I think H7 does not allow booting live bootloaders. You have to install it.I can't use the "fastboot boot twrp-3.0.2-0-plank-modaco-rc3.img" command. Always results in a "Command not allowed" error. I used this with all my phones before to do a nandroid backup including the stock recovery. Why doesn't it work with the Honor 7? Bootloader is unlocked, drivers installed, adb and fastboot work... I tried with other versions of twrp, same result.
Any idea what could be the issue? Or does this just not work with this phone?
fastboot boot twrp-modaco-rc3.img
OKAY [ 0.594s]
FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)
finished. total time: 0.606s
PS: I don't want to try and flash the recovery before I pulled a full stock backup. But maybe that will fail, too, anyway. Hoping for some input if other have the same issue.
I wanted to do the same: do not install TWRP, just boot it to install SuperSU and do the normal operations.
