    Use OOS updater if you are on the international version. If you are TMobile, you will have to wait on their slow updates. ---------- Post added at 12:10 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:09 AM ---------- Can be found on play store, btw.

    Post twrp wipe results in fastboot loop

    You really only need to wipe data. Everything else is rewritten upon flashing a full OOS zip, which is why you need to reflash twrp in that session before trying to boot or you lose twrp.

    Post TWRP Restore issue

    Can you boot TWRP still? If so, restore Data ONLY, flash full OOS zip version the backup is from, twrp installer, reboot twrp, flash full OOS zip again, TWRP installer, reboot twrp again, flash magisk and other mods you have/had/want. If you can't access twrp, use fastboot ROM to restore your phone.

    Your data would be wiped unlocking the bootloader, as I'm sure you know. Your are correct about Netflix, but there are a million free streaming apps to choose from.

    You need to wipe your data. Use Swift to backup apps, messages and call logs. Google will do it's best to restore settings upon setup. Your problem is almost guaranteed to be in data. If you need that data, I would recommend going back to whatever version of pie you were on before. Swift won't...

    ROMs are built for a specific device and can be ported and maintained. There are a few that you need to flash in TWRP as per their specific instructions and a few that you can flash in magisk. You need to research and all the information you need is usually on XDA with each ROM in the...

    Post Running two different ROMS

    It doesn't work like that. The whole point of a/b is for seamless updates. If there is an error with the new slot, it reverts back to the old slot on boot. You didn't follow the flash instructions for the ROM. Flash it once, flash TWRP, reboot recovery, flash again and TWRP, reboot recovery.

    Post Thinking of Switching to Oneplus 7 Pro from ios, need guidance.

    It's smooth like butter. OnePlus usually updates 1 month behind google but they update it once a month with the open betas (pretty stable for daily driver) been using OnePlus since 2k17 with the 3t,the 6 and now the 7 pro. They'll update it for 3 years. Even after that, custom ROMs will be going...

    Repairs are not free. A return can be made within 15 days of receiving the device. If you would like to repair the frame yourself, it will cost roughly $98-120 USD for the entire assembly, since it will damage the display if you try to remove everything yourself. You need specialized tools to do...

    I couldn't tell you that. I'm sure the app exists, since it is on an Android box. Perhaps a rooted shield, you could rip out the APK from the system and install it on another device.

    Post Does TWRP Backup/Restore work for OP6 9.0.3 Stock? Fails/Bricks every time for me.

    The a/b partition is a failsafe that also makes updates easier overall. OOS is a solid ROM. I would recommend xXxNoLimits. That's what I use along with Smurfkernel. It's all preference.

    Post Does TWRP Backup/Restore work for OP6 9.0.3 Stock? Fails/Bricks every time for me.

    The best way to flip between ROMs is to take a data backup specifically for each ROM, but install the ROM as per instructions every time. The noverity just maintains decrypt after you decrypt your data partition. Restore your data any time while in recovery, and it'll be fine as long as it's...

    Post Does TWRP Backup/Restore work for OP6 9.0.3 Stock? Fails/Bricks every time for me.

    I only backup data, but I'm also decrypt, which helps. There really isn't a simple flip flop like you used to do. I backup data, then install OOS zip, flash TWRP, reboot recovery, flash noverity (for decrypt), magisk then kernel and reboot and all is the same as it was before.

    Post Does TWRP Backup/Restore work for OP6 9.0.3 Stock? Fails/Bricks every time for me.

    Just backup data partition and flash your OOS zip when you want to return to OOS in TWRP. After you flash it, restore data and you'll be golden.

    Post Updated to 9.0.2 and now I want to go back

    Download the ROM version you want, flash it in TWRP, flash TWRP, reboot recovery, flash magisk, kernel etc. You don't have to wipe data, but know that if there are any issues, data will be the cause of them since there was an Android version upgrade.

    Post How do I restore my OOS backup?

    Backup data partition only in TWRP to restore later. If you want to go back to stock, just flash full OOS zip in TWRP, flash TWRP zip, reboot recovery, flash magisk, kernel and other mods, then restore oos data and reboot.

    Post Bootloader warning message frozen?

    It's completely independent of data partition. Make sure to get latest bluespark TWRP zip.
