For all that want to use twrp

I was able to install it permanently by doing the following

you must use twrp 3.3.1.0 image (not the zip file) the newest version is too large to install to the ramdisk

boot into bootloader and fastboot boot into twrp 3.3.1.0

While in twrp go to advanced settings

install recovery to ramdisk

navigate to the twrp image you downloaded to your device earlier and select it

once finished go to reboot

reboot to recovery

profit!

When you mentioned the 'newest version is too large' are you referring to "twrp-installer-3.4.0-0-marlin.zip and/or twrp-3.4.0-0-marlin.img"?

The image file, when flashing to the ramdisk you use the image file not the zip

i decided to do a clean flash to upgrade to the newest release and it removed my permanent twrp and now it won't reinstall

via ramdisk now :-/ I am going to try again tomorrow, but it was working fine before hand.

    So you have TWRP permanently installed on Android 10? I can't get it to work :(

    Head back over to the TWRP screen on your phone and swipe the slider that says "Swipe to Allow Modifications" if needed. Now you should be sitting on the TWRP main menu where you can then go into the "Advanced" section. From there, tap the "Install Recovery Ramdisk" option, and finally, navigate to the "Download" folder where you copied the TWRP image file.

    Tap the image file once to bring up the "Install Recovery" main screen and check the "Back up existing image first" option to backup your current recovery for safekeeping. Now slide the "Swipe to Install" button at the bottom to begin installing the permanent version of TWRP onto your system partition. After it finishes installing, press the home button, go to "Reboot," then "Recovery".

    Does that mean that you actually managed it to install TWRP permanently on a Pixel XL running the latest version on any Android 10 ROMs?

    And what about when there's an OTA available. Do you have to reflash it then?

    I'm seriously impressed, because TWRP themselves said flashing TWRP on Android 10 wouldn't be possible yet (at least on Marlin) :eek:

    And last, but not least, can I put the pin/password/safety features back to activation after I installed TWRP?

    Yep i got it working, had to flash "twrp-pixel-installer-marlin-3.3.0-0.zip" and not the latest... dunno why but hey, it works!

    Does this work with latest TWRP as of june?
    *EDIT*
    Doesn't but "twrp-3.3.0-0-marlin.img" works following rodken's guide. Cheers!
