Hi, I’m a noob at installing phone OSes so I really have no idea what is wrong but either way I’ve followed the instructions of the easy-installer (as well as downgraded to android 11 with the google android flash website) and now the easy-installer tells me to select recovery mode with the volume keys and validate with power. But when I do it the screen just goes dark for a little bit and I end up back on the same menu (it has a red warning sign and says “Fastboot Mode”
I’d be greatful if someone has any insight
Edit: I don’t even know if its safe to unplug the phone and try again at this point. Can I do that?
This recent issue applies to
We see in this part of Easy Installer https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/devices/easy-installer/-/blob/master/src/main/resources/yaml/sunfish_fs.yml?ref_type=heads that the url for collection of your download is url: https://images.ecloud.global/dev/sunfish/e-latest-s-sunfish.zip.
So your issue is quite likely that you prepared your phone for Android 11 but Easy Installer is trying to install Android 12 (S). (Lower case s in filename.)
It will not be “unsafe” to unplug your phone.
recovery are compromised it can often happen that a phone will boot into fastboot only.
Are you able to recover the phone with Android flash tool ?
You might share the log first to see if we can see what happened.
Thank you for the advice.
I was able to recover the phone with the android flash tool, so that’s a relief.
However I couldn’t mark the text in the log to copy it and my ~/snap/easy-installer/ directory doesn’t have a /common/ directory in it. I tried searching for a .log file but I couldn’t find one.
If I assume that the problem is that its trying to install android 12 instead, should I just give up on the easy-installer and use the command line install instead?
EDIT: nvm im a moron, I wasn’t even looking in the home snap directory. I will attach the log i found.
Yes, under the circumstances manual install https://doc.e.foundation/devices/sunfish/install is the way to go.
I followed the manual install guide and now I’ve successfully installed /e/os on this phone. Thank you so much for your help!
