  1. This didn’t work for me. There were 8 sparsechunks. I had to add in the extra lines of code
    fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.5
    fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.6
    fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.7
    fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.8
