  1. Indeed, for edl it might be worth to try a usb 2.0 connection. This can be done by using an old cheap usb 2.0 hub if your computers do not offer any @thilo `fastboot fetch` is just not available, sadly. Regarding your backup attempts using adb, its necessary to root android using magisk to be permitted to access those partitions. Its an easy process documented here officially: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sBS-Taw-3MXrG4lETA6dfuwda8K-9uVlzLhGk46ctzg/edit Or in short, - install magisk from the official source https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk - grab the boot.img fitting to yo
  2. @CraigActually, i never bothered to check without root rights. Agreed, the official EDL.py instructions on Bkerlers git do not mention sudo or root. I only now see. But the EDL instructions i followed (the ones you qouted) showed them executed by root, with leading #. So i just did that as of yet while not feeling adventurous and trying differently. Did you try? Does it work?
  3. @maridavAre your sure to not mix up Pro¹ and Pro¹-X intructions and even images? Those are two completely different devices due to different SoC and the Firmware is not interchangeable. For the Pro¹, the unlock command is `fastboot oem unlock` for example. Also, there is no LineageOS for Pro¹-X yet. so i figure you tried to flash the Pro¹ LOS files? LineageOS for Pro¹-X has just now been booted up first time by a dev as reported on Telegram.
  4. @EskeRahn @eorg The recovery is the dead droid. To activate its menu, press the power button and the volume up button. Still, the limitation is that ADB is not fully available in recovery. We can only sideload patches. In the beta group its used to manual sideload local updates from "OTA" packages that are contained in the releases. We even got an alternate fastbootd that can write logical partitions. You can reach that by either `fastboot reboot fastboot` or from the recovery menu item fastboot. @eorg Don't let yourself confuse too much from the evolving threads here. Most things have be
  5. @zaptastici used that second one you linked. But since the method is called Key Attestation, i guess all of those tester apps should do quite the same. You can observe using those, that key attestation is a feature that does not depend on Safetynet/Play Api integrity. But the other way around. Using this Play API integrity checker, you can observe that unlocking the bootloader breaks "Device integrity". Rooting the device breaks "Basic integrity" and missing keys break "Strong integrity". But the pure Key Attestation checker apps you linked above, are happy as soon as they see keys. Not
  6. Updated the first post with warnings regarding the restore of backups. Sadly, i could not identify a pattern in which case restoring a backup works reliably. Even after days of trying and countless reflashes/lock/unlock BL... I managed to put a device in the perilous state where a restored backup with contained keys does not make those usable in Android. And was not able to recover from that state by any means. I documented the way i reached that. But the unsettling thing is, i did nothing different than during the successful restores. Until someone else with deeper knowledge solves t
  7. There is an official Pro¹-X rooting guide using the Magisk boot.img patch method here.
  8. @fxnoma Like Kabouik mentioned, Android sync apps will not work since the SailfishOS android layers do not support to relay bluetooth to the system. On the native sync client side we have Adams Amazfish, originally written to support Amazfit products. But adam maded it nicely modular and now the PineTime and bangle.js are supported as well. https://github.com/piggz/harbour-amazfish Then there is rockpool, providing support for all pebbles. I used that on the Pro¹ for some time. You might have heard of AsteroidOS, a full linux replacement to WearOS on 19 supported watches. The pitty, tho
  9. @marmistrzAdmitted, i am not after the google free experience on this device. I have my privacy sensitive things on the Pro¹-X with SailfishOS. But since the gps reception is miserable on sfos, i thought i'd prepare the Pro¹ as a secondary Navigation and Messenger machine. Thanks for the discussion!
  10. Now activated the google location service that was offered in settings -> location -> location services. And deleted the AGPS cache using gpstest from F-Droid. Lets see what that does.
  11. Ah, ok, that sounds VERY familiar to the situation on SailfishOS. The problem on SailfishOS lies in the AGPS support. Mozilla at some point 3 years ago changed the license model for its MLS. Which ment that SailfishOS users lost celltower based location assitance via Mozilla Location Services. A work around attempt on SialfishOS that never really worked was to manually feed the offline availabe MLS files. But since we are on Android, maybe there is a way to enable the google location service or whatever makes stock android get gps fix instantly?
  12. Thank you @Kaali, much appreciated! I now successfully applied the "sideload magisk.apk renamed as zip" method. I was put off by following the Pro¹-X stock rooting procedure.
  13. @marmistrzI don't think it is necessary even. I was just not expecting that the first fix would take 30 minutes. I tried multiple times around 15 and 20 minutes, then starting to look for a possible solution -> gps.conf. But as soon i got a "first time ever fix" after like 30 minutes and then rebooted, after reboot i had instant fix. This behavior now persists, i get a fix within 30 seconds constantly and i think the issue is explained and solved. Thank you!
  14. Hey all! Trying LOS 19.1 as my first LOS ever on Pro¹. Install went fine including MindTheGapps-12.1.0-arm64-20220605_112439. Flashed to stock android beforehand to start from a clean state. Two problems i am facing: 1.[SOLVED, after some reboots i suddenly got fix without updating gps.conf] I read "GPS fix taking a long time" is due to /vendor/etc/gps.conf. I downloaded a gps.conf that is fitting for my region and should speed up sat-fix. But pushing the file using adb root and adb push gps.conf /vendor/etc/ results in "read only device". I figure adb root is not enough and i
  15. As a fellow linux user, i advise to use the edl.py method explained here. Testers are using this method since month intensly. The windows QFIL instructions are a recent thing to make full reflash possible for windows users. Never tried the QFIL method myself. Always used edl.py as of yet and had no problems. But mind to make backups before flashing anything.
