I wanted to test the easy installer before trying to flash an old galaxy S9
(I have never flashed a ROM so i thought it was a good idea to use the installer.)
The installation procédure has been easily finished but when I clic on the icon a message tell me that my windows version is incompatible…
I use a windows 7 32 bit …
Is easy installer only usable with 64 bit OS ?
Do you have any solution for me ?
Thanks a lot !!
You do know that Windows 7 went EOL (End Of Life) on January 14, 2020 and that there have been no more security updates and that it is dangerous to still be using it, right?
I didn’t know this date. I thank you for the information I will change that as soon as possible.
But that doesn’t help me for the easy installer problem…
Is it necessary to change my 23 bits to 64 bits ?
Windows EXE files can be checked for 32-bit or 64-bit compatibility easily (the installer EXE is indeed 32-bit), but I lack the wisdom for Java programs like the Easy Installer.
Moving a Windows 7 32-bit PC to 64-bit requires more effort than installing /e/ OS without /e/asy-installer.
This guide might help you with that: [HOWTO] Install /e/ on a Samsung smartphone with Windows easily.
I just had a look at my build directory. The bundled java executable is reported as “PE32+ executable (console) x86-64, for MS Windows” (I’m on Linux myself). That means it is 64 bit. And while 32 bit programs can run on a 64 bit computer/OS, the other way round is just impossible.
P.S.: the installer of the easy-installer ( ) might very well be 32 bit, but that just doesn’t help if the program it installs is not compatible with 32 bit.
I’ll try to install \e\ OS without the Easy installer…
The android version of my S9 is android 9 (Pie).
But the version of \e\ is based on oreo … could it be an issue ???
thanks for your answers !!
S9 with Android 9 ‘P’ should not be a problem unlike Android 10 ‘Q’.
In S9 with StockAndroid 9.0, first of all, open ‘OEM Unlock’ so that TWRP 3.3.1-1 can be flashed without any problem. Do not(!) use TWRP 3.4.0-0 in combination with Oreo 8.1.0.
I did “EOM unlock” but android asked me to factory reset . Android has started back and a new empty android is there. Is it correct ? may I consider this is ready for flashing ?
I did “oem unlock with success”
I used odin 3.14.4 to install TWRP3.3.1-1 then tried to install e-0.13-o-2020120889191-dev-starlte
but it failed (error 7) and now I’m blocked
please help me …
as a reminder, My phone is a galaxy s9 with android 9 pie
Wouldn’t it make sense to start a fresh topic? There might be people out there able to help installing /e/ on an S9 but wouldn’t read this topic because it’s about problems with the easy-installer…
The three lines before the error-7-message indicate why ‘error 7’ occurred. What’s the wording?
With the device powered off, hold Volume Down + Bixby + Power
with your S9, everything can be fixed.
By the way, please follow @Ingo_FP_Angel idea.
