Max videos are seemingly obsolete anyone any ideas ?
Both for me and another forum member
So far i have gathered that u need to do it using adb/fastboot (twrp) method doesnt work.
u need something called vbmeta file to stop some kind of protection so u can boot.
Not every gsi will work so if u do get a bootloop try other gsi first.
When u have a phone that is a partition only but if u are running a newer android 10/11 custom rom then u need a a/b partition gsi.
Honestly i am stuck i dont know why it wont work see below for the errors.
also vbmeta flash tried both commands see below
C:\Users\nnnnn>fastboot --disable-verification flash vbmeta C:\Users\nnnnn\Desktop\vbmeta.img
fastboot: unknown option – disable-verification
C:\Users\nnnnn>fastboot flash vbmeta C:\Users\nnnnn\Desktop\vbmeta.img
target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes
sending ‘vbmeta’ (4 KB)…
OKAY [ -0.000s]
FAILED (remote: Flashing is not allowed for partition
finished. total time: 0.016s
(one member said some phones are partly closed so gave a command to open it but didnt work because my phoen was already completly open)
C:\Users\nnnnn>fastboot erase userdata(-w)
FAILED (remote: No such partition.)
finished. total time: -0.000s
Flashing of gsi itself does work but just bootloops tried several gsi cause not everyone will work for your phone so i am geussing vbmeta wont flash for me thats what i need to flash gsi succesfully.
Anyone ideas ? @gregoryaul or maybe Max from the youtube videos?
