Leaving Apple & Google:
/e/OS “Easy Installer” in alpha, /e/OS soon on Fairphone3 and PinePhone, now available on Galaxy S8 & other fresh news…

Important information about COVID-19

As COVID-19 is affecting everyone around the world, it’s our responsibility to ask you to suspend the organization of any physical meetup or event related to /e/, at least until the situation gets better.
Instead, we recommend to organize some virtual events using videoconferencing tools, chats, etc. We are thinking about how we can help this to structure at best and provide appropriate content.
Continuity of service: we are doing our best to ensure that /e/ online services, including online storage at ecloud.global, search engine at spot.ecloud.global, and our Android application installer work as usual.
So far, our project has grown with distributed workforce from various countries around the world, therefore our daily operations are not impacted for now.
Also, orders and shipments of /e/OS smartphones are still up and running and we don’t anticipate stock disruptions for the foreseeable future.

/e/OS “Easy Installer” is arriving!

After several months of development, the /e/OS installer is going through its final refinements! It will let anyone skip the obscure process of flashing their phone by command-line and install /e/OS on any supported device in a matter of minutes.
The software will be available on Linux, Mac or Windows. Installation will be as easy as plugging the smartphone via USB and following the on-screen instructions. Currently in alpha test, it will be released for a selection of devices by the end of March, 2020. Learn more here…

/e/OS on new devices!

We are working on porting /e/OS on Fairphone 3! It will be an official build, and a beta can be expected later in April!
We are also working on porting to Pinephone, and we are very happy to announce that /e/OS is now supported on Galaxy S8. It’s in beta but so far everything seems to work well. Expect it for the S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 in a near future.

/e/OS needs translators…

Want to help translating various parts of /e/ OS? We have a new tool and documentation for this!
