Hey guys,
I've begun this thread for all those who have devices which don't have a source code and as a result, no TWRP.
You can request a TWRP on this thread for those devices. Since these are not official builds, they won't be available on TWRP website, only here.
You need to post these things for getting a TWRP.
1. recovery.img of your device
2. Install DiskInfo from Play Store, enable show unmounted partitions and post screenshots of the app.
3. Install any root explorer and send screenshots of /dev, /dev/block directory and /dev/block/platform/whateverfoldersarehere/ directory
4. Screen resolution of your device (720x1280 for example)
After this, wait for a few days until I post your recovery in this Original Post.

While requesting for the first time, do not quote this post, just mention me by
Code:
@Augustoandro
It will help in keeping the thread clean.

Here are the already available 100% working and validated recoveries:

1.Micromax Canvas Juice 3+ a.k.a. Micromax Q394:
https://mega.nz/#!OF8USCJA!ZfoNcfVeg...Eo4-ZaTSGZasvE

2.Chuwi Hi8 Air (Ported by Kellwa):
Move to this thread:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...-twrp-t3875196

Below are the recoveries that haven't been tested or have bugs. Feel free to work on them and make them better. But notify me when you do so, so that I can provide the improved TWRP through this thread to others.

1. Archos 50B Neon:
https://mega.nz/#!WN9wCQYb!LF4SAuLrw...NRlD8-esc8fGnw

2. Gionee A1 Plus:
https://mega.nz/#!PV0SkAbb!egNFZEZYg...rNqemvdDOpPzDI

3. Honor 7C AUM-L41:
https://mega.nz/#!vV8mBCjL!m-adiDl95...QPwqdyUSczmZSE

4. Honor 7C LND-L29:
https://mega.nz/#!jM9kQKjB!KBvOKKkyq...MMFOhcxB0knEIg

Notes:
1. Archos 50B Neon has Reboot Menu issues.

2. Gionee A1 Plus hasn't been tested yet, please test it.

3. Honor 7C TWRPs have a bug due to which /data is encrypted by default.
Try editing /vendor/etc/recovery.fstab, remove the encryption flag next to /data

CHANGELOG:
1. Fixed external sdcard or usb-otg not detected issue. Both can be read and used to flash files available in them.
2. ADB sideload fixed. Though it still shows "Starting ADB Sideload feature" when the feature is already working. You can check whether it works by typing this command
Code:
adb devices
If it shows output such as
Code:
1234567890ABCDEF       sideload
then it means sideload is working.

All the recoveries that I support through this thread would be updated with every new version release of TWRP.

In case, you want to port a TWRP yourself, feel free to check out this guide:

Go into the Magisk thread, there are installation instructions for rooting using a patched boot.img
Flash the boot.img using fastboot.
Now, you have root on your device and can use any root explorer.

I requested for the things posted in the Original Post because many stock recovery.img have an incorrect recovery.fstab.
This happened in case of Micromax Q394, my own experience, resulting in OS Not Installed Error.
That's why I made those requests for screenshots.
Btw, did you check whether the TWRP you have is showing OS Not Installed error or not?
Just try rebooting to system to check that.

How did you reboot into system when touch was not working?
Did you go into the Reboot-> System button?
No other files are required other than the ones I mentioned.

I have your stock recovery.img, I can create a TWRP but don't expect it to work since you haven't provided all the files I asked for.
I looked at the way Hovatek tool works, if the stock recovery.img has an incorrect recovery.fstab, the TWRP ported using Hovatek tool would be faulty even if it boots up.
Therefore, please provide the mentioned screenshots.
