Hi all:

Here is a TWRP recovery 3.6.0 for XPeria Z5 compact (suzuran).

Download 2021-12-02

This is a 7z archive with the TWRP image and the md5 file in it. Please unpack this archive. The md5 file is only for control purposes to verify that the download is not broken.
To verify the image file, enter this command line in a terminal window:
Code:
md5sum <image_name>
and compare the output with the content of the <image_name>.md5 file.

FYI: <image_name> is the full name of the image file, for example TWRP_3.6.0_9-0-recovery_suzuran_2021-12-02.img

This version uses a prebuilt kernel, therefore are no kernel sources needed.
Tree sources

Installation instructions:

  • Shutdown your device.
  • Wait about 10 seconds to be sure that the device is really shut down.
  • Press Volume-up, hold the button and then plug in the USB-Cable.
  • Release the button.
  • Wait until the LED turns blue.
  • Enter this code line in a terminal window:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery <image_name>
  • Press Enter.
  • When finished: Unplug the USB cable.
  • To enter TWRP press Volume-down and Power simultaneously.
Use this recovery image at your own risk! It comes without any warranty! I'm not responsible for any damage! If you don't agree with that, don't try to flash this recovery image in any way.

Thanks berni, its great project.
Also, this twrp can install without pc by using "Official TWRP App" in Play Store.
For install, open that app and give root permission and tap TWRP FLASH. after that, pass the device (our device isnt in list) just tap select a file to flash and select twrp img file.
After select, tap FILE TO FLASH and enjoy.

Works:

+Backup.
+Restore
+mount (all is works)
+unmount
+Wipe.
+Flash rom.
+Battery Percentage (need to wait a bit)
+terminal
+file manager (show, remove, create)

Doesnt Works:

-CPU temperature (shows 0 degree)

Maybe Bug:

?in reboot menu, there isnt "recovery"
?in reboot menu, there are system, power off but that 2 sector's icons are "file directory"

Fixed; see 1st post.

There must be a logic behind this. I'm not familiar enough with TWRP (and I also don't have enough time) to fix that.
?in reboot menu, there are system, power off but that 2 sector's icons are "file directory"
Fixed; see 1st post.

FYI: This is not a bug, it's a feature. In future versions some buttons will be replaced with this list style. I had to revert a commit to restore the button style.
But I'm quite sure that this will not work in the future any more.

Decryption not working (after trying by switching from delock pattern to PIN, due to lack of support of (de)lock pattern in the twrp) on 14.1

After installing this test-twrp it is not possible to enter bootloader mode... Blue light for only around 1 sec., then reboot into normal mode.
Any workaround?

Anyway, Berni, or others, I would very appreciate further effort to get the En/decrytion working. I would even donate something therefore :)
Because it is essential to avoid a lot of manual backup/restoring of data when trying / upgrading another (newer) ROM version.

Of course, I meant the extended shutdown menu of the lineage OS. :)
In this TWRP there is not such feature, but I have seen it on other devices, like TWRP for Z3 Tablet.

Keep on trying, pls! :)
