[SOLVED] Oneplus 6T - installation /e/ KO

Bonjour,
Après avoir suivi le tuto suivant :

Après avoir unlock le bootloader et passer en mode recovery, je suis passé sur l’étape suivante avec l’image officielle twrp :

fastboot devices
 fastboot flash boot twrp.img

J’ai le message que c’est OK mais avec l’info de boot_a et là, je me dis, galère, il y a 2 partitions de boot.
J’avais galéré sur un Xiaomi et je n’aime pas du tout ça …Au final, j’ai surtout pas compris le process de déploiement avec 2 partitions de boot :wink:
Ensuite, je reboot manuellement en mode recovery mais je ne peux être connecté qu’avec fastboot, pas de commande adb, device no connect… Et un reboot classique, m’amène sur l’écran qui me montre que le bootloader est unlock mais je ne peux pas avoir TWRP ou rebooter sur l’OS installé…
J’ai réussi à changer le persist slot sur b et j’ai pu le flasher à l’os d’origine…

Quelqu’un pourrait-il m’apporter des détails pour réussir l’installation de /e/ ?

PS: help me !!! Google is watching meeee !!! :wink:

The command is ‘fastboot flash recovery twrp.img’ for flashing twrp
or
fastboot boot twrp.img for using twrp temporary

Hello @harvey186,
Thx to support my issue.
If i choose to using always twrp, i have to do this : fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Then, the twrp.img will install on boot_a or boot_b ?

martoni

It will be flashed on active partition. Sorry, I have no experience with a/b devices.

Hello,

Thx for all.
So, i tried this :

martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  fastboot devices
f047e788	fastboot
 martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  fastboot getvar current-slot

 martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  fastboot getvar current-slot  
current-slot: b

But, when i reboot with volume down + power, no TWRP…

Hello,

I tried a second time and now, the device no boot…I understand “nothing” with this kind of boot partitions… :frowning_face:
I had to press volume up and down + power to boot
Now, i am at the beginning : screen with options : start, Power off, Recovery mode and restart bootloader

Could you help me?? :slight_smile:

martoni

I followed the official installation guide with success. I only changed one command: I replaced fastboot flash boot twrp-3.3.1-1-fajita.img by fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-1-fajita.img

FYI, I did the installation on a fresh unboxed ONEPLUS A6013 model.

Hello,

I have waiting few minutes and i have the same screen.
With cli, i have got this :

 martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  fastboot devices
 martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  adb devices
List of devices attached

No device, no boot with TWRP…
Then, i tried volume down + power and the device reboot with fastboot mode : new screen with options start, Power off, recovery mode and restart bootloader.
And with cli, i have got this :

 martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  adb devices
List of devices attached

 martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  fastboot devices

Hello,

 ✘ martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  sudo fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-1-fajita.img

 martoni@home10  ~/adb-fastboot/platform-tools  

The same screen with oneplus logo and Fastboot Mode but no twrp boot…

Could you help me ?

martoni

Found here: https://doc.e.foundation/devices/fajita/install

Temporarily flash a recovery on your device by typing:

 fastboot flash boot <recovery_filename>.img

Hello @zero,

When you did this : sudo fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-1-fajita.img

After, what kind of screen did you have on your phone and what did you do ?

thx

martoni

First, it’s strange that you don’t see your device when you type adb devices. I think this is the root cause of your issue…

I don’t remember well but I think that my phone was in fastboot mode. I typed the flashboot boot command and then the phone restarted automaticly recovery mode (with TWRP).

Well done!

What did you change? Only the TWRP image?
If I’m not wrong, you installed TWRP from Android 10 whereas I did from Android 9. This may be the explanation…

Hello,
Yes, with a new twrp.img from another source, and next :

sudo fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-32-fajita-Q-mauronofrio.img

And, the device (oneplus A6013) reboot with TWRP :slight_smile:
