Nothing Phone 1
I have restored the vendor boot.img and totaly unrooted the entire phone, but update to 1.5.1 fails every time with error 20. I have tried Pho3nX guide from top of the page but nothing helps.

It does not matter if I try it with keypad combo or adb sideload.

From my point of view the next option should be flashing the super.img from here:


But so far as I know that needs the fastboot unlock critical command and someone told us thats not a safe command.

It would be great if anyone have better idea.

Hello again,
i need some wise words on that :
If i understood correctly, since 1.5.1, Global and EEA are merged.

Therefore, can I flash his (Full Fastboot Rom) full 1.5.1 Global rom on my EEA 1.1.7hotfix device ?
And if I can, what would be the process ? (I have never flashed from fastboot)

Please excuse my newbiness, I'm trying to understand but it's so complex and interesting x)

I bought my NP1 one month ago with EEA 1.0.2 (original state) . By OTA I immediately received 1.1.7 update and used it for a month . Few days ago I've done a local update with 1.1.7 Hotfix and then after also through local update A13/ 1.5 (Open Beta) . Now I'm on 1.5.1 (Open Beta 2 ) . That are all the steps I've done . All worked fine , no problem instead of some insignifiant little bugs which I hope they will solve them in the future .

So since 1.1.7 , I flashed all updates found here only by local updates , all worked flawless .

That's where my problem is, I can't sideload any update because of some problem I don't understand and nobody answered earlier, so I search another way to do it x)
Thanks for your answer, I'm happy it worked for you !

Yeah doesnt work for me either. Sideload or local upgrade gives me error. Im on EEA 1.1.7 with hotfix. And tried the 1.5 EEA first and it didnt work. Neither does 1.5.1 work. What am i doing wrong? Do i need to flash anything else first? Boot or Vendor boot?

Reading through this thread (and other threads in this forum), I see a lot of users facing issues updating their devices, especially with root. Even I have faced issues with updating and I try different methods to fix it, but there is still no single method that works 100% of the time. Sometimes local update method works, sometimes sideloading with ADB, etc.

It would be great if you could create a guide for updating their devices with root, possibly with all the different methods and troubleshooting methods. I do not mean unlocking or rooting, but updating NP1 by keeping root access. Sure, there are a lot of individual posts on this topic spread across this forum, as threads and as comments in threads like these, but I think it would be better to have it in one of the reserved sections in the original guide thread.

Thank you and kudos for the great job you do here. :)

Update:

With fastboot unlock critical command and full restore of 1.5.1 fastboot img everything works.

unfortunatly, that needs a factory reset and i have to copy the entire sd card again. So, the NP1 is my last phone without external sd card.

Hey, that's cool for you ! I'm trying to fix this too, so i'd like to ask you a few questions about your case X)

Could you provide the origin of your phone (ie EEA or Global ?)

And if I understood well, you flashed the entire rom, how did you do that ? Could you provide some information about your process ?

Thanks for reading x)

Why is it so damn difficult to restore EEA NP to stock from Custom Rom? It is just impossible for me.
I guess it depends, it seems like you could flash Global 1.5.1 without problem since Global and EEA are merged, and the guy just above managed it apparently.

(Just a side note, don't take my word on that, I'm sharing what I think I learned, but some people here are WAY more qualified than me, my only experience is flashing a custom rom on my raphael device lol)

Hi,

I have the EEA model, but thats no problem, both software variants are merged with 1.5.1.

So, if you would like to go this way, you need an unlocked bootloader with fastboot unlock critical as described here under step 1 point 12:

But that makes a factory restore, so you should have a backup of your data. also if you already had an open bootloader, with unlock critical the procedure starts again.

Now you have the prerequisites done. So, you can download the fastboot rom for the NP1 from Github from here:

That's a .zip package and in there are 2 bat files (for both slots). double-click starts the flash. if you need root flash the boot.img from the magisk folder.

That's it!

Thanks for this guide ! It's clear and easy to follow x)

I'll do that tomorrow afternoon and I'll keep you updated in case of any problem. I do have an unlocked bootloader but not critical, so I'll do that.

You should make your post sticky or post it into this thread because it lacks explanations there x)
Oh and side note, but apparently there's no need to unlock_critical, the uploader of these fastboot rom said it in its repo (and i'll check that right now)

    Další aktualizace.... Hotfix
    Informace jsou z Facebooku!
    Ps: Ještě jsem neobdržel aktualizaci 1.5.3! Česká republika EU
    336693406_196004813129753_965419137943256010_n.jpg
    English please but thanks for the heads up

    1.5.3 HOTFIX just released
    I COULD NOT update and keep root. I did magisk ota installation but at reboot i was bootlooping.

    So i did the update as stock with unlocked bootloader and at reboot i held vol down to boot into bootloader, booted NOT FLASHED, BOOTED the old 153 (not hotfix) magisk patched boot and did direct installation

    Everything seems to be working fine, i'll let you know if i encounter any freeze.

    I don't have a Nothing phone but I have some suggestions:
    Did anyone try using latest bleeding-edge build of Magisk from: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/actions ?
    If it still has issues I suggest opening an issue on the repo to notify topjohnwu.
    Downloading artifacts and installing the apk should be the right way to go, right? Because after installing apks from actions magisk manager app crashes.

