Hello everybody,

I successfully unlocked the bootloader following this tutorial https://forum.xda-developers.com/ki.../thor-unlocking-bootloader-firmware-t3463982. I have used the files "twrp_cubed.img and aboot_vuln.mbn".

Question now to you: I can easily make an update to TWRP apollo-twrp-3.1.1-1.img or is the file twrp_cubed.img a special case of the TWRP as with the Safestrap?
The special 'cubed' version of TWRP can be replaced with any build from this thread once the bootloader is unlocked. There are several ways to apply an update. Perhaps the easiest is to use Flashify available in the Play Store or APKMkrror ([url="http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/christian-gollner/flashify/”]here[/url]).

Cautions:
- be sure to download the proper build for your device (Apollo or Thor)
- suggest verifying signature (MD5) after download
- always a good idea to backup existing recovery in Flashify
- double check partition selection; TWRP gets installed to recovery
- jamming a recovery image into the boot partition will brick device
- see OP for further guidance

You sir, are a legend.
It's amazing to see such great people supporting old devices.
I remember back in the day when there was limited functionality on the device, where you had to use safestrap to use ROMS.
You've come leaps and bounds since then, with finding exploits to unlock the bootloader and flash custom firmware without the need of safestrap.

Keep up with the great work!

Thanks for provide this recovery! Now my hdx's touch screen is not working, I try to follow your solution link, but the new-flash recovery is not available for adb. I tried using Android kitchen to unpack apollo-twrp-3.1.1-1.img, but there is no boot.img-ramdisk dir to find and edit the file default.prop. I also tried same progress on other suitable recovery, but something wrong with repack. After flash the repacked recovery.img, using "adb/fastboot reboot recovery" hdx just load into fastboot mode. Can you compile a recovery.img with adb access? It seems like need full Android resource code and correct makefile with linux, that's too complicated to me. Thanks anyway.
BTW, I try to execute flash command in system, but it end with "ERROR: input driver not found". Is that means can't get touch screen rework? If so just forget my ask...

This is due to hardware problems, please ignore my last post.

Download for thor-twrp-3.1.1-1.img on androidfilehost.com isn't working. Is it just me? :(

thor-twrp-3.1.1-0.img and thor-twrp-3.1.0-0.img (which I'm currently using since 3.1.1-0 seems to have trouble flashing Gapps) work just fine.

Unless this is working for everyone else, would it be possible to reupload or provide an alternate dl? :)

Works fine here, both Apollo and Thor. Used Washington DC mirror (USA). Confirming fileid: thor-twrp-3.1.1-1.img
