Dear fellow users of FairPhone,
Today I was brave enough to install LineageOS for MicroG on my FP3 by following these guides:
1 LineageOS for microG
2 Install LineageOS on FP3 | LineageOS Wiki
3 ✏ [ALPHA] FP3/FP3+: Complete guide for installing LineageOS
After sorting stuff out, like installing adb and Fatsboot on Linux Mint 20.1c, and unclocking the OEM with Bootloader Unlocking Code for Fairphone 3 - Fairphone instead of using the ‘old’ methode* here ✏ FP3: unlock the bootloader, I was able to move on. With the (un)surprising result, that I have now fully access to a fresh FP3 with LineageOS as Recovery methode. The only problem that I have now is that the WiFi keeps turning itself off.
*The old methode did not provide my a correct code. I have tried this methode twice, once before and after resetting the FP3.
But now I am stuck at the Preinstall instructions of Install LineageOS on FP3 | LineageOS Wiki
- Download the
copy-partitions-20210323_1922.zipfile from here.
- Sideload the
And I am also stuck at steps 5.6.1 and 2, of ✏ [ALPHA] FP3/FP3+: Complete guide for installing LineageOS :
- Navigate to Factory reset → Format data/factory reset
- Now, navigate back to the main menu and choose Apply update → Apply from ADB
My question are:
A) Do I have to do the Preinstall instructions, because those are not mentioned on 3 ✏ [ALPHA] FP3/FP3+: Complete guide for installing LineageOS
B) How do I apply step 5.6.1 and 2?
C) Do I have to do something else, before turning my FP3 into a brick? Because some guides only refer to Windows, and I am using Linux Mint 20.1c…
