I don’t know one thing about programming but I am abroad and absolutely need to downgrade the latest upgrade of the operating system as I cannot access any wifi network (which is absolutely unworkable since I’m traveling and need wifi access in certain situations).
Now I have a mac, a data cable (usb-c to micro usb) and developer options enabled on my fp2. I have downloaded the zip file for the previous OS (19/05/3) and the platform tools where there’s a file called fastboot. However there seems to be a missing link somewhere and for the life of me, I can’t figure out where, so if anyone can help me to solve this issue, please react. Here are the details:
When I open the flash-for-mac.command file this is the result:

/Users/tessaxxxx/Downloads/fp2-gms-19.05.3-manual/flash-for-mac.command ; exit;
tessaxxxx@MacBook-van-Tessa ~ % /Users/tessaxxxx/Downloads/fp2-gms-19.05.3-manual/flash-for-mac.command ; exit;
** Fairphone OS 19.05.3 Manual Flashing Script **
ERROR: The ‘fastboot’ command is not available.
ERROR: Please install the ‘fastboot’ tool from your package manager.
Aborting now (press Enter to terminate).
So naturally I assume this has something to do with the fastboot command, which when I open it gives the following message:

/Users/tessaxxxx/Downloads/platform-tools/fastboot ; exit;
tessaxxxx@MacBook-van-Tessa ~ % /Users/tessaxxxx/Downloads/platform-tools/fastboot ; exit;
fastboot: usage: no command
In the guidelines they say to ‘insert’ some kind of command line thing but I can’t figure out where or how to do this…
If anyone with some advanced knowledge on this is available and can help me solve this over skype or some other way of communication, feel free to send me a pm
Thanks and hopefully I can get this shitty thing over with and back on wifi before I completely destroy my fp or just buy a new smartphone
Kind regards and have a nice day!
