Hello, how can i edit the first post? i want to update the link

Hello @The_Penguin If you want I can make your post a wiki (editable by everyone) the time you change the link (or permanently if you want).

By the way, in the screenshots it doesn’t looks like the default /e/OS, is it because you modified the appearance after the installation or because you directly modified the source before building ?

i modified the apprearance after the installation, i always do that.

hi @The_Penguin,

i have just installed your e-0.13-q-20201127-UNOFFICIAL-j5xnlte build without difficulties
on a SM-J510FN,
i am more than a bit surprised about the permissions ( all greyed )
required by your FM Radio application to work ! " com.android.fmradio "

it was not the case in the first pie version e-0.11-p-20200908-UNOFFICIAL-j5xnlte
with " com.caf.fmradio "

I hope i have neutralized the FMRadio Application by changing the extension ( .apk to .abk ) of a file :
Please @harvey186 what do you think of that ?

There are existing more respectful FM Radio apps.
for the moment i will install the pie build,
Thanks @The_Penguin for building /e/OS for this device

The FM radio is the typical lineage FM radio, don’t worry about it.

New build is here!!!
-January security patch
-Updated to 0.14 version

Sorry for taking so long to update this, i was focusing on other ROMs.

-Removed weather and browser apps
-Replaced outdated WebView with Bromite WebView

The browser removal and WebView replacement are temporary, when /e/ developers update them i will revert the changes (the weather app removal is permanent until I change my opinion about it)

Please some forum admin move this to custom builds section.
Thanks in advance.

I used this Rom, it is so cool
but I need Google play and google play service for some app
how do I install it?

play services is not recommended and replaced by microG.

you can check if your app is supported here:

I was very happy to find this rom. Have been using it for a week now and the only issue was with the dialer. When i started a call, the app crashes leaving the call still running. replaced with simple dialer and it’s fine.

thanks for your work

The dialer thing is weird because it never crashed for me, as soon as /e/ devs update the browser app i will make a new build.

Ok, i just made a new build and i added all the apps i deleted before, i also synced prebuiltapks with aayush_test branch which has the browser and webview updated, enjoy people!
