Default Has anyone got the TWRP Recovery to work??

Has anyone successfully gotten to TWRP Recovery to install for their Omate?
I have tried to do it using GooManager, but it says it cant find it.

I have also attempted to do the alternate methods but cant find a scatter file for it ?
Is there any tutorial on this that has worked for anyone?

I installed TWRP on my TrueSmart this morning via adb while booted to Android. Rename the file that you download to twrp.img and then do the following:
adb push twrp.img /sdcard/twrp.img
adb shell dd if=/sdcard/twrp.img of=/dev/recovery

Done.

Thanks for the info. I now have it installed.
But when trying to do a backup it says( Failed )
Updating Partition details...
Kernel does not have support for running this application.

Try running the backup again. If you get an error, adb pull /tmp/recovery.log without rebooting and attach or paste the log to a paste site.

If you are getting 'Unable to create folder' error, then rename the backup name and it should work

That did the trick!!! Renaming the backup. Thanks.

One final question here: I have been using apps like goomanager to reboot into recovery, but how can you enter TWRP straight from turning the watch on.
Is there a key combo that needs to be held when turning the watch on to get right into TWRP? I tried holding down the bottom right key and that did not work.

I was having the same issue. Did exactly what Dees_Troy suggested and it worked like a charm.

Thanks!

Now to wait for roms, because the stock one blows so far.

Ouch!!! I can always take Operative and instead of a 100MB file make it +600MB file and call it a "ROM" if it will help.

Sorry, I have a fairly high standard of roms at this point.

Dont want to go too far off topic, but I've had some issues with bluetooth (pairs, doesn't stay connected, thus making the companion app useless), battery life, etc.

I may have to run tasker scripts to emulate some of the things I want it to do with notifications and turning the screen on. Finally, if I install a new launcher, it'd be wonderful if it didn't cover up the notifications bar.
