It has taken a long long journey, but i have a Fairphone in my hands here in Uruguay now.
I am attempting to install Open Os and encountering this error message:
ERROR: Could not flash the system partition on device 7d98b0e5.
ERROR: Please unplug the phone, take the battery out, boot the device into
ERROR: fastboot mode, plug in the phone, and start this script again.
ERROR: (To get to fastboot mode, press Volume-Down and Power until the)
ERROR: (Fairphone logo appears.)
Aborting now (press Enter to terminate).
After pressing enter, it reads: process complete. And now the phone is stuck in a fastboot screen. Long-holding the power button simply has this screen flash and return.
What to do now?
I do not have a computer, as an additional note… am using the (mac) computer of a friend temporarily at my disposal. However, I will also be able to use a neighbor’s computer if necessary, going forward. My Fairphone is essesntially, hopefully going to be all the computer that I need.
I simply want to run it Sans ghoulgle and then use it for what’s app or another messaging service, searching the internet and email…but perhaps once or twice per month. I am neither adept with technology, nor inept, but this is challenging to me.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
