Apologies if this is a stupid question but I've searched for info but had no luck. I formated my data and installed a lineage os rom but after setting up the device and installing apps etc and restoring my phones music, photos and zips ready to flash (I never set a pin/finger print etc) recovery can't see any files. Just the "fox" folder. I reboot into the rom and all my files are there. Any thoughts/ideas? Curtana/note 9s

Any ROMs built Using the Official LineageOS's Tree will have Decryption Issue because of FBEv2.
This is NOT an OrangeFox Issue

In other words to use LOS I have to use their recovery too... That's a shame, hopefully that changes in the future cause it's annoying not being able to simply flash files. Thanks for the info
I am not sure why you think that you can't flash files. LOS recovery and AOSP recovery don't decrypt either (they don't need to, in order to implement their limited functionality). There is nothing that LOS recovery can do that OrangeFox cannot do, other than their delta OTA updates.

In fact, you can flash anything that doesn't write to the data partition or the internal storage. And most flashable zips don't do any of that.

I haven't actually used Los recovery before but everyone always mentions flashing everything using fastboot and sideloading everything so assumed it wasn't similar to cwm, twrp or ofox in the sense of simplicity. I don't know of it was ofox only but I couldn't SEE any files in recovery let alone flash (note there were no files displayed) anything while running the last months Los rom which is why I thought I would ask here and according to the response up a few posts I would need to run their recovery.

Using LOS Recovery Won't make any difference. Both of the Recoveries Can't Decrypt your ROM

Is flashing this with lineageos supported? I'm getting the 'system has been destroyed' if I flash it and black screen if I 'fastboot boot orangefox.zip' even though it used to work on the same device.
I just reflashed a few things, nothing fancy, like my rom and changed recovery to los and it won't go back.

    There are some ROMs which requires wiping system, vendor partitions to flash them like Pixel experience. There's no such option in Orange Fox. What can I do to flash ROMs?
    It seems that you really want to flog to death this notion of wiping system. The answer is exactly the same answer that has been given to the several posts you have made about this issue. I will repeat it for the last time:
    1. There is no requirement to wipe system;
    2. You cannot wipe system, even if you wanted to
    3. All that is required for a clean flash is:
    - Flash ROM +
    - Wipe caches/dalvik +
    - Format data +
    - Boot to system
    4
    I really wish people would stop repeatedly asking the same question, in all sorts of different ways. I have already given the definitive explanation about how to flash any ROM.

    I will reproduce the answer - yet again.

    Any further question about how to flash any ROM will simply be ignored.
