Can't get into fastboot
So, for some reason I can't seem to get into fastboot. I previously had Sailfish X installed on this (came that way from the ebay seller and was the reason I bought it initially), so I'm not sure if that's partly why, but if I hold volume up and put in the usb cable, it just starts with a red led, then goes to charging. If I do a hard reboot (hold volume up and power past three vibrations) sometimes I can get it to go into what looks like fastboot (blue led), but the one time I got it to work the ubports installer still wouldn't recognize it.
Any leads as to how I could fix this? I'm pretty new to the android modding scene, and it was absolute hell just getting stock android back onto my other Xperia, the XA2 haha. The X is a much more solid device imo though, and I'd love to get it up and running again.
I had installed on my Xperia X Sailfish X OS and managed to install with ubports installer after some time to install ubports successfully (directly without reinstalling android before). This was quite difficult and I guess I had to activate the developer mode in sailfish os before.
Today in ubports a software update failed and therefore I tried to reinstall ubports with the ubports installer and I got the message![alt text]( even if I already had ubports installed on thart device and developer mode activated.
I have installed on my Sony Xperia X Ubuntu touch. Today under software updates a new update version 609 appeared.
I downloaded it and installed it.
The install restarted the phone and the sony bootloader reported a recovery error. Thus the bootloader went back to the previous version from 21.01.21.
When I now come back to the software update menu, it still provides update version 609 as available, downloaded and ready for install.
If however I try to install it, it asks for "Restart & Installing" (german "Neustart & Installieren"), but nothing happens.
Now I have tried to install ubuntu touch with the ubports installer from scratch.
This failed with the above image, even if it worked successfully with a previous version of the bootloader before.
I made here a separate issue:
