I’m not sure if it belongs in this topic, but I have the problem that I can’t enter anymore the recovery mode.
Last week I did the upgrade to LOS 15.1 and wanted to update to this weeks update of LOS today, but couldn’t install anything because it seems like I can’t enter TWRP anymore? Afterwards the failed update, my FP2 simply rebooted instead of enter the recovery mode, so I tried to reboot into recovery without the LOS updater app, but even this didn’t work.
So I’m not sure what is wrong? Do I need to reflash TWRP or did I brick something?
In LOS everything seems to work, at least I didn’t imagine anything wrong.
before the update to 15.1 I installed the latest version of TWRP.
the guide to boot into recovery without flashing doesn’t work for me, because similar to @bastoGrande my phone after flashing last weeks’ LOS 15.1 can now only reboot into OS.
Any adb reboot recovery or adb reboot bootloader (or power + Vol+ or power + Vol-) always results into booting OS instead. Even when using the previously installed TWRP app I experience the same problem.
fastboot doesn’t recognize the phone when OS has booted and with adb I cannot flash anything…
Sry if i do a re-post or asking a question already solved, but i have a problem with twrp 18.104.22.168 an LineageOS 15.1 (Build 20181022).
I have installed twrp 22.214.171.124 and LOS 15.1 today and encrypted my FP2 in LOS. I can reboot or shutdown/start my FP2 and enter my encryption key. Normal boot, normal function and login in LOS. So far so good.
But when i want to boot into twrp-recovery (manual or enhanced restart-menu in LOS) i can not enter the encryption key. This error appears:
Updating partition details…
Unable to mount storage
Full SELinux support is present.
Failed to decrypt data.
Im sure, ive typed the correct code, the key works by starting into LOS.
Does anyone have a solution for this situation or more information…?
If you want a fix now, install one of Fairphone’s OSes (Android 6 currently), set a lock screen pin/password/pattern, then encrypt the phone, then install TWRP 3.2.3-0 and wipe everything (only wipe, no format!), then install LineageOS 15.1 . That way TWRP can still access the encrypted data partition, and LineageOS 15.1 is fine with it, too.
Thanks AnotherElk, seems to be a little tricky for me…
I have tested de update to the lastest LOS-Build (20181029) with encrypted phone and all worked perfectly. So its only the access to the encrypted partition in twrp, that doesn`t work. And i will need this access only, if i have a problem with my phone/LOS, to wipe, format or something…
By the way, the same twrp works perfectly on my samsung s7 (also encripted). Seems to be only a problem of a few twrp-recoverys / phones, including the fairphone 2…
I will wait for a (hopefully fast) solution/update of twrp.
I’m no developer either … so, perhaps you really have found something here.
I only saw at first glance that the fix seemed to be for bacon (= OnePlus One), and since fixes for several devices exist already and didn’t translate over to the Fairphone 2 as per the statement of @z3ntu (the maintainer of Fairphone 2 TWRP) in the other topic, I thought I’d link to his statement here, too.
