Okay we just removed the battery and reinserted it again but its still stuck in this fastboot mode. Some specs below the red fastboot mode line are being shown, the last line is the red device state locked.
with the volume keys I can select between:
restart bootloader (red)
recovery mode (red)
power off (white)
Thats all. Before I removed the battery I had already tried the normal START and restrat boot loader and power off.
All leading nowhere but again to this fastboot(?) state when turning it back on or rebooting it.
Any more hints?
With selecting start , it briefly vibrates and displays the fairphone and powered by android logos, and then back into this START page…
I now also tried the recovery mode selection, and it pretty much immediately briefly vibrates and then returns back to this start and selection page with specs info.
Is this phone now completely hosed? what the heck? how is this even possible???
