the file ending by “.exe”).

  1. Click on “Yes” in the Windows warning message and follow the steps indicated.
    Perfect, your device can now correctly communicate with Odin.

        BUT for installing /e/OS on an older device ( originaly shipped with nougat.7, or older=, better is to use a version like twrp 3.3.1-0

Thanks for reading !
Share your feedback.

8) Install the image of /e/OS on the ROM of your Samsung device without computer, with TWRP using the SDcard method

(writted by @Anonyme)

Now you’re in TWRP, congratulations, you’ve done the hardest part.

see details

Let’s detail the following procedures in several sub-steps.

A) Delete existing smartphone content

  1. Before you reach the main menu, a message may ask you if you want to open TWRP read-only (i.e. no risk of deleting or changing anything) or not. This option shouldn’t be chosen (since we want to install a new operating system). Slide the bottom arrow from left to right.TWRP may also ask you for a password, which is your phone password.

  2. a)


.

  • Tap Wipe from Main Menu.
    image
  • Ta.p Format Data

    .
  • Type yes in the text field to continue.


.

  • Once done a successful result as seen in the image below appears.

This will remove encryption as well as delete all files stored on the internal storage.

  • T.ap Back, return to the main menu, choose reboot ,

image

  • image

the device reboot to TWRP

  1. b)


.
and tap Advanced Wipe .

  1. Select the following items to delete and nothing else :
  • Dalvik / ART Cache
  • Data
  • Internal Storage
  • cache
  • system


.
4. Validate by dragging the “Swipe to Wipe” arrow from left to right.If red error messages show up, your phone is probably encypted but TWRP can’t decrypt the /data partition (it’s a common issue on Samsung phones).To solve that problem, go to Wipe > Advanced wipe, select “data”, click on “Repair or Change File System”, then on “Change filesystem”. Select exFAT (or another one if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t matter), then swipe from the left to the right. Redo the manipulation but this time select ext4 (which is the original file system) then slide from the left to the right.
Go to the 8)A)1. part of the howto.
5. Return to the main menu using the virtual buttons at the bottom of the screen.

B) Transfer the /e/ ROM to the internal storage of the smartphone

The previously downloaded /e/ ROM is waiting in the warm on your computer, so you need to transfer it to your smartphone’s internal storage so that TWRP can use it.

  1. Connect your smartphone to the computer.
  2. Copy the ZIP folder of the /e/ ROM (without unzipping) (right click on it and then “Copy”).


.
3. Paste it into the internal storage of your smartphone. To do this, in the file explorer you are in, clic.k on “This PC” then on your smartphone, then on “Internal storage”. Paste here, next to the “TWRP” folder (not inside).

  1. Unplug your smartphone once the transfer is complete.

#.## C) Install /e/

Everything is ready, all that remains is to install /e/.

  1. In the TWRP main menu, click on “Install”.


.
2. Select the .zip file you just copied/pasted. It should appear directly if you have pasted it at the right place.


.
3. To confirm the flash of your smartphone, slide the “Swipe to confirm Flash” arrow from left to right.

  1. A blue loading bar or a shiny empty bar should appear. After a few minutes at most, the installation is completed.

If you encounter an “error 7”, refer to this topic .
This could also be due to the fact that :

  • your TWRP version isn’t compatible with the ROM you are trying to install,
  1. Click on “Wipe cache/dalvik” at the bottom left, confirm if necessary.


.
6. Click on “Reboot System”. You can choose whether or not to install the TWRP application on /e/ and choose whether or not you want this application to be a system application. Since it’s not useful, I preferred to click on “Don’t install TWRP App” and DO NOT drag the arrow from left to right (this. would have resulted in its installation).

9) Enjoy your digital sovereignty

The animation of the /e/ logo should now appear on your screen for several minutes. Wait, then configure your device as you wish.

I recommend to use SD card. Putting file on SD card and uploading from there is sure way to do at first round. Adb failed me a few times and worked a few times, depending on the cable, phone’s internal state, cosmic explosions stellar years away and other invisible influences.

And a great guide, btw. Very detailed, step by step.
