OrangeFox R10.0_2 Stable released
Downloads:
1. OrangeFox download site: https://files.orangefox.tech/OrangeFox-Stable/lavender/
2. SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ora...iles/lavender/

Notes:
1. The UI for R10.x is very different from that of any other recovery. All the expected features are there, but you need to look around and familiarize yourself with the new interface.
* A very good place to start is by reading the README.md file here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ora...iles/lavender/.
* I very strongly recommend reading the README.md file before using the recovery, and, most certainly, before asking any questions.

2. MIUI incremental OTA updates are not supported. If you want to update MIUI, you need to download and flash a full MIUI ROM.

3. Kernel: https://github.com/rama982/android_k...aomi_lavender/

4. Always leave "Disable DM-Verity" and "Disable Forced Encryption" unticked.

5. Backup and restore - see post number 3 below. Do not try to backup/restore anything without first reading it.

6. If you are returning to MIUI from a custom ROM, you must format your data partition before flashing MIUI. Then bootup MIUI and let it encrypt the data partition again, before doing anything else.

7. Similarly, if you are returning from MIUI to a custom ROM, you must first format your data partition, then flash the full custom ROM, boot the ROM, let it encrypt the data partition, reboot to recovery (and if you have a backup of your data partition, you can now restore your data backup).

8. If you are going to report any problems, you must provide full and complete details of the problems, and what led to those problems, and you must also post the recovery log.

9. If you experience a situation where you have set a PIN, but the recovery asks for a password (or vice versa, etc), then you must ask your ROM devs to fix their ROM by applying this patch. This is not a recovery issue, so please do not ask us to "fix" it. Alternatively, you can always open a terminal in the recovery (or via "adb shell") and run "twrp decrypt password".

Creating and Restoring backups
Backing up and restoring can be very problematic if not done properly. Since you will be relying on the backups, this needs to be done with great care. So, I am devoting a separate post to this topic.

Here, I will explain what works for me (your mileage may vary). But, first of all, read this: https://twrp.me/faq/whattobackup.html (and note especially the recommendations concerning "system" versus "system_image", and "vendor" versus "vendor_image").

1. In my opinion, only your data partition should be backed up via a Recovery. While this may seem a bit unusual, you really should always keep a copy of your full ROM's zip installer.

By keeping a copy of your ROM's zip installer, restoring the ROM would be a simple matter of formatting data, clean-flashing the ROM, booting up the newly flashed ROM (to make sure that it actually boots, and to let it encrypt the storage in its own way), and then rebooting to recovery mode. This would give you a working device, and a fresh copy of:
  • Boot
  • System
  • Vendor
Then you only need restore the backed up data, and you have your system again.

2. For full backups in recovery mode (if you must), the safest option would normally consist of:
  • Boot
  • System_Image
  • Vendor_image
  • Data
  • Internal storage

3. Do not depend entirely on a nandroid (ie, Recovery) backup of your internal storage (ie, your user data, photos, etc). It is wise to have copies in the cloud, and/or on your PC.

4. Do not depend entirely on a nandroid (ie, Recovery) backup of your data partition. It is wise to let your ROM backup your settings and apps data to the cloud (eg, google drive), or use an app to do the same. This provides a second line of defence. The reason for this advice is the dreaded "extractTarFork() error 255" which can sometimes (and randomly) occur when backing up, or (more devastatingly) when restoring the /data partition. Nandroid backups of the /data partition are potentially unreliable, and that is just the way it is.

5. Always take a backup of your user data every time you want to flash something (anything - ROM, recovery, mods, OTA updates, or whatever else). Particularly, with a device like lavender (with very flaky encryption), flashing or updating anything at all can potentially lead to your needing to format your data partition to get rid of broken encryption (this is especially the case with regard to moving from any ROM to any other ROM). Ignore this advice at your own peril.

6. Watch this space for more stuff to be added in the future.
