About /e/:
/e/ is an a mobile ecosystem (ROM + onlines services) that:

is open source
is pro-privacy
is compatible with most existing Android applications
cares about usability
is as far as possible freed from shackles by Google and OEMs
already exists!

It’s the alternative to the Apple/Google duopoly on the smartphone.

... so again and just to be clear: /e/ is not just a ROM, it is more a complete privacy ecosystem and consists of:

an installable mobile operating system for smartphones, which is forked from Android and strongly “ungoogled”
a set of sorted and improved default open source applications
various online services that are linked to the mobile operating system, such as: a meta search engine for the web, drive (with synchronization), mail, calendar, notes, tasks.


Features:
Based on the stable Lineage OS 17.1
microG fully pre-installed with Signature Spoofing in restricted mode!
All features described on the /e/ page: What is e
All features and fixes of our LOS 17.1 builds (Whatawurst team).
No OTA suppport for now.

What works:
Same as Whatawurst team LOS 17.1 build

Known issues:
/e/ Q is still in development stage (still, stable enough for a daily driver with no bugs). So you may still see one or two calls to Google servers until the Q branch is official.
You tell me
Same as Whatawurst team LOS 17.1 build

SECURITY ADVICE

Don't flash Magisk modules or anything else which sets SELinux to permissive or you open your device for malware!
Do not flash Multi Disabler on this ROM!


Requirements:
Latest TWRP build.
Do a full Nandroid backup before doing anything!



Installation:
If this is your first time flashing a rom, or not coming from @modpunk LOS 17.1 build, please follow the same steps than their detailed installation process

Otherwise:
Full clean install is highly recommended. DO NOT REPORT ISSUES when you have skipped that step!
Flash /e/
Optional (if you want root): Flash Magisk
Flashing OpenGapps ????? NO No no! you don't want that on a google-free phone! /e/ contains everything you need to live without Google! So flashing OpenGapps on /e/ is like using a bit more secure LOS but that's not the point of /e/. Either try without or go with LOS (imho).
Boot it (will take a bit on first boot!!! be patient!)
Enjoy the most easy way to have a privacy focused and google-free phone!

Please note that I don't own the device and am not a dev. Just an Android enthusiast who knows how to build ROM's based on existing sources and loves privacy.

I built this version for someone I know who's about to buy a S10e and wants /e/ on it.

Please give me your feedback. This will be highly appreciated.

Changelog 11/25/2020:
Updating builds based on modpunk's LOS 17.1 V1.3
Changing the way proprietary blobs are integrated into the zip (hopefully fix the robotic voice on bluetooth calls)
S10e build uploaded on 11/25/2020
S10/S10+ uploaded on 11/26/2020

Changelog 11/08/2020:
Re-uploaded builds, manually replaced the vendor files in the .zip using the official from Whatawurst LOS builds as it seems my build method did not populate properly vendor.

I guess format data is required? With regular wipe data, cache, dalvik and system it's stuck on boot logo (powered by android i mean).

Are you encrypted? While for the bootloader version and firmware, please refer to the thread below; I used their sources:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...rom-lineageos-17-1-beta0-s10e-update-t4076585

As I told previously, I am not a dev unfortunately. I just build using existing sources proven to work.

edit: Seems yes, format data is required. This is mentioned in their FAQ.

Install LinageOS

copy the ROM ZIP file an external SD card
Boot into the recovery
Wipe cache + dalvik (wipe->advanced and select cache + dalvik)
Format data (wipe->format data, use the dedicated button, wipe->advanced does not work)
Flash the ROM (install -> select storage -> micro SD card and select the .zip file)
Optional: Flash GAPPS (e.g. OpenGAPPS)
Reboot to system

I took modpunk sources to build /e/. But I fear my vendor.img is missing some things (my vendor.img are about 17Mo while his are up to 120Mo).

Need to figure out what and why.

Don't know if it could be doable to repack the /e/ zip with the vendor files from modpunk builds zips.

I don't know the S10.

Gotta sleep. Good luck and keep in touch tomorrow.

Is it possible to upgrade from modpunks lineageos 17.1 without format data partition?

    waited both times nearly an hour, but still on triangle page.
    Would make sence to try, the earlier version (20201107)?
    .. thanks a lot .. (twice, because I missed it before:)

    Ah good, your answer is still here!!

    How about checking the md5 on your PC, is the output OK compared with the md5sum files available on the drive?

    Thanks
    Hi, sorry for the delay in answering, I haven't been able to log in so re-registered.
    I checked the md5 and they matched. After installing modpunks LOS 17.1 I thought I would try the earlier build of your /e/ os and it installed without a problem.
    Been using it for a few days and have had no issues.
    Thankyou

    Well, new attempt uploaded for the S10+ (beyond2lte).

    There are two builds on 12/13/2020.
    - e-0.13-q-20201213-UNOFFICIAL-beyond2lte.zip ==> the one to test first, with my hopefully fixed vendor
    - e-0.13-q-20201213-UNOFFICIAL-beyond2lte_mpv.zip ==> Same as above, but with manually replaced vendor.img, using modpunk's latest build one.

    Can someone test and report if it boots? @trendgegner maybe?

    Download folder, same as usual.

    Thank you Anghirrim for your great work !

    I should receive my S10e by the end of next week, and since my existing phone (Xiaomi) is still working perfectly fine, I will be happy to assist with doing some testing on my S10e for couple of days if needed.

    I'll keep an eye on the thread to see if there are more tests needed by the end of next week.

    Also, I have another question :
    I saw that modpunk will stop updating his LOS 17.1 image, and will start working on LOS 18.1.
    But since /e/ does not support LOS18.1 yet, what are your plans ? Do you consider switching to Ivan_Meler's LOS17.1 version ?
    I guess switching to Ivan's version would be the only way to keep the security patches up to date, no ?
