However, if you are an advanced user, you will be happy to know that you can unlock the bootloader of your FP3(+) to install alternative operating systems.
You can read more about Open source software on our dedicated webpage on alternative operating systems for Fairphone devices.
/e/ OS - For advanced users
The e.Foundation has made available a developer version of its /e/ OS for Fairphone 3(+). To get support on /e/ OS, you will have to contact directly /e/ Foundation.
In case you need more information, instructions, and help, you can consult:
- our community on the forum.
- the forum of the manufacturer of the different OS (also called custom ROM).
For Fairphone 2, we offered Fairphone Open, an OS with no Google services pre-installed. Fairphone Open will NOT work on the FP3(+).
What about the warranty?
Fairphone supports only Fairphone OS. If you need our assistance, you first need to revert to Fairphone OS to restore the original warranty.
We state the terms and conditions in the Fairphone 3(+) Warranty (section 6. Claiming your warranty).
How do I go back to Fairphone OS?
To go back to Fairphone OS, you can follow the article Manually install Fairphone OS on FP3(+).
