Sorry, can't seem to flash this. Currently running 2.8.5.0.

I tried using the TWRP manager, but it only finds 2.8.5.0 as latest.

I downloaded 2.8.6.0 but when I try to fastboot flash it I get the following error:
Code:
target reported max download size of 1826418688 bytes
sending 'recovery' (5 KB)...
OKAY [  0.147s]
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: image error! (BootMagic check fail))
finished. total time: 0.157s

Looking for some help on this.

I am running official GPE 5.1 was rooted and had TWRP 2.8.6.0 installed. I decided to encrypt the device today. Everything as far as the device is working just splendid. However when attempting to boot in to recovery (TWRP) it asks me for my pattern. I enter it, and it says pattern is incorrect and fails to decrypt the data partition. Any ideas or suggestions? I feel as if I need to tread lightly to not lock myself out of the device. I don't care about losing data on the device, just would like to be able to have TWRP and be encrypted.

Hi all,
3 days ago i went to stock nandrod beckup for ota upadate, and after i want to return to custom rom flashing i both wit the official twrp and captains_throwbacks edition i have e: unable to recreate and-sec folder, i also have, when wanting to make factory reset whipe, formating cash partition failed. and sonmetimes i have a error that "your device is not rooted" especially when whiping... Im currently runnung SD 7.0 rom which installs despite of errors.

What have i done to make this errors, and what should i do to fix them? I tried to get help in several topics, but no bodz heleped, as i already did what helper sugested. Please anybody? When i try fo install permanent root it said failed but rooted any way. Before going back to stock with stock recovery i had no problems at all.

one thing i didnt try is to go back to stcock lock boot loader and go with installing RUU, and then whole proces of unlocking again...

---------- Post added at 05:25 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:15 PM ----------

is and-sec folder kernel related, if so flasjhing boot.img and instaling kernel would fix it?

Running CM12 with TWRP 2.8.6.0, I am able to decrypt with my PIN. Now that CM has moved to 12.1, decryption no longer works.

Is decryption supposed to work with CM 12.1, or is this a known limitation?

I had this problem when I first flashed CM 12 also. I ended up finding a one off 2.8.2.0 build by @Captain_Throwback on theMikMik site that worked.

CM 12.1 M8 on T-Mobile

Thanks

Well, I know it's a limitation now, since CM12.1 introduced this: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_htc_m8/commit/3e26d6cd896fc61a365c65247feddb778ead45a2

I had the same issue with CPTB version. I'm scared to change Roms now because my back ups don't restore lol. I'm far from a recovery ace so I was hoping it wasn't just me. I was going to play around a bit but it became a nag having to set everything up after a full wipe again and again. I've been itching to try out a different ROM so I may be able to post up a log for you if I do so.

You try disabling MD5 verification?

Is the inclusion of this keystore a minor nuisance that can be overcome. Or is this a major setback for TWRP decryption on CM 12.1?

If this is something you have time to look into, I can certainly help you test it out if needed.

Thanks
I honestly don't know. I looked into it as much as I plan to today with zero success. I am now resuming my "break."

Maybe @Dees_Troy wool know how to fix it when he gets a chance.

Perhaps try go ruu method and restore your phone from there, will it go in ruu mode?

    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.

    -Backups will now include adopted storage keys (Dees_Troy)
    -Fixed an adb restore issue (bigbiff)

    -Fixed line wrapping in the GUI terminal (_that)
    -Updated TWRP source code to AOSP 7.1.2 (Dees_Troy)

    -adb backup to stream a backup directly to or from your PC, see documentation here: https://github.com/omnirom/android_bootable_recovery/commit/ce8f83c48d200106ff61ad530c863b15c16949d9 (bigbiff)
    -tweak MTP startup routines (mdmower)

    -improve automatic determination of TW_THEME (mdmower)
    -minimal getcap and setcap support (_that)
    -try mounting both ext4 and f2fs during decrypt (jcadduono and Dees_Troy)
    -shut off backlight with power key (mdmower)
    -timeout during FDE decrypt (Dees_Troy and nkk71)
    -support for FBE decrypt and backing up and restoring FBE policies (Dees_Troy)

    -numerous bugfixes and improvements by too many people to mention

    CHANGELOG for 3.0.2-0:

    -Fix a bug with the input box that affected masked inputs (passwords). This fixes decrypt of full device encryption on devices that support decrypt. This bug also impacts encrypted backups. Users are highly encouraged to stop using 3.0.1 if you use encrypted backups or if you need decrypt of data in TWRP.
    -Add Greek translation to some builds.

