Don't use WIPE the data partition


What do you mean by "don't use wipe wipe the data partition"? Do you mean don't use the format data button, or do you mean don't do a factory reset? And why can't I wipe the data partition? What would go wrong?
I'm sorry for so many questions, but I'd like to use the format data button so I can remove encryption on the data partition.

Hi all. I am trying to recover content from a MediaTab T5 with a Damaged screen (no picture). I've managed to install these recoveries and reboot into them. However none of them provide an adb interface for shell access, only a virtual usb cd rom drive appears. How can I obtain recovery adb access? I need to enable USB debugging and push adbkey...

Anyone have any clues how I can work around this please. Is patched boot img the only way forward?

OK good news I Successfully booted into recovery and have adb access. I think the key was to power on with vol+, but WITHOUT the USB cable attached. If USB cable is attached then it tries to boot to system regardless

     * Your warranty is now void.
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices.
     * ATTENTION: YOU are choosing to install this recovery at your own risk.
     * I do not take responsibility for any problems with your device.

    - This recovery is based on the TWRP from Pretoriano80
    - Notch-friendly; due to notch-design I re-positioned the clock, now it is visible all the time
    - I added the possibility to do a full device backup, thanks to Sudeep Duhoon

    fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk TWRP_3.2.1-0_ANE-LX1_Full_01.img
    fastboot reboot
    *Note many devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot.
    To prevent this, after typing fastboot reboot, remove the USB cable and hold the Vol+ key and boot to TWRP.
    Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP.
    If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.

    Note: No sources available due to minor changes on the Pretoriano80's TWRP

    Download link:
    If your firmware is EMUI9.1, then can u pls describe the exact steps how did you make Magisk working on it?

    At first, follow the steps from Magisk Install:
    1) Download a current FullOTA Firmware
    2) deflate UPDATE.APP
    3) Extract RECOVERY_RAMDIS.img (Using Huawei Image Extractor)
    4a) Install Magsik-App
    adb install MagiskManager-v7.3.2.apk
    4b) Push Recovery to device
    adb push RECOVERY_RAMDIS.img /sdcard/Download
    4c) Let Magisk patch Recovery (Start MagisManager on device Install → Install → Select and Patch a File)
    4d) Pull patched recovery from device
    adb pull /sdcard/Download/magisk_patched.img
    5) Restart device with VOL- and Power, Install this image to RECOVERY_RAMDISK
    fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk recovery_ramdisk_patched.img
    6) Now you can either do fastboot reboot, pull out the cord and push volup+power or do it slowly:
    fastboot reboot
    adb reboot recovery
    7) Start Magsik, push install to set up some necesarry stuff reboot

    Take care: you'll always have to reboot using recovery
    From Magsik-Doc in GitHub:
    In summary, after installing Magisk:

    (Powering up normally) → (System with NO Magisk)
    (OEM Recovery Key Combo) → (Splash screen) → (Release all buttons) → (System with Magisk)
    (OEM Recovery Key Combo) → (Splash screen) → (Keep pressing volume up) → (Actual recovery)

    Some thinks I've noticed:
    First of all, I was not able to enter the recovery (but this may be concerned as I almost always have connect the usb for now)
    Taht's the reason, I was not able to reset/wipe the device (as eRecovery uses the normal recovery to wipe the device).
    Don't panic: just reflash the original RECOVERY_RAMDIS.img and do everyhting nesessary.

    Good luck,
    download link is broken
    can anyone share the recovery file
    This is an outdated version...

    Look here
    Will this recovery and future custom ROMs be compatible with ane-lx3?
    This recovery should be compatible with ANE-LX3.
    I don't have an answer in short term if this recovery will be compatible with custom ROMs but I'm work on it.
    Hi, is it possible to install this recovery in a completely stock unit without USB debugging enabled? Thanks!
    Hi, USB debugging has nothing to do with this process, to flash TWRP the bootloader must be unlocked.
