Requirements:
Unlocked Honor 7x : See this [But don't flash twrp from anywhere else before backing up your device. Use twrpimgmount_ramdisk for backing it up first.]

Download:
TWRP Complete Backup
TWRP Img mount not tested yet

Instructions:

Flash twrpimgmount_ramdisk.img through fastboot
Code:
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrpimgmount_ramdisk.img
Press and hole both volume + power on to boot to erecovery OR volume up + power on to boot to twrp (i don't know which combination is of which one) i suggest you to flash twrp to erecovery_ramdisk partition using twrp too.

Backup/restore and flash image functions are tested for system/vendor/product/version/cust/oeminfo/recovery/recovery2/boot rest of them are not tested by me but should work.

Note: It is suggested to make a complete backup in memory card before rooting your Honor 7x.

After backing up, flash TWRP Complete Backup Ramdisk

I was able to get twrp booted, but had issues backing up system & data

its mentioned elsewhere, but i didn't see mentioned here. this twrp is unable to read the /sdcard partition (internal storage), so you have to use a microsd card (external_sdcard).

My Process: (BND-L24 USA Honor 7x Oreo)
in bootloader:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrpimgmount_ramdisk.img
then reboot phone into recovery by holding both volume buttens + power
(i guess the ramdisk is loaded instead of the stock recovery)

once in twrp, i backed up the MANY partitions to my microsd card.
the backup failed for 2 partitions:
1) Data
Code:
createTarFork() process ended with ERROR: 255
2) System
failed at 87%, no error in the backup log, however the log was speckled with
Code:
unable to find partition for path '/system'
UPDATE: i was able to backup system using the file "complete_twrp_ramdisk.img" attached to this thread.

Other notes regarding this TWRP:
  • Computer doesn't see phone via USB
  • TWRP reports "no OS installed"
  • TWRP cannot read /sdcard (internal storage)

I look forward to trying future versions, and would be happy to help test things on my device if devs don't have this specific model.

Computer doesn't see phone via USB - Known bug
TWRP reports "no OS installed" - Intentional, it has to work like this.
TWRP cannot read /sdcard (internal storage) - Your internal sd is encrypted and this twrp has no decryption support

:)

one further note, using the "complete_twrp_ramdisk.img" TWRP was able to see the installed OS, and offered to install the TWRP app.

Hi, I'm glad to report that although the first recovery that is twrpimgmount_ramdisk.img failed to backup system as I got the same error message as above but I was able to flash some other partitions like kernel, recovery etc... I actually selected a bunch of them.
Anyway most importantly after flashing the complete_twrp_ramdisk.img, I was able to backup system successfully. I'm using the Indian variant BND AL10 MODEL. I hope this helps some one out there.

I have a dumb question: Now, that the system is backed up with twrp, if I mess up my phone ever, can I simply restore this system img and be able to boot back into the os? Do I need to install any other partitions? I don't care about data. Please let me know.

Hi, I flashed this complete_twrp_ramdisk.img and now I want to go back to stock recovery of oreo which is bnd_recovery_nocheck.img from the other post. I tried using adb and it fails. I tried using the this twrp but it shows a lot of partitions to choose from and I'm confused example: ramdisk recovery, recovery_vendor, recovery_ramdisk etc... there are sooooooo many. I tried recovery_vendor and also ramdisk but it doesn't work. Can you please tell me how to install the stock recovery?

Can someone tell me how to install stock recovery after installing the above complete_twrp_ramdisk.img as I'm unable to flash using adb. I tried "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" and also "fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk recovery.img" I tried flashing the BND_recovery_nocheck.img from the other post which is a stock one.
I also tried flashing it using this twrp to the partition recovery_ramdisk and gives the error saying "the size is larger than the device" Please someone help.

I have tried couple times to install new release

twrp_ramdisk_oreo_7-4-18.img
But I can only get to twrp splash screen.
OP change-log has no information about this new release, so maybe is still not ready.

telegram group has mention of this , but did not help Yet.

**EDIT**

It was suggested by DEV in telegram to just be patient and try again. This third time installed 4-7-2018 released version it loaded right into recovery, without any delay.

Don't know if it is coincidence or not but before I was on RRos ROM. and now I am back on EMUI 8

Well, the mess here you have gentlemen, nichrome you do not understand where the root for 7ku, where to 8ku, what tvrp to put for 8ki for everyday needs.

---------- Post added at 03:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:52 PM ----------

Which TWRP can I put in order to flush the root on the 8th oreo?

what are the 2 images with dates for? twrp_ramdisk_oreo_19-4-18.img and twrp_ramdisk_oreo_7-4-18.img?

i tried flashing both in twrp after using fastboot to flash the inistial ramdisk and neither one boot into recovery they get stuck at the twrp splash screen but the image labeled complete_twrp_ramdisk.img boots fine.

Afaik they are test builds (ports) of data decryption enabled twrp.

I had them working when on the Oreo beta but cannot get to work on RR or the new official Oreo.

    I've had way better compatibility (adb, full decrypt, mtp, etc) with twrp_p10_lite_0.3.img from this thread. I couldn't get any of the TWRP versions listed in this thread to work fully. 2 wouldn't boot and the other two lacked adb, mtp, and decrypt.

    3.2.1. Absolutely zero issues.

    ok i tried that second file, there is 4 file in that link he gave us, i put into the terminal for file a:

    sudo ./fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk twrp_ramdisk_oreo_19-4-18.img

    and i got stuck on the twrp boot screen, for that file a

    i download file b, and it doesnt even go into twrp, it gets stuck on "your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted screen"

    i tried file c, and it worked, i was able to go into twrp, but i got the same errors when i tried to doing a backup of all the partitions, error 225

    i tried the last file d, i was able to go into twrp, and make a backup but i got the same error, error 225


    does that mean i wasnt able to make a full backup?
    do i really have to click on ALL of those partitions?


    on the twrp website, it says i should only backup "system & data"

    i tried that clicking on system and data only , and i still got ERROR: 255
    this time i got 4 file instead of 2 in the backups folder

    data.f2fs.win000 866MB
    system.ext4.win000 1.61GB
    system.ext4.win001 0.99GB
    recovery.log 1.69MB




    should i just try to root it without making a backup?
    where is that magisk file..
    hmm

    the two different twrp(image, and complete) are because complete one cant copy the system.img correctly and image one cant flash things (like magisk) I beleive.

    neither of them can work with /data because of the encryption.

    But you can read all this in the thread. Also o last few pages you will find talk and links to different recovery that does work with /data encryption.