    In the afternoon i'll also try to logcat the device

    EDIT: Magisk implements a signature check to block malicious clones, to move from official to action you should first install the debug apk found on magisk's main page, do direct install and then install the actions apks...

    15:26, im trying
    Force ramdisk format to lz4_legacy for v4 #2878
    Action, i'll let you know if i get any crash or what

    UPDATE
    15:42 the device crashed with the latest action build
    2
    Another update.... Hotfix

    Information is from Facebook!

    Ps: I haven't received the 1.5.3 update yet! Czech Republic EU

    Thank you for trying out the latest build. Can you open an issue on the repo reporting this crash problem?

    Edit: someone already did so https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/issues/6780
    No problem, i really just want a stable phone experience.

    Let's wait for updates and hope for the best.

    EDIT:
    I've updated the first and second posts, please feel free to let me know if i've made any spelling mistake.

    LATEST NEWS
    Both 1.5.3 and 1.5.3.hotfix versions of NOTHING OS are currently unstable if the device is rooted and booting a magisk patched boot img.
    An issue has been opened on magisk github.
    For now if you want root and a stable device stick to 1.5.2, do not update until the cause of freezes is found.

    HEADS UP WHILE UPDATING TO A13
    STABLE ROAD TO NOS 1.5.2
    Prerequisites:
    Global & EEA device with NOS 1.1.8
    The OTA Update file from 1.1.8 to 1.5.2, the link is down below: Global and EEA are not unified.

    Global users will have no problem performing the update with the necessary precautions.
    An EEA user on 1.1.7 no hotfix can update to 1.1.8 no problem.
    EEA users which have 1.1.7.hotfix installed won't be able to update to 1.1.8 thus blocking the stable update procedure.
    They will need to follow the beta firmware updates road.

    BETA ROAD TO NOS 1.5.2
    Prerequisites:
    Global device with NOS 1.1.7
    OR
    EEA device with NOS 1.1.7.hotfix
    The OTA Update file from 1.1.7(/hotfix) to 1.5.0, the link is down below.

    Then from 1.5.0 to 1.5.2 perform all the needed beta updates

    What are the regional variants of Nothing OS ?

    Nothing offers two distinct regional variants of Nothing OS.
    • Intended for European countries is the "EEA" version, as it meets the requirements of the European Privacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
    • The other version, the so-called "Global Version" is intended for Asian and Australian devices.
    You can easily control the regional setting of your Phone(1) by going to your Shell terminal or Android emulator (e.g. Fuss) and executing the following command if on Nothing OS >= 1.5:
    Code:
    getprop ro.product.name

    If Nothing OS <1.5
    Code:
    getprop ro.product.system.name
    • These commands will return "SpacewarEEA" if the device is delivered with the European firmware.
    • For International models, the result should be "Spacewar" only.

    - FILES FOR NOTHING OS - (stock-boot, etc. )

    /!\ IT'S HIGHLY RECOMMANDED /!\
    to always using fastboot "boot" command installation
    instead directly "flash" a patched boot.img file to avoid any risk of brick


    Code:
    .\fastboot boot Magisk_Patched_XXX.img

    By the way if Magisk patched boot file is good, device will boot temporary with root and install Magisk, you must simply install/apply root on the boot definitively :
    - Open Magisk > Install > Install Directly (Recommanded) > Reboot... Voila !


    If the Magisk patched boot file don't boot, just do a hard reboot/shutdown by pressing ON/OFF button +5 seconds, device reboot directly with your stock boot without problems.

    @Phon3nX
    Reading through this thread (and other threads in this forum), I see a lot of users facing issues updating their devices, especially with root. Even I have faced issues with updating and I try different methods to fix it, but there is still no single method that works 100% of the time. Sometimes local update method works, sometimes sideloading with ADB, etc.

    It would be great if you could create a guide for updating their devices with root, possibly with all the different methods and troubleshooting methods. I do not mean unlocking or rooting, but updating NP1 by keeping root access. Sure, there are a lot of individual posts on this topic spread across this forum, as threads and as comments in threads like these, but I think it would be better to have it in one of the reserved sections in the original guide thread.

    Thank you and kudos for the great job you do here. :)

    KERNEL FOR PHONE(1) - 17-07-2022

    If you're a developer looking to create something around the Phone(1), here's something to get you started with the release of the Kernel and device tree.

    Thanks for the tip! This did the trick, and I'm now happily re-rooted on 1.1.3 :) I was not even aware of the local system update wizard...

    Yes :
    1/ Flash Full ROM Update
    2/ Reboot normally (no risk, no EDL/Brick possibility)
    3/ Boot normally System/OS, no root
    4/ Run Magisk > Patch new boot 1.1.3 (you can know extract/found boot.img) on this thread
    5/ Take the Patched Magisk Boot
    6/ Boot on Bootloader mode (Fastboot) > Flash Magisk Boot
    I advise to always flash magisk on "safe" mode, i mean with the "boot command (not flash boot command):

    Code:
    .\fastboot boot magisk_patched-2XXXX_XXXXX.img

    7/ Device will boot on System/OS with Magisk/Root granted just this time, and if not boot, just restart, old boot is always installed, more safe.
    If device boot normally with the patched Boot, just go on magisk > install > install directly (recommanded) > apply
    and reboot, voila !
