It seems like my phone should be supported, but it doesn’t seem like it is. It has the exynos processor, it’s unlocked, I unlocked OEM, I did what the easy installer asked, other than turning on android debugging. I could only find USB debugging, so I turned that on. Still, no dice. Any ideas?
Edit: I’d also like to know if the easy installer doesn’t work, can I just do it manually? I’m fine to do that, I just want to make sure my phone is supported before I flash everything.
Your first screenshots looks like Windows on your computer. In that case: can you copy this folder name to the file explorer location bar (not sure if that’s the correct term): %LOCALAPPDATA%\easy-installer
There should be one or more log files with names like 45761d08-711f-435a-881d-a236949654bb.log
Those log files typically are too large to upload to the forum directly. So can you paste the contents of the log to https://paste.c-net.org/ and share the generated link here?
According to https://doc.e.foundation/devices/ your “sm-g930w8” should be detected as codename “herolte”. Looking at that screenshot indicates the phone identifies as something else. But the log should contain the relevant details.
Yes, and it’s not hard to do that - especially if you work with a WindowsPC as host machine.
On Windows, use the Samsung compatible Odin v3.14.4 and flash TWRP Recovery. With TWRP Recovery you install the /e/ OS. This guide might help you with that: [HOWTO] Install /e/ on a Samsung smartphone with Windows easily.
