WayDroid installation fails

Re: Open Ubuntu Touch to all Android applications !
I followed the mentioned instructions and tried to install WayDroid on a JingPad C1 with UT OTA-23 installed. The second attempt was with a fresh install of UT. I tried both installation methods in the other thread i.e. The WayDroid Helper app and with command line.
Each time the installation appears to go successfully. I reboot and when I start the WayDroid the app logo comes up and a spinning blue circle appears. This is as far as it goes.
Opening a terminal and using the ps command I see there is a lot happening. Most of what I see I don't understand.
Same problem here with a OnePlus 5 running the OTA23. I tried Waydroid helper three times (a few minutes for each try) and the command line method (almost two hours). I had previously forbidden the automatic turning off of the screen and did not touch the phone during installation. I still have that little blue turning wheel.

@gwengui Just try restarting the phone. I got fed up waiting tried that and WayDroid was there.
I can confirm the problem el_pinguino and gwengui describe above. I just attempted to install Waydroid using Waydroid Helper on a new installation of UBPorts on a Pixel 3a. The installation seemed to be successful and the phone rebooted. The Waydroid icon is there, Waydroid launches, the logo appears and the little blue wheel turns, but Lineage does not open. Please pass along to the powers that be that this installation method is still buggy. Thanks.

@ck67 WayDroid is a separate project to UT so the devs working on WayDroid are not the same though there might be some cross over. Maybe @stanwood can say where best other than here to report issues. There is the Telegram group I will find the link.
https://t.me/waydroidonut If you look at the group info there are other links you might want to have a look at.

@lakotaubp We can use the links that can be found in the installation tuto here:
At the end of the topic I did list all relatives Telegram and web sites.
To report a bug, the official WayDroid Github repository is here:
Hope it could help...
@el_pinguino Greetings, I think it must be a bug with the new versions of waydroid. What has worked for me is to download an older version at https://sourceforge.net/projects/waydroid/files/ (for example a version from May 2022). There are two folders you need inside images: vendor and system. You download a version of each. In turn when you go into the vendor (or system) folder different folders appear (waydroid_x86, waydroid_arm64, etc.). To know which one you need, you just need to check which folder waydroid downloads when you install it.
The steps to install the old version are:
Install waydroid with the usual steps (https://forums.ubports.com/topic/7172/waydroid-installation-on-fp3-tips-and-tricks), but before rebooting go to the /var/lib/waydroid/images/ folder, delete the system.img and vendor.img images and put in that folder the images you downloaded from the first link. Then reboot and you have it.
@el_pinguino Saludos, creo que debe ser un error con las nuevas versiones de waydroid. A mí lo que me ha funcionado es descargarme una versión antigua en https://sourceforge.net/projects/waydroid/files/ (por ejemplo una versión de mayo de 2022). Hay dos carpetas que necesitas dentro de images: vendor y system. Te descargas una versión de cada uno. A su vez cuando entras en la carpeta vendor ( o system) aparecen distintas carpetas (waydroid_x86, waydroid_arm64, etc.). Para saber cuál necesitas basta con fijarse qué carpeta descarga waydroid cuando lo instalas.
Los pasos para instalar la versión antigua son:
Instalar waydroid con los pasos usuales (https://forums.ubports.com/topic/7172/waydroid-installation-on-fp3-tips-and-tricks), pero antes de reiniciar vas a la carpeta /var/lib/waydroid/images/, borras las imágenes system.img y vendor.img y pones en esa carpeta las imágenes que has descargado del primer enlace. Luego reinicias y ya lo tienes.

What worked for me installing Waydroid on OP5t OTA24 Stable was installing from the Terminal using the following commands:
sudo mount -o remount,rw /
apt install waydroid -y
sudo waydroid session stop
sudo sed '/aidl/s/2/3/' -i /etc/gbinder.d/anbox.conf
