That's true but if you take a look at the screenshot he shared, it printed Device is system as root. Doesn't that indicate that the mounting is done?
I guess logs can only tell. I'd be happy to see the logs too.
And I didn't mean to say that it's recovery's fault. Just mentioned the behaviour.
A question: why not make sure that system is mounted and read the android version info from /system/build.prop only?
Every Rom has it. And if you fail to find it (most likely indicating that gapps is being flashed before Rom), you shouldn't be Flashing it anyway.
Actually, no, right now it's missing an error check, so that's why it continued to install and wrongly reported OS version error.... it printed Device is system as root. Doesn't that indicate that the mounting is done?
True.And I didn't mean to say that it's recovery's fault. Just mentioned the behaviour
Yup. when I installed it I got the `unable to mount /system_root` error, so that was the indicator.I guess logs can only tell. I'd be happy to see the logs too.
It's a legacy issue, I have to support compatibility with all Android versions starting from 4.4.A question: why not make sure that system is mounted and read the android version info from /system/build.prop only?
It's not the recovery's fault. That means that for some reason script was unable to mount /system, so the only prop it found was the recovery's one.
@djsubterrain would be great if you could provide me recovery log with that error.
For the time being gonna check this myself.
EDIT: I've identified the issue, it's due to the ROM mounting /system_root. Gonna have to think how to overcome that.
Did you flashed oos 10 twice before and formated data?I was really looking forward to testing this rom out but no matter how many times I follow the steps to a T, it always messes up my phone and I have to use the msm tool to recover from it. I upgrade to oos 10 after msm, then unlock and start the process from step 1. It never boots after the I install PA package, whether I install magisk and dm no verity with it or not. How do I get passed this problem? All I get to is bootloader and it stops.
How long does the first boot usually take? I've waited about 10 minutes and its still just spinning with the google looking icons.
Tried again, logs attached as requested.
I tried those Nik gapps, they seemed to install but showed a similar error and when I got into the rom there were no Google Apps available. Gonna try installing open_gapps again after install.
OK, Found out, if I install the rom, TWRP and magisk, then boot into the rom, reboot back into TWRP, wipe data and then install all again, the open_gapps doesn't grumble about the platform and installs properly. Setting up now.
