I installed E on a Galaxy A5 2016 with image e-0.13-p-2020120789008-dev-a5xelte.zip (I think 0.14 was not available, although it is now…) and it works fine. There is also an update (OTA): e-0.14-p-2021012698470, but when I update, it hangs in a bootloop.
Is there some sort of solution for this? Or should I try reinstalling with e-0.14-p-2021012698470-dev-a5xelte.zip ?
Any one with a device where the OTA did not work can you try and do a clean install of the v0.14 and check if that build boots. This would require data backup first.
Wanted to confirm if it is the OTA part that is broken.
Hi ! I have the exact same issue (A5 2016), but the problem is that I don’t know how to get out of the loop. It keeps showing the samsung logo, then black screen, then logo again, etc. Long press on power button does nothing, same for power + volume up / down…
A suggestion to try is not a workaround solution for me.
You know as well as I do that one and the same action on two same device models do not have to have the same success. Even if there are no component differences on the manufacturer’s data sheet of the device, there may be an unknown associated with a different production date of devices.Only devices with one and the same production date can be considered 100% identical.
I actually reinstalled the e-0.13-p-2020120789008-dev-a5xelte.zip version, so the phone works fine again. I’m still in testing phase and it’s not my main phone, so I don’t mind erasing data so much, although next time I will test some of the other possible fixes.
