This is the latest new ROM, i.e. /e/ 0.1 ROM for MT6580 Kernel 3.18.35. The ROM is still running on Nougat kernel, i.e 3.18.35 and all the major bugs have been fixed. This is the most stable build. This ROM is officially ported for CM Flare J3 Lite and can be ported to any device with chipset MT6580 & kernel 3.18.35 using our official porting guide given below.
There are many reasons why free and open source software is great. It allows someone to take a project and evolve it into something else that they see fit. Naturally, they have to follow the proper licenses that come with those projects, but when done right we can get software projects like /e/. /e/ is a fork of LineageOS that aims to be completely free of everything Google.
Note: We re not the developer of any ROM in this website neither we are from any particular group. The purpose of this website is to distribute the ROM, so many other users can try it.
What is /e/ ?
/e/ is a Google-free LineageOS fork for several devices from Google, OnePlus, Xiaomi, and others.
/e/ is a Google-free fork of LineageOS with this first beta being based on version 14.1. The ROM comes bundled with microG by default with the Mozilla Network Location Provider backend so location functionality will work even without GPS. The mail app is forked from K9 mail, the SMS app is Signal, the default chat app is Telegram (or you can use Signal), there’s a weather app, a note-taking app, a tasks app, and a map app (that, unfortunately, isn’t open source yet.) The account manager allows you to choose a single /e/ account for all services. The search engine is a fork of Searx, but Qwant and DuckDuckGo are available alternatives in the default browser (LineageOS’ Jelly.)
Depending on the addition of more build servers and more contributors who can maintain or port to specific devices, they are hoping to see the list of supported devices grow. Speaking of, here is the official list of devices that can test out this first beta of /e/ right now.
