anybody can help me out with the installation of this rom, i currently have a XZU 6802 with stock lollipop rom .236 rooted and with twrp recovery 2.8 i think...i downloaded the rr remix rom 5.5.9 but i cant install it using the recovery i even tried to wipe everything but my phone wont boot only black screen...any suggestion or help are welcome thanks...
think you need 1) bootloader unlocked if not already 2) twrp 3.0.2
What i did is install stock rom (unlocked bootloader) then instead of booting up instaleld the twrp 3.0.2 through fastboot and went straight to recovery to install this rom
that recovery stuff messes things up imo...very few stock roms if any having 3.0.2 and a reboot to recovery takes you to the cwm instead when on the dual recovery
custom kernels also do not have 3.0.2...only rom that has it to my knowledge is the Flyme (cm 12.1 base)
if you install 2.8 and then install 3.0.2 you will see that both exist...just depends on how you go to recovery..hardware buttons may take you to 3.0.2 ...reboot to recovery will take you to 2.8 (don't understand the stuff something to do with the recovery tied to kernel and recovery on some other partition)
Thanks for your reply, I had my bootloader unlocked, backed up ta partition but still i cant install the rom...only blackscreen and wont boot...i tried to flash twrp 3.0.2 thru fastboot but error occurs each time i tried the outcome was i had no recovery at all even by pressing the hardware buttons, so i went back to 2.8.7...is there any other way to flash twrp 3.0.2?
As I suggested on nougat thread maybe list the device you have .. wondering if it is a device issue... quite often see issues from 6802's
Edit I see that you do have the 6802 but still twrp should still work...do the fastboot erase recovery command as in the twrp thread I pointed out
After fastboot flash disconnect turn on by pressing volume down and power button on vibration release power..upon Sony logo release volume down at least this is on c6806
Note that once I flashed stock I did not reboot (not that it should make a difference but that us how I did it...went straight to fastboot process)
