Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.



About

This port of TWRP is built alongside the LineageOS ROM using the same kernel. It's the recommended recovery if you want to use the LineageOS ROM (or another ROM based on it).

Features
  • TWRP 3.3.1 (built in LineageOS 16.0 tree)
  • F2FS
  • USB OTG
  • Full disk encryption
Installation
  1. Install ADB and Fastboot on your PC. There are guides available online for this, for example on the LineageOS wiki.
  2. Make sure you are running Android Lollipop (5.0).
  3. You need an unlocked bootloader. TWRP 3.3.1 requires me176c-bootstrap 0.3.0, included in me176c-boot 0.3.0. (The old "Intel" bootloader is no longer supported.)
  4. Boot into Fastboot mode: Press Volume Down + Power to turn the tablet on and select Fastboot mode in the menu.
  5. Flash the downloaded TWRP recovery image using Fastboot:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery twrp-recovery-3.3.1-20190609-UNOFFICIAL-me176c.img
Usage

Before you start flashing ROMs I recommend making a backup of your system, especially of the Factory and Vendor Data partition. These tend to get corrupted for unknown reasons, so it's good to have a backup.

New features
  • Support for full disk encryption
  • Fixed USB mass storage mode for file transfer
Known problems
  • MTP support is disabled. However, given that file transfers were already broken before I don’t consider this as a regression. You can use ADB to transfer files.

No, the ME181C never got the Lollipop (and as such, the UEFI) update, so you're stuck with the stock ROM and tethered TWRP unfortunately.

Quick question: can this image be safely flashed with the 'Flashify' app? Thought I'd ask before I attempted it. 😉

Well, you still need the unlocked bootloader, which is probably something that app cannot do. Otherwise, I see no reason why it wouldn't work for flashing new recovery images. It's really hard to break this tablet completely so you can just try it.

Unfortunately every ROM I try to flash with this TWRP version results in error signal 7. Tried removing the assert command of the roms I try to flash (lineage and the custom rom) but no success.
I do have model K013
