I installed LOS 19 (android 12) on my recently purchased FP3+ and been using it for a while without problems.
Then I needed to root it so I could run some apps that require root access.
It did not work and now the FP3+ gets stuck in a boot loop in the fastboot mode, with a screen display somewhat comparable to this one here (apart there’s no BOOTLOADER VERSION and BASEBAND VERSION displayed and some lines such as HW_CHIP and GEN_PACK are not here).
Whatever action I choose, I revert back to the same screen.
From my Ubuntu 22.04 computer, I can’t connect with adb, but fastboot can do things on the FP3+ such as reboot the FP3+.
For instance, here what’s displayed when I try to flash boot the LOS19 recovery image:
$ fastboot flash boot lineage-19.1-20220822-recovery-FP3.img Sending 'boot' (65536 KB) OKAY [ 1.607s] Writing 'boot' FAILED (remote: 'partition table doesn't exist')
The remote error message ‘partition table doesn’t exist’ lend me to this post.
I followed the suggestion to flash again TWRP which I downloaded as of version 3.6.2_9-0:
$ sudo fastboot boot twrp-3.6.2_9-0-FP3.img Sending 'boot.img' (30924 KB) OKAY [ 0.743s] Booting FAILED (remote: 'unknown reason') fastboot: error: Command failed
Then I tried to follow the guide FP3(+). Install Fairphone OS offline where we can read in the Preliminary steps:
- Download onto your computer (pay attention to Android version):
Pay attention to Android version, alright but where can I find the …fastbootimage.zip for Android 12?
In other words, is there a way I can boot again my FP3+ under LOS19 as installed since some days now?
I’d like not to loose all my stuff on it, BTW.
Thanks for reading.
