Hi! It seems, the installation documentation is outdated. I tried to install /e/ on my Nokia 6.1, but when flashing the recovery image using the command “fastboot flash recovery [filename].img”, I got the error “No such partition”. The exact output in the cmd.exe is:
Sending 'recovery' (36485 KB) OKAY [ 0.801s] Writing 'recovery' FAILED (remote: '(recovery_a) No such partition') fastboot: error: Command failed
Since your install guide is a fork of the LineageOS-guide, I checked that one and found out, they advise to use the command “fastboot flash boot [filename].img”. The reason seems to be that the phones with Android 10 are A/B-partitioned (and the available updates for Nokia 6.1 update the phone to Android 10) without a recovery partition, so one needs to flash recovery to the boot partition instead. I have not tried it yet, but I believe this will be the solution. I think the maintainers should have a look at the install guide and update it.
And since I am not a pro-user, it would be great for me to have the guide updated to the current working state. This way I would be certain that I am doing everything right and not bricking my device.
Thank you for the work you are doing! And great thanks to the maintainers!
