edit: please read my third comment
After rebooting my phone (XA2 Plus) it stays stuck at the spinner after the “Enter security code” screen. This is the screen with the black background for decrypting the home directory.
I am entering the correct code. I’ve checked this by entering an incorrect one, at which point I just get the message “Incorrect security code” and I’ve also checked it by booting from the recovery image at which point one also needs to enter the code.
I do not want to do a factory reset yet. First I want to figure out what is wrong and if it can be fixed.
At the moment I could use some help with Luks because I’m unsuccessful with mounting
/dev/mapper/sailfish-home. I have been trying to do this from the recovery shell using Luks guides like these: https://alvinabad.wordpress.com/2012/09/22/how-to-recover-a-luks-encrypted-disk/ (and several others). Point is that
/dev/mapper/sailfish-home already shows as active with
lvm lvdisplay but when I try to
mount /dev/mapper/sailfish-home /mnt I get an
invalid argument error. (Same for trying to mount
/dev/sailfish/home or when trying different mount points.)
Some things I did to my phone before this incident:
- turn off wake delay
install dependencies for Qarma (except
x11extras), compile it and play with it
croniefrom Openrepos (probably more)
- install cron job for
What I also noticed was issues with GPS. It rebooted twice while running Hello Maps and Pure Maps. After that I had GPSInfo running and even after that was closed the location icon in the status bar kept blinking. I also could not retrieve e-mail anymore and then I did the last reboot.
SW_binaries_for_Xperia_Android_188.8.131.52_r1_v16_nile.zip due to the WLAN issues mentioned in the install guide: https://jolla.com/sailfishx-linux-instructions-xa2/ (I flashed it two days ago.)
But for now I’d like
to be able to mount any hints to diagnose what’s going wrong.
