I guess I’ll just have to wait for an update from one of the devs/mods as to when /e/ will be updated for my device. If their previous posts still apply I’m hoping it is still scheduled to be released for the end of October at the latest.
Thanks very much for the link. However, after having read through the article and the subsequent guide by kkoo it seems a bit complicated and longwinded. I’d rather just wait to use the /e/ easy installer in all honesty.
I’ve recently started using Linux these last few months on several systems, however I’m not familiar with flashing custom Roms and don’t want to brick my phone in the process of tying to get /e/ to work.
Edit: Actually I guess my main worry would be doing all the above, which would take a while and some learning on my part - Only to run into issues with the unofficial GSI build linked by Anonyme, or to have bugs.
TL; DR: I’d rather wait for the official /e/ OS to become compatible with Android One on my S9 plus
I’m building roms, not flashing them on all available devices. I’m building and flashing how I have learned a long time a go. I the good old fashioned way. There was no Odin, no heimdal only terminal
Sorry, I’m not the ‘I know everything guy’
And I only can repeat what I have heard from Samsung users.
We are here on a Android 10 device. Android 10 has a ‘superpartition’. And as far as I have heard from other Android 10 users, you can’t flash a GSI to a system partition with twrp, because TWRP is only showing you the superpartition not the system partition.
I’m happy to know how I can flash a GSI on my bacon and my Xiaomi devices. And I’m also happy when there is a Samsung Android 10 user who will write a HowTo installing a GSI on a Samsung Android 10 device. Because this question will come more often in future
As much as I want to use your custom rom - So I can have /e/ on my phone. My only worry is that it’s an unofficial build:
“The build is untested. So use on own risk”
And even though I’m all for experimenting with Linux distros. I’ve never flashed a custom rom onto Andrid before, so I’d rather be safe than sorry and stick with the /e/ official build for my first time flashing an Andoid rom. Especially as it should (hopefully) be ready by end of October
Devices new and existing being upgraded to Pie or Q - once we have the /e/ Q code ready
Devices will be upgraded starting from Q3 2020 and released in batches
That’s OK when you will wait for easy installer and official build … but in the moment the official build is Nougat or OREO, til eOS-Q official will be a long way
But I hope when your first flash with easy installer was working you will enjoy flashing and start with Odin flashing. As far as I know, it will work very well. But first let see the official version with easy installer running
For an installation demonstration I’ve your eOS-17.1-20200928-UNOFFICIAL-treble_arm64_bvS.img and twrp-3.4.0-0-starlte.img on the microSD card. To install your eOS-17.1 I would have to select ‘System Image’ in TWRP, right?
Long way? I thought it was due to come out Sept/October as Lineage OS have 17.1 compatible with android 10 and /e/ is a fork of lineage…Plus mods/devs e.g. @Anonyme have stated on numerous posts that eOS-Q is due to be released sept/oct.
Thanks very much I wouldn’t mind learning how to flash the official eOS-Q rom without the easy installer to be honest - As long as the OS worked on android 10 devices; it would be worth the learning curve.
the /e/OS v1.0 release was announced to mars 2019 ?
we are actually at the end of September 2020, using /e/OS v0.11…
Samsung devices are an exception in the supported device list,
you already can use a graphic interface named ODIN on a PC running windows to install TWRP (a custom recovery) on your device, witch is a graphic interface to install alternative android operating systems on your device.