    CHANGELOG for 3.0.1-0:

    -support new CM 13.0 pattern encryption (sultanqasim)
    -fix slow flashing issue due to modprobe (present on only some devices) (#twrp)
    -libtar updated to latest upstream and fixes (jcadduono)

    -translation updates - added Italian, Czech and Polish and significant updates to Dutch
    -progress bar improvements - progress bar updates during image flashing and better tracks progress during file system backups (tar) (Dees_Troy)
    -fix input box text display (Dees_Troy)
    -reboot option after zip install complete (bigbiff)
    -other mostly invisible bug fixes and improvements

    CHANGELOG for 3.0.0-0:

    -Completely new theme - Much more modern and much nicer looking (by z31s1g)
    -True Terminal Emulator - Includes arrow keys, tab and tab completion, etc. (by _that)
    -Language translation - It won’t be perfect and especially some languages that require large font files like Chinese & Japanese won’t be availble on most devices. Also some languages may only be partially translated at this time. Feel free to submit more translations to OmniROM’s Gerrit. (mostly by Dees_Troy)
    -Flashing of sparse images - On select devices you will be able to flash some parts of factory images via the TWRP GUI (by HashBang173)
    -Adopted storage support for select devices - TWRP can now decrypt adopted storage partitions from Marshmallow
    -Reworked graphics to bring us more up to date with AOSP - includes support for adf and drm graphics (by Dees_Troy)
    -SuperSU prompt will no longer display if a Marshmallow ROM is installed
    -Update exfat, exfat fuse, dosfstools (by mdmower)
    -Update AOSP base to 6.0
    -A huge laundry list of other minor fixes and tweaks

    WARNING: This is our first release in a long time. We have a lot of new and somewhat aggressive changes in this new release. The changes to the graphics back-end may cause some devices to not boot up properly or have other display-related issues. If you are not in a position to reflash an older build of TWRP, then wait until you are or at least wait until others have tried the new version for your specific device. You don’t want to end up with a non-working recovery and have to wait several hours or days to get to a computer to be able to fix it.

    Notes for themers: In addition to the udpated theme, we have introduced a theme version variable to the TWRP theme system. If the theme version does not match the version that TWRP expects, TWRP will reject the custom theme and load its stock theme. This change will ensure that people who update TWRP without updating their theme will still have a workable recovery. We have removed libjpeg support. The stock theme was only using a jpeg image for the splash / curtain. This change means that any custom themes will no longer be able to use jpeg images. It also means that tools used to repack recovery images with a different curtain / splash will need to be updated to use the new method.

    Version number notes: For a while we’ve been using a 4 digit version number and reserved the 4th digit for device-specific updates. For instance, we find and fix a device-specific issue like decryption of data on Nexus 5, we would release that as a 2.8.7.1. After a while, some people would start asking where 2.8.7.1 was for other devices. So, going forward we have decided to change the numbering scheme to 3.0.0-2, etc. Our hope is that this version numbering scheme will more clearly identify that the 4th digit does not indicate a version change for the code base.

    We need your help! The bulk of TWRP work is done by 3 people on a volunteer basis. We have pushed most of our device files to our github and we have a gerrit instance. If you have the ability, please help us maintain our official devices and/or add your device to our official device list. Thanks in advance!

    1) Install the TWRP app from the Play Store or grab the apk from our website
    2) Open the app, agree to the terms, and enable root access
    3) Select TWRP Flash
    4) Search for your device and select the version you wish to download
    5) Once the download is complete, select the file (it's usually in your downloads folder) and then Flash Recovery
    OR:
    Most devices can be updated quickly and easily within TWRP if you already have version 2.8.4.0 or higher installed
    1) Download the latest version from our website on your device
    2) Reboot to TWRP
    3) Hit Install and tap the "Images..." button in the lower right

    BUGS:
    If you have found a bug, please consider posting it to our github issues log. It's pretty much impossible for us to keep up with the more than 40 threads that we have for the devices that we "directly" support. If you have a significant problem that cannot be answered in this thread, your best bet is to PM me directly, contact us via our website, or find us in our IRC channel below. If you see someone that's struggling, feel free to point it out to us. We need your help to help us keep track of all of our devices! Thanks!

    Haven't had an update in here for a while.

    Hopefully with the next official version of TWRP, all decryption methods (yes, this includes stock Sense) will be supported! @nkk71 is still putting the finishing touches on the patch, and it has to be reviewed by the TWRP team, but if all goes well, the support will be included. I'm not sure how many people are still using stock Sense on this device, but I figure it'll be nice to have the support anyway :).

    TWRP 3.0.0.0 for the M8 is up and can be found here!
