Pandora will not start. The app crashes before the login screen can be reached. Spotify does fully work however. Snapchat, Facebook, and Messenger all fully work as well.

I have made a logcat for the Pandora crash: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/...bb5d8edfe7a7c3182c2b9b354c9ffc6/gistfile1.txt

The issue seems to be:

Hello,

Not sure why, but sometimes I have to give storage permissions for Titanium Backup on first launch after a new flash, otherwise it would just FC...

Good luck...

I am sad to report, but giving permissions to Pandora did not fix the issue for me. This is fine, because I use Spotify way more than Pandora anyways and Spotify is working.

I have flashed Benzo a while back but now I am trying to flash back the Factory image.

I cannot for the life of me to get the phone to be recognized by the computer in any OS in any modes

Bootloader mode or regular. The phone in regular mode just beeps and doesn't show any way that is connected
When going in the settings the USB mode is greyed out and cannot chose anything, In developer settings I can chose file transfer or whatever but it doesn't make a difference.
Tried different cables, different USB ports.
The recovery boots into a generic Android recovery and can't do much.
In bootloader mode it just gives me "waiting for the device" at the command prompt

Is there any way to kick it out of this state or flash a different image?

I have flashed the ROM coming from the stock image and I did not mess round with anything

Do you have the Google USB driver installed?

I do but it doesn't make a difference on either Win or Linux. Talking about normal MTP mode(that doesn't seem to be working) or Bootloader mode
In Windows it doesn't even see it as a generic device so would install the driver. Like physically is not detected.
It charges though?! so USB must be doing something.
I believe it's a setting or somehow the ROM was corrupted when I flashed and ended up like that but don't know how can I restore since I cannot communicate with the phone in any ways


I have attached the 2 USB screens from the phone( Preferences and Developer options) so can understand better

Thank you

Hi,

Tried this? Maybe it will help you?! Only Windows 10 by the way: https://forum.xda-developers.com/pixel-xl/how-to/guide-fix-mtp-driver-windows-10-t3570625

Good luck...

Did u try a different cable or port. I've honestly had one that I had to take it out the phone and flip it upside down n reinsert.

Thanks everyone for pitching in.

I tried three cables so far with no luck. And all the USB ports on all my computers and a friend's :)
The ADB driver was installed and didn't make a difference.

What worries me is that when it boots up normally it doesn't recognize the MTP mode nor I can switch it into any other mode. It stays greyed out and when connected, it only beeps and starts charging.
In bootloader mode it looks like it cannot be recognized by any computer in any ways.
Any fastboot command stalls at "waiting for device" and "fastboot devices" shows nothing being connected

Otherwise it works :) I can set it up and I actually use it daily. Make/receive calls , data works etc. I cannot copy anything from/to the phone.
I know I could do Airdroid, KDEConnect or any other program to transfer files but I cannot push or flash any image or ROM on it
Somehow the recovery boots into the generic Android one and not the TWRP like I thought it would do..

Is there maybe any other trick or mode that I can force it to boot in?

This thread is for benzoROM. Flashing benzoROM is not what caused this issue. I can assure you that. Please post in the appropriate forum thread for your issue.

You may be right and I can assure you I didn't mean to hog the thread with my problem. I thought it would be a bug with the ROM and someone could have a solution
Not to chose the wrong category, what forum do you think would be more appropriate ?

Thank you.

Benzo Rom 9.0 20190306-0544 (marlin)
Changes:
-Updated source to android-9.0.0_r34 (March Patches)
-Updated kernel (3.18.137-rc1)
-Added FontService for custom fonts (Settings->Display->Font)
-Added option to show AOD on charge only
-Improved Ambient Music information
-Rebased all repos to remove unneeded commits
-More little fixes and changes

I've updated my TheFonts package to work with the new FontService. It has 113 fonts you can choose from. Just install it and they will show up in the font settings with previews. I haven't tested the new package in Substratum so even though it will show up in there I suggest sticking to changing the fonts in Settings.

Download TheFonts 7.1

Download: benzorom-9-20190306-0544

NOTE: There is a problem with Photos on a clean install. See my instructions here to fix until a new build gets released.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    It won't boot OMFG!!!
    Try this if you're having trouble booting.

    I wanna use OpenGAPPS or some obscure Google Apps. How do i?
    You don't. Oreo has more security in /system/priv-app and adding apks that don't come with the zip don't get installed. It may not always be like that, but for now, it is what it is y0

    You have too many gapps in your crappy ROM!
    I try to provide the least amount possible for the setup I like. If you want to know what comes with the ROM browse my repo and look in app and priv-app

    I flashed the ROM, then Google Apps and then vendor. Why does it bootloop? Is that the right order?
    Please read the flashing instructions. Benzo comes with everything you need including the vendor image.

    I'll add more as time goes on and the same questions keep getting asked
    30
    For people having trouble booting custom roms please read:

    Get a copy of the stock boot.img, twrp-3.2.0-0-marlin.img, twrp-pixel-installer-marlin-3.2.0-0.zip and the Benzo Rom zip.

    1. Boot into bootloader
    2. run: fastboot --slot all erase boot
    3. run: fastboot --slot all format system
    4. run: fastboot --slot all format vendor

    Go to where you extracted the stock boot image
    5. run: fastboot --slot a flash boot boot.img
    6. run: fastboot --slot a flash boot twrp-3.2.0-0-marlin.img
    7. run: fastboot --set-active=a
    8. run: fastboot reboot-bootloader
    9. Then select recovery from the bootloader menu
    10. Go to wipe. Move the slider to factory reset which will wipe data, but not internal storage.
    11. Install benzorom-8.1.0-date-version-marlin.zip and twrp-pixel-installer-marlin-3.2.0-0.zip
    12. Reboot

    If you want to install root after boot back into recovery by rebooting and holding volume down after you hit reboot then selecting recovery from bootloader. That will take you into TWRP on slot b which is where you want to install Magisk from. I don't use SuperSU anymore so Magisk is all I know that works.

    You can get the twrp .img and .zip from their site right here.

    Note: If you decide to dirty flash and Settings ends up looking messed up. Delete /system/priv-app/Settings/Settings.apk then reflash. Not sure why it's happening to some people. Just remember to never report problems if you didn't get them on a clean flash. thanks.
