FP2 - Failed to enter recovery when using ubuntu-flash-device

  • Hi,

    I tried to install the ubuntu-touch verison on my FP2 using

    sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server=http://system-image.ubports.com touch --channel=ubuntu-touch/stable --device=FP2 --bootstrap

    but it fails telling me:

    2016/02/20 19:26:58 Device is |FP2|
    2016/02/20 19:26:58 Flashing version 3 from ubuntu-touch/stable channel and server http://system-image.ubports.com to device FP2

    Failed to enter Recovery

    Since I flashed it the first time, pressing volume up while starting brings me into recovery (volume down into fastboot mode) which is opposite to before. The fastboot bootloader does not show up anymore on the screen of my phone, however, if I use "sudo fastboot devices" it lists the phone and I can use ubuntu-device-flash again.

    When I reboot it into recovery I end up with the Ubports Recovery so it seems to have done something. From there I could even install a ubuntu zip, if I had it.

    On the web a found a thread discussing that it might be related to adb not being enabled in recovery mode:
    (https://askubuntu.com/questions/602035/how-do-i-use-ubuntu-device-flash-with-the-bq-aquaris-e4-5-and-aquaris-e5) so I was wondering if that could be the case here as well and if so, where I could find and engineering recovery image.
