Install /e/ on FP3 : puzzling warnings

The 3rd sentence of the warnings in Install /e/ on a Fairphone FP3 - “FP3” page is at least ambiguous:

Warning : Do not attempt to downgrade your smartphone in case you are on Android Q / LOS 17.0 or Android Pie / LOS 16.x.

Downgrading a device from Q or Pie to Oreo or Nougat operating system can cause your device to brick and become unusable.

If you are on these OS versions Please stop at this point and continue using your current Operating System.

My FairPhone is on Android Pie (as all FP3 I guess) … and the /e/ OS Information indicates pie dev so:

  • can you confirm that I can install the curent /e/ OS on my Googled-FP3 currently running on Android Pie ?
  • if yes (or no :frowning: …) could you clarify the warnings above ?


Hi @atravert the warning is a statement showing up on all devices. In this case for the FP3 it is incorrect. This error has been fixed and the warning should not show up for the FP3 once the fix goes live on the documentation server. You can flash the /e/OS FP3 build on the stock FP3 ROM. Follow the rest of the documentation.
