I am trying to install /E/ to an Essential Ph-1. I’m retiring my Pixel 1 with /E/
I reset the Essential Ph-1 with a factory reset. This is Android 10 and the last update Essential sent out. Android 10 with security update February 2020.
I enabled developer options and turned on USB debugging and OEM unlock. I have rebooted the phone a couple of times and checked OEM unlock and USB debugging are still enabled.
When I reboot into bootloader with adb the screen says: DEVICE STATE=locked.
I did get the trust screen on the phone to trust the computer and checked always. The computer is Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and I’ve checked plugdev and udev rules. I think the problem is the bootloader is still locked.
Once it reboots to bootloader I can only see the device if I use sudo fastboot devices. I can see the phone in adb without using sudo.
