FAQ and Known bugs of TWRP:

  • If you are planning to switch to a custom ROM, and are currently on OOS/H2OS, format /data, switch slot, reboot to TWRP and then sideload/flash the ROM + installer.
  • It's better to flash ROM + TWRP installer, if you want to keep your TWRP after flashing a ROM.
  • Don't format /data, after a flashing a ROM, before the first reboot.
  • It takes around 50s to actually boot into TWRP.

Ideal way to flash:
  • For OOS to Custom ROM - Format /data, switch slot, reboot to TWRP, sideload/flash ROM + installer, reboot to TWRP, flash Magisk/Gapps. Reboot to system.
  • For Custom to Custom ROM - Format /data. Flash ROM + installer, reboot to TWRP, flash Magisk/Gapps. Reboot to system.
  • For updating a custom ROM - Flash ROM + installer, reboot to TWRP, flash Magisk/Gapps. Reboot to system
  • For custom ROM to OOS - Format /data. Flash ROM + installer, reboot to TWRP, flash Magisk. Reboot to system.

PS: After formatting /data, until the first time the device is booted to system, the files you send to phone via MTP (USB) will be at /data/media, not at /sdcard

PS2: If, for some reason, you cannot send files to phone after formatting /data and rebooting to TWRP, press vol +, vol - and power button simultaneously.

PS3: Factory reset WILL NOT wipe internal storage.
Why do I need to flash Magisk? Also how to flash Magisk? I'm currently stuck without an OS and I'm trying to go back to OOS...

Sorry, it wasn't me who originally asked. I currently have a pin set. When I boot into TWRP it does not ask me for a pin though, it just boots directly into twrp. However, if I select "install" for example, there are no files found on my internal sdcard or in storage.i can access those areas, there just nothing there. I can't provide screenshots.

Edit: I should also note that this is probably only my issue because it's an A12 custom Rom. I saw someone post that it worked so I thought I'd give it a try.

Nothing shows up under my /sdcard either (A11) but that's just a minor inconvenience. Navigate out to /data/media/0/ and everything is there, including zips I adb pushed to /sdcard/.

Not sure why sdcard shows empty. Could be a mount issue or something(??).

Thanks for release , and keeping updated.

I've always wondered if it's possible to boot recovery while running android using FKM, and other flashing apps ?
Unless they specifically have the ability to choose reboot targets (system, recovery, bootloader), then the answer is No as they'll reboot system (just like Magisk does).
You can either enable Settings>System>Developer options>Advanced reboot in OOS, or use a terminal command.
I use Termux as my terminal and it has a widget capability. I've set my widget up as shown in the top RHS of the screenshot.

Does anyone have the most recent version of twrp that works on the 9r? I believe it was the 20210705 build. The download link in the OP only lists versions after this.

Or does anyone know how to get one of the other versions to work on the 9r

Hi, I'd like to install Carbon rom and instruction says:
"You should start off with the latest OxygenOS stable build on both slots and then proceed to flash Carbon."
TWRP instruction: "
For Custom to Custom ROM - Format /data. Flash ROM + installer, reboot to TWRP, flash Magisk/Gapps. Reboot to system."
Now I'm on LineageOS. Can I safely flash the Carbon rom with TWRP or should I go back to stock then...?

I guess you can flash Carbon ROM with TWRP.
If it will not work you can go back to Stock and do it that way.

A couple of questions if you don't mind.

So I've unlocked my bootloader, rooted, Oxygen OS currently updated to the newest stable build. And now I've installed TWRP using magisk.
Been out of the rooting game for a minute. Probably since nexus 4.
Is it worth going to a custom ROM + gapps?
And would I use TWRP to create a backup .zip file?
If I have to format data before flash. Wouldn't I lose my .zip backup?
I use to use titanium back in the day. So I'm just curious how the new school works. Lol.

Titanium Backup is an application backup solution. TWRP is a system backup solution.
TWRP doesn't produce zip files.
If you format data you lose everything stored on the phone. So you will need to backup to an external device (PC, USB) all your backups and installation files and ... everything on your internal storage that you want to keep.
TWRP let's you sideload installation zips (you use adb sideload <file name> so they don't have to be on the phone itself.

