It might not make a big difference for a LOS installation, but to my knowledge the minimal adb & fastboot were the source of plenty of installation problems in the /e/ forum. IIRC it misses mke2fs which is needed for fastboot -w (part of the /e/ install instructions).
Hi, I’ve done LineageOS installs before on other phones, but this is my first time doing it with the Fairphone. I’m following your guide but also keeping an eye on the official LineageOS guide here Install LineageOS on FP3 | LineageOS Wiki - it gets a bit confusing when the 2 guides differ.
Anyway, I’ve gotten as far as step 6 using LineageOS-Recovery. Step 1 factory reset was fine, but I’m confused about step 2 where it says:
Now, navigate back to the main menu and choose Apply update → Apply from ADB
Which main menu are you referring to here? I don’t see this option either in the Fastboot menu or in the Android menus.
Also neither adb devices nor fastboot devices are showing me any device listed when I boot into the Fastboot menu. I’m guessing that’s a problem, right?
No, not really. I think the guide was reviewed by a lot of community members
I just removed the alpha-tag. Although I’d like to change a few things and synchronize it with the revised guide from LineageOS. But my time is a bit limited atm…
Hi, thanks a lot for the guide. Looks like the official install guide as well as the present wiki are outdated when they instruct us to
Open Minimal ADB and Fastboot and enter the command fastboot boot RECOVERY-FILENAME.img
The suggestion below seems to do the job, since I also entered the same kind of command, with the added _a (except that I did it also with an added _b)
Also, regarding section 6. Rooting your FP3/FP3+ (optional), alas this is not possible AFAIK, since the new Magisk method provide no zip file any more. The Magisk app wants an img to patch. In LineageOS, we only have one img file, and it’s lineage-17.1-20210719-recovery-FP3.img. Is it the right file to give to Magisk App? And then what should be do with this patched image?
