Sorry if I use wrong terms maybe but I have no idea about all this stuff, I installed /e/ really with step by step instructions.
I flashed a Samsung mini S4 I9195 like 1 week ago. Installation went fine, I just had the issue that my Windows 10 did recognized the phone but I couldn’t put the installation file on the internal storage because the phone wasn’t showing up in the explorer. I put the installation file on a mini sd card and then booted it from there with TWRP. I did the flash with Odin.
Installation went fine, e worked properly. But I started it without my SIM, just fooling around a bit with the device (note: its the first time I have smart phone, until now I was very happy with a old nokia but they shut down the 2G network so I had to do smth and e is pretty cool:) I bought this phone second hand because its small (still too big for me!) Dont know if it was SIM locked, with the old software the sign of the carrier would show up by starting the device (i have different carrier) but I think flashing the device shut make this issue obsolet, I guess…
I startet the phone with a SIM in and since then I dont get connection, it recognizes my carrier but it says only emergency calls. Then I rebootet the device with the SIM in. This time it worked and I had reception and could do calls. But then suddenly there was no reception, again only emrgency calls (still carrier visible on the phone). I rebooted it now several times and its always the same on off with the reception. I tried like turning on flight mode, turn down mobile network, searching manually network -> takes ages to find, it finds the carrier with a SIM symbol but it can’t register in the network< I went to the phone options by ##4636## and trying another connection but it didnt’t work. Now its showing that it has signal but if I try sending a SMS, it can’t deliver the message.
Sorry lot of text but I trying to give as much information as possible to solve this problem, I really want this make to work, its a great project and I would love to have an e phone, so thanks for any suggestions!
