Like the title says.
I have an old OnePlus One sitting here, gathering dust. It works perfectly, except for one significant issue, in that it keeps fouling up SIM cards, not instantly, but pretty quickly (within a few hours/days after insertion) … maybe the phone, maybe the SIM providers, don’t know. I’m content to use the phone as a homelab wifi-only practice device (although if anyone has any suggestions on the SIM issue, I’m all ears … err … eyes).
It’s worth noting that the OnePlus already has a custom ROM on it, along with an old version of TWRP, etc. I flashed a decent custom ROM onto it right after I got it, 5 (6?) years ago. Stock Android is not for me.
I also have a nice Galaxy S7 Edge, with /e/OS preinstalled on it, purchased thru /e/ … this is my daily driver. Works great, mostly, most of the time. Just noting this, as it may come up along the way to installing it on my OnePlus.
So, since I have a new phone, I want to start playing/experimenting/learning how to hack/program on phones, using this old OnePlus, and it seems like /e/ is a good place to start, since the documentation is so nicely done, the whole installation process clearly spelled out, etc.
ISSUE #1: And, not my issue (yet) … but I see two very recent OnePlus One threads here, one person could not apply the latest OTA update, another person could not install /e/. Both threads are still active, and it sounds like both are at least partly resolved already, but I’ll keep an eye on both, and report if I bump into my own version of either issue.
That’s it for now. Progress reports to follow …
