I am trying to install ubuntu although can’t access bootloop mode I have unlocked developer mode but the option to turn on ome bootloop is not there? How can I get my phone into bootloop mode please?
What is bootloop mode? A bootloop is usually a very undesireable status.
Do you mean #dic:fastboot mode aka bootloader? If so you get there by pressing Power and Vol- when the phone is turned off.
Yes sorry bootloader! I have tried power and vol+. Apparently I need to unlock ome but in developer options this does not appear on my phone for some reason?
For fastboot/bootloader it’s actually Power and Vol-
Sorry, my bad. It’s Power and Vol-.
For the Fairphone 2 you don’t have to “oem unlock” as far as I know.
Are you using the Ubports graphical installer or do you try to install manually?
In case you want to use the installer, make sure to use the latest pre-release (0.2.2-beta) because that contains a lot of bugfixes.
Ok I have it working now thanks. Is their any way I can install Whatsapp as I need to get all my contacts oops
Ok i’ve messed up and realised I need certain apps on android so how can I reinstall android (what an idiot)
Don’t judge yourself too harshly. You tried something you were interested in. Didn’t work out. This can happen, but you’ve seen and learned something.
