I was trying to install anbox on the Librem 5, didn’t work out as the morphis dir doesn’t have a master branch, so updating that is disabled by default, which led to me trying to install the anbox kernels manually, which didn’t work out either as the directories aren’t the same between pureOS and whatever OS the instructions were for.
Anyways, here’s how I softlocked my phone: I tried deleting the zip file for the two kernels, which is more or less impossible to do unless you have the phone linked up to a PC, as releasing your finger from the file makes the additional file options disappear. I tried deleting the file for a handful of minutes, and voila, the file icon now teleports to wherever I click, as if I’m trying to drag the file, even if I’m not. I tried shutting the phone down to see if it disappears, but now I can’t really get past “cryptsetup: crypt_root:set up successfully” (as I don’t have a nano SIM card yet, I get that screen every time), as the screen just goes blank black screen after a couple minutes of showing that the cryptsetup worked.
Really wish there was an easy way to factory reset the phone, because I don’t have pureOS installed on my VirtualBox on my laptop.
I do have a 64-bit Debian installed, but when following the flash reset instructions, I can’t get “uuu” installed because the package unable to be located.
I tried installing snap on my Debian VM, and getting uuu that way (am assuming uuu is universal update utility) but it didn’t help.
I have no clue what causes me to get

I needed to install the python3 packages tqmd, yaml, and jenkins before I could do the final step. (Sorry for being so noob XD)
I am now getting spammed by windows not recognizing the phone and thus disconnecting and reconnecting it over and over again. No clue how to actually flash my phone now
Clicking the phone “USB” made it so the flashing went forward, but it adamantly refuses to recognize Snap’s universal update utility, so I can’t actually flash because I don’t have uuu installed, and I have no clue how to install it.
Updated my debian distro from Buster (10) to Bullseye (11), whereupon I could finally install uuu
Pretty sure that because my windows is constantly unplugging and replugging the phone, I can’t finish resetting it, because I keep getting
I literally cannot get past this stage due to the device gettind disconnected and reconnected by windows or smt during the installation of files. Best I’ve gotten so far is 0 Succeeded, 1 Failed during install.
Really need help here.
I should add that I’ve done all this with the USB-C to USB-C cable that came with the phone, will try with a different kinda cable tomorrow.
