So I managed to get one of the TWRP versions to boot but it did not ask me for a password and I do have a password on my phone so I didn't want to risk it didn't use it but yes I guess the newest update did break something hopefully we get a solution

@mikalovtch sorry seems the new update has broken twrp, any ideas to get it going again?
Hello! I will try to build new version tonight. I will publish it here to someone try because I don't have ROG Phone 5 or 5S.

Version from this post will boot but has issue with decryption data partition. You can use sideload or USB OTG instead of /sdcard/


Still trying to get new version ASAP

Is the twrp.me version not receiving updates from you?

Safe to flash without pw?

    All flashing is done at your own risk!
    While nothing from this thread should break your device,
    don't come back here blaming anyone if it does!

    Introduction

    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

    Images



    Prerequisites

    Installation instructions

    Fastboot Install Method:
    You will need the platform-tools from the Android SDK on your computer. Find the Android command line tools section on the page linked and install the SDK tools package. From the SDK Manager, download only the platform-tools to get adb and fastboot binaries.

    Windows users will need proper drivers installed on their computer. You can try the Naked ADB drivers or the Universal ADB drivers if you don't already have a working driver installed

    On your device, go into Settings -> About and find the Build Number and tap on it 7 times to enable developer settings. Press back and go into Developer Options and enable USB debugging. From your computer, open a command prompt and type:
    Code:
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
    You should now be in fastboot mode.

    Download the correct image file and copy the file into the same folder as your adb and fastboot binaries. Rename the image to twrp.img and type:
    Code:
    Code:
    fastboot boot twrp.img

    Now you are booted into TWRP, but it is NOT permanently installed. To install it permanently, use the "Flash current TWRP" option in the Advanced menu. This will install the currently booted TWRP permanently to both slots. NOTE: If you were previously rooted, you will need to re-install the root apk/zip as the TWRP install will overwrite it!

    Device Changelog

    Current version: 3.5.2_11-2:
    3.5.2_11-2
    • Common version for all ROG 5 versions.
    • Fixed decryption issue
    3.5.2_11-0:

    Initial version (Tested only on ROG Phone 5S, need info about ROG Phone 5).



    Device Changelog


    Known issues

    Device-specific
    • USB-OTG not working
    • Battery Status not working

    Bug reporting

    If you have an issue, the first step is to post a recovery log so we can determine the cause of the issue. This is done in recovery using Advanced -> Copy Log, or adb pull /tmp/recovery.log. Once a log is uploaded we can determine how best to proceed. NOTE: Posts that are reporting bugs or issues without an accompanying recovery log will be ignored! Additionally, providing details about your device setup, including variant, firmware version, and exact steps to reproduce your issue will also be helpful in diagnosing the problem.

    If your issue is determined to be 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 contact us via our website. 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!

    Here's my trip around the sun;

    Downloaded the file twrp-3.5.2_11-2zs673ks.img and renamed it to just twrp.img. (So it's easier to type in CMD).
    Placed it on the root of my C: Drive where I keep all my flash files.

    Shut down phone, Then Volume up and power to go to fastboot mode. That's the screen where it shows some options like Power On, Recovery Mode and Reboot. Just stay there, dont select anything.

    Connected the cable via side USB port and executed the following commands;

    0023.png


    First command to check connectivity, second command is to boot to TWRP.
    No flashing !! remember always; new TWRP cannot be flashed through fastboot because recovery is a part of the existing partition, not a separate one like it used to be on Android 8 and below.

    Once you execute the above command, be patient. Your phone will come back to bootloader screen making it look like it failed. Just wait, it will reboot again and it will go to TWRP. Now you can enter you pin code, and enter the recovery.
    I flashed a kernel, I cleared my dalvik cache .. everything went well.




    Now if you want to keep TWRP permanent;

    Copy the twrp.img to your phone memory, preferably downloads folder of the phone, and follow the above steps mentioned - again up to entering TWRP.

    In TWRP, select advanced, and you will see the below screen -

    Screenshot_2021-09-16-07-36-25 (Medium).png


    Select the option - Install Recovery Ramdisk and it will ask where your TWRP.img is, and point it to the file you earlier saved in the phone / downloads folder. This will flash TWRP within the kernel making it permanent along with your kernel.

    That's it, reboot and enjoy.

    EDIT : How to get to TWRP again;
    From CMD - send adb reboot recovery or
    shut down phone, Volume UP + Power .. In bootloader press volume down until you see recovery mode, and then press the power button once to select it.
