THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE BRINGING ORANGEFOX RECOVERY FOR OUR DEVICE. YOU'RE AWESOME DEVELOPER!
I finally tested it in first time. I highly recommend it!
And a question, is this works on treble?

The OrangeFox Recovery is flashed successfully on J7 2016 (SM-J710FQ)

I have never heard of the OrangeFox Recovery Project but I might try it out since I appreciate all the development given into it and I generally like the overall design. I'm just a little scared that I might lose all my data.

EDIT: Decided to install it. Looks really nice. Great work developer. The only issue I have is that it says my ROM isn't Treble when it clearly is and that it spends like 10 seconds on the splash screen rather than like 3 seconds when I try to go into recovery. But overall I'd say that this recovery is very well made, has a beautiful and easy to navigate UI, tons of features like Magisk Manager and the App Manager which I know I'll look into at some point.

Great recovery. Loved the advanced UI and amazingly I can backup EFS partition which I previously couldn't do on TWRP. Its awesome that it can extract compressed files (useful for those who forgot to extract GSI before flashing lol) and it can edit text files because the recovery has nano (a CLI text editor that's popular on Linux). Lots of customizability which I wouldn't expect a recovery to have. And for those who wants to make sure no one picks up your phone and factory reset it for laughs, you can apply security for your recovery (password etc).

This recovery might take a little longer to boot as compared to other recoveries but its definitely worth trying.

Hi again. The OrangeFox is very beautiful recovery I've ever had. I have the some issues in this build.

Bugs:
- The OrangeFox recovery launching time is longer than TWRP (10-15 seconds on bootlogo, 6-8 seconds on recovery bootlogo)
- The Power Off button doesn't power off my device lol :p (It's just rebooting back)
- The "/vendor" partition isn't hidden in non-treble device. (It's hidden on TWRP. Idk why. I don't even using non-treble rom. Maybe the creator of OrangeFox's fault?)

That's all for now. Thank you dev for building this for j7 2016.

It is a very good recovery. It solved my issue of internal storage unable to mount on twrp.
It still need some improvements. Bit overall it is a good one. I m waiting for future updates.
