I'm having a problem installing TWRP on my doogee X5, in order to root the device. I have tried to flash the recovery with sp flash tool, and every time I try, I can boot to the boot mode menu, select "recovery" and see the doogee logo for a while, then a black screen, then the doogee logo again, following into a normal boot.
This is the X5, not the X5 pro.

firmware on phone: "DOOGEE-X5-B-Android5.1-2016.03.18"
Any help?
PS: I don't want to use kingroot to root the phone, as I also want xposed.

Exactly the same goes here too. Probably there's not an updated TWRP for V18 which I am using. I have not the slightest idea who could help us.

Rooting Doogee X5 / TWRP install
Here's what worked for me, thought I'd share this.
Out of the box was on version 18 and wanted to root , so i blindly installed King Root which did work, i then installed Supeer SU me which changed the king root to super user. After that over a week i read that TWRP 3.0.2 worked for one person so using Flashify i flashed the recovery image , after changing it to recovery.img and it worked . Such luck right, i went on to read the forums as im in love with this device , Wakefield helpful was , you need to register but there are many roms and tools for mediatek 6580soc . Out of curiosity i downloaded some rar. File roms ACS different fish tools. The best to use if you've only got oneX5 is SP flash tool. Also look for mediatek vcom drivers which auto installs the correct drivers. There are easy to follow you tube videos fur flashing using SP Flash tool. The latest version had been updated for simplicity. the process basically is ( load .bin file in its respective area,( from Flash tool) and load scatter.txt in its box ( from rar. File) the whole interface will polemist populate plug go to format hit start plug in turned off phone without battery, it'll give red then yellow bar and a check, then unplug hi to firmware screen and choose to start dload only except bootloader, start , plug wait for coloured bars and check your done. i even had gotten errors due to a faulty dload and repeated the process till i got it. I understand that not all have the patience for this, therefore i suggest using flash tool of king root messes up though that's rare.

An alternative to supersu me is to root with king root then install twrp with flashify then you can uninstall / repack king root and flash Updateroot.Script available by someone on needrom. That includes super user and busy box. Then installxposed. Etc.

* Each process in the above proven tuturial has been obtained online from other sites not just xda. I've chosen 5.1 as an idealOS for me, I can't say the route to take fur Marshmallow.

This is for -b and non b only version 18, and 19. All others take your own chances but it's resilient chip so have fun.

I have a similar problem. Unlocking the boot loader works fine, but i can't seem to find a working twrp file for my phone.

I have an X5 pro (x5pro-android5.1-r17-2015.07.01). I tried different twrp recoverys from needrom and i can flash them to the device, but if i try to boot into recovery i only get the robot with the red warning triangle. Rest of the phone works fine, but i'd like to get a working custom recovery.

Can anyone help me?

My X5 is an old motherboard version android 5.1 V15-2015.11.02 and that was the last official fota update for me. Is there any ofgicial upgrade suitable for my model like android 6.0 ?

Yeah i noticed this site man but says you need to register first. And one more thing spft always detects scatter files as invalid or maybe not legal even from the official site of doogee. I use the spft from doogeemobile site.

I am using SP_Flash_Tool_exe_Linux_v5.1520.00.100 with ubuntu(linux) maybe try an other flashtool edition,registering needrom is simple just making username and make a password when you are registered take the inifix hot 2.6.0 for the x5 flash it and you have got also a TWRP from wich you can root or install also the .zip roms etc.
I mentioned the inifix hot2.6.0 because that was the one i had succes even with a bricked recovery caused by flashing a cwm recovery without rooting first.

Well i just want for sure make a backup of my current rom without wiping it. I guess the infinit will delete all. Plus i also want to install recovery having rooted it 1st which is easy i think on 5.1. I have the one with the old motherboard not the -b. To sum up i want to install the official updated rom V20 via sd (which i tried and didnt work) luckily it didnt brick or via spft which doesnt load scatter file says is not valid no matter if i use latest or older version of spft in order to flash it manually. Its risky to root and install a recovery by an apk without having my rom backed up 1st. And even with the spft i cant do that. I just want to fix my battery status. Thats all. I use xp pro os.
