I have just got myself a Pixel 5 with Android 11 on it. I used to have a Pixel 2 on which I boot TWRP using ADB to make Nandroid backups. I'd like to do the same with the Pixel 5.
I have dowloaded twrp-installer-3.7.0_11-0-redfin.zip from the TWRP Pixel5 site. I was expecting to find a twrp.img file in the archive, but there isn't. There's "magiskboot" and "ramdisk-twrp.cpio". I have hunted high and low, but I cannot find any guidance on what to do with these files.
I read that a cpio file is an archive file of some sort, but I could find any way to unarchive it to see if the twrp.img file is within. The installation instructions on the TWRP Pixel5 site says to "run the following command: fastboot boot path/to/twrp.img", but where is this img file?
Any help would be gratefully recieved.
I am so sorry. I am blind as a bat and as thick as two short planks. The img file is right in front of me to download and did not see it.
