I’m trying to flash a Google Pixel 5a, the directions are a bit confusing , under temporarily booting a custom recovery using fastboot it says to download custom recovery and downlad the file name vendor_boot.img then in step 5 it says to Flash a recovery image so I flashed the recovery-e-1.7-s-20230110250406-dev-barbet.img and it transferred the file over phone but the phone stays in fastboot mode, restarting it or restart in recovery just brings it back to fastboot. Device state: unlocked. Boot slot:a Enter reason: error boot prepare
So I reflashed Android 11 and tried to flash the vendor_boot.img file. It shows the google logo on white background briefly then goes back to fastboot mode. What do I try next?
