OrangeFox Recovery for the Oneplus 8t
Download


Boot it with: fastboot boot OrangeFox-R11.1-Unofficial-OnePlus8T.img
or flash it directly with: fastboot flash recovery OrangeFox-R11.1-Unofficial-OnePlus8T.img
You can also flash the OrangeFox-R11.1-Unofficial-OnePlus8T.zip file from TWRP

The OrangeFox sources are still based on Android 11, so it can not decrypt internal Storage on Android 12.x yet (if using Android 12.x on encrypted Storage!)

After flashing a ROM (Android 11 or lower) and doing a Format Data, you need first Boot to System once, otherwise the Internal Storage is not accessible from OrangeFox.


ROM Flashing instructions:
-Flash ROM
-Flash OrangeFox
-Reboot to recovery (to switch slot)
-Flash (Nik)Gapps (if needed)
-Flash Magisk
-Format data
-Reboot to system

If you get a Bootloop after flashing a ROM and having done a Format Data do the below:

Boot to bootloader and:
- fastboot devices
- fastboot -w
- fastboot reboot

Hi all!

I will need to rebuild the OrangeFox and also found some other small thing I need to fix.
I will do that and upload a new Version in the next days.

Seems I messed up something when changing the devicename (kebab/OnePlus8T).

Hi all!

I have just uploaded a new Version of my Orangefox.

Now it should be possible to correctly flash/install it.

Changelog:
- Changed device name from kebab to OnePlus8T
- Some small bug fixes

The download link is updated with the new Version in the OP.

Enjoy. :)
Just updated to this build and it wont let me boot back to the OS, just loops back to orange fox recovery, tried flashing the OLD version but that errors, fastbooted the old version and it wont let you flash OF back again... had to resort to booting TWRP to get the system working again.. Now back on the older Orange Fox which we love ....

Is this version Android 12 support...
Since this is based on the OrangeFox 11.0 sources and there are no sources for OrangeFox 12.0 which would be based on Android 12 this is still based on Android 11 until there are new sources for OrangeFox which I can use to build a new Version with full Android 12 support.

So OrangeFox Version R11.1 is not able to decrypt the Storage when you are on Android 12!
I guess you can still flash/use Android 12 with OrangeFox so long your Storage is not encrypted.
It is most about the encryption of Android 12 which is different and will not work with this OrangeFox Version as of now.

Interesting and nice with an alternative to TWRP for this device.

Do orangefox also have the same ~50s boot delay that the current TWRP version for 8T has?

    Hi and thanks for your work.
    I haven't flashed any custom yet on 8T, but I'm coming from MI A2 that works too with A/B partitions and I understood the way it works.

    In 8t, flashing OFox makes it permanent or I must reflash it after flashing a ROM?
    And I have read that I must do something related to partitions previous to flash first custom ROM, do you know what I'm talking about? sorry for not to give more info...

    Thanks in advanced.
    Hi!
    You will need to reflash OrangeFox after flashing a custom ROM, as the ROM mostly will flash the recovery which is coming with the ROM.

    I guess you mean copy-partitions ?
    So, before flashing a custom ROM you should make sure that you are on the latest OOS11 (which is OOS 11.0.13.13) on both slots.
    The copy-partitions script is copying the data of the partitions to the other slot so that you are in sync on both slots before flashing a custom ROM.
    Espacially if you are coming from OOS12 you need to downgrade to OOS11 before flashing a custom ROM and when you do that using MSMdownloadtool, that will only flash to one of the slots, so you use copy-partitions afterwards to have both slots synced with the latest OOS11 before going ahead.

    Thank you mate. I'm right now in last OOS11, exactly at the version you wrote. Should I use copy-partitions script before flash my first custom?

    Greetings!
    Yes
