Hi - I recently tried to boot from Slot B, and it didn't go well. My OP7P appeared to be boot-looped from Slot B, with a very slow "circling electron" animation. I thought Slot A and Slot B pretty much mirrored each other.

Is there anything I should do to make both Slot A and Slot B bootable?

Thanks,

¿GJ?

Thanks, @ghost323 - I installed mauronofrio's TWRP from above, but I'm not seeing any difference.

One thing that I maybe should mention is that when I boot into Recovery Mode after swapping to Slot B, I don't get prompted for my device encryption password, and nothing is mounted by TWRP. I expect that is why I am going into a bootloop.

Did you read the thread carefully? At least some pages?
There is a description of what to do.
I thought about it a year ago. In the end I decided against it.
You should also look at the basics of a / b devices. Many of your questions are answered there.
Reading something into these topics doesn't hurt ;-)
