Flashing TRWP (or any recovery) fails

OK. But I don’t understand this part… So my first question was: where should I file the file twrp-3.2.1-0-FP2.img? Because I think this is the problem…

I tried:

fastboot flash recovery /storage/emulated/0/twrp-3.2.1-0-fp2.img
< waiting for device >

And

sudo fastboot flash recovery /storage/emulated/0/twrp-3.2.1-0-fp2.img
error: cannot load '/storage/emulated/0/twrp-3.2.1-0-fp2.img'

Still a problem with the path?

You execute the fastboot command on your computer, and the command looks for the TWRP image on your computer.

/storage/emulated/0/ is a path on your phone.

Yes… It’s not correct?..
How do I proceed? Indicate the path to the file that is on my computer? I thought I understood that we had to put the file on the Fairphone…

Oh my god:

sudo fastboot flash recovery '/home/XXX/folder/twrp-3.2.1-0-FP2.img' 
target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes
sending 'recovery' (10522 KB)...
OKAY [  0.483s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.137s]
finished. total time: 0.621s

That’s right???

Exactly.

That’s what fastboot flash recovery [file] does … it installs the image to the recovery partition on the phone.

And once the order is over, the phone does not react? It stays in mode fastboot?

Yes.
Just follow the guide … “6. Now reboot into recovery to verify the installation” :wink: .

Oh shit! I thought the phone would restart or shut down…

Thank you so much! It functioned!
