That shouldn’t make a difference, I always run adb reboot / fastboot reboot instead of using the menu when flashing devices
But since I wanted to test what happens if you don’t reboot anyways, might as well test if there is different behaviour somewhere
I’ll follow this up in the other topic, since I’m only testing FPOS on the other device for now.
Edit: Just to clarify this part:
get_unlock_ability gets reset on the first regular boot, so once you reached full userspace it’s already too late. Or did you mean something else with extended boot menu?
My thoughts were as fallows:
Is there maybe a difference to reboot, after first restart, in bootloader to unlock to bootloader if you restart via extended boot menu “long press power buttton/restart/bootloader” or via “adb reboot bootloader”?
Is in both situation the unlock_ability reset to 0?
I’m still not entirely sure what you mean by extended boot menu, sorry.
If we are talking about the menu that pops up when long pressing the power in a regularly running system, you already went to far to prevent it. The same goes for adb reboot, at that point the flag has already been changed.
If you mean the bootloader menu, I have tried every possible way to reboot the phone before the first start, as documented in the other thread. As long as you don’t boot into proper Android it’ll stay on 1, as soon as you start the regular system it’ll change, haven’t found a way around it (yet)
those of your who run Calyx, have you managed to make the phone find the update? I’ve been checking for the past few days with no results. Calyx doesn’t support root and/or unlocked bootloader, so they won’t assist with that.
Nope, it works just fine unlocked
The installer only fails because it’s checking the hashes for the partitions it should be updating and since Magisk changes the boot partition it will stop and throw an error.
good to know that there’s a workaround! out of curiosity though, what images does the “restore” part refer too? is it just the stock boot.img? because it looks like I don’t have it on my device since I just flashed the one you’ve posted earlier in the thread and Magisk complains about about the lack of a stock backup. but if it’s just that, then I guess I’ll just get the one packed in the .zip from the Calyx website and follow the rest of the steps properly.
When you reinstall Magisk, I would go the fastboot boot route, makes OTA updates a lot quicker.
There’s also the option in the app to install Magisk to the other slot after an update and before rebooting, but I haven’t tried that yet. Not sure if Android Verified Boot likes a patched boot partition on the first boot after upgrading
Thanks a lot for all the info. I’ll try to do better with the search function. The thread is very long and both Magisk and bootloader are very common words. But it’s probably best to go through that thread in more detail anyways.
I wish someone would just make a signed rom with root built-in. I don’t get nor do I agree with the notion that having root is inherently less secure. It’s a strawman argument imho, but that’s a discussion for another thread …
