Hi Manoj,

Thanks, I’m sure this will be very useful for new users :slight_smile:

I added “Troubleshoot user-installed apps” in “Apps and widgets”, as this seems to be a common issue …

Hi Manoj,

I added a couple of suggestions, essentially about tips.

Best,

Some modifications have been made on the HOWTO side : they are now all in the “eWiki” category instead of both in eWiki and an other “HowTo” sub-category, making it more clear.
A specific HOWTO category has also been created in the French and German group of the forum.

This topic has received a major update. Every HOWTO on the forum and the /e/ documentation are listed and categorized here. So if you don’t find a HOWTO here, it doesn’t exist.

In this case do not hesitate to suggest or create it in order to make things easier for new and non experimented users. Thanks ! :wink:

I would really recommend the

  • [HOWTO] Migrate from Stock/Google Android ROM to /e/OS
    This is very important for new users. If there was a standard procedure it would be super helpful and remove a lot of hesitation!

Edited :

I like the French @Superman How to install /e/ for generic device, because it is very well explicite with its summary and support bootloader unlock method variants, (xiaomi, but not Samsung, not Sony, etc…)
I would like to see the same including windows variant at the beginning, with illustrations and other languages.

I like the @Anonyme’s How To install /e/ for Samsung easily with windows, because it is explicit, well illustrated and bilingual,
I would like to see the same including Linux variant at the beginning, including other devices variants and with other languages.

I Iike the recent @manish How To install /e/ for OnePlus, and @Chimpthepimp for FairPhone 3 with Linux because it is well explicit and very well illustrated,
I would like to see the same including windows variant at the beginning, including other devices variants and with other languages.

I like the @Anonyme’s how to create a bug report because it is too much detailed, and for hide/unhide illustrations feature.

.

Add : there are photos for a Windows install with command prompt here : (https://oneplus.gadgethacks.com/how-to/install-twrp-recovery-your-oneplus-6t-0190296/)

.

I don’t have electricity to plug my laptop and try to do the mix/compilation job for a better How To install /e/ as I liked.
(First timer - checking requirements)

.

Thanks for all the already accomplished work.

Hi @Roger you can edit the first topic. Deleting your post to avoid confusion.

Hi there!

Thanks for the opportunity to contribute.
Recently, I needed to transfer some files from my FP3 with eOS to my archlinux system.
I tried to follow this guide, in particular the package that worked for me was jmtpfs (android-file-transfer (obviously?) and mtpfs(less obviously) were not able to mount the device).

It would be nice to have a tip about this in the “Transfer your data…” section.

I am not editing the original post for two reasons: I can not find the edit button :grimacing: ; maybe other packages will do the job too and I was not able to make them work. Probably just a reference to the archwiki where all the possibilities are listed could be fine.

Thanks a lot for your work.

Hello.
I think a ‘howto config/use microg’ will be quite helpful for newcomers… and for me too :wink:

Hello @manoj,

How to self-host the cloud as a first step doesn’t seem to be in your list, is it? Other topics on self-hosting are, but not setting it up in the first place. You could add this with a reference to:

Also, your list in the first post seems to contain a few more HowTos than the list on the website:

Cheers :slightly_smiling_face:
