Android M-Preview

M-Preview for Android was announced today at the Google I/O 2015.
The default installation with ‘flash-all’ failed with a notorious error

archive does not contain ‘boot.sig’
archive does not contain ‘recovery.sig’
fastboot(11516,0xa04841d4) malloc:  mach_vm_map(size=1981542400) failed (error code=3)
 error: can’t allocate region
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
failed to allocate 1979559444 bytes
error: update package missing system.img

so we have to try it step by step

  1. Download Hardware Image
  2. Connect your device over USB
  3. adb reboot bootloader
  4. fastboot oem unlock
  5. ./
  6. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
  7. fastboot flash boot boot.img
  8. fastboot flash system system.img
  9. fastboot flash cache cache.img
  10. fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
  11. fastboot reboot



Silent is back!

In the M-Preview the silent mode is back again