Introduction:

Team Win Recovery Project ou TWRP en abrégé, est une récupération personnalisée conçue dans un souci de facilité d'utilisation et de personnalisation. Nous sommes partis de zéro en prenant la récupération AOSP et en la chargeant avec les options de récupération standard, puis nous avons ajouté beaucoup de nos propres fonctionnalités. C'est une interface utilisateur entièrement tactile, plus de bascule de volume ou de boutons d'alimentation à écraser. L'interface graphique est également entièrement pilotée par XML et entièrement thématique. Vous pouvez modifier à peu près tous les aspects de l'apparence.

Principales caractéristiques:

Écran tactile piloté avec de vrais boutons et glisser pour faire défiler
Interface graphique basée sur XML qui permet une personnalisation complète de la véritable mise en page !
Les paramètres sont enregistrés sur la carte SD et persistent lors des redémarrages
Possibilité de choisir les partitions à sauvegarder et celles à restaurer
Possibilité de choisir de compresser les sauvegardes maintenant avec pigz (prise en charge du processeur multicœur pour des temps de compression plus rapides)
Sur le clavier de l'écran
Sélection facile du stockage interne/externe

En plus des nouvelles fonctionnalités ci-dessus, TWRP propose un moteur de script qui permet à une application d'envoyer des commandes à la récupération pour que la récupération s'exécute au démarrage. Nous appelons ce moteur de script OpenRecoveryScript. Ce moteur sera mis à profit immédiatement dans l'application GooManager. GooManager pourra installer automatiquement des récupérations pour la plupart des appareils pris en charge. L'application vous permettra également de choisir d'installer plusieurs zips à partir d'Android, d'effacer et d'exécuter une sauvegarde.

Nous recherchons d'autres développeurs, créateurs de thèmes et mainteneurs d'appareils talentueux s'ils souhaitent participer à un projet open source gratuit.

Code source:

GitHub - https://github.com/TeamWin/android_bootable_recovery

Instance de Gerrit - http://gerrit.twrp.me

Si vous avez créé votre propre version TWRP pour un appareil non pris en charge, veuillez nous en informer. Nous pourrions ajouter votre version à la liste des versions non officielles. Gardez à l'esprit que nous travaillons dur pour ajouter plus d'appareils et nous pouvons ajouter votre appareil à notre liste de construction officielle plus tard.


Bonjour, c'est TWRP, pour Oneplus 8T

Installation:
# Pour le démarrer temporairement
démarrage rapide <twrp_file_name>.img

# Puisque 8T/9R a une partition de récupération séparée, vous pouvez flasher la récupération avec
récupération flash fastboot <twrp_file_name>.img

Mise à jour vers une version plus récente :
Flashez simplement le dernier zip du programme d'installation TWRP de TWRP

OU

Flashez l'img depuis TWRP/fastboot


FAQ/Know Bugs sont donnés dans le post #2

Steps for backing up and restoring data in TWRP (Huge thanks to @BillGoss )

TL;DR for data backup on custom ROMs:

  1. Backup /data (copy the backup folder to PC if you will format /data).
  2. Flash the ROM and boot it once to system.
  3. Restore /data (copy the backup folder back from PC if you formatted in step 1) and boot into system.
  4. If you find any issues like missing navigation bar or blank screen or something, just do a normal reboot again to system.

System Backup and Restore
The "system" partitions on the OnePlus 8T are:
  • Boot
  • DTBO
  • Super which contains the logical system, system_ext, odm, product, and vendor partitions
Just backup and restore these partitions.
Do NOT backup/restore any of the logical partitions individually.


Data Backup
  1. Make sure USB debugging is enabled
  2. You do NOT need to remove your password

In TWRP
  1. Backup: Select only the Data partition.
  2. Reboot System

Restore
Remove the current password before starting the restore process by Settings>Security & Lock Screen>Screen lock: Select Swipe (if prompted tap on "Yes, remove")
If you don't do this, the system will not reboot properly after restoring.

