XT905 - flashing recovery overwrites system
I have an stock, unlocked and rooted xt905 lying here with stock recovery right now.
For several times now I tried to flash either cwm or twrp but had no luck.
Thats what I did:
- complete backup
- unlock bootloader
- restore backup
- fastboot flash boot twrp.img
- fastboot reboot
Flashing twrp doesnt throw up any error but as soon as I say reboot, the phone reboots into twrp instead of booting the system.
If I try to reboot to system within twrp, it reboots to twrp again. Booting to recovery from twrp brings me to stock recovery.
Its the same thing with cwm and I dont have any clue why, as other users are saying that twrp is working fine.
Till now I tried several different versions of fastboot, twrp and cwm and none of them worked.
