[S][CORAL] [Mayl] Descendant 12.1

Search This thread
I am back on descendant for a bit to help others (test a few things I was asked about privately), but I just noticed there is a June update (but it still shows MAy in OP) so you might not know. My ojnly point is if you didnt update (or see it), theres a 6/10 update (Descendant_coral-12.1-20220610) available. I am about to test this new ROM update (in depth), but so far, I kinda like this ROM a lot! My only other DD is LOS, but I kinda like these features so I might remain for a while.

    Adding on to the download thing...

    The speeds aren't the best, but I'd recommend downloading the boot IMG first maybe since it's a smaller file, then download the rom.

    Through my experience, I've noticed that the boot.img never downloads if the rom is being downloaded simultaneously. One has to be downloaded fully before downloading the other to avoid errors.

    Think I found the culprit. Sev settings, allow automatic OTA /install on restart . Fml
    Dev options always have that by default, BUT you can't get an update without seeing it in the background (before you reboot). So I'm not convinced yet that's what happened.

    Have you rebooted to BL, switched to the other slot and reboot? Chances are that's your only issue and assuming you didn't touch /data, means it would return back to normal. I truly suspect you're only running the STOCK firmware on the opposite slot, but you can manually change back to the other slot. You should REALLY REALLY REALLY check and test that NOW before you lose anything.

    Plus, if that's NOT the cause, reboot to BL, swap slots back, and undone. You're risking your data and OS if you continue down the path you're on but not checking the simple slot boot order. What you say happened REALLY sounds like nothing more than an update swapping slots but stock is on the other slot so you're booting that stock slot.

    If you need help, IE code/syntax, let me know and I'll walk you through it but it's as easy as can be and won't take more than a minute to do, test, and undo if needed.
