SuperSU: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sZw...ew?usp=sharing

Steps to install TWRP and SuperSU
Copy the above SuperSU to your SDCard.
First of all, you will be required to unlock your bootloader.
There is an option for this under Developer Options in the settings menu. Activate this.
Also activate USB Debugging. This makes this a whole lot easier.

Now, open a terminal, if on Linux, or command prompt if on windows, and enter the following:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Code:
fasboot oem unlock
Follow the onscreen instructions to unloack your bootloader. THIS WILL WIPE YOUR DEVICE!!!
Once this is complete, it will go back to the fastboot screen.

Now, from within your terminal/command prompt, navigate to the folder where you have downloaded the above recovery.img to.
Enter the following command once there:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
This will flash TWRP to your device, overwriting the stock recovery.

Once this is complete, there will be a screen telling you how long it took etc. Now you need to hold down your volume up button, and power button. Keep holding these untill you reach the menu for recovery, fastboot or normal mode.
Select Recovery.
This will boot into TWRP for the first time. when you get there, you will be prompted with a screen asking for a password. Cancel this.
WHAT EVER YOU DO, DO NOT FORMAT DATA LIKE IT ASKS YOU!"" YOU WILL LOSE TWRP!!!
Your then presented with the main TWRP screen, go ahead and tap on Install. Next, hit Select Storage, and select Storage 1. This is your SDCard.
Now flash SuperSU.
When this is installed, reboot to your main system, and update the SuperSu binary.
Now proceed to reboot back to recovery, how ever you wish.
Once in recovery, go into Wipe, and hit Format Data, this will wipe your phone again, but youve just done this anyway so it doesnt matter
Now flash SuperSU again, just to be safe, the same way as above.
Reboot to your system, and your done!

You will have to go through the setup of the whole android system again, but its worth it your now rooted and have TWRP to install the Custom ROMs that will be coming shortly

Have Fun!

alright, so i tried to flash super su, but i never get to access the storage partitions (i think they are not mounted).
so i tried to factory reset / wipe the phone to get rid of the encryption, but i still cant select storage 1 from the menu.

here some more detail:

- i have already had the bootloader unlocked


- then i come to this screen when twrp starts, and select "swipe to allow modifications"


- then i press install and want to select "storage 1", this however doesnt work. (due to encryption?)


- i tried to mount it, but cant even mark it active. just gets gray for half a second and then nothing


- tried to do a wipe via twrp as well, with no success


any ideas?

the last one is USB OTG, also showing 0MB - i actually tried flashing supersu through the usb as well, with no luck
i can see external_sd but there dont seem do be ANY contents

do you think it is the encryption? because everything shows 0MB in brackets

EDIT:

i just thought what the hell i try again to flash it via usb. havent changed anything but suddenly SUCCESS

appreciate your time thanks

So what did you do differently? If you can explain a bit more, I'll change/add it to the guide. Maybe as a second option or something...?

yes i am indeed rooted!
everything else, including internal storage was 0mb as well. usb otg was literally the only one.
i have not gone back into recovery since, but rebooted several times and also used root apps (adaway). everything seems to work great and the rest of the guide still counts!

in total, everything seems stable until now my goal is to not touch twrp anymore until android 8.1 will be released

The official 8.1 update with overwrite TWRP.
I am now working on a cm14.1 build. As im having to use a prebuikt kernel, this is as far as I can go.
As soon as I have a beta ROM I'll upload.

Don't suppose you could boot to recovery and just double check that everything is as it should be? Put my mind at ease, make sure it works for you, as it does for me...
