I Found a fairphone 4 to buy.
I want to use easy install with my debian 11.
The patch security in the fairphone and the e os build is the same (Security patch: 2023-02-05), so, normally, it’s ok.
But the version of android in the fairphone 4 is 12.
Can I install e os if the version of android is the same in the fairphonne (version 12)?
From your first post it looks like you have a used device. Have you personally unlocked bootloader according to eOS install instructions?
If yes, you would proceed according to directions, putting phone in fastboot mode before running script.
After that there is the line:
“The script will flash all required files and will wait for input at the last step. Proceed to locking the bootloader.”
NOTE: Before flashing, check that the flash_FP4_factory.sh file on computer does not have “reboot_device” at the end at around line 195. I seem to recall having to remove this line so the device would not reboot at the end. Delete and save.
You would then remain in fastboot mode . Check the get_unlock_ability.
If it = 1 , you would proceed to lock as directed in instructions.
I it = 0, do not lock at all. You can still boot it up and run eOS. But do not lock.
PS: e-1.10-s-builds have March security patch, even better! Are you installing stable?
It s a used device, i can buy it the next week.
I just see it to control security patch and android version.
I prefered to check with forum the experiences of others before to flash.
I flashed a lot of mobile but the price it s not the same.
Thanks for sharing your experience.
I will think a little more and prepare everything
