Hoping somebody can help me out here as I appear to have the same issue as this thread.
I’ve just bought a Zenfone 8 specifically to install e/os as it’s been my daily driver on a now broken Samsung S9.
I followed the install page instructions and completed the install vendor_boot.img step.
Now I can’t get out of “fastboot” or even poweroff. It just loops all the time so assume i will have to wait for a flat battery before it will even turn off?
I completed the next step and installed the recommended recovery via Fastboot but this made no difference.
I don’t know what to do now if as suggested the Vendor_boot image is not suitable.
I can still see my phone from terminal using “fastboot -l devices” so can I do something like install a different vendor_boot image so that I can get back to stock or maybe try Lineageos?
I don’t have a copy of the original vendor_boot image to roll back.
I’ve only got very basic tech skill so am lost at this point and any help much appreciated?
