Thanks again fs12345. You explanation seems to makes so much more sense than the pages on this forum. How come it seems much easier than on this page: https://doc.e.foundation/devices/herolte/install ?
There they talk about Odin, Heimdall, Installing a custom recovery, Installing /e/ from recovery, steps that I do not understand how they are related… Seems very complicated, involving installing several programs on a host computer and doing things that will certainly be a total mess if I try, like “install Heimdall and flash /e/OS”.
If I don’t need the “Heimdall” and all those, is it because I partially ran the Uneasy-Installer or did that accomplish nothing? I wonder what is the point of the Uneasy-Installer at all?
What I mean is, for you fs12345, were the steps you write about enough, no Uneasy-Installer and you did not need Odin and Heimdall?
If I am completely out of my depths here, please say “Jeppe, just stop and go get yourself a new iPhone”… I feel I have bothered you all too much already. I am thankful though for your will to try to help me so far.
Based on fs12345 logical steps and easy sounding tutorial, if I understand it correctly, these are the steps I should take:
Reroot with Kingoroot. Done from my PC with Kingoroot software.
Switch on wifi on phone, SIM card not needed.
Download /e/ from this website, save on phone SD card.
Go to TWRP website and download an .apk corresponding to the phone model.
Install TWRP, which should be automatically recognized.
Magic reboot with power+home+volume (not sure if up or down)
In magic screen, as in photo above, Wipe.
Tap Install on magic screen (which is TWRP I would guess)
Browse to SD card and install /e/ from zip,
If it works, celebrate! If not, continue to spam this forum with questions.
Completely different method from the almost totally incomprehensible tutorials in links above.
Piero, thanks again. Rerooting is not necessary?
That would be great. I don’t know in detail what it is and why it should be needed though. Something with administrator rights. If NOT needed for fs12345’s seemingly easy method above, then it would save some steps.
(by the way, I still don’t understand the point of your GNU/Linux link above, I understand nothing of what is written there…)
