Warning: To avoid bricking your device, NEVER write both boot and recovery in one session. ALWAYS write one partition, test, then write the other. This is why the tool will only write one partition at a time.
Warning: There are versions of TWRP for the Axon 7 that are known to erase your IMEI when doing a restore. Do NOT do a TWRP restore unless your are SURE that you have a good version of TWRP!
This tool will allow you to:
- Backup your boot and recovery partitions.
- Flash a boot or recovery image (including the signed TWRP image).
See following posts for operating system specific setup instructions.
Once your setup is complete, enter EDL mode:
1. Power off phone.
2. Hold both volume buttons.
3. Plug phone into computer.
4. For G models, you must "adb reboot edl" (see other threads).
axon7tool <mode> <partition(s)>
Note: The tool name will vary depending on your operating system.
<mode> is -r for read, -w for write.
For read mode, <partition> is one or more of gpt, boot, recovery. Files will be created as <partition>-backup.bin
For write mode, <partition> is boot or recovery. File will be read from <partition>.bin
To backup everything on Linux:
./axon7tool-1.5-linux -r gpt boot recovery
To write recovery on Win64:
Place file as recovery.bin
axon7tool-1.5-win64 -w recovery
