I'm having this problem: I can boot into bootloader (it's unlocked), I flashed TWRP recovery, and when I go into recovery mode...it says it's going, but then my screen goes wonky, all these weird lines. Anyone know wtf is going on?

Can't say I know what's going on but try flashing ClockWorkMod recovery. It works like a charm. That or double check the md5 of the file you flashed to make sure it correctly download.

First if your stuck at the wonky lines just hold power and volume down until phone restarts or turns off. Yea you flashed the wrong recovery. Check the one you downloaded it has to be the one for dlx only if it says dlxu or dlxub or whatever its says other then dlx its wrong. I did that too and flashing the correct one fixed it.

I had the same exact problem. I think the TWRP img we downloaded is corrupt. I just used CWM and it works great so flash that and you should be fine. Good luck!

Download the one under "arm devices" that says 3.1.3. Flash the zip in recovery.

Also, if you flash a custom ROM such as viper or newts sense 5 ROM, it will come pre rooted, so you don't need to do anything except flash the rom (and the boot.IMG if you have s-on).

Also, for those of you that are having trouble with twrp I had the same issue. Install cwm and then if you want to switch to twrp, download goomanager, then go to menu >install open recovery script. I've never had it fail that way.

So I've just picked up a DNA, my understanding is that there is no way to unlock the bootloader without doing the jtag thing.... which I'm not going to do. Is there any way to root the device?
