ota is not automatic, could install manually but everytime needs to install Vbmeta and magisk along with the update zip else it gives corrupted boot/recovery message. I am not sure if the script present in orangefox for not overwriting recovery with an ota update is even functional.

Could someone give tips if its possible to have the orangefox recovery be peristant over instaling ota without installing vbmeta everytime?

That's how it works. How do you expect something to decrypt encrypted data without unlocking it. Also if you are using A11 ROMS use Pattern lock only. Currently A11 ROMS data can't be decrypted using pin/password in custom recoveries.

After magisk upgrade I Lost Orange recovery. Now when i try ti boot recovery mode smartphone reboot in normale mode. Any solution?
Maybe re-installing it?
Reboot in fastboot (pressing the power button and one of the sound button, up or down, I never remember which one is recovery and which one is fastboot).
Then fastboot flash recovery path_to_recovery

OrangeFox does not compatible with multi-user, while the latest TWRP does. TWRP can decrypt all user's data when recovery starting up, but OrangeFox can only decrypt User 0's data.
So, after I created more than one users in the system, OrangeFox cannot backup my data partition, but TWRP can.

It's time to update OrangeFox now...

So... I can't get OrangeFox to work. Running CN version.

Steps I've taken:
I currently have TWRP installed, from this thread : https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...ficial-twrp-for-realme-x2-pro-stable.3997879/ which is working.
Then I go to:
WIPE > data/cache/dalvik
I then use "ADB push OrangeFox.zip /sdcard/OrangeFox.zip" to get the file onto TWRP.
Install > OrangeFox.zip
After auto-reboot, it fails to load into recovery. It stays in bootloader.
I've tried fastboot -w afterwards, but no luck.

    OrangeFox will be back soon, mostly likely official.

    While waiting for official you can test new R11 build, links updated.
    So what needs to be done to have a working FP sensor? But it's broken even without root?

    I know I could simply flash it from twrp and try but, except for OTG working, are there any particular reasons to use this instead of twrp?

    I've read that OrangeFox is based on twrp, but offers a better support to Treble than twrp.
    Having also magisk/app manager, flashlight(if anyone would ever use it in recovery), password change. Just try it and check yourself.
    Sold phone, won't be supporting this anymore.

    Admins please lock this thread.
    It's a issue with vbmeta. You have to flash vbmeta via fastboot with disable flags:

    Hi @Jerry08! I've tried that, many times, but no luck. I get the "fastboot.exe: unknown option -- disable-verity" error.

    I've tried to download all short of adb/fastboot versions, I've installed the latest android studio, minimal adb, etc., but I can't find a way to get a fastboot that works.

    I'm sure that my phone is seen after typing fastboot devices. I'm open my powershell window on the folder that has the files.

    Can you please help? I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Thanks! : )

    [/COLOR @Jerry08, I think I get it to work:

    C:\vbmeta>fastboot devices
    513a895e fastboot

    C:\vbmeta>fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    Rewriting vbmeta struct at offset: 0
    Sending 'vbmeta' (0 KB) OKAY [ 0.008s]
    Writing 'vbmeta' OKAY [ 0.002s]
    Finished. Total time: 0.031s

    After that, It keeps rebooting to recovery.

    How can I format and install everything from scratch?

    Here's what happened.

    Yesterday, I tried to reboot to TWRP but, for some reason I can think off, I couldn't. I thought to try oragefox. When I was installing oragefox, and since I got the fastboot error, I maybe installed vbmeta and then the recovery - or I installed it without vbmeta, can't be sure now. After that, it kept rebooting to recovery. After a while, since I could'n fix it, I eraser caches, system and data and tried to flash the rom from scratch. No luck, I can't pass the reboot to recovery. I switch back to twrp, oragefox sometime got a full black screen and only the flash worked by vol up and power, and it was difficult o restart the phone.

    Thanks! : )

    What can I do to get my phone back?

    Did you wipe or format data(option where you type "yes")? The best you can do now is to format data(option where you type "yes") and try boot to os. And if it does not help, than follow Updating colorOS via Custom Recovery and as last step format data(option where you type "yes").

    Now for the RUI users.
    There's still a lot issues i face in rui. So BEWARE! Like today I updated Magisk Canary to latest and got bootloop, couldn't boot to recovery and data partition got ****ed up. I had to flash ofox via fastboot and format data to get it back working.
