Okay, I got it. I used the payload_dumper and flashed it manually.I am trying to install this ROM (Plus version) but it fails every time when I try to sideload the zip file. I followed the instruction from the wiki (https://wiki.pixelexperience.org/devices/kebab/install/).
The device shows the following error: Error applying update: 7 (ErrorCode::kInstallDeviceOpenError
What am I doing wrong? I am coming from stock (EU), unlocked the bootloader, flashed the recovery, sideloaded the copy-partitions.zip, rebooted to recovery, Factory reset the device and tried to sideload the rom.
Do all the cameras work on this rom work?
Also, if any kind soul can guide me how do I flash this rom... That would be great Im on clean stock locked OOS
Im Unable to flash the rom via adb sideload... what do I do? Is there any recoery that I can use perhaps?
errors? some more info would be helpful. Are you using PE's recovery image? and following the page?
Do you have adb drivers installed? And can you see the device in fastboot?
So knowing the steps/commands and the outcome on the screen are all helpful to troubleshoot.yes all of that is done... its just that adb sideloading the rom doesnt work... which is the case with a lot of the people here... so just wondering how to get it installed
So knowing the steps/commands and the outcome on the screen are all helpful to troubleshoot.
But just saying it doesn't work is not going to do much for anyone to assist in getting it working.
Not trying to be a jerk just need more help cause while you say it doesn't work for some, it works for more then it doesn't. and the cause of those that can't get it is normally a step was missed.
Somewhere available on pg 12:
if sideload is not working - universal flashing instruction for all rom (some customs have payload and other have will have image extracted already - idea is to find all image files)
Download Platform tools instead of minimal adb to resize and break package size.
Download payload dumper to extract payload.bin - paste all the image extracts in platform tools
- adb reboot bootloader
- fastboot -w
- fastboot flash recovery recovery.img or PE recovery
- fastboot reboot fastboot
- fastboot flash boot boot.img (if planning to root use this in Magisk and reflash patched boot in BL)
- fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
- fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
- fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
- fastboot flash system system.img
- fastboot flash system_ext system_ext.img
- fastboot flash product product.img
- fastboot reboot
Is the file version correct for the device you downloaded?I followed instructions on the website and got
Error applying update: 7 (ErrorCode::kInstallDeviceOpenError)
when installing the room via sideload
OnePlus 8T from OOS 22.214.171.124.KB05AA
Post root - i know two method see if it works -What about rooted?
Someone tell me if I'm correct. I'm getting a 8T tomorrow and want to make sure these are the right steps.
So if i want root, I'd need to flash the rom and boot.img like normal, then boot into android, install the magisk app, copy the boot.img to the phone, use the app the patch the boot.img, connect the phone to pc, copy over the patched boot.img then flash it?
Jeez, I miss the old days of just being able to flash the root zip after flashing rom.
adb reboot bootloader fastboot boot recovery.img
adb sideload <ROM>.zip
adb sideload <MagiskFileName>.zip
fastboot reboot recovery
adb reboot bootloader fastboot -w fastboot flash recovery recovery.img fastboot reboot fastboot fastboot flash boot boot.img fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta vbmeta.img fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img fastboot flash system system.img fastboot flash system_ext system_ext.img fastboot flash product product.img fastboot flash odm odm.img fastboot flash vendor vendor.img fastboot reboot
