Why am I having tzdata not found probs - TWRP doesn't have correct time - either your 3.2.1-1 or the 3.2.3 or I assume any other.

Time is not correct so auto date on label, and time stamp on nandroids is not correct. setting with date -s doesn't hold because there's no tzdata to put it in.
Many thanks!

Something from someone "I've added tzdata to my recovery builds". Need to know how.

I don't thinks it's a bug can corrected by this way or per device, i have the same issue and after a extended time searching, the only concrete information is that it has several devices from several different brands that have been experiencing this problem, the issue is open on twrp's github(at least, the last time i checked), which means it's could be a "general problem" and stills has no concrete solution.

Anyone knows for what purpose is system image partition? I accidentally found that it don't need to be restored and rom work without it ?

Why do you ask here, and the one who answers guesses instead of using Google? ("Android System Image" for instance gives good results)

Hint: There is a fine explanation available. ;)

More or less it is enough for me now - I asked here because I had error during restore system image (phone just restared) - so I didn't restore it and all works I was suprised .... :D ... also it is chcecked as default part of backup on this twrp .

Hi everyone,

2 years ago i successfully rooted my phone. Now for some reason the root checker app says it is not.

Does anyone know why? Can i root it again without running the risk of loosing contacts,data or other files? or even briking it?

i now also have a moto z play, and would like to switch to an error-free custom rom without google.
My question - can I use the old twrp ( without problems?
(... i planed to use linageOS 15).

I have taken 3.1.1-1 (yes, working for 8.1, maybe because 15.1 is 32-bit) for flashing LOS 15.1 (32-bit arm, latest). Had Error 7 with the newest version. Maybe it's a little bit to old, but working :D

But which newest version I should use normally for this rom?

ju juu I entered to see how to root it and I find myself with 28 pages and 3 years of discussion, it seems that it is not so easy, my friends. Better not touch anything.

    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.

    Unlocked bootloader is required.

    Our device comes with forced encryption and, more important,
    verity which checks at every boot if /system partition has been changed or not.
    If /system has been changed, verity won't allow booting your device which means
    you can't flash anything unless you disable verity.

    To temporarily boot this recovery:
    fastboot boot twrp.img
    To permanently flash it:
    fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

    Disable Verity
    • Flash this kernel (only compatible with latest oreo build, OPNS27.76-12-22-9) through fastboot (fastboot flash boot boot-noverity.img) or TWRP (Install -> Install image -> Select Boot -> Swipe to install)
    • Verity is now disabled, you can flash Magisk or anything else
    • If you aren't going to root your device, you can use my patcher (that disables forced encryption as well) else Magisk/SuperSU will do this for you.
    • In order to definitely get rid of encryption, if you wish to, you'll have to erase userdata with fastboot

    Thanks to @vache we have working SDCard now (a new build is up). Meanwhile omni team pushed a fix for adb backup to 7.1 branch so that's another working feature!
    A new build based on the oreo kernel with improved encryption support for oreo is out. There also is a possible fix for the touchscreen issue, let me know if you still hit it.
    The first official build is out (\o/) but there isn't any difference with the latest unofficial I posted few days ago right now.

    Are there any drawbacks to be expected when using it in combination with Marshmallow or Nougat?
    I can't guarantee that encryption will work on Nougat (but it should), almost certainly it will not on Marshmallow

    It looks like touch screen issue is fixed ;) .... is there any way to make backup faster to adopted storage - it takes for me 772 sek , avg. speed 13 mb/sek - while to internal memory it takes 407 sek,speed 24mb/sek ? (11.3 gb of data with digest ON)
    Nothing that I can do but there is an option to skip digest generation during the backup, that will save some time but if for some reason the backup gets corrupted you will not be warned
    A new version with improved support for Nougat encryption and fixed F2FS is available, it took me a while since I had to upgrade the build environment to 7.1.1 (local manifest here if you need a minimal omni one).

    Also back in december I developed a patcher that disables verity and forced encryption. You don't really need it if you root your device though as these zips already disable verity and FE.
    I wanted to thank squid2 for helping me in building proper binaries to run in recovery, gladiac and Chainfire for some ideas I took from FED-Patcher and SuperSU.
