I am already out of disk space for “SailfishOS and other data” so I am trying to follow instructions to expand the partition so that I can install the update (and also have a working handset, it’s gotten very buggy since I’m up against the limit). But I can’t even get started as I cannot boot the recovery image on my Xperia 10ii!
I press Volume Up while plugging it in, using the right data cable, wait til the light is blue, double check using “fastboot devices” that the phone shows up, navigate to the right directory, then:
fastboot boot hybris-recovery.img
OKAY [ 0.431s]
FAILED (remote: unknown command)
finished. total time: 0.431s
The phone is plugged in to a Linux machine running Mint - the very same one I used to flash over Sailfish last weekend. Fastboot is up to date I believe (version 1:8.1.0+r23-5~18.04). I re-downloaded the SailfishOS files just in case so I am using the right hybris-recovery.img
I can reboot the phone using “fastboot reboot” so a few other commands work. I can flash over hybris-recovery.img but not boot from it for some reason.
It is already unlocked. I have developer mode enabled and logged in as “devel-su” before powering off and plugging in to try to access recovery (just in case).
Any ideas? XDA forum is full of people with other phones having trouble just executing OEM unlock but I haven’t found anything else out there that would help.
Thanks for any assistance … I don’t know why I am having so much trouble with this particular install … this is my 4th Sailfish device…