This will also remove your fingerprint data and your lockscreen (encryption) password (you won't be prompted for a password in TWRP or when you restart the system)

In TWRP
  1. Wipe>Factory Reset
  2. Reboot System (this will rebuild the data partition)

Back in TWRP
  1. Restore: Select the backup you want to restore
  2. Remove the SIM card. If you don't do this the system won't boot properly.
  3. Reboot system, making sure the phone is not connected to a PC

Notes:
  1. At this point the phone will take longer than usual to boot - that's normal
  2. You will be presented with a blank screen
    • Connect the phone to a PC. You should be able to see the phone using adb devices
    • Disconnect the phone from the PC
  3. Hold the Power button down and select Restart

In System
  1. Settings>Security & Lock Screen>Screen lock: set your password
  2. Insert the SIM card
Note: Your fingerprints will have been restored because the backup was taken with the password set.
Hello
I noticed you had great experience with TWRP.
I just installed it in version 3.6 on my device.
I then made a full backup under TWRP of all the proposed settings.
Can you help me to configure the safest way TWRP to do a "Nandroid Backup" and also certain parameters to perform a restore if necessary?
Awaiting your information and help,
Best regards,

Jean-Noel

    Hello fellow 8T users: It's the end of the road for me, being the TWRP maintainer for 8T. I no longer possess 8T with me and have got a new device.

    Reasons for this were basically just one:- Personal life got in the way, hard.

    Thank you everyone for all the support you did, especially @BillGoss , @osm0sis and @bigbiff

    If anyone else wanna step up and continue maintaining this device, please feel free to ping me or @bigbiff

    Ciao!


    To the mods: Please keep this thread open, until a new maintainer is found.

    A minor update (twrp-3.6.2_11-0) is now available: https://twrp.me/oneplus/oneplus8t.html
    Changes: see https://twrp.me/site/update/2022/06/01/twrp-3.6.2-released.html
    And, no, this update doesn't boot up on OOS 12, even if you remove encryption (tested on KB2005 C.20).

    If adb works you can try to input your passcode/pin/password through adb shell
    If you are lucky that might unlock your phone and decrypt data

    If that work you can at least use adb to backup your internal storage

    Introduction:

    Team Win Recovery Project or TWRP for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It's a fully touch driven user interface , no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

    Key Features:

    Touchscreen driven with real buttons and drag-to-scroll
    XML-based GUI that allows full customization of the layout true theming!
    Settings are saved to the sdcard and persist through reboots
    Ability to choose which partitions to back up and which to restore
    Ability to choose to compress backups now with pigz (multi-core processor support for faster compression times)
    Onscreen keyboard
    Easy selection of internal/external storage

    In addition to the above new features, TWRP features a scripting engine that allows an app to send commands to the recovery for the recovery to perform during startup. We call this scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript. This engine will be put to use immediately in the GooManager app. GooManager will be able to install recoveries automatically for most supported devices. The app will also let you choose to install multiple zips from within Android, wipe, and run a backup.

    We are looking for other talented developers, themers, and device maintainers if they are interested in helping with a free, open source project.

    Source Code:

    GitHub - https://github.com/TeamWin/android_bootable_recovery

    Gerrit Instance - http://gerrit.twrp.me

    If you have made your own TWRP build for an unsupported device, please let us know. We might add your build to the list of unofficial builds. Bear in mind that we are working hard to add more devices and we may add your device to our official build list later.


    Hello, this is TWRP, for Oneplus 8T

    Installation:
    # To temporarily boot it
    fastboot boot <twrp_file_name>.img

    # Since 8T/9R has a separate recovery partition, you can flash the recovery with
    fastboot flash recovery <twrp_file_name>.img

    Updating to a newer build:
    Simply flash the latest TWRP installer zip from TWRP

    OR

    Flash the img from TWRP/fastboot

    Thank you everyone for all the support you did, especially @BillGoss , @osm0sis and @bigbiff

    If anyone else wanna step up and continue maintaining this device, please feel free to ping me or @bigbiff

    Ciao!


    To the mods: Please keep this thread open, until a new maintainer is found.
