  1. Hm, tech support is very very hard to reach these days. They initially told me to flash etc, so I've told them all the steps I'd done, and there's been radio silence ever since. Wondering if opening a new ticket would help.. 😞 still stuck with a borrowed phone, not cool. Oh well. I'll try to keep my optimism up.
  2. => boot loop. At least I get to actual rom booting, as opposed to only the kernel running in circles with lineageOS. I like the AICP logo, though 😃 it makes one smile.. I'll leave the phone on charger for a while in case it somehow boots, but I won't hold my breath. Thanks all for the help. I am afraid this is not a software issue. I'll wait for the support response.. BTW if they tell me to send it in, is it better to return to stock ROM or does it not matter? EDIT; I'll try one more thing, AICP-r without gapps. Just for fun. EDIT2; no change. The boot loop seems faster,
  3. Finally got to another try. 1; flashed recovery 2; booted into recovery 3; sideloaded aicp 4; reboot to recovery 5; sideloaded gapps 6; reboot now ... about 6 reboots and now it is stuck at the Pro1 logo .. heck no! BTW, no reply from tech support yet.
  4. Thank you Sir. Downloading now, will try flashing later today or tomorrow morning. In the meantime I've created a support ticket but I guess I'll send them the machine and they'll keep it for the better part of next year 😄
  5. I would gladly try that one. Thing is I can't find LOS 18.1 recovery boot.img anywhere. You specifically state that 19.1 won't work; could you perhaps up it to some google drive or whatnot?
  6. IDK, not much of a change, I've tried the FB erase and the boot loop continued -- if I'm not mistaken I've seen some weird logo after several reboots -- something like lineage logo with ,erasing' below that but only for quarter of a second and then rebooting continued as always 😞
  7. There's no wrong logo, it's just that the device reboots again as soon as the ,ROM logo' would show up. I'll try fastboot erase (although after fastboot flash stock rom I'm pretty sure the phone was basically bone stock before my last attempt). FWIW this is like my 40th time of android flashing to various android devices and apart from an old samsung core prime (which had 0 custom roms and 1000s of stock ones) I've never encountered anything like this.. 😞 .. The worst thing it just happened out of the blue, there was no update, no nothing, I haven't even held the phone in my hand. I've just st
  8. well but the point is I never get past the boot sequence :[ I can try installing once more. I do it through fastboot & adb EDIT.. fastboot flashed lineage recovery, adb sideloaded lineage 19.1, mindgapps 12.1 and no, it immediately after first Powered by android logo goes to another reboot. Doesn't even show the lineageOS blue curve logo. F** hell.
  9. Thanks Eske but I can't get into android at all 😞 .. it's just booting (show kernel F powered by android logo), then either LOS animation (blue arc) or (as of now) stock F logo but then between 1 - 15 seconds it shuts down and starts booting again 😞 BTW between 2 am yesterday and 9 am today it ,was' working -- I was asleep but woke up to a normal phone -- and at that time I haven't installed almost nothing, only Chrome, one game (forge of empires) and SMS backup application. It did end up in a boot loop during that time but I was able to ,break' the loop by reinstalling gapps.. today I wa
  10. Alas, hello again 🙂 I've been using my pro1 (non-x) for some years now. Basically just on LineageOS, usually the latest version. Apart from the usual ,Connected, not charging' and some trouble with location in maps in some applications things were going quite fine. But yesterday all of a sudden the device restarted itself and kept doing so indefinitely. I am able to get into recovery, bootloader, no problem. The lineageos recovery seems not to offer any of the usual ,empty cache' options apart from factory reset, so.. after a while of trying various ways how to break this loop I bi
  11. Gotta step up to them. Yes, they are slow but they always have been very honest with me; the only ,problem' was they once sent me a replacement phone which was locked up (by google something) and could not be used at all. Helped by a forum member. But hey, it worked after that. Then I bought a second back cover (because I'm stupid and broke off the fingerprint ribbon cable) and waited for the delivery for eternity. Yes, I tried to contact them several times, they even wanted me to cancel that order and send me the money back but I did not want that. Now all of the sudden they got back to
  12. Hi, yeah, I guess you'd be a great book writer :-) from the sound of it this won't help ya (my phone was rattling in the open position, not closed) but anyway. You gotta open the phone, turn it upside down, you'll see 5 black circles in a distinct 'W' pattern on the back of it; carefully remove them with a razor blade or something, there are screws under it. Unscrew, carefully pop out the display from the back frame with a plastic prying tool. Make sure not to break the flex cable, which needs to be disconnected. After the display itself is gone, you'll see where the hinges are; and
  13. Just FWIW; after brief talk with support (wanted to claim warranty) they made me tighten the *inner* screws (didn't know about those - they act as the hinge axis). Now the rattling is back to something I agreed to call okay. I tried to tighten the bottom screw too (the one holding the support arm) to no luck. Basically the screw is too thin or the hinge is too wide. Now I see a way out though; next time I will take the thing apart I'll try to get hold of some PTFE sticky tape, they come in different thicknesses and just stick it around the screw; hopefully that will keep the thing in good
  14. To me all works fine except - the screen previews when going through task list is wrong when in landscape; it's just a cut of the tasks' portrait display. this worked fine in17.1 - battery seems to drain about 50% quicker (this is my third day of 18.1)
  15. I would be more than glad to buy them off you if you make something that would help.
