Solved Unable to install on 16Gb version of Bacon
Why does the 16Gb version of Bacon always cause problems?
Focal is a no go on Bacon with the scaling issue, but on the 16Gb versions point blank refuses to get to the phone screen "desktop", but hangs at the Ubuntu logo.
Xenial stable may or may not install, when it does the no WiFI bug rears its head.
Xenial Halium-development just fails to install and always boots to recovery.
I have got UT on the 16Gb versions before, but I just cannot get it too install now at all. Tried with my Ubuntu Machine and Windows 11.
The 64Gb version allows an install every time.
The gremlins are out, I will try another day.
So.... It looks like adb is disabled for recovery on 16.04 Halium Development and also is not working on Focal (20.04) development - bear in mind this is a 16Gb OPO and it works on the 64Gb OPO.
I flattened the device, i.e. formatted all partitions with TWRP and managed to get 16.04 stable to install. But alluding to the above, NO WiFI.
Followed the Github instruction, using a windows 11 machine.
Copied the text of the WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini to a text file, but saved it as that title as an ini file and copied it to my adb folder.
I followed the commands:
adb devices # start the daemon and verify your phone is plugged-in adb shell # start a shell in the phone mkdir /persist # create a folder to mount /persist mount /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/persist /persist exit adb push WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini /persist/ # send the file adb shell adb umount /persist # unmount /persist exit
There is an error - adb umount /persist should be umount /persist
Reboot and Wifi is working.
Thanks to all from the old thread and glad to see it still works.
