Hi Guys,

I'm sure I read this somewhere further up. But is this build of TWRP, purely for Android 8 / 9 and upwards.

Or can it be used for older versions also, such as trips down memory lane... such as Android 4.4 roms onwards too...??? Or do you have to downgrade your TWRP, if you wish to run older roms...??

Thanks, Lister

TWRP 3.2.3.0

Hi all.
I have recently upgraded from ICS to TWRP 3.1.0.0 / Nougat 14.1. (it's an old spare phone) and all was well. I thought I'd try TWRP 3.2.3.0 / Oreo 15.1.
This is where I'm now really stuck. I had to flash the 15.1 zip first, go back and flash TWRP 3.2.3.0. I then flash 15.1 again and get a
"failed to map file'/sdcard1/ lineage-15" and "Error installing zip file" etc.

I then tried flashing the rom boot image via TWRP which in itself was successful, the install still brought up the same error.
I then tried reverting to 14.1 via TWRP 3.2.3.0 and the failed map error happened again.

Has anyone else come across this and found a solution?

Many thanks

Faff

Thanks for the advice guest4711. I have seen seen this advice many times in other posts but I had read "you need TWRP 3.2.3.0 for Oreo 15.1 install" somewhere and it must have stuck in my mind.

Hi @Faffendecker,

You are not alone, I've read that too... But there appears to be little to no info, backing this statement up? So I guess TWRP 3.2.3 isn't needed after all?? Norr is it clear, if it supersedes all previous, or if older versions are still required??

As much as I am grateful for the continued development of TWRP and all things... I think I'll stick to the older version, until I hear otherwise....

Cheers, Lister

Hi Lister.
Agreed there is very little inf on what versions of TWRP cover which OSes. Also, it is all to easy to become misinformed when trying to find out.
A good reason not to use the web when you have health worries!

You have to flash an IsoRec compatible kernel image separately, ie. boot.img, then all versions above 3.1 will work.
I have LOS 14.1 installed. Should this be enough to allow 3.2.3 to work?
For reference I had CM13.0 installed and that didn't let me use >=3.2.1.

14.1's kernel is enough for twrp 3.2.3-0 to install properly, and 14.1 will work with 3.2.3-0, ie. flashing, backing up, restoring, etc.

First flash one of the older IsoRec twrps, then the boot.img of your rom, then the official twrp. You only need to jump through all these hoops once, then you can update twrp and your rom normally.

Hi Ripee got one question, theorically there should be a way to keep an isorec recovery on it, while flashing 16.1,
Two days ago I needed to move files from external to internal storage, but on cell it's called gti9100 or smthg like that, on twrp was called ... dunno,
Didn't really know where i could copy my files,
Gone flashing a twrp updated img and same prob as some others,
Ended up with Los Unnof 16.1 on i9100 and an old recovery.

I could just adb push a recovery with Heimdall Suite,
But i dunno if internal will be accessible.
I remember you or smeone else saying there was a specific twrp available.

So one question:
Is there such a recovery somewhere?
Maybe on AndroidHost?

Edit : Will just follow your advice, thanks :)

Thank you.
Is there a step by step tutorial for dummies?
Because otherwise i would have a lot of questions :-/

(which isorec, where to get it, how to Flash it (which program, what to type, click), where to get boot.img, how to Flash it. how to save the original Rom file before?)

Can you please read the first post in this thread. Click on the link in the sentence mentioning IsoRec and read that thread as well.

Hello.
Sorry, I'm not an IT specialist and I do not have a PC. I'm just Galaxy S2 user for a long time.

How I can install any working version of TWRP recovery to my i9100 remaining with the latest original Samsung's firmware, which I use currently because it is the reliable firmware?

Please, if it is possible then provide detailed step by step instruction.

I have rooted my smartphone. I can use Mobile Odin on it. I even got TWRP 3.1.0 on it via Philz recovery but after that I can reboot the device into TWRP recovery only but with TWRP 3.1.0 it does not reboot to normal functioning as a smartphone with Samsung's latest firmware Android 4.1.2.
What can I do?
Please, help.

May if I upload here the official Samsung's firmware, which I use, then someone can modify it adding there TWRP support and then I will be flashing it via Mobile Odin for get TWRP with original Samsung's firmware?

I recommend to install easy Philz touch recovery v4.88 and do a custom backup of everything on your smartphone via it to an external microSD. It will take about 30 minutes.

When you will want go back then just easy install same Philz again, choose 'Restore from custom backups', select your backup file and restore.

This easy old way did saved my device few times already and I recommend it to everyone.
