Happy new year everyone!

Quick question. I am on Dr. Ketan's Oreo ROM and currently have twrp 3.2.1.2 installed. If I install the latest version provided by the op, do I still have to flash the no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.0.zip since my custom ROM is rooted and unlocked? Or do I simply flash the latest twrp and I am good to go?

Thank you in advance

According to the install instructions (2 methods), u definitely fall within d 2nd method(I.e already on custom rom & rooted) - read and follow it.

However, if I were u, I'll do a clean install, without re-flashing ...verity..6 (since u already have OEM unlocked- beside there's OEM lock safeguard in aroma: make sure to check it regardless). I just did exactly that yesterday (starting with flashing TWRP via Odin- i.e using method 1 partially), despite being on Dr. Ketan pie rom sept 2019 version already. U must ensure u make nand backup of current rom & also your files with smart switch & also samsung cloud, as well as Google backup & sync b4 proceeding. In addition, I always check efs & modem backup when doing nand backup (default is unchecked), so if anything goes wrong, I can go back.

Thanks! I updated it via TWRP.

Greetings everyone. I just created an account here to express the utter hatred I have of whoever created TWRP for the exynos note 8.

NOWHERE in the installation instructions NOR any of the linked articles states that you MUST wipe your data partition to install this.

So me, being a complete dumbass rushed into TWRP and forgot to backup all my data, since I wanted to use TWRP to root my phone and install titanium backup. When I installed TWRP, I couldn't mount the data partition and I started to panic, and when I rebooted my phone, "Verification failed"

It's all gone.

My photos and files, including financial documents, and photos of my recently passed grandmother. Gone forever.

I just wanted to root my phone to back it up but instead I had all of my phone's data vaporized.

I will never touch TWRP or custom roms AGAIN for as long as I live, I swear to god.​

Thanks for listening to my rant. :crying:

I know it's really frustrating and it's really hard when you lose important data but... It was your fault, man.
BTW, if you haven't formatted your data partition, I think you haven't lost it. Just install stock firmware via Odin (without wiping anything) and it should be there.

Flashing was OK until the no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.1.zip file, this ends with Errort: 1 (after Unpacking the installer)

any ideas how to proceed?

do I have to flash this zip or is it possible to go on falshing custom ROM?

    Official TWRP 3.3.1-* For Galaxy Note8 Exynos
    Only for exynos variants - N950F (Single SIM: Europe, Australia); N950FD (Global Dual SIM: Europe, LATAM, Brazil; Australia); N950N (South Korea)
    Disclaimer
    I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
    Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this recovery before flashing it!
    YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.


    Features:
    Code:
    - built from Pie kernel source
    - built from android-9.0 recovery sources
    - built in full 64 mode
    - fully compatible with Android 8.*/9.0/10.0

    Downloads:

    Instructions:
    Odin
    1. Download latest Odin zip from downloads.corsicanu.ro/samsung
    2. Download and install Samsung Drivers (if you have them installed you can skip this step)
    3. Go to settings/Developer options and enable OEM unlock (If you don't see developer settings, go into Settings/About phone/Software info and tap "Build number" 10 times to show Developer options menu)
    4. Download TWRP_*.tar
    5. Switch off the phone
    6. Use Bixby Key+Volume Down+Power to enter Download Mode and connect the device to usb
    7. Open Odin and untick autoreboot in "options" tab. Also make sure that your device is detected
    8. Put TWRP_*.tar.md5 file into AP tab
    9. Click Start
    10. When Odin shows "PASS", take your device in hands, disconnect the usb cable and press simultaneously the "Bixby key" + "Vol. Down" + "Power" buttons until the downoad mode disappears
    11. At the precise moment the screen becomes black, immediately release the "Vol.Down" button and press the "Bixby key" + "Vol. UP" + "Power" buttons during 10 to 15sec to forcefully enter TWRP
    12. If it didn`t worked, redo the steps from #1 more careful this time.
    TWRP
    • Download TWRP_*.img, push it into phone storage, choose install image in your current recovery, navigate to downloaded *.img file, select it, select to flash as recovery.
    After booting in TWRP download and flash no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.1 zip to disable data partition encryption
    If for any reason you fail to install TWRP multiple times/different methods, make sure you check this thread

    Q: Phone is showing only Samsung logo
    A: Try to reboot. If still not booting, consider installing an older TWRP build or a more recent firmware.

    Q: I get "Failed to mount /preload message", what to do?
    A: From wipe menu select Advanced Wipe, select preload partition to be wiped and reboot recovery.

    Q: Why do i need to format data partition?
    A: Because old rom encrypted your data partition and new rom can't decrypt and use that content / root needs access to data partition to place misc files / phone not booting after flashing root until data partition gets formatted.
