Oreo Recompile

As Everyone of us knows the oreo version is on page 46 ;) but is there anny hope that the official TWRP image will be updated to the oreo branch aswell??
Because the version on page 46 is TWRP 3.2.3 (old)...

Try this one. Im using the 3.2.3-x_Omni_New_Kernel version with my Stock ROM cause "ashyx oreo version" doesnt work for me and i dont want to format my ext. sd card for a possible working solution. Didnt tried the newest version, but should work too.

thank you! But I don't have any problems (lineage 16) so I formated the storage. But I'ld like official support and my question is more "why isn't the official updated" or "why is there a version in the official repo that doesn't work with the current os" or at least it should be written there

I flashed this twice now from a clean install and the twrp is not fully working. It installs, i can boot into it, but it will not mount internal storage. Every time it tries to do something it just says failed to mount etc etc etc. Followed the steps 1:1

Did you format your data ("Format Data" with "Yes")? This step is necessary to access to internal storage. Look at the following pictures:

https%3A%2F%2Fforum.xda-developers.com%2Fimg.xda-cdn.com%2FRxk73kCpr_Z0Ks68cBGUjADJ4uA%3D%2Fhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.android-hilfe.de%252Fattachments%252Fscreenshot_2018-12-11-12-30-58-png.678722%252F


https%3A%2F%2Fforum.xda-developers.com%2Fimg.xda-cdn.com%2F-FKjT1RSSe8zktQz8JWXSti-FyQ%3D%2Fhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.android-hilfe.de%252Fattachments%252Fscreenshot_2018-12-11-12-31-06-png.678723%252F



But remember, with this step you delete your data and you have to re-setup your FW again.




Edit: Btw. official twrp 3.3.0-0 is for wifi available. But dont install it. It seems the sourcecode is still nougat. Doesnt work. The same purple lines like the other one.



Please @jcadduono update kernel source to oreo.

Restore from TWRP backup problem

I've installed the latest TWRP on my T580 and installed 4 different Pie ROMs. I backed up each ROM in TWRP but when I try to restore any of the backups, it semi bricks the tablet. The only way to get it working again is to use Odin to install a stock ROM and then start over installing a custom ROM.

Try this one - I'm on the T585 and have been using his versions from the start, never any issues restoring a nandroid :good: :)

That is actually the first one I tried and then tried 3.3.1. But I found the problem. I was actually backing up too much. When I left "System Image" unchecked, the backup restored OK.

Hehe ok, that's 1 thing I never tried to back up :laugh:

I actually meant to link to 3.3.1-1 but I neglected to update my bookmark when he released the new version, oops :eek:

Yea, 3.3.1-1 should work fine, I've been using it for a few days now :good: :)

Do you recommend selecting system or system image in backup? Also what do you recommend to select in addition to boot and data and system? Anything else?

System image no, system yes ... and boot, data + EFS or whatever it's called, no caches of course. Too lazy to boot to recovery again today to check, I already did so when updating my rom this morning :angel: :laugh:

Thanks ?
I use adoptable storage and I have several problems with wipes and with the restore of partitions: internal storage and adoptable storage. When I try to do internal storage wipe and sd adoptable storage card, an error comes out. Same thing when restoring the backup. I can send some photos if necessary.
Can I ask you which rom you use on the t580 tab?

I have never used adoptable store and never will, so I'm not the one to ask - sorry :angel:

My tab is the T585 (same thing, just with LTE) and atm I'm using AEX ... but I've also tried and liked RR and Bootleggers :good: :)

Twrp and Odin issues

I have the 8.1 stock rom atm, i had to factory reset because of dislike in a the resurrection remix rom, I can get Odin to flash twrp, I'm using the 3.3.1.0-gtaxlwifi version at the moment, but when I do so all I get after booting is lines from the top of my screen to the bottom and it won't boot into the system or recovery afterwards, i can only boot into download mode. Any advice is appreciated, thank you.


I've tried earlier versions of Twrp as well, however i neglected to check out page 46 until 10 min after I posted, I am also having issue with my external sd card being read except when formatted to ext2 (I had to install via OTG for custom roms, and Gapps, glad I could at least figure it out before I looked like a complete moron! And thank you for the 3.2.3-2 tar that finally ended up working! :D Amazing work.

    Team Win Recovery Project 3.0.2-0



    This is for the Exynos WiFi SM-T580 model only!

    WARNING: Flashing a custom recovery to your device will trip the Knox warranty bit on your phone. Check with your retailer to see if they will still cover warranty on Knox bit triggered devices. If you understand this risk, continue on.


    WHAT IS TWRP?

    Oh come on, you know what it is - don't try to fool me!
    In case you're serious, though...

    Team Win Recovery Project is a custom recovery for Android devices.
    It allows you to back up and restore your data, flash custom ROMs to your device, repair broken file systems, and root your device.

    DOWNLOAD

    You can find the device page here:
    http://teamw.in/devices/samsunggalaxytaba101wifi2016.html

    There is a download link there, as well as instructions on how to flash it.

    I highly recommend using Odin to flash when possible.
    You can find a zip containing Odin as well as a link to Samsung's Mobile drivers page here:
    https://idlekernel.com/flash-tools/

    FULL STEPS FOR OBTAINING ROOT

    1. In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.
      Transparent.gif
    2. Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
      You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.
      Transparent.gif
    3. Make sure your don't have Factory Reset Protection enabled in your Google account or you may never be able to boot again!
      More information: https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/6172890?hl=en
      Transparent.gif
    4. Extract Odin_3.12.3.zip to your computer.
      Transparent.gif
    5. Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.
      Transparent.gif
    6. Download a .tar image of TWRP for gtaxlwifi.
      Transparent.gif
    7. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] buttons while your device reboots.
      Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.
      Transparent.gif
    8. Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot, under Options tab disable Auto Reboot, then press [Start].
      Transparent.gif
    9. Once the flash is complete (Odin should tell you in the log, and progress bar on phone should stop), you can hold [Volume Up] + [Home] + [Power] buttons until you reach recovery mode.
      If you end up in stock recovery, start again from download mode step.
      Transparent.gif
    10. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
      You will want to swipe to allow, otherwise the OS will replace TWRP once you boot!
      Transparent.gif
    11. If you want to be rooted with SuperSU:
      Download the latest SuperSU by Chainfire.
      Without exiting TWRP, transfer the SuperSU zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
      Transparent.gif
    12. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].
    * MTP, known as Media Transfer Protocol, is the same way you transfer files from your PC to your device when booted into system.

    Is there a way to keep "Data" encryption turned off? I saw on a few other Exynos device TWRP threads there is a "dm-verity and force encryption disabler" does that help?
    This may work for you.

    Install the zip with TWRP, FORMAT DATA(Not wipe!)
    Check DATA can be mounted.

    Reboot to TWRP, check DATA is still mountable.



    BOOT IMAGE PATCHER
    Boot image patcher to remove DM-verity and Forced encryption.
    Flash the zip below with TWRP.

    This was built by jcadduono not me, so props to him, I just modified it to work for this device and to remove the SEANDROID ENFORCING message.

    NOTE: IF YOU INTEND TO ROOT THEN FLASH THIS AFTER SUPERSU.

    Thanks for this work!

    "internal storage is listed as 0MB"

    EDIT2: As mentionned by @jcadduono , there is a simpler method than mine :
    BTW you can just flash TWRP and use the [Format Data] button on wipe page which will do the same thing, making data available (but completely wiped, including internal storage!!!)

    EDIT3: use@ashyx' patch to remove encryption:
