What's this?

This is TeamWin Recovery Project for our ZUK Z2 / Lenovo Z2 Plus (z2_plus, z2131, z2132).

This is an official recovery support thread.

Known Issues
  • None

Requirements
  • Unlocked bootloader
  • Common sense and a Z2 :P


Downloads, changelogs, installation info
All of this info can be found at the official info page.
If you use fastboot to install TWRP, you may have to specify a vendor ID in the commandline, like so:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x2b4c flash recovery twrp.img
fastboot -i 0x2b4c reboot
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are some of the downloads on the download page much bigger than others? Which ones should I use?
I only recently became the maintainer for the official images, and I changed the sources in doing so. This means that I do not know why the images built by the previous maintainer weigh more. You should always use the latest one available.

Why are some of the downloads for z2 and others for z2_plus? Which ones should I use?
The previous maintainer used the z2 codename, whereas I am using z2_plus because it's the standard most devs are using nowadays. Again, you should always use the latest image available

Trouble restoring my backup
Hi varotone,
Hey I having some problems in restoring my backups made using the recovery, flashing seems to be fine but when I try to restore it fails and phone just restarts and starts to blink the led. But if you back to recovery and flash a new ROM it works fine.
I am using the latest version of twrp ,so just wanted to chk its just an issue with me or anyone else also facing this issue.

Haven't run into that issue. Can you try to get a log? /tmp/recovery.log is fine

flashed it, doesn't work for me



fastboot install succeeded as you can see on the screenshot, but when I boot with vol down + power, get to the black screen with options that boots up, i go to Recovery, click it and all that happens is my phone reboots, no TWRP

any ideas?

fastboot claims to work, but doesn't
Code:
philo@ZeroKnowledge ~/Downloads> adb reboot bootloader
philo@ZeroKnowledge ~/Downloads> fastboot -i 0x2b4c flash recovery twrp-3.1.1-0-z2_plus.img 
target reported max download size of 1610612736 bytes
sending 'recovery' (18372 KB)...
OKAY [  0.569s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.145s]
finished. total time: 0.714s
philo@ZeroKnowledge ~/Downloads> fastboot -i 0x2b4c reboot
rebooting...

finished. total time: 0.072s
It comes up with a menu which indicates that the bootloader is unlocked. Then when I select recovery as the option, the screen goes black and nothing happens until hold down the power button for a long time.
