I've purchased an used Xiaomi Mi A2 lite.|
Unfortunately the seller withhold the information that it was flashed with lineagos.
This ROM has android version 8.1 and is not able to update.
The stock ROMs are all depending on partition A/B layout but this LOS does not support it.
# fastboot set_active other
fastboot: error: Device does not support slots
So I cannot use any of those fastboot ROMs I found.
Also the device is identified as 'sakura' - not as 'daisy' which makes all attempts to flash via fastboot using the given *bat or *sh files impossible.
# fastboot getvar product
The xiaomi flash tool always stops with: "missmatching image and device error" as the images are for daisy or even jasmine which is A2 without 'lite' (yes, the official latest image from xiaomi namely for Mi A2 lite 'Xiaomi_Mi_A2_Lite_V10.0.13.0.PDIMIXM_20190807.0000.00_Global_9.0_XFT' is for jasmine!)
I also installed the xiaomi PC suite but the phone is not recognized by it when I start it in the recovery which is still the original xiaomi one.
Is there any way to get the stock rom reinstalled and get rid of this ancient LOS?
Thank you in advance for any help and hints.
