I think something's wrong with my phone! I tried doing fastboot -w, it's stuck on "Erasing "userdata"" and htop shows fastboot process in D state, meaning uninterruptible sleep... ugh what should I do? will it be safe to disconnect my phone? I don't want to brick my bootloader or eMMC but I don't care about most of the data, I can just reflash it afterwards (I don't care about /system and /data at least)
@lynnesbian you seem to know a bit of stuff about android maybe you can tell? >< I'm scared about bricking my phone, I can't buy a new one
@vika that sounds kinda complex...
you can generally just reflash from scratch if something like that happens. as long as you can boot your device into download mode, you can recover it, usually with a custom recovery like TWRP
@lynnesbian so you don't think pulling the USB cable outta my phone when it's erasing stuff will brick the flash completely right? I might try this if you can say you're like 99% sure about that
@lynnesbian basically fastboot -w is erase system + erase userdata I think
@vika yeah i don't actually know ;u;
i've never done that particular method before... :s
@lynnesbian ugh I'm so scared
@lynnesbian YAY I think I haven't bricked it, `fastboot getvar version` responds... well, properly I think?
