Best way to cleanup FP4 + unroot + enable Microg + lock bootloader - CalyxOS


my FP4 is currently:

  • running CalyOS
  • rooted with Magisk
  • and does not have microG installed

I would like to give it to a Family member and therefor I would like to:

  • clean it up (no need to discuss how to get my data backed up - consider all this as done)
  • unroot it / remove root
  • enable microG

So I was wondering what would be the best approach?

a) “modify the current installation” - approach

  • remove root (uninstall Magisk like I do before an OTA)
  • somehow enable microG (is it even possible afterwards, when I started without?)
  • safely clean everything up → idk e.g.: factory reset it or whatever so that it will start like a fresh CalyOS
  • lock the bootloader

b) “Start from Scratch” - approach

  • factory reset
  • flash CalyxOS again
  • enable microG during setup on a clean way

Finally I need to transfer data from an FP2 (current phone of the Family member) to this FP4 but this is another story.

Feel free to share your thoughts

No need to perform a factory reset, just flash Calyx again, choose microG during the first run setup and you’re good to go :slightly_smiling_face:

And yeah, fresh install, always!
