@DarthJabba9 How's the Android 12 ROM's compatibility, can they be decrypted yet?
Nope. Android 12 encryption is quite problematic, and there is much work to do before recoveries can decrypt it properly. There is a hack that means that one or two devices can now be decrypted (only if there is no password/PIN) - but vayu is not one of them.

Isn't this the first official recovery for vayu? Wonder why there aren't more views and comments.

With this Recovery I have the same problem with official TWRP that I have no access to internal storage after flashing. So I'm not able to copy a .zip to it. Is there any solution?

Installed this on my Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro through the official TWRP and then through itself, after
Code:
data
was formatted.

The UI and UX in general is really amazing. Finally a recovery made for humans, which is easy to use and actually comfortable. It's actually NOT a chore to use this recovery! :eek:

Great job, thank you very much. :)

If you are using Android 12, you should switch to Android 11, if you want an easier experience with recoveries.

Additionally, you generally should use a microSD for such stuff, instead of Internal Storage, because the Internal Storage may be wiped, anytime. While the microSD (External Storage) only needs to be wiped, if you really want to.

Yeah, did that but I had no access anyways.
the moment you format the data, you will lose the partition until you boot into a working system
if you want to continue install things, you could use adb sideload to do so

I also switched from TWRP to Orangefox and am quite happy so far. Installation on Poco X3 Pro was a breeze.

I installed LineageOS official as they are one of a few who have nightly builts / OTA.

However, I´m not sure if I have to set anything in Orangefox in order for the OTA´s to work. I´ve found the guide on the wiki page (How do I set up block-based incremental OTA for custom ROMs in OrangeFox Recovery?)

however I´m unsure if the LOS-ROM is such a "block-based" Rom I must admit that I don´t know what "block-based" incremental means , sorry :(

Thank you for any help

"Block-based" = "Delta" (ie, incremental updates that only patch the existing system in the areas that need to be updated, rather than full ROM updates). An example is the incremental MIUI OTA updates. Lineage OTA updates are usually full ROM updates.

Hey uh, I just got the MIUI13 based on A12 update notification, but haven't downloaded it yet. If I update, will something happen? Or will OF just lose access to my storage until it can get the decryption sorted out?

    not really, was curious coz some dude posted twrp with android 12 encryption and i thought it was impossible. so i came here to ask for your opinion since you're a recognized dev.

    sorry if my question came out as asking for ETA.
    Fair enough. Yes, it is possible. But there is a very good reason why twrp-12.1 is not yet official. If someone decides to jump the gun and release work-in-progress code, that is their own lookout.
