Looks like RR is not active anymore on this device so I checked for a replacement.
Wanted to flash the latest rom of this rom, got error 3004, saw that this is due to TWRP ...of course my TWRP was quite old ...downloaded the latest version for the manta device ...booted in recovery flashed the image as recovery partition and now my tablet is blocked on the screen with the little android bot complaining...
No way to get back into recovery mode...is there anything i can do/flash to be able to get my recovery back ?
I'm running macos on a macbook pro, would be grateful if any mac tools are available to flash whatever recovery to get the tablet back to live and get this rom installed.
Using mac Terminal and fastboot would be the easiest way.
Some setup required.
Download the newest TWRP image.
(The .img file. Not the img.tar file.
The .tar files are to be used with odin.)
TWRP for manta
Download platform tools (select for Mac)
SDK Platform Tools developer.android
How to boot into fastboot (bootloader) mode.
Flashing Devices source.android
macOS is based on BSD (darwin kernel). The default terminal is bash.
Setting it up on macOS is OT for this thread but, to get you back up and running.
Download and unzip platform-tools_r29.0.4-darwin.zip, you will now have a directory (folder) in Downloads called platform-tools
Boot manta into fastboot (bootloader) mode and connect to computer
Open Terminal app and type
platform-tools/fastboot erase recovery
platform-tools/fastboot reboot bootloader
platform-tools/fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.3.1-0-manta.img
Then use the volume keys to switch to Recovery Mode and press the power button to select.
The erase and reboot commands might not be needed in your case.
PM me if you need more help or configuring platform-tools fully on your mac.
