Extract vbmeta.img from vbmeta_disabled_R.tar
Extract recovery.img from twrp-3.7.0_12-1_afaneh92-b0s.tar
Make new tar file (name it for instance vbmetaRecovery.tar) with these two extracted files and put that vbmetaRecovery.tar in USERDATA slot.
Hello at all,
the first thing I do was flashing my 908 B to the newest level of firmwares. No my phone is stock running on BVL 1.
I do this correctly and build the .tar file from the two other files.
After several trys I am looking for an mistake I probably do. But I can´t find nothing doing wrong.
I download the files some times, control there behavior and so on.....
Odin is also new version.
I am sitting here for about 5 hours and ODIN stopped flashing at the end of the green bar, switche to red and over and out.
I am not new in this job and flash some years and it worked like a charme. But now not !
Could it be that there is a little bit help for me? Please and thank you.

Best regards Tommy

    How exactly did you achieve the rw? Can you please give me step by step tutorial? Thanks (y)

    So are you trying to tell me that I've been basically wasting my time by doing 1 on 1 customer support in private with you for over 12 pages since July trying to get my rw script to work for all Samsung devices? :unsure:
    I am a little bit disappointed. I was honestly expecting more high quality feedback and a little bit more enthousiasm from you as well as a little bit more honesty. :(
    You could've told me back in July that you cannot or do not want to help me make my rw script to work on ALL devices out there but you only want to make YOUR device rw... Isn't that a little bit egoistic on your part? :unsure:
    Speaking of honesty. Didn't you tell me the other day that you're not a developer yet here you are publishing a ROM that's fully rw in a thread with a [DEVELOPMENT] tag... :unsure:

    What is dubious about my rom?
    I always had options to make my rom from many other sources: twrp backup after running afaneh rw script, offline manual creation of rw images but I chose to help you hoping to automate the rw image creation with your script.
    I had the willingness to help you making the script working over 12 pages of discussion as you say and countless tests but you never listen to my advises.
    Honestly, no point of washing our laundries in public.

    And this is the end of this topic from my point of view.

    Guys guys guys, is it really the best place to have such a discussion?

    I highly advise you to use the 13th page of your long discussion to clear things out. It's not like you're new to XDA ... 😉
