So i thought about what u mentioned about the spelling and i checked and indeed i made a typo… i then tried it again using that same method and it worked.
I now have twrp recovery on my phone. however i dont understand this whole cmd thing find it kinda scary to be honest also can u explain (if u r wiling ) to me why this method worked and yours didnt ? can u explain what that other method is i did do exactlly
i really would like to learn exactlly what i did so when i do this again i wont be scratching my head…
Aslo i already found the howto on the forum but didnt really understand it see link below
the other method went like this
step 1(connect phone while on??)
adb devices (I believe if this works this shows if the phone is connected as it wil show a serial number below it)
adb reboot bootloader (to make phone go in to fastbootmode)
fastboot devices (to see if phone is stil connected while in fastbootmode???)
step 4 ()
fastboot flash recovery (then drag img file to the command screen it will auto insert the location if said file)
that is it this is somekind of simpler method orsomething but i really dont understand.
see below for how it looked like in command screen.
Using the second method by using ADB commands is indeed the simpler method. If you use my tutorial and setup Minimal ADB and Fastboot how it says to in the link I posted in that tutorial, then running the commands is very simple. The only issue some people have is using Power Shell and not Command Prompt. The commands are still the same except with Power Shell you have to put .\ in front of the commands, whereas with Command Prompt you do not. Which part is confusing you, I’ll see if I can help clarify it for you.
I just went back and revised my ADB and Fastboot 101 tutorial a little. I see where some of it might have been slightly confusing. But like I said, if you need some help don’t hesitate to ask. Especially since I typed up the tutorial. Haha
About your cmd tutorial it is fine i am just not the smartest tool in the shed hahha i need background info or the order of how to do things forexample in my case it should be like this (taken from your cmd tutorial)
When wanting to put twrp recovery or other recoverys??? on ur android phone
connect phone while on to the computer
step 1 - open command
step 2 - to see if your phone is detected by your computer
step 3 - to make phone go in fastbootmode
step 4 - fastboot devices (to see if phone is stil connected while in fastbootmode???)
step 5 - fastboot flash recovery -enter file location like this see below-
recovery_20200723.img press enter
This is the order i have to do to get in this case twrp recovery on my phone correct?
but what would the order forexample be for like say i want to unlock the bootloader from a generic android phone is it like this ?
step 1 adb devices (shows all connected Fastboot devices)
step 2 adb reboot bootloader or adb reboot fastboot (reboots the phone back to the bootloader)
step 3 adb devices (shows all connected Fastboot devices)
step 4 fastboot oem unlock (unlocks the bootloader but some phones require a code from the manufacturer to unlock it)
like this ??? sorry if it is suppossed to be obvious orsomething
if u could add the order in what steps u would need to do to get the thing done like say see above unlockingbootloader? or other things u need regarding flashing custom rom
Also what did i do wrong when i followed gregoryaul explanation? see bellow also why did i need to typ in cd infront of everything and not the way i ended up using
Thank you for your fast reply.
I have tried it your way is without the puting the phone in fastbootmode trough the computer? you have to do it manually right?
The steps you listed for unlocking the bootloader by using adb commands is perfect. I will go back and add that to the tutorial a little later today when I get a chance.
On the part about having issues with the C:\Users\n commands that gregoryaul explained, I’m actually not sure as I’ve never done it myself that way. I’ve always used Minimal ADB and Fastboot and used the normal adb commands like in my tutorial.
Do Factory Reset in TWRP (necessarily, otherwise the installation over the old LineageOS inherits some errors of the old LineageOS). I recommend doing an additional cleaning (this solves the problem with «update error 7»): TWRP – Wipe – Advanced Wipe – Dalvik,System,Cache,Data.
anyway after twrp recovery seemed to have been gone aswell ? is that because of the new firmware i put on there it deleted the twrp ? i am geussing.
After i unlocked bootlaoder again and opend cmd to put twrp on my phone again but it could not see my devices for some reason i thought maybe drivers where also gone ? so i opend the driver program put it on there again and now cmd can see my phone again.
Oke so now great now i put twrp on my phone again easy peazy lemon squizy i thought since i had already done it … however i could not get it on! i kept getting the error eventually i just copied what i had posted here in the past and pasted it and enter and that did the trick but now i have no idea why it didnt work/why it did after the copy/paste
i thought i was over this but geuss not … anyone can tell me what i did wrong?
This gonna drive me crazy…
