Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

8. Choose the recoveryimgfilename.img
9. Swipe to install


Tips:
If you alread have a twrp flashed you can only flash the new installer zip or the new installation method to update your TWRP (remember to flash again magisk or your system will not boot).
If you have some problems with backup, like 255 error or something similar please check this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-6/how-to/255-error-twrp-backup-restore-999-t3801632
For the Bacups use always "system_image" and "vendor_image" instead of "system" and "vendor".

sorry for my bad English..
so... if I want to stay in the stock rom and install TWRP, the only way is to root with magisk?
and after that the stock ROM rooted with magisk will be stable to daily use?

Hello thanks for the TWRP recovery port. It works great!
Now, a few days after I flashed it. Motorola pushed a firmware or security update . I didn't install it yet but I would like to. I think I have to go back to stock recovery in order to install the update. Might you have a guide on how to do this? I already have the stock rom downloaded but I don't know how to get the stock recovery

Hello,

I've got a Moto G8 Plus which I rooted using Magisk after unlocking the bootloader. It works just fine as it is, but I would like to install TWRP so I can have a backup of it. However, I'm afraid of installing TWRP and breaking something or losing the root.

Can I flash this version of TWRP over a Moto G8 Plus already rooted with Magisk without losing root or breaking Magisk or something else?

Hi there,

Thanks for your efforts puling together a TWRP for our phones!

I've got a question because I'm not quite clear about your response to the previous question about the security update. I've been using the stock recovery, rooted with Magisk and went through the whole process of accepting the security update and then re-rooted etc.

Will I wind up F'ing up my phone if I go to install your TWRP since I've already accepted the security update? Or would I be better off just compiling TWRP on my own ( it'll be my first foray into that area ) taking that route instead?

Any and all opinions welcome

did not work for my phone, Moto G8 Power purchased 4/17/2020 fully unlocked bootloader, no root, attempted to boot to img, failed to boot.

sorry im doing a lot of research and looking, i basically accidentally soft bricked my phone, my wife and i have the exact same phone, and i cant seem to pull the factory images from it, nor can i make the various versions of OEM recovery images or boot loaders function on the phone.

maybe im just doing something wrong. pardon the typos.

I have played a little with Moto G8 Plus (XT2019-1). And i'm not worried about brick it. Have done a few times, but always recovered with blankflash.. After blankflash it will start bootloader, and then i can flash stock firmware. I found Stock FW and also blankflash on lolinet. I prefer using Fastboot for flashing. Don't need TWRP for flashing. Have locked, and Unlocked bootloader many times..
If needed, i can make a description on how to use blankflash as it can be hard to get started..
Check lolinet for stock FW and blankflash.. You need to know code name for your phone..

Allright, I installed successfully TWRP (install to ramdisk) and Magisk, rooted phone is fine etc, but when I boot into recovery again touch does not work and I am stuck in bootloop into recovery until I flash both again. Any hints?
