Does anyone know if it is possible to install TWRP on the fairphone 1? I am trying to install opengapps following: ✏ Install OpenGAPPS (Step-by-step guide) but need twrp.
I can’t recall that I ever read someone had ported TWRP for the FP1.
But maybe it would work with the recovery from the inofficial kitkat release
Though I never tested it.
CWM works great on FP1. I use it ever since @chrmhoffmann started porting CM11 to the FP1 (End of 2014).
Does CWM allow you to override the verification check? That seems to be the main thing that is needed:
Important: Uncheck the Zip file signature verification
Yes, there is a toggle (I think somewhere under the “Advanced” option).
Hmmm I tried to install the recovery from here:
but got the following error (this is on linux):
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img sending 'recovery' (5688 KB)... OKAY [ 0.247s] writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: partition 'recovery' not support flash) finished. total time: 0.266s
Move the recovery to your SD card and install CWM via the stock recovery.
Thank you. Someone else also pointed me in the right direction. I now have successfully installed opengapps following this link for installing cwm recovery:
(Note only use the recovery installation instructions)
And the next steps from here: ✏ Install OpenGAPPS (Step-by-step guide)
Yes indeed I have been using it too successfully
