🇫🇷 🇬🇧 Installation /e/ sur fairphone 3

Bonjour,
J’espère que mon sujet n’a pas été traité ailleurs, j’ai cherché sans succès :

J’essaie d’installer /e/ sur mon fairphone, mais je bloque toujours au même endroit après plusieurs tentatives :

Je suis sur mac, j’ai bien activé fastboot et adb sur mon ordinateur, j’ai dévérouillé le bootloader et activé le débogage USB de mon appareil.

Je bloque juste à l’installation de /e/ sur le téléphone : j’ai téléchargé le zip sur mon mac (IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3), mais la commande
unzip IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3
ne fonctionne pas. Je peux certes dézipper manuellement, mais après aucune commande ne fonctionne, à partir de celle-ci
fastboot flash system_a system.img -S 522239K
, rien ne marche. Je ne suis pas très à l’aise avec l’utilisation du terminal, merci de vos conseils pour résoudre ces difficultés !
Bien cordialement,

Hello,
I hope that my subject has not been treated elsewhere, I have searched without success:

I try to install /e/ on my fairphone, but I always get stuck in the same place after several attempts:

I’m on mac, I did enable fastboot and adb on my computer, I unlocked the bootloader and enabled USB debugging on my device.

I just get stuck installing /e/ on the phone: I downloaded the zip on my mac (IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3), but the command
unzip IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3
does not work. I can certainly unzip manually, but then no command works, from this one
fastboot flash system_a system.img -S 522239K
nothing works. I am not very comfortable with using the terminal, thank you for your advice to solve these difficulties!
Sincerely,

Welcome to the forum. It is over a year since I carried out this procedure upon my Mac, but no reason to assume that OSX BigSur has introduced complications.
Is IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3.zip currently residing in “Downloads”? You can use default “Archive Utility” to decompress to get IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3, which you have already done to get the eight .img

If I were you as my “Downloads” folder is cluttered, create a new folder on Desktop (ctrl key + mouse click) and name it FP3 or whatever. Drag IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3 from “Downloads” to your newly created folder.

Open Terminal upon Mac then type cd / and drag newly created folder with mouse into terminal window, it then shows path to folder so in my case:
iMac-2:~ adrian$ cd //Users/adrian/Desktop/MobilePhones/FP3eOS
iMac-2:FP3eOS adrian$

Can’t remember whether you should be “sudo” with # instead of $ at the moment.

I am guessing that you didn’t point to IMG-e-0.17-q-20210621120947-stable-FP3 in “Terminal”, but forgive me if assumption is incorrect, Presumably fastboot and adb were installed via “Homebrew” upon your Mac?

Thanks for the quick answer. Yes I installed adb and fasboot via homebrew, and the fastboot and adb devices commands point to my FP3. But it’s the next step that doesn’t work…

I understood that I had to point in the terminal to the folder that contains my unzipped file.

Then, I put my phone in fastboot mode, I make the command lines but it blocks again from the second fastboot flash system_a system.img -S 522239K
This is what my terminal displays.

If you have an idea of what can block…

The terminal says it can’t find the file system.img.
If you are sure the file is in the folder you are operating in with the terminal, try ./system.img instead of system.img, this should force the terminal to get the file from the current folder.

Parfait ça a marché ! Merci beaucoup pour la réactivité des réponses !

Glad that issue now sorted for you and for the record “sudo” is not needed by the way:

Bonjour,
Je tente également d’installer /e/ sur mon fairphone, cependant je ne peux obtenir mon code de déverouillage sur la plateforme : Bootloader Unlocking Code for Fairphone 3 - Fairphone
En effet, en renseignant les bons numéros IMEI & de série, j’obtiens un message d’erreur me disant que l’un ou l’autre sont faux, or ce n’est pas le cas…
Avez-vous déjà été confronté à ce cas ? Comment puis-je malgré tout obtenir ce code pour procéder à l’installation /e/ ?

Merci d’avance pour vos retours,
