  • iPlay50 Mini Lite

    Alright well, I don’t know why this article decided to leave this out considering how much time I wasted looking for a solution, but Alldocube actually provides firmware on their website: https://www.alldocube.com/en/firmware/

  • iPlay50 Mini Lite

    Okay c’mon really no instructions for how to get the boot.img?
    I found and followed another guide but got stuck on:

    adb shell cat /proc/partitions
    cat: /proc/partitions: Permission denied

    So…I have no idea what to do from here.

    Also fair warning don’t use ‘fastbootd’ to unlock, it won’t work. Only regular fastboot which you can get to via ‘adb reboot bootloader’.
