So the last two weeks Ive been trying to flash lineageOS on my new OnePlus6. Ive done multiple phones with custom roms without issue, but the new A/B partitioning makes it a lot more impossible.

I followed LineageOS their official guide for the phone twice and also suggestions from both OP subreddit as LineageOS subreddit.

After every fail I end up with a black screen and a blue LED, both when booting the OS and when booting TWRP from fastboot. Then Im doing a factory reset through a windows only tool and start over.

Im getting pretty frustrated, to a level I am almost saying FUCK it I will use google, since my current phone only works while connected to a charger. Since I really hate google I hope any of you can give a suggestion of flashing my phone.

    The details aren't totally clean but when you say blue led during boot that means fastboot. So you are not even running the kernel. Which isn't good. I have not yet worked with AB device so I can't give you my opinion so google is your best bet here. Also last_kmsg can help in situations like this

    @Haxk20 last kmsg, will check it out.
    Also I think with fadtboot it nprmally is a dark blur and this is a light blue.

    @kescherRant if you are referring that android phones break too often then its OEM fault not android. And the issue by him is that he tried to flash custom ROM. So again not Android fault. If you don't flash custom ROMs you won't have an issue. BTW Sony is one of the best OEMs.

    I'm more referring to the general state of Android. It's becoming like iOS in a way.

    @Codex404 I'll just flash an alternative OS. Something along the lines of SailfishOS perhaps.

    @kescherRant thats what I did, then I noticed there was literally no apps and android apps crashed right after booting. Then I bricked that phone and bought a OnePlus6.

    I enjoyed my XA2plus for 2 days
