List will be updated in case the build fails for specific devices
Installation Tip for /e/R
Devices with Stock 11 ROM should flash the stock ROM first before flashing /e/ R .
Pl note this will wipe out your existing data. Take backups if required.
Manual upgrade is required as the default Updater application does not upgrade the OS and on detecting a different OS tends to block the installation. Read the next section for details
To find your device codename you can run this command in the console of an adb enabled PC with you phone connected via a usb data cable
$ adb shell getprop ro.product.device
OS OTA Upgrade Testing
Status: On Track
Release planned for stable s9 s9+ users who are still on oreo
OS OTA will not work for the dev Oreo s9 / S9+ builds.
Update will work only on the variant with ‘F’ in the device codename which is the international variant for e.g. SM-G960F
OS OTA will not work if the device is the Korean variant …denoted by the ‘N’ in the device for e.g. SM-G960N
Release planned in a couple of weeks. We had an issue where fingerprint set to unlock the device before upgrading got lost post the upgrade. Another issue was the dialer icon would move out of the dock post the upgrade. Fix being integrated to the build.
ETA after 2-3 weeks.
MURENA- the Brand name for /e/OS
Last week we shared the Brand name for /e/OS products and services. It is Murena.
The name comes from a eel-like fish …there is a slight difference in the spelling do not want the fishes to file for copyright violations
The name will be used going forward to publicize our smartphones and the ecloud services we provide. /e/OS will continue to be the OS name in the source code.
The transition to the new name across our websites and channels will be done gradually. As also will the internet search-ability of the name. The immediate changes are visible on our eSolutions Shop
/e/ is a very worthy pursuit, increasingly so every month.
It’s in all (everyone across the world) our best interests for projects like /e/ to succeed.
Wishing everyone behind Murena the best of luck, may it reward you for your effort and be a successful adventure for all involved.
Thanks @mike_from_ireland …on our side we would like to thank our users who with their feedback, suggestions and encouragement have guided us every step of the way. There is a lot still left to improve but we are getting there one step at a time.
I’m waiting since more than 2 months for bugfixes which should be provided with v0.19, which is now delayed again due to UI problems. Is UI consistency so much more important than usability? Or am I overlooking and underrating the UI issues? Wouldn’t it be possible to roll out v0.191 with bugfixes and some lacking UI-changes and v0.192 with all changes?
TeamViewer asks for permission, can this be bypassed or have a setting to auto-allow?
Sometimes I want to do something on my phone I left in my room and from computer I can do this (on my other phone) but not on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ /e/ 0.18 Android 10…
According to the internet it’s not TeamViewer asking, and it’s not caused by /e/ particularly.
This also happens with other casting Apps and across devices and their Android OSes. For those affected it seems to have come with Android 10.
Just to be sure … What exactly does it say there in Settings - About phone - Android version (tap on it) - /e/ version?
Since upgrade OTA to V19 I experiance signifikant battery drainage. It is not possible anymore to load the battery more than say 30 to 40%. Restarting phone results eventually in crashes of the launcher. No apps running in background no settings changed. Fairphone 3+ Form e-store with Android 10.
