Thank you for this. I was able to boot the recovery and install magisk on my device. Is there any way to make the recovery permanent or do we have to fastboot the recovery every time?

Error flash

Hi,

I installed LineageOS but when I want to flash the "recovery", I am in error...
"target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes
sending 'recovery' (57720 KB)...
OKAY [ 1.281s]
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: No such partition.)
finished. total time: 1.284s"

Why ?

bootloader enter your imei it will give a key following all instructions precisely. it tells you the rxact command to use for unlocking the bootloader. after its unlocked, open your command prompt in your adb /fastboot folder. then adb reboot bootloader. after reboot phone will be blank screen. you have to download twrp 3.3.0.0 .img its the most updated. do that before the adb thing. then after adb thing, when you are booted into bootloader.....fastboot boot twrpxxxxx.img
this will boot into recovery. make sure you have magisk 19.zip doenloaded to your phone. then just flash magisk from the recovery, after reboot install magisk apk. there you go. sorry all of this is not in order. ive done it so many times im skipping ahead. i can give a better detailed and precise instructions if needed, litterally walk you thru it, if you need it. but the instructions provided by all the download sites are great. its easy peasy. if you need bettrr instructions youre more than welcome to get in contact with me.

sorry about that ****ty message, this goddamn site is retarded on mobile. im not going thru all that **** again but yes it can be rooted and its easy, if you need some clear instructions you can hit me up at the email i provided in that ****ty short bus post i left.

you can keep the stock rom fyi. and theres an updated android 9.0 pie stock rom floating around too. im using it, no problems. you have to use xperifirm and flashtool to flash it tho. its simple unless its your first time doing, after you do it once youll ask yourself why it seemed so hard to get to that point. also, fyi, this particular is almost brick proof not saying it cant be bricked because, i did, several times boot looped it, everything, **** right now i dont even have a stock recovery because of some errors i made learning how to do all of this, but its up and running, its not buggy, magisk works great, stock android 9.0 firmware, just no recovery, but good ole twrp works just fine when you boot it for recovery. great phone to learn how to do all of this on. like i said its almost brick proof.

thanks Luk1337 for your work.

A) I get a stuck boot on SONY white screen when trying to reboot after a boot to twrp using fastboot (swipe to allow modifications and nothing else). Fastboot boot to TWRP was after a clean installation of Android Pie.

B) I even made a TWRP backup of the Android Pie rom but restoring backup runs into same issue of stuck on SONY logo). (well if just a twrp boot to resulted in a stuck boot (as in A) rebooting after a twrp backup restore would not have a chance either but just mentioning)

I am guessing we need a disable verity to avoid this?

fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

Do we have a vbmeta.img for the XA2 Ultra? (from stock kernel) sorry if a noob question. Thanks.

Flash magisk or something, it'll disable verity.
Also we don't have vbmeta partition.

    Not yet. Thought I don't think it's worth to /install/ it anyway.

    You don't flash it.
