Sorry I should have been more clear.
Besides the official recovery, I cannot boot into any TWRP recovery, neither from TWRP.me or from here.
Regardless of whether I boot directly into it, or flash it and select it from the fastboot bootloader, it just goes straight into the Qualcomm recovery mode with the blue LED, and I'm wondering if I'm missing anything / any steps.
You are not wrong anywhere. I too have faced this, and tbvh, I am using CodeworkX or BluSpark only for one of these various reasons. Unless TWRP from CodeworkX or BluSpark are not working, I will stick so that these smaller issues do not turn big.A strange thing happened to me: few days ago I updated TWRP to 3.4.0 version without any problem (I'm with Derpfest dumpling). Yesterday I tried to flash first rom upgrade with new TWRP, flashing went fine but after that I couldn't start the phone because it went back to recovery. I tried to recover backup made just before upgrading and after recover it went in fastboot mode. No way to restart the phone. After various attemps and when I started to be afraid of not finding a solution (I thought it was a rom related problem), last TWRP upgrade came to my mind, I restored previous 3.3.1 version and upgrade went fine and phone could boot again. I don't know why this happened and I also don't know why 3.4.0 recovery always asked for my password even if I'm decrypted. Where am I wrong?
Actually within the same version. As said by others too,only 3.3.X works. Ruddy XDA, shows other pages post commented. Anyways TG is another problem. XDA is now more like last resort for most developers..
OnePlus5 on Official OOS 10 ROM (clean flash, rooted, latest Magisk) with this TWRP 3.4.0 version.
-I set a Pin OR password in Android . Reboot to Recovery. I type in password at TWRP screen when prompted. It fails! Why?
-I reboot phone. I type in password to boot Android. I go to settings and REMOVE pin/password entirely. Then I reboot to recovery and TWRP just boots up fine....as it should.
So what is going on here.....why is TWRP not accepting my pin/password I set? I tried doing this process multiple times, same result.
Any help welcome! Thanks
Are you on OOS? If so first flash CodwworkX, and then after setting pin pwd etc do decrypt data from CX recovery. After you are successful 2-3 times flash BluSpark .115 or MF’s 3.3.1X. It will work.Tried your 3.3.1 = same result
Tried blu spark 3.4.0 = same result
Tried blu spark 3.3.1 = same result
And just to give more info on the failure
The TWRP prompt screen says "Enter Password for User ". Then when I enter the password/pin....it goes to a quick log screen and says
"Attempting to decrypt FBE for user 0 . . ."
"failed to decrypt user 0"
After that, it just spits me back on the TWRP password prompt screen. I CAN press "cancel" button....and it takes me to the "Keep System Read Only?" prompt screen....the one that has the bottom slider to "Swipe to Allow Modifications".
Any further ideas?
Link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ch...rkx-signed-forcedecrypt-dumpling.img/downloadCould you give link to CodwworkX you are referring to? Just wanna make sure we're talking about what I think we are talking about.
Decrypt Data from CX recovery? DO you mean CS Recovery will accept my pin pwd when prompted for it? Or are you talking about completely running the phone unencrypted......cuz doesn't that wipe/format? Unless I am misunderstanding....maybe you can explain that further.
