Finally managed to get it to boot after clean flash, but now i lost volte vowifi (telstra australia) and since this rom doesnt have qualcome diag mode i cant use pdc. i dont understand why the dev touched all this without even warning us.
I tried to write general directions, because many people don't know that there is no recovery decrypting the data.
pitfalls in clean-flash too
were you successful in upgrading from (android) 11 to 12 using swift backup to restore call logs, sms, contacts, apps+data... everything? please list the procedure you followed. thanks.
I bought Swift Backup AFTER going from 11 to 12 unfortunately so can't tell, buit the app is awesome so you should be good with it!
Fixed manually by installing an app called activity launcher and searching within the app for "restore". "Data restore tool" will appear in the results, expand it and launch the activity that ends in "CloudRestoreFlowActivity". This will launch what was supposed to launch during the initial setup.
Internal storage is stored in /data/media. If you backup data partition, this folder will not be backed up, unless you rename it to something else like "/data/media.BAK".
I suggest you to flash 12.5.5 firmware as 12.5.7 seem like it can brick x3 nfc according to arrowos telegram channelI've recently upgraded from 11 to 12.1. When doing so I installed 12.5.7 firmware. I have had zero problems with ghosting.
With respect to nandroid backups, the latest TWRP that I'm using can save them to an external SD card which is what I do (and I believe to USB OTG but I haven't tested this)
Yes, you can downgrade TWRP by flashing an older version.
