I’ve been using fairphone open for a few months now, and i’d like to give fairphone os a shot.
At the beginning it was just to give it a try, but after some hours of failures it has become an obsession
I’m using a windows 10 x64 laptop.
So, i followed the going back procedure from here, then i got the infamous warning described there, and that’s an infernal loop procedure from which i didn’t get out yet.
Funny thing is i can run the flash-for-windows.bat script without launching as an admin, and then get the warning loop. But if i run it as admin i get
** Fairphone OS 18.01.1 Manual Flashing Script **
WARNING: Flashing this image wipes all user data and settings on the phone.
Le chemin d’accès spécifié est introuvable.
ERROR: Checksums do not match, try to download the manual update again.
Aborting now (press Enter to terminate).
Appuyez sur une touche pour continuer…
Sorry some sentences are in french, but you get it checksums do not match. I tried to run the mdsum.exe in bin-msys, it pops a terminal where i can see the dark color of the black hole of my own perplexity, and does nothing. I downloaded the zip files three times with the same result.
I then searched for ‘‘fastboot devices’’ and i don’t get anything, i tried fastboot reboot, but again no movements.
After a savage reboot i tried looking for adb devices i get
List of devices attached
I then tried ‘‘adb reboot bootloader’’, and it works i get my phone into fastboot mode. Yet i can’t see the phone with ‘‘fastboot devices’’.
So i guess the problem comes from the fastboot connection, and/or the manual switcher zip file (which i downloaded three times with the same result).
I read somewhere that the phone should be neither in charge, nor mtp options for usb connexion, but i can’t uncheck all boxes.
Please help me ?
