If I remember correctly, the last system update to this device was via OTA, nice and easy, phone now on e-0.9-o-20200430052057.
The first install of e was very troublesome and I couldn’t have managed it without the Lineage and Sailfish installation instructions. Even though it worked in the end I couldn’t reproduce the steps I went through and I decided that I wouldn’t like to have to try to do the same again!
Yesterday another system update presented itself as a download (e-0.9-o-2020051454222) and I followed the prompts to install it but it failed to reboot properly, ending up with a black screen just after the ‘unlocked bootloader’ splashscreen. I tried to put it into fastboot mode but it wouldn’t work until I forced the power off with vol up/power and wait for three vibrations.
After flashing TWRP again I could reboot on Slot B to the 20200430 version, so that was ok…but I’m left wondering what the problem was with the update?
Also, what’s the reason for the different methods of subsequent system updates?
Any help with this would be much appreciated.
