I recently bought an fairphone 4 and wanted to install a degoogled OS.
I decided to go with iode and followed the (sparse) instructions on this site:
[iodéOS installation - iodé]
All went (reasonably) well till i got to step 9 relocking the bootloader.
running fastboot flashing unlock unlocks the bootloader and I’m able to reinstall iode, so at least i haven’t bricked anything (yet).
So at the moment i have a fairphone 4 with iode and unlocked bootloader
As i am a total smatphone noob, I’m not sure what to do at this point.
Is there a better tutorial available on how to relock the bootloader, or did i just follow the wrong instructions?
is this still the proposed action: to install an old version and then upgrade later? I tried version iode-2.4-20220407-FP4. And trying to lock the boot loader at the end I twice was in panic mode. Once when I first went into endless boot-loop after “fastboot flashing lock”. And the second time when I tried the forth or fifth time to get instead of the known “verified boot” warning but the error message “boot corrupt”…
By some other forum posts I was able to find “getvar all” showing these results
and having a “fastboot --set-active=a” at least I could reinstall again. To avoid any additional panic moment and in favor to start using my new phone I’d like to get this unlock/lock issue solved - any safe path
