Hi guys,

I made the TWRP from TeamWin official sources for Huawei Nova2 . You can download the img and flash it from fastboot.

Bootloader unlocked required!

Installation:
Unlock bootloader (skip if you have already unlocked it)
Reboot into fastboot mode
Flash using
Code:
HTML:
fastboot flash recovery cofface_pic_al00_recovery_en.img
Reboot

Download:
AndroidFileHost

Bugs:
When device is encrypted you can't see the files into recovery
Let me know if there are others

if u feel that this work has helped u OR u think that the work i put into making this is worthy of donations, then click on the following link for buying me some coffee/beer/etc:fingers-crossed:

Unfortunately It is not working!
After flashing your file there is still the Huawei EMUI Bootloader and no TWRP. Bootloader was unlocked before. Fastboot was working fine.
Any idea?

Problem with Google GAPPS

Hi,

Thank you for your tuto and your ROM :eek:
I have bought my nova 2 in china.
Do you know how to install GAPPS. I have tried different version (stock, pico,.. ) but it's no use.
Do you know if I have to change the region first ?
Is it ok with your ROM ? :confused:

Regards

Not working

Hello,

TWRP ist not working for me, I still have the EMUI bootloader after flash and reboot.
Boot into TWRP Recovery ("fastboot boot cofface_pic_al00_recovery_en.img") is aborted with:
"FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)"

Is there anything I've done wrong?

Thx!

Success

Works very well, Thanks !

But ... while playing with it I lost the stock ROM for my Huawei Nova 2.

Since there is no download source available, could anybody share a stock ROM backup so I could restore using Twrp ?

Thanks !

My Nova 2 (PIC-LX9C432) automatically encrypts the disk after the first run, and then TWRP is unable to read /data partition nor do nandroid backups as a result. Can someone guide on how to disable encryption or get TWRP to decrypt data.

I read elsewhere that newer versions of TWRP are able to decrypt if you set a password / screen lock.

WARNING!!!! DO NOT FLASH THIS RECOVERY

Ideally cofface should remove this thread as flashing this recovery causes harm and no good. This TWRP port does not detect nor decrypt encryption on the 'data' partition and hence you will not be able to root your device nor take a nandroid backup.

What's worse, you will loose your recovery partition and will not be able to flash any other stock Nova 2 firmware updates.

If you have not yet flashed recovery and have the stock, please do a backup of your stock recovery and upload for the benefit of those who have lost it because of this recovery. See this thread...

Perhaps you could get some tips from nova (1) thread there we had the same problems. But so long we have a working twrp with backup possibility.
