Currently my phone is hanging when I try to boot into TWRP (but I’m still able to boot into the OS). I hope I will be able to somehow start or install the community port of a newer TWRP release using adb/fastboot.
I updated from 16.12 with encrypted data and XPosed, but only flashed XPosed after the update (i.e. within an extra TWRP session). However, I haven’t experienced any bootloop (as I expected from other’s reports with similar setups concerning 17.01)!
Hey @Lidwien, thanks for the link. I followed those steps. But it doesn’t work…
Following the step in the link you provided: 1) I have the latest zips and (1.7), since my phone is encrypted, I saved them on an external SD 2) I did the update (updater says I am on 17.0.2) 3) Flashing goes wrong (see my first post)
I installed FPOSOS [FPOOS : don’t use censorship on my posts @paulakreuzer. I already don’t like it on wikified pages, but on my posts, it’s unacceptable] 17.02, with GravityBox on top, started my script to get external storage writable, rebooted twice in the process, installed back WaveUp, and nope… I lost 50% of the batterie in 5h.
So I uninstalled WaveUp and lost 25% in 10minutes, rebooted and everything want well back.
I succeeded in installing 17.02 but not seamlessly.
I downloaded fp2-sibon-17.02.0-manual-userdebug.zip & open-gapps-arm5.1-pico-20170302.zip on my SD card.
(I did not unzipped any of these files)
Entered TWRP mode
and tried to install both files, but I get unable to mount errors
Then I tried the updater and installed 17.02
and installed openGAPPS in TWRP
fp2-sibon-17.02.0-manual-userdebug.zip is not for use with TWRP, it is used with fastboot on your PC with the phone connected via USB in fastboot mode, see this guide, and it is not an update, it is a new install of your phone, erasing all your data.
I don’t have enough knowledge of TWRP and the OTA update process to say whether “unable to mount” errors would make a successful update via TWRP impossible, if you use the correct OS file, but you can get around “unable to mount” errors by wiping the partition that gives the error (TWRP - Wipe - Advanced Wipe - only check the partition that gives the error) … Of course, always be extra careful with wipe, I would always try the Updater App first.
Not if you have modifications. Afaik updating via the updater app doesn’t give you the opportunity to flash other zips before leaving recovery mode and rebooting before flashing your modifications can cause a bootloop.
I never use the Updater and never have issues updating.
Ah, thanks for pointing that out, I just did the same as @Framb00s without putting much thought into it, updated to 17.02 via Updater and reinstalled Open GApps via TWRP as it was missing afterwards … So it could be more problematic, good to know.
Found this guide just now, have to search the forum more thoroughly, will do .
