Successful clean install of /e/OS-T e-1.16-t-20231027-UNOFFICIAL-dreamlte by ronnz98 based on Stock Android 9.0 (Pie), One UI, but four apps do not work as they did here:

  1. Fingerprint also does not work (timeout).

The app ‘Display’ does not work for me, neither the dark theme nor the font size etc. can be changed. I had to do this ‘font + display size’ and via the developer options. This is necessary for me because the default settings show very small icons and fonts - due to the default display resolution (1440 x 2960 pixels).

Very advantageous for future @ronnz98’s updates:
Updating can be done without a PC, as the e-Recovery allows ‘adb sideload’ from the microSD card.


Install a custom recovery with Odin on Windows OS:

Simply unzip @roonz98’s e-1.16-t-20231027-UNOFFICIAL-dreamlte.zip and copy the recovery.img.

Open a command prompt and convert the file "recovery.img to “recovery.tar” with the command

tar -cvf %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\recovery.tar %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\recovery.img

or use my .md5 recovery.tar.md5 [ 39.7 MB ]


Please try this. Its based on newer /e/OS-T1.16.1

Yeah, yeah @roonz98,
with your updated build e-1.16.1-t-20231028-UNOFFICIAL-dreamlte.zip the above mentioned bugs are fixed, that means the System Apps Battery + Display + Notifications + Sound & vibration as well as as well as Fingerprint are now fully functional :white_check_mark:


However, I have noticed inconsistencies when updating with the e-recovery via adb sideload - by the way, exactly the same problems that occur with the official e-recovery and the official /e/OS (Android 11) 'e-1.16-r-20231017342509-STABLE-dreamlte.zip. Details will follow.
