TWRP 3.1.1-0 for Huawei Nova

kgfmBY9.jpg


Notes

1) It has been confirmed that's working on EMUI 4.1. However, it haven't been tested on EMUI 5 and i don't know if encryption is working. If it is working, you won't have to format /data. So, i would be glad if someone could test it.

2) I've chose the red color because it looks kinda cool and it's also easy to know which recovery you're using. In future, i may change it back to blue or i may change it to other color (like teal). I may also do it like @Meticulus did for his TWRP's (red color when you're on EMUI and blue when you're on LineageOS etc.) or maybe a new color every time you go to recovery lol.

3) There are still some things with blue color. I'll look into it more as I'd like to change the whole blue color. I wanna do it in the source code.


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 feel.


Requirements



Installation


If you already have a TWRP installed:

1) Boot in TWRP.
2) Select "Install", then "install image".
3) Select the recovery.img where you've placed it and then choose recovery from the partition list.
5) Reboot recovery if you wanna boot in TWRP or reboot system.


If you don't have any TWRP installed:

1) Unlock your bootloader. Here's a guide about how to do it.

2) Run the following command in terminal (linux) or command prompt (windows, e.g. minimal ADB and fastboot):
Code:
[COLOR="red"]/* If you are doing this on Linux, 
then run fastboot with [B]sudo[/B]: sudo fastboot blabla */[/COLOR]

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

I don't have any problem with backups. I've made backups and restored them without any problem. As for OTG, I don't have the possibility to test that.

Please share the recovery log.

Well, seems the sd card was buggy, replaced it with a new samsung evo and
everything went smooth from there. (seems ext sd is the only selectable storage).
Now, have you noticed the warning about "project" part during backup?
is it normal?

I haven't received any PM. Maybe it's XDA's fault as it looks like it's fucked up. All my posts were delayed today and noticed the same thing at other users.

Well, I didn't have this problem, but /product has some files (like acdbata, needed for audio) which EMUI uses and LineageOS or other ROMs too (since it's using blobs from EMUI). So, this could be a problem for ROMs like Lineage, but I think you can just fastboot the product.img after you extract it from update.app (stock firmware).

You can also try to restore this TWRP backup of product partition and restore it.

Thanks, as you may read the log later, it gave 2 errors at beginning and the end that it could not read or open Product. something like that.
I'm still on B151 MM Rom , will this backup of product work with any version?

Ok , my fear came true, long story short: I installed latest rom via FF app and bootloop began.
tried many ways, didnt work. flashed twrp again and tried to restore that nandroid backup, turns out those 2 errors were serious: failed to mount cust, failed to mount product, system goes near end then another error and quits. only boot and data seems restored fine.

while i'm going to try that smoochi's backup (bless him) , can you please recheck to see if my case was some isolated issue or there is something to fix about this reccovery?
thanks

I was on emui 4 (B151) everything was fine until I got an itch to try android 7!
Ok, I restored with smoochi backup then updated to B341 , now cust is gone
(no update in setting either) so went to reflash this twrp , but it seems unlocking bootloader is not enough, now says FRP locked! wtf??
I already hate this android 7! I'll get back to 6 first chance i get !
