(yes I didn't check the CM recovery)
*But after I updated to the 33R update I still had root access intact, despite gaining root by boot and not having unlocked the bootloader under 33R. The problem was I did a factory reset and obviously it reflashed the newer bootloader and I lost root access (yes stupid)
This can no longer be done 'fastboot boot twrpimgname.img' with the 33R update ;
Aren't One Plus all about give you the power so why did they go ahead and block boot custom recovery that worked before ??
This is the under 33R OTA =
C:\adb>adb reboot bootloader
C:\adb>fastboot boot openrecovery-twrp-22.214.171.124-bacon.img
OKAY [ 0.402s]
FAILED (remote: Device not unlocked cannot boot)
finished. total time: 0.404s
Seems the have patched being able to boot a custom recovery without unlocking the boot loader
Yes I realized the the 'Update CM recovery' option but not after I updated to 33R (my oneplus was rooted without having to unlock the boot loader)
I did do a Nandriod backup of course before the 33R OTA.
The nandriod backup is rooted without having to unlock the bootloader via this ' fastboot boot twrpimgname.img '
Is their no way yet to boot a custom recovery without unlocking the boot loader ? Does one have to wait for a update twrp recovery to boot not flash ?
