What is the /e/OS easy-installer?

  • The Easy Installer is a Java desktop application which helps users install /e/ on supported devices.

  • In its current version the tool is a GUI which works on the Linux OS

  • The easy-installer beta version supports 6 Samsung devices
    • Samsung Galaxy S6 – Exynos only
    • Samsung Galaxy S7 – Exynos only
    • Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge – Exynos only
    • Samsung Galaxy S8 – Exynos only
    • Samsung Galaxy S9 – Exynos only
    • Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus – Exynos only

Why are more devices and OS not supported?

The /e/ team cannot support all the work needed to add more devices or other operating systems. That’s why we ask the community to help us on:

  • Porting the Easy Installer to MacOS
    • the java software should run without big issues
    • but script need to be ported
  • Support new devices
    • with its architecture based configuration files, it is easy to add new devices
    • we share details on how you can add more devices in this document
