Thanks for this recovery, It looks amazing, I've tested it and so far everything works except mount system or vendor or things that needs to mount those partitions but it's a common issue with Android 10, also, you provide only an Image and not the zip file, tried to install that image as recovery ramdisk but it failed (new boot.img larger that boot partition).

Aside from that, it really impressed me and I like it a lot, thanks

Your url doesn't work - truncated. However, I did find a FAQ pdf on http://orangefox.tech

Also, thanks for your work! And remembering us lowly Pixel users.

You might want to post on the XL forum - got more folks over there.

So we need an already installed recovery to install this recovery... Can you make this independent?

You only need to "fastboot boot boot.img"

Yeah but there is a mistake on how to install this. There is no zip, it's the img file actually and we have to boot into fb first. This might be intentional but it's not newby friendly.

Is it possible to make this flashable ?

I don't think so, I think the recovery is too big to fit in the ramdisk.

Well, the img file of TWRP 3.3 is 1 MB bigger, so there must be some limitations that I'm not aware of.

Perhaps there is a way to boot this with a modified TWRP that could reboot to Orange Fox using aroma.

I asked some folks on the orangefox building telegram, and they said it is not possible for a .zip installer on pixel.
