/e/ is Gaël Duval’s project to build a privacy-oriented smartphone
distribution; the first beta is
now available
with support for a number of devices. “At our
current point of development, we have an ‘/e/’ ROM in Beta stage: forked
from LineageOS 14.1, it can be installed on several devices (read the
list
). The number of supported devices will grow over time, depending on
more build servers and more contributors who can maintain or port to
specific devices (contributors welcome). The ROM includes microG configured
by default with Mozilla NLP so users can have geolocation functionality
even when GPS signal is not available.
