FP3 Issues and Troubleshooting

Hi, I am very happy for FP3 support!
I just installed /e/OS on FP3. I received an error in the procedure indicated here https://doc.e.foundation/devices/FP3/install.

I changed

$ fastboot -w


$ fastboot erase cache

getting this error:

erasing ‘cache’…
FAILED (remote: Partition table doesn’t exist

and with

$ fastboot erase userdata

returned status OKAY.

I am on Debian 10. FP3 has now started and seems to be working. I will update the post after usage test. Thank you!

I got a similar error on Mac OS:

./fastboot -w

Will this cause me any trouble later on?

My phone works very well despite the error made during installation. I just have a couple of small problems with audio on video calls and LiveDisplay: display’s color temperature doesn’t change at all. I will report a bug next days. Overall I’m very satisfied with /e/!

Yeah, that’s already known and issues exist in the bug tracker: LiveDisplay doesn't work on Fairphone 3

Hi lkesjbnrti,
since I couldn’t find any indication searching the internet and my phone was new, I ignored the error

erasing ‘cache’…
FAILED (remote: Partition table doesn’t exist

and moved on to the next command:

fastboot flash system.img

and then all the others as indicated in the installation guide. I had no further problems with the procedure. My phone was new, never used. Now after a few days of use I can say that I have no major problems. Unfortunately, I can’t give you any more details. I’m just a beginner at this. Hope helps!
