It's a cool little device, and Unihertz seems to be making things easy for the users. Hoping to get TWRP on mine at some point.

Jelly Pro Stock Boot, Stock Recovery & TWRP
I take ZERO credit for any of this. I just received my Jelly Pro and am reposting information I found useful to get TWRP & root. I take no responsibility if you bork your device.

Enable Developer Options (Settings,About phone,click Build number until you see 'You are now a developer')

Go back to Settings, scroll down to the bottom and you'll see a new ‘Developer Options’ entry right above ‘About phone’

Enable OEM unlocking
Enable USB debugging
I also disable animations, just a preference, but not necessary

Make sure your usb drivers and adb/fastboot is set up on your computer

From terminal:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock

fastboot flash recovery twrp_jelly_pro.img
fastboot reboot

(hold volume-up and power to go into recovery)
****if something went wrong and you get a "command not found" message, click volume-up & power a few times to go into stock recovery, then do a factory reset and try again)

****when going into twrp, DO NOT allow modifications

In TWRP, go to ADB Sideload and swipe to start
From term: adb sideload
Back in TWRP, go ahead and reboot

should have TWRP recovery and root

hopefully we'll start seeing some ROM's for this little guy....

1. Stock boot:!UbZASJTI!weBJa4uu9...gqPJ7O5UBjDJAQ
2. Stock Recovery:!9SoTVDbY!dZI7XYYSq...KTqDCzy-46Dsd0
3. Twrp recovery:!0WICAZwD!cUSG82h1S...fAl9MrWeClnRBs
4. Latest Supersu flashable zip:

I successfully flashed twrp and supersu, but when I reboot, it just goes right back to twrp, and asks for a pattern to decrypt data... Not sure what I might have done wrong. I was able to reset things by flashing stock boot and recovery via fastboot. (as described at

I tried again (fastboot flash twrp, sideload supersu) and this time it worked! Just wanted to leave all this here in case anyone else runs into similar problems. Lovely having root again. Can't wait for Lineage to make its appearance!

User "vineethrp" helped me with a similar issue. He is the one that came up with the TWRP recovery and dumped the boot and recovery images. Here are the instructions on post 22:

The issue, he suspects, is dm-verity. DO NOT modify system when you boot into TWRP and click on "Keep Read Only". I was able to root and it is booting again.
