In section named

Getting a fastboot error ?

There are several fastboot commands that start with a upper F: as in Fastboot flash boot boot.img
For copy/paste to work, they should be fastboot.

I am new here, but it seems that recent version of fastboot allows to avoid some problems.

This makes me suggest to remove the 2 messages indicating:

On previous versions of fastboot , the command is fastboot oem unlock

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 -w
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.
