Warning Message when Booting

ethOS on a non-native OEM

When you boot up ethOS for the first time or any restart you may see this message.

Don't be alarmed!

We are an open-source operating system, building on open source hardware / forking open source software. At the moment we do not have a native OEM for phones, which is why this message gets displayed.

This is normal expected behavior as ethOS is not the native operating system for the Google Pixel device. There is nothing wrong with the device.

To boot:

  1. Ignore the message and click through the power buttons
  2. The system should boot normally

In the future, we may have a hardware device which is ethOS native, and as such you will not see this message.
