I’ve installed UT on my wife’s FP4, she doesn’t like it, arghh
I’ve tried to install FP factory OS but no luck. Device is unlocked
The following is the error given:
ERROR: The critical partitions are not unlocked.
Please refer to our support articles for help.
ERROR: Aborting now (press Enter to terminate).
So I though that I could try something else and this time I’ve tried CalyxOS and come up with another error:
5.1. Please use the volume and power keys on the device to unlock the bootloader (critical) -
Failed to unlock (critical) FP4 ed42d694 bootloader
Iv’e tried fastboot flashing unlock_critical
But nothing works
What’s the output of
fastboot oem device-info && fastboot flashing get_unlock_ability
Are you still able to boot the phone into UT?

output < waiting for any device >

Did you try another USB cable? Are you sure it’s a data cable? Does it work to transfer data through it when UT is running?
Did you try another USB port?
What’s the OS of the computer you’re using? If Linux did you use sudo in front of the rest of the command? If windows, did you start it from a command shell with admin rights?

Thanks for your comments.
Yes I can transfer data.
OS is Debian and I did use sudo
And I suppose you’ve really been in fastboot mode (green START at the top of the screen and red information about unlocked state at the bottom) when you typed in the fastboot commands, right?

That is correct, big START in green and all that. Just for curiosity I’ve tried to install UT again on top of UT and it let me do it…
That sounds like the usual
fastboot USB problems, try different cables / ports until it shows up under
