Ok. That depends on what you did to your phone for those things to stop working.

Fingerprint sensor stops working when you unlock bootloader, gyroscope breaks when you mess with persist partition. The random shut down could be many things, like a bug or overheating.

Can you give me more information on what you have done with your phone?

Model type? rooted or not? have you flashed any mods? what are you doing when the phone shuts off etc?

Please use a translator to understand what im trying to ask. - you can write in your own language also, just add a translation too.

Hello, I updated my phone with a beta version of the firmware, then restored it using Red_Magic_5G_Unbrick_Tool_ (EU), and now I can not get updates via WIFI! Writes your device is root!
Help me fix it please!
Here's what i did, after i unbricked it was reverted to 3.12 firmware and got the same problem, and i just manually update it to 3.13 and after that for some reason i was able to update back to 8.12 via OTA and bank apps working.

If you follow my guide on the second post, you can install TWRP on any Android 10 rom for the Red Magic 5g/s. So any rom up to 7.15/8.12

You need a windows computer.
Your phone will be wiped.
You can relock your bootloader during fastboot steps, so before you flash twrp, you can relock your bootloader to hopefully restore your fingerprint.

Once you've installed twrp and root, you can update root then install the rest of your apps.

Gyroscope breaking like I said before could be a hardware fault, or your persist partition was corrupted.

You could try flashing the stock persist through fastboot, and wiping your device after to see if that fixes the issue.

But if after that its still broken, you probably have hardware fault.

My I Dea i will try installing Android 11 for redmagic 5S with twrp
Not worth it.

And updating wont change your persist partition. Then you'll be stuck on android 11 with the bugs i've posted on the first post.

Nubia will release a bugfix version soon. Its best to wait for the next update for android 11 if you want to update.

The unbrick tool does not flash the persist partition. You should find it in the unbrick tools temporary files and flash that seperately in fastboot and see if that fixes your problem.


Updating to Android 11 will not fix your problem.

    Try unbrick again.

    This will install android 10.

    Then install from recovery (using a OTG usb drive) version 7.15 of 8.12 depending on your region.

    Its possible the android 11 zip you have is corrupt.

    In my opinion the update is not good enough, some apps still dont work correctly, and the bugs reported on the first post are a hassle.

    Nubia is planning to release an update to fix the bugs reported last month. The average ETA we were given was June 10th. I personally would not hold my breath for that date, but at least we may get an update without the bugs anyway.

    Meaning it may be better for you to wait and see how this new update works out before trying again.

    Stay on android 10 on the latest update. Version 7.15 or 8.12 thats what im doing. Waiting fornthe fixed update.

    Unbrick and update to whichever region rom you need on android 10. Use a MD5 chexk tool to make sure the file you download is not corrupted before you try to install.

    Let me know if you have more issues.
    Update:
    Thank you, seems works finally! Have a nice day Patrick and you save my life! :D

    TWRP and root guide for 5S and 5G on Android 10 only - (these steps will NOT unlock your bootloader) - these steps use a bypass method to install a recovery without unlocking bootloader. the command below is to allow flashing of partitions. bootloader status is still locked during and after process is complete.

    Note. if you already have ADB and fastboot drivers installed, this folder will work as is. if not I put an installer in the folder too to install a mini adb fastboot setup. which needs windows driver signing turned off (windows 8-10) this can be done by going to advanced startup and choosing to boot without driver signing.

    1. Download zip file found at the end of this post

    2. Extract to root of C: drive

    3. open CMD prompt with admin privileges

    4. CD to the ADB folder you extracted. (CD = Change Directory)

    5. Connect your device in Fastboot mode (power off. hold volume down +Power until it vibrates. then release power but continue to hold volume down)

    6. Once in fastboot mode, with cable connected to the computer run these commands

    7. fastboot oem nubia_unlock NUBIA_NX659J (this allows you to flash the device partitions)

    8. fastboot flash recovery TWRP-xxx.img (xxx being the version number of the TWRP image you choose to install)

    9. fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta_skip.img

    10. reboot to recovery (from the fastboot menu) it should load TWRP

    11. if TWRP does not ask you to keep recovery from being over written, go to advanced and choose disable replace TWRP. to keep TWRP as your recovery, and stop the system from re writing the stock recovery.

    12. Reboot to system for the first time and complete the initial setup. this is to create the user space partitions data/media ( preferably do not make a pin or pattern at this stage)

    13. once in the rom, connect to PC and copy over the Magisk zip to the internal memory. then reboot holding Volume up

    14. once back into TWRP (if you created a pin during setup TWRP will ask you for your pin to access data) go into install and flash the Magisk.zip you moved in step 13 then reboot. once back into the rom, you will see a Magisk app, tap it and allow to update, the APK will install latest version of the manager.

    More NOTES.

    this must be done on a clean system. you need to wipe all data partitions to boot to system. re writing VBMETA causes encryption to break. until you reboot. so you lose everything Make a backup of your data partition on to your PC before doing anything.

    its also recommended to have an update.zip of your current rom (which you can download from the post above), incase you need to reinstall the rom after flashing the new recovery or VBmeta.

    OEM unlocking in the developer options is NOT needed. since you are not unlocking your bootloader. this step can be ignored.

    I'll update this tutorial with newer steps if needed.


    Thanks to those that created all these great tools.

    @wzsx150 - for their version of TWRP
    John Wu - for Magisk

    I'm working on a process that will update to Android 11, through TWRP and root, without losing data. Much like a stock update.

    I will update the thread once my tests are complete.

    I did a little bit of editing on the Stock kernel.

    Everything exactly the same as stock, except the clocks of the GPU and the memory timings of the ram.

    Tried to keep the speed / heat under control.

    I tested in the quebec winter -8'c and also in room temp 23'c

    These are my best scores, but i've seen the temps do well, Genshin impact tops out at 76 under heavy load.

    For stock kernel, with just a little basic tweaking, those scores are very impressive.

    I just updated to NA 857 last night and I regret it.

    All my apps on my desktop have been removed. They are still installed but I can no longer drag and set them on my desktop. Holding the power button to bring up the "Power off/Reset/Emergency" option now completely takes over the screen instead of appearing in a small box on the right side like it used to.
    It also installed some kind of web browser called NextWord Browser which randomly displays news pieces and ads, which I never asked for. Not only that, but I can't seem to permanently uninstall this app through regular means.

    I don't know if anything else is up with this new update, but I already don't like what this has done to my phone. I want to go back to the previous version and soon.
