I really appreciate the work, but it's somewhat unflashable. New recovery is not stable, it gets stuck sometimes. Also I didn't manage to bring 8.1 to run with Gapps yet.
€: To provide somewhat more information: System crashes when running playstore.
€2: Full wipe made, advanced wipe and wiped every partition. It gets stuck coincidential, there's no proper reason for it, it got stuck once when I flashed MadOS itself, second time it got stuck flashing gapps, so I hope I get it run that night...
€3: Recovery freezes and after 30 seconds (approx) phone reboots.
€4: Nope, I don't get it to work, goddamnit. It freezes almost immediately after I enter my pin.

Yes, you only have to bring the recovery up again.
What you can also do is: Go back to 7.1 (flash it with SPflashtool) and then do the steps

I cant go to recovery...
Can start the phone but cant go to recovery after flash new recovery file posted on MAD facebook.
I dont have 8.1 because of that, just did the first step anda now cant go to recovery

Reflash 7.1 image using SPflashtool, I made a guide for this There you go. Then you can repeat.

Okay so 8.1 is not working at all... I get somewhat a weird failure on screen, the screen "sacks" down (main UI Activity just "fall down", status bar is still up) and then it freezes... Looking forward to get this fixed soon.
€: And the boot time is horrible, before I see a screen it's black for idk 2 Minutes
€3: Nvm lol, actually the phone is now unable to boot in System....
€4: Give it a try with "optional" F2FS File system step, let's see.

€5: Nope, didn't fix a thing. So well, at least I could capture this "sack down" thing:
0VcJY7jdTvaxE7iQf48VMA.png

The red line is where the display ends. As you can see the symbols are still in place. The blue line marks where the activity "sack down" and if this happens (which happens just on coincidence) nothing will happen any further, system's frozen and it reboots afterwards.
