@el_pinguino Do you happen to have USB 2 and USB 3 ports on your computer. Issues have been reported using USB 3 ports, that seem to be avoided when using USB 2 ports.
My Intel NUC is all USB 3.0. However, this is the computer I initially installed UT with. And the same USB cable.
In a terminal adb sees the JingPad serial number and shows recovery mode. I start the installer and it recognizes the JingPad and the asks me what OS I want to install and I choose UT (only choice). Next step is the install options and I choose to not wipe personal date. Bootstrap only. Then it reboots to fast boot and says flashing firmware... until I power off. This time I let it 'flash' and changed my guitar strings. Plenty of time.
I tried to use the Windows box but I've forgotten the password. The only reason I have a Windows box was to unlock the JingPad bootloader.
I'll wait and see what happens with others in the future.
None of them worked. I thought that there could be a memory problem, because I received several error messages regarding this topic, so I decided to reinsall Ubuntu Touch with the above method.
But when I connect my PinePhone via JumpDrive to a running Echer software
and I want to select a target, I can see the 32 GB SD external card with JumpDrive
then I see another JumpDrive USB device with 15 GB with drive letters D – Q (10 differnt drives). When I unplug the usb cable of the PinePhone, the 10 drives dissapear, as well as the external card with JumpDrive.
I am confused about the 10 drives on the PinePhone. They where not there during my fist installation. My goal is to reinstall Ubuntu Touch. But which target drive shall I choose? This is confusing. Or is there a way to reformat the PinePhone to get rid of the 10 drives?
@arubislander What you said is correct so don't feel embarrassed. In fact, I always try first without this command line to test. And if the notch fix doesn't apply, I use it. Anyway, I stay on RC, so in my case, the question does not arise. This is mainly to advise other users in case.. 🙂
After a few conversations on Telegram and here: The third time I tswitched to RC, there was finally no quick battery drain. So I apologize for the fuss I made - I was really a bit scared - and thank you for the support.
Nonetheless, I have no idea what it was - but who am I to complain.... I'm glad everything is working again.... helpful I was just not testing, sorry for that too.
@muskist No pioneering stuff I just jumped in and used the installer for the X00TD version. I think they are all the same, but for different regions have a slight difference to account for that region. I am trying to install UT on phones from the list to see what each experience is like - experience varies!😲 This is the first ASUS phone I have seen, let alone got hold of as they aren't popular where I am - popular phones are iPhones, Samsung, Huawei, Pixel and Motorola (I can sincerely say Motorola are by far the best new budget phones, they do as they say on the box and are so reliable).
I've had a couple hours to play around with it and the maturity seems accurate. Most features work, currently just having issues with GPS, flashlight, and data/mms, but I think data/mms is an issue with my APN settings as the SIM in slot 1 is recognized and I can do calls and sms without issue (haven't tried slot 2).
There's a couple really annoying issues though. First, the keyboard backlight doesn't work. The LED for capslock works fine, but only a couple keys by it are lit if it's on and everything else is off. Second, the on screen keyboard doesn't disable if the phone is open to expose the hardware keyboard, and it blocks almost all of the screen if you're in landscape. I'm having to manually enable/disable the on screen keyboard when I don't want to use the physical keyboard. If there's a sensor that can act as a trigger to toggle both of these I think it'd be a really solid device.
I'm going to work on getting the device page updated either tonight or later this week.
Thanks for your ansers. The Redmi 7a has the codename Pine. There is an installation instruction on Youtube for Redmi 7a, but it is very long. Thanks for your detailed explanation. I will try the second video on Youtube which was also helpful. If got also a Poco F1 to flash, which I love for it s usb-c port and because of Joels port. I will definitely become a Ubports and Linux user because of the many Linux phones, Linux AsteroidOS watches and Linux Nano PCs which are available. The time is gone when you had to carry around a Laptop with Matlab for sensor data acquisition 👏 .
And so she types 'onep' or 'xper' or another suitable combination of letters... and the right options pop up (or there is a notice that this phone is not yet supported). It can't get quicker than that.
The visibility of that option is very poor in either Dark Mode Firefox of Day Mode Pale Moon 😞
Also sometimes Search functions don't find what I am looking for while the thing I am looking for is actually there so I have stopped trusting them a very long time ago! 😉
I would not want to scroll down to Oneplus or Sony...
