At least, it seems to me that is should be changed to was.
The workaround for the occuring problem:
couldn’t parse partition size ‘0x’ Did only work partly. The thing that finally worked was to use the command:
Fastboot flash boot_a boot.img
Without the previous commands, so in total:
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash boot_a boot.img
fastboot flash vendor vendor.img
fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
fastboot flash product product.img
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot flashing lock
Otherwise the phone would not boot at all.
