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.

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.
Ubuntop- U4A/Webtop hybrid for all Tegra2 Motorola phones (Fully integrated Ubuntu Desktop)
Live ROM (One "ROM" over 12 phones) (Featured on XDA Portal and multiple other sites around the world and as base by many devs)
Imperium Initiative Photon (used as base by many Photon devs)
Imperium Initiative LS970 (used as base by many LS970 devs)
Imperium Agent LS970 (LS970 version of Live ROM)
Evo Desktop PC (Featured on XDA Portal and multiple other sites around the world)
(Nexus Q)uantum Singularity Project (Media Center, File Server, Website Server, LinuxonAndroid in little black ball of joy)
Umeox x201 EnSec Enhanced Security Patch and Live ROM Installer (used by multiple devs world wide on over 6 different models/versions of x201's)

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.

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.

Did you build the stock rom? If so, I meant no offense.
