I had similar error messages but it still created the image file - see attached log.

Not a way supported by GloDroid at least. The alternative is microG which may be possible at some point.

Edit: It turns out you can use magisk to install microg module as well enable signature spoofing.

1) patch boot.img with magisk app
2) adb reboot fastboot
3) fastboot flash boot_a magisk_patched.img
4) fastboot reboot

Editing the script to remove the vbmeta.img line allowed the script to complete successfully, and boot the system on the phone! Thanks everyone for the help!

Time for another fuzzy video - this time running a couple of popular apps.

This looks great. I'm excited for the state of Android on PinePhone -- having an Android option available will really help introduce some of my less technically-inclined friends and family to the Pine64 platform.

postmarketOS CE owner, checking in. I have the convergence edition with 3 GB RAM.

I've downloaded your linked release and flashed deploy-sd.img to a SD card. After inserting this SD card into my PinePhone and holding the power button, I get a red LED, no backlight/output on the screen.

The flash-sd.sh script included with the release also doesn't seem to work. I get:
Code:
[branon@void-live glodroid]$ ./flash-sd.sh
+ ./fastboot flash gpt deploy-gpt.img
./fastboot: 2: Syntax error: ")" unexpected

Feels like two separate issues to me. Can you confirm if the release linked in your post is intended to be used with the 3 GB variant?

Not sure what's up with the syntax error on the shell script though.

I suspect you're right - you can try generating a flashable image as described here while we await confirmation from the developer.

Edit: 3gb version should be compatible - have you succesfully booted another distro from the sd card?
