After a long time of trying to get things right, i finally got things right.

So here it is:

TWRP RECOVERY 3.2.1-0 FOR THE MOTO X FORCE (KINZIE)

This is an actual port and not a recompile of a different version for another device.
It is not yet official but i intend to submit my device tree, so it gets official.
It is probably never going to be official, but i'll try and provide frequent updates.

Everything *should* work, as far as i was able to test.
I am not sure about encryption though, as i have not encrypted my device, nor do i intend to do so atm.
Encryption should be ok now. (TWRP team has put a lot of effort in this).
Encrypted partitions cannot be read atm.

This would probably also work for the Droid 2 Turbo, if someone finds a way to unlock the BL.

I will try to maintain TWRP for this device, fixes may take a while though as i am not having a lot of time to work on this.

Installation:

1. Unlock your device

2. Download the image

3. Power off the phone

4. Boot to fastboot (VOL DN + POWER)

5. plug your usb cable install via fastboot:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery TWRP_3.2.1-0_Kinzie.img
If you want to keep OTA Update ability you can also temporary boot to TWRP. You would have to repeat this step everytime you want to go to TWRP then:

Code:
fastboot boot TWRP_3.2.1-0_Kinzie.img


Download here:

Amazing, the most beautiful and wanted TWRP version! Tested and working perfectly! Using it as my recovery, not boot only.

Awesome! It's cool to have an actual port and to know that you will try to maintain it so we can have future updates .

I'm curious, though. What is the difference between this and clark recovery? Did you build it with the latest motorola kernel, which includes msm8994 support or make some BoardConfig changes? I mean, they share the same config and base kernel, at least, the basics that make TWRP work - wifi and other modules are a whole different story, but they are not needed for recovery.

To be honest, differences are marginal at this point, as of now we've got the fstabs by-name assignments there is almost no way of messing things up with partition assignments (which is kinda the no. 1 thing to do right in recovery). At the moment i am still using a prebuilt kernel and ramdisk i extracted from the device, because when i started building the device tree the kernel sources haven't been available. And when they finally were i decided to first fix the issues i already had, before introducing new ones. The whole graphics sub routines of TWRP (minuitwrp) recently had undergone a pretty big overhaul and so we've lost ability to flip screen on the way. I recently made a patch to fix this for overlay devices (which the kinzie is), and since then, TWRP is running fine on the native kinzie build. The overhaul also made the use of a custom graphics.c obsolete. (I suspect you had to use that?) I made the device tree mostly from scratch, only looking at similiarities at trees from hima and clark. (Hima has msm8994 too, clark has a different chipset as you know, but is a moto device).

You can have a look at it here. Please note that this is not absolute latest configuration (haven't uploaded it yet) and it still needs a little cleanup before submission. After that, i am going to throw in kernel sources from motorola and fetch the prebuilts necessary.

If you are interested in learning more you can contact me via PM.

Xadro, just to let you know that the OTG is not working yet. Tried several things but no good yet. If you need some one to test some workarounds just let me know.

I'll look into it as soon as I can. Might also be a general issue in twrp.

Thanks for this @Xadro . I just received my Moto X Force yesterday, it's great to see this available.

One thing I noticed is that the /sdcard/TWRP folder doesn't seem to be accessible (tried ES File Ex and Android terminal). Android Terminal displayed 'do not have permission' ls -al showed normal perms for the directory
