Call for testing: A new way to ignore your problems
I think I was having some long boot/unity failing especially while remounting my encrypted home.
The install went fine, reboot too, restarting unity8 seems faster/smoother.
Does this install is erased after a system upgrade ?
I will test this tomorrow a bit.
So far I have found a work-around for my OPO. If I reboot Unity8 never starts it just keeps looping as you described, unless...
I wait for the purple unity splash, then just as it dims the screen (as auto brightness comes online I assume) if I turn off the screen via the power button and wait 20-30sec for the boot to finish, when I turn on the screen I am greeted with a working lockscreen and all is well.
I have had to do this at most reboots since switching to dev after OTA11. If I don't, the phone eventually boots aftet 5-10mins if looping.

Trying this on the Sony Xperia X now. Mostly had reboots when using too much webapps.
Installed without complaint this morning and so far 3 boots have gone flawlessly (from the user perspective). Not bad.

Seems it works fine for me on OPO...
Tested on BQ E5 running dev with todays update installed before the test.
Sadly I do still get the SIM pin dialog skipped now on 2 out of 5 reboots.
I hope I am not mixing up things. This is (too) what this fix is about, isn't it?
@danfro, no, not really.
I switched to stable and back this weekend to fix an issue of contacts syncing, and when I got back to devel it worked as before with the screen needing to be turned off for unity to boot. I applied this fix and all is well again.
Thanks, everyone. We've merged this change and the fix should appear in tomorrow's images.
