Following the steps described here…
… I tried to manually update Android on my FP2.
The script does not show any errors, it keeps running, and looking at the Linux process I can see that fastboot uses 3 to 4% of CPU and is still active.
But the description on the page linked above tells me
the process will be over in a couple of minutes
so I ask myself after one hour of waiting: How many more minutes to go?
Can anyone help?
fastboot devices provide any output?
are you running the updater as root as well?
No, the instruction didn’t say that. And now I don’t want to stop the running process because this could break the phone (I think).
What’s the last output of flash-for-unix.sh?
Just before it starts sending data, it should say ‘Proceeding to flash the device.’.
In that case I don’t think it has touched the device yet. It should be safe to stop the script.
It may work better running as root - try
fastboot devices without root to see if that throws an error. I think the error handling in the script hasn’t been properly designed to detect permissions errors.
fastboot devices throws a permission error. That’s why I used
But you are sure, it is no problem to stop the script while Fastboot still uses CPU?
Okay, I tried
sudo sh flash-for-unix.sh and now the script continues.
@staff: Who can change the instruction?
Thank you for your help, @Johannes!
Glad it worked out, sorry for not answering the question about CPU usage - I was away from my computer for a while.
