/e/ OS One-Click Installer

Be aware: Using those One-Click Installers on your device might void your warranty.

While you may find more supposedly easy “One-Click Installer” on the internet and the Play Store, the only one I could validate to work and not being some kind of malware is from /e/ Foundation. It currently is in development, but already works great for a bunch of very popular devices.

There are two downsides though: The only system you can install with it is, obviously, /e/OS. This ain’t a problem if you ask me since /e/ is a great choice, but of course it’s part of your process of choice. The other thing is the currently missing support for MacOS. They offer installers for Windows and Linux.

Also feel free to join the /e/ Forum or just scroll through it. It’s a very friendly and welcoming Community, and you might also find me there. 🙂
