I am trying to install twrp 3.14.1 on my s7 g935f.
After doing the procedures to install via odin, I restarted the phone and it did not start in recovery mode, and now when starting the device it is only on a red screen.
I tried to reinstall the stock rom, but without success, how do I proceed?
I've tried unsuccessfully to flash TWRP to my factory open SM-G935F in preparation for flashing the lineage Android 10 rom.
I did post a question here https://forum.xda-developers.com/s7-edge/help/boot-problem-successful-twrp-flash-t4175699 but haven't had any replies.
Currently I can 'successfully' flash TWRP and boot into it. I have tried flashing SuperSU and the no-verity-opt but I get a 'Failed to mount '/data' (Invalid argument}' message plus a load of red lines before the flash starts & on reboot I get taken to a 'Verification failed' screen saying 'Unable to restart your device. The integrity verification has failed. You need to reset your device to factory default settings. This will erase all your data'.
Download mode before reflashing stock rom reads:
Download Speed: Fast
Product Name: SM-G935F
Current Binary: Custom
System Status: Official
FRP Lock: Off
Secure Download: Enabled
Warranty Void: 1 (0x030c)
SWREV: B:8 K:6 S:7
Fortunately, I've been able to reflash the stock rom via Odin each time (now done 3 times) and restored the phone to working with all data.
Is there a way of sorting the verification without a reset as I want to make a NAND backup 1st and if not will resetting sort out the verification issue?
Yes. Because for those of us who are trying to do our bit for the environment and try not to be materialistic and so keep our phones for as long as possible, these "how-to"s are vital reminders of how to do things should we need to revert, maybe after a rebuild or something goes very wrong.
I got that too but it was after flashing supersu/customrom/gapps.
Hi I am having the same problem. I am using TWRP 3.5.1_9.0 and have installed lineage 17.1. Everything is fine but when I encrypt the phone and boot into recovery TWRP is not able to mount the encrypted data partition. This was not an issue for me with older TWRP versions. Did you by chance find a solution to this problem?
I use the one from https://eu.dl.twrp.me/hero2lte/. That seems to be official and up-to-date, and works with encryption.
