Installation

From existing TWRP or OrangeFox recovery
1. Download the OrangeFox zip to your device
2. Reboot to TWRP-based Recovery
3. Install the OrangeFox zip
4. Reboot recovery

From stock unrooted
1. Unlock bootloader
2. Download OrangeFox Odin installer .tar to PC
3. Boot device into download mode, and connect to PC
4. Uncheck auto reboot in Odin
5. Flash the OrangeFox .tar file to the AP tab
6. When flashed, and you are ready, force reboot into recovery.
7. Download Encryption disabler, and transfer to device.
8. Flash Encryption disabler, FORMAT data, reboot recovery.
9. Download Magisk and transfer to device. Flash.
10. Boot up, first boot may hang. After 3min waiting, hard reboot and you should boot straight into initial setup.

** Don't reboot device before going through initial setup and connecting to the internet. This is needed for KG status to read normal. If you don't do this, you may find yourself in a prenormal state.

** If installing OrangeFox through Odin, you will be missing the Fox add-ons, which aren't essential. But if so desired, flashing the OrangeFox zip from existing custom recovery will install the necessary files for Fox add-ons.

Thanks for making an N9700 version.
Works great!!

Any chance you can get USB OTG to work?
Android detects my Sandisk Extreme, but TWRP does not.
Duh! Forgot to mount USB drive...now it works!

pretty cool, thanks. Theres a couple bugs: haptics dont work and the keyboard covers the input line in the terminal. Also, I don't know if this is intended for this recovery, but system apps are not shown in the app manager even though I have mounted system as rw. That would be really cool if they were.

Seems like this recovery has the potential to be a great tool for system-on-root modding. I'll keep for a little while, but not being able to use the terminal will end up being a deal breaker if not fixed. Why is it hidden away in menus too? Anyhow, know you didnt design it, thanks for the work in porting this!

Thanks, I'll take a look at those items. I haven't done much else since release, but I'll see if I can move the terminal to the front menus.

That would be awesome if you could figure those things out. No pressure of course, I appreciate what you've done so far.

I do think if fixed up a bit this has the potential to be a great tool for our phones. System on root devices need a robust solution for modifying system files, and this recovery seems like a great start to achieving that. Adding system app management would be the obvious first choice for a feature many people would appreciate
