I even uploaded a logcat and couldn't figure it out...Ok I've been trying to update my phone it says it downloaded and then installing but it never does ****. I've locked my bootloader but up and nothing I went from b to a and back again. I'm still on 8.1 and dec. Security. Does any one have 9 pie file / files so I can have a decent running phone. If you do I would need the process of installing it. If no one does could you point me in the right direction thank you
Ok I downloaded the file from megathresd pg. 11 and just what happened the last time I had a file with no extension system? Would I change it to system.img and I'm still looking for 9 pie for global ver. The phone needs something like security and better rom
What I don't understand is that I have never modified my phone except I unlocked the bootloader period.The files do not need extension to flash them.
Edit: even if you flash android p directly (i doubt it will work), OTA will never work. You need to restore full stock 8.1 for it to work.
Edit2: even if you restored system and boot partitions, othet partitions might need to be restored, like modem, bluetooth, dtbo, vbmeta, vendor and others. From personal experience.
Bottom line is there anyway I can get 9 pie I'm on 8.1 and it really sucks. I'd hate to have to sell this phone and buy something else cause I really like this phone
You can try to fastboot boot recovery.img
If it works, you can backup all partitions from there manually using adb (adb pull /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/system_a system_a.img) for all partitions.
You can use adb shell and then ls /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/ to list all partitions. Data does not need to be backed up.
If booting the recovery doesn't work, you can change slot and flash recovery to it. That way, the old slot would have recovery instead of boot image. Then you can do the procedure above to backup.
