Installation on Galaxy S3 - no replicant-6.0-i9300.zip

Added by Larry Cotton about 2 months ago

Hi

I have got hold of a galaxy s3 i9300 and am attempting to install replicant for the first time.
I am using a ubuntu 20..04 system to load the firmware from:
VERSION="20.04.6 LTS (Focal Fossa)"
ID=ubuntu
ID_LIKE=debian
PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS"
VERSION_ID="20.04"
I am following the instructions on this site:
[[https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/GalaxyS3I9300Installation]]

So far I have followed the instructions for installing the recovery image up to:
9. Select the system zip: replicant-6.0-i9300.zip

seemingly successfully, but I cannot see this zip file anywhere on the device.

in /data/media there are three directories:
0
legacy
obb

and in 0 there are 4 directories
.face
.thumbnail
Alarms
Android

But I see no files.

Can anyone guess what I may have done wrong or might have gone wrong?
Does anyone know what I could do to rectify the problem ?

Apologies.

I misinterpreted the instructions - I think I need to load the zip file using adb.

I believe it has now installed successfully (at least it has rebooted and I've gone through a setup menu)
