Charging when Off boots into recovery...

Works fine with the B380. Downloaded the latest version for Honor 7 (TWRP 3.0.2.0 Plank) via the TWRP Manager and flashed it with adb.
Just having 2 issues:
*first one was already mentioned a few times: Touch-Input isn't working all the time --> you just have to wait till the screen turns off, after turning it up again, it should work fine.
*i'm not quite sure if the second issue is related with TWRP but i do think so: when charging while the phone ist shut off, it automatically boots into TWRP recovery. I've googled around and found out, that this is related to TWRP, other recoveries doesn't have a bug like this. But since I didn't test it myself, I'm not quite sure if this bug isn't caused by e.g. the Unofficial CM13 for Honor 7 I'm running on. Does anyone else have this bug? Or does somebody know how to fix it? @paulobrien Do you know this issue?
Other than that, I'm pretty happy :)

The second one is present only in unofficial CM13. Was using TWRP with emui and never faced that issue.

Installed this and used fastboot to flash the twrp img on my Honor 7. Flashed just fine and I tried to reboot into recovery and it took me into the Huawei eRecovery and not TWRP, I searched online and saw that if you unplug the usb after it installs TWRP while in fastboot and power down + volume up into recovery will stop the phone from overwriting TWRP back to the eRecovery. I've tried multiple things onling, but nothing works. Also, before you ask; yes I do have unlocked my bootloader. I also tried the fastboot boot recovery.img method, but it said the command was denied. Can anyone help me?

Ask you guys if there is twrp for honor 7a, thanks

H7 does not allow booting into Recovery through "fastboot boot".....
To boot into TWRP you need to unplug H7 from USB first and than use POWER & VOL+
If the H7 is pluged in, the same keykombination brings up the eRecovery...

If you need more help on button combinations, visit the guid on https://forum.xda-developers.com/honor-7/general/honor-7-button-combinations-clarified-t3320467

I've been working on creating the basic device tree needed to get the latest TWRP built for our Honor 7s and most importantly, accepted as an official TWRP recovery.

Edit: We're now official! Download from the TWRP website.

Test updated version:
DOWNLOAD - twrp-3.0.2-0-plank-modaco-rc3.img*- MD5:*0dca92320f279de5a02fcc80284e03ee

I've just one question here! Is this recovery good enough to be used with Honor Play 7 (Chinese version of Honor 7S)? I'm asking this because I couldn't find any support base for this phone on XDA as yet.

Looking forward, cheers.
