So I just became aware of an /e/ build based on Android 10, and I’m impatient so I wanted to take a shot at upgrading myself. I’ve discovered the upgrade pages for the S9 and S9+, but i’m wondering if it’s any different for phones purchased directly from the e foundation. I remember when running CM not needing to have the phone hooked to the PC; I could reboot into recovery and install from there. Is that no longer the case?
Any tips to make the process smoother would be helpful, or if anyone knows if an upgrade/easy installer change is imminent please let me know!
I recall being able to put a file on an SD card, boot into recovery, and install the image that way, although its been several years since I’ve done this, so maybe that’s not a method anymore
It was my understanding that the /e/ installer couldn’t install Android 10?
Noticed I got the 0.17 update on my phone today, but it did not bring my phone up to Android 10 as I expected. Anyone know if it’s working with the easy installer yet? If so I’ll test with my backup device and if successful do my primary after.
If you have already upgraded/updated the Samsung Firmware to android 10.
If /e/OS is running on your device (even e-oreo-stable from the easy-installer)
Than, you have TWRP already installed.
So you are abble to download the e-q-dev-yourdevice.zip on your device memory (internal, or, external)
Reboot the device into recovery mode TWRP
Choose install and point the location of your downloaded file
So I guess the part I’m confused on is upgrading Samsung Firmware to android 10…am I to understand that I need to flash the S9/S9+ back to stock before I can download the e-q build onto my phone?
I’m not sure I have the time or patience to do that especially if Q is eventually going to come to the Easy Installer.
