I attempted to install the 3/29 dated LOS17.1 on my Sofiar G8 Power, made it all the way through the instructions successfully, but my phone just boots into fastboot now... No error messages, all shows a status of OKAY on all flashes, but it won't actually boot. Tried:As I noted It's a test build I have never tested it and it might not work. LOS17.1 I build worked when I build it on first try, 18.1 looks not.
I'd like to have more confirmation and later maybe next build will work or if someone can give me a hand I'd love to have LOS18.1 on my Sofiar device.
Please google fastbootd or search this thread. Every other person fails to enter fastbootd
-booting to fastbootd thru TWRP
-booting to fastbootd without TWRP
-system before product
-product before system
(flashing back to stock between each attempt)
Please take the text below with a grain of salt, it is from past me before the above 17.1 adventure, but it shows a difference in install success of the two builds:
Okay I found fastbootd, apparently I had replaced it with TWRP. Phone flashed back to stock, fastbootd restored. I followed the steps of post #53 in this thread, but got stuck in fastbootd at the same place as before:
C:\Users\Meeee\Downloads\platform-tools_r31.0.2-windows\platform-tools>fastboot flash system lineageSo\system.img
Invalid sparse file format at header magic
Resizing 'system_a' FAILED (remote: 'Not enough space to resize partition')
fastboot: error: Command failed
New error message though... the new system.img may be too big? It is about 1.8GB vs the old one's 1.0GB... can it be split?
