So i finally got TWRP to mount System and Data, and was able to flash CM11 files but the device wouldnt boot after so i've gone back to 0527 again using the sd card restore method...
Now i'm just trying Elenari to see if i have any better luck there but already running into issues attempting to install stock 1018.
I have copied the files from the stock archive to the root of my SD card which includes- the rom file, u-boot.bin, and ulmage_recovery. Powering the device with volume down and power i see the android logo briefly while it boots up into recovery but then its just a black screen. I left it for 15 mins to see if anything happened but just remained on black screen with apparently nothing happening.
I then proceeded to try and flash the rom archive using the stock 0527 recovery but its failing on the device check with the following error:
assert failed getprop ("ro.product.device") == "g06refe1" | | ("ro.build.product") == "g06refe1"
E: Error in / tmp / sideload / package.zip
Comparing the updater-script from 0527 it appears the device is set to "g06ref" which is why its failing above as its looking for "g06refe1".
Is there anyway to bypass this check using stock recovery?
