Just a quick FYI: Ran into the same boot troubles with 20190824, but simply reverted to my last working version, which was 20190815 in my case. Simply did it with TWRP / Install, navigate do [root]/data/lineageos_updates and choose the latest working version.
No problems down the line, but I do not use gapps
I just did the update (via updater) for 20190825, same result: system is patched, tries to boot into system but end up starting twrp after a couple of minutes.
I’ll gladly test any new packages, if this is of any help…
I downloaded the latest working version 20190823 from https://download.lineageos.org/FP2 to my laptop.
I connected the FP. Windows installed the drivers automatically and then showed the FP2 internal storage and sdcard (to my happy surprise)!
I copied the zip to the phone, disconnected, booted to TWRP (Vol+ + power) and installed the zip.
PS: If I had done this before tempting the restore, I would probably have got everything back as it was.
that helpend for me, did manual flash but also wiped /chache and /dalvik.
I don’t know if the latter caused it but as the phone finally booted into /system I was welcomed
by the initiating phone wizard. All was gone altough I got see eg. WhatsApp folder on the Media partition!
Unfortunately I run also in
I did it like this too. But then the gapps were missing…so i installed then in the same way…now it works probably i think. but i had to install everything again, all apps, do all my preferences again… not funny. did you had to do it also Mark_Looman?
I also tried installing the today’s (27th August) update but I got stuck in a bootloop. so I went back to the previously installed version (released on the 21st). Did anyone venture out and try the which one was the latest stable version?
