I am on a Galaxy S7-edge (hero2lte), one of the refurbished, pre-/e/-installed phones. I received my first OS-system update notification last week … just now I noticed that a 2nd update became available a few days later, too.
I have not yet applied either update. Are there any caveats or concerns about installing system updates? Are they reasonably safe to apply immediately upon notification, or might they be buggy? Are these updates device-specific, or are they /e/-system-wide updates? Is there a bullet-list of included bug-fixes and updates somewhere?
The system updates will include bug fixes , security patches and is safe and should be run on the phone. The ephone’s have stable builds which are released only when the same build has been tested as part of the dev updates. The dev updates are the standard builds that go out every 2 -3 days on user phones. Only the refurbished phones receive stable builds as of now.
We have a changelog of what comes in the dev builds on the wiki. Will check and update if there is a similar posting available on the wiki for stable build changelogs.
I’m in the same boat: Fairphone 3, installed /e/ myself.
(currently Android 9, /e/ 0.11)
I got an email recommending I update to /e/ 0.13. I’ve read posts in various areas of this forum trying to find information on making a backup, and how to use the backup to restore, and it all sounds incredibly complicated, partly because there are so many terms I am not familiar with and expressions I don’t understand.
But here it sounds like updating isn’t currently an option for me. I’ll watch for replies here to see if this changes.
Currently this is the case, you can follow efforts for macOS here …
While the EXE file to install the Easy Installer is 32-bit, the Easy Installer itself needs a 64-bit OS to run, so your XP would have to be the not so common XP 64-bit version to even try running the Easy Installer … Impossible to use easy-installer on 32-bit windows 7.
