TWRP for the OnePlus 5T with File Based Encryption support. Everything is working as expected! Unlock your device with fastboot oem unlock and then fastboot flash the recovery. The stock rom WILL reset your recovery on boot!

Not working / issues
Restoring data partition from backups will lead to boot issues if FBE-encrypted. It's not a TWRP issue but rather a side effect on how FBE works.

Waiting for official one. There must be a issue which takes time to fix. Never saw TWRP team need a so long time period between device release to TWRP release.

Finally an official TWRP comes out. That was the only thing I was waiting for. I just now need to find the time to root the phone...

Just to understand this correctly... We will have issues restoring data partitions if FBE is enabled? Since FBE was introduced to Android in 7.0, this means we would have to be decrypted for any restore operations to work? Is that only for this version? I swear I saw others restoring data without issues in TWRP as long as they removed their Fingerprint.

Thanks for your work, regardless.

It worked for me if PIN was used exclusively. There still are some ways for the restore to go wrong, so I left the warning.

Dont use it for now!


5T users are advised to stay on TWRP by ibe or bluspark as official twrp has issues with data restore, I have tested restore on ibe and bluspark and both work fine for now. Looking at the past track of OnePlus devices official for dumpling would also not be maintained and further updated so it's best to stay on unofficial for now which would be frequently maintained and updated.

Thanks to @FuNkWizard for his tests and heads up.

For some reason USB otg is not recognized when I'm on official 3.2.0 TWRP. Bluspark doesn't have this problem. Any advices?

Tested /data restore using Bluspark: works just fine.
Tested /data restore using Official 3.2.x: works just fine.

But, ymmv, so if BS version is safer/better: use that one :cool:

:good:

    Updated to 3.2.0. Enjoy!


    Also, this is now official: https://twrp.me/oneplus/oneplus5t.html

    Official will be updated and maintained with proper, non hacked together support. To do that, everything must be tested and understood before throwing things and seeing what sticks.

    USB OTG currently isn’t working due to the kernel not sending power. I’m continuing to investigate the best solution, wether it be a kernel fix to always enable it or to use the built in functionality.

    As for the theme, please don’t ask here. You can easily install any theme you wish through the built in functionality. Ask the creator of whatever theme to make the proper zip file.

    This is due to the ID in the usb init. There was no reason to change it since it is working.

    Restores work on both the official and blue spark versions. the warning is there so that users are aware their data can be lost.

    Finally, this is not the place to tell users what to use and what not to. This is a development thread that I’m welcoming specific support questions in. The choice of which build to use is ultimately up to the user; please do not debate builds etc. support issues are the only thing that should be posted in this thread. Create a thread in general for anything else.

    OTG and DT2W are coming to the next build of TWRP. Stay tuned to the TWRP app for new IMG
