Our team is happy to announce that from now on you can install /e/OS on your Fairphone 4. We are extremely excited to make a step together with @Fairphone towards an even more sustainable smartphone that cares about your data privacy.
@ff7 @e_mydata Why not buying a Fairphone 4 with /e/?
@bastian @e_mydata @Fairphone honestly, I did never investigate. This makes sense. My opinion was, that every fp is shipped with /e/ installed. I did never work with /e/ nor "standard" android,. Therefore I thought, I was configuring an /e/ based phone. Shame on me - oh noooo.... ;))
But still - anyway - who does ship such a phone with gockel??
@ff7 @e_mydata Currently, the FP4 is not supported by /e/s easy-installer.
Fairphone ships a pretty standard Android these times. I recommend /e/ to most people, but there are still things to explain. For example, I do not use the built-in app store of /e/ which seems to redistribute APKs from the Play Store and F-Droid. I recommend using F-Droid and Aurora Store.
@bastian @e_mydata @Fairphone *kopfschüttel* um den Bootloader zu entsperren braucht's einen Code. Den erhält man durch Eingabe von IMEI und Seriennummer hier https://www.fairphone.com/en/bootloader-unlocking-code-for-fairphone-3/ #grübelwozudasgutseinsoll
