  1. One of the first things I tried was a video call on facebook messenger. The other side reported that the camera quality they saw looked like something from the 2000s compared with my previous phone (Note 9). I didn't expect this given that both of them have 8MP front cameras. Anyone know of this?
  2. Yes I copied the boot.img from the factory restore thread to my SD card, then did the "Patch file" install from Magisk Manager. It created magisk_patched.img. I copied that back to the pc, and ran "fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img". There was no need for TWRP to be installed. It is a shame because I would have liked an unrooted and rooted stock backup for easy restore.
  3. I went ahead and posted there. @netman Now I wonder if it's possible to inject the content of Magisk's zip file into the factory data that gets flashed then?
  4. I believe this to be one of the causes for the following behaviour that I'm encountering while trying to simply flash TWRP without continuing the Sailfish OS install: Can't mount /data or /system or /data/system Can't seem to check off the "Mount as read-only" check box After flashing it Android asks me for a password which is NOT my password, and I cannot boot boot into Android at all Doing a "Wipe Data" results in an endless boot Doing a "Factory Reset" fails with multiple errors I encountered this while attempting to get Magisk installed, more on my thread:
  5. TWRP doesn't ask to mount them rewrite. When I tried to turn off the "mount as read only" check box it does not uncheck. The most important thing is that TWRP cannot mount the partitions anyway. It can't mount /data or /system, and gives errors trying.
  6. Just tried that, same issue. The moment I flashed TWRP I'm asked for the password again.
  7. So I'm essentially stuck now. I reflashed everything to factory (the long list of commands), then I did the first boot. I didn't complete setup. I rebooted to check it did a clean boot and got the initial setup again. Next, I flashed TWRP and rebooted. It immediately asked me for a password to continue. "To start Android, enter your password". What? I did some looking around and other people got this after flashing TWRP and listed some default passwords. "password" and "default_password", neither worked. Someone said to run the command "fastboot format userdata" which I did, and it results with an endless boot again. There is a problem with TWRP and when I'm inside it I can't do things like mount /data or /data/system, so I can't get inside there to try and remove the password files. So I believe the bug is with TWRP right now. Any suggestions?
  8. If that happens again I will try it, otherwise I can't because it stopped booting now. I will post with what happens next.
  9. So i gave this a try, and it doesn't seem to work. Here's what happened. I flashed TWRP, this worked fine I then flashed Magisk zip file which worked too Upon booting up I am asked for my pin, but my pin is WRONG every time. I know I am putting the right one, it worked when I turned it on! I go back to TWRP and think ok I will do a factory reset, this fails, and I think it wiped the OS too because I'm stuck on an endless boot I am going to follow the post for returning to factory, then I will do something different: I won't set any pin or fingerprint and see what happens.
  10. Thanks! That is really good info, maybe I will attempt it and see if this is something I would do myself without a dedicated guide.
  11. The positive: - Build quality is good - Screen mechanism is good and solid, does not move when opened or closed - The device is a very reasonable weight, and not much thicker than my note 9 - I was initially worried that the sound quality would be bad however it's really good enough The negative (just nitpicking): - Camera seems to lag at night time, compared to my note 9 which doesn't. During the day however it seems fine - The power button is very sensitive, and I've pressed it a few times by accident just picking the device up or holding it portrait - The screen takes a bit of getting used to flipping open, since one side needs to be lifted up to trigger the mechanism I haven't used it much because I am waiting for Lineage OS before I transfer and switch devices.
  12. UPDATE: Link to my comment with working root access for anyone who's looking for a quick answer: I got my device yesterday delivered by UPS. I'm very happy with it, the only thing I don't know how to do is get root access. Has someone got root access working in the stock software?
