Hey there,Dear members, Hope you are all fine. I am new to install this firmware to my lenovo tab4 10 701LV softbank Japense device but i failed to install TWRP and run it on my device. I think the problem is i dont know how to root this device.
Is root is must to do before install this twrp in my deivce?
I am able to successfully upload twrp on my device adb but my device just restart to normal. It didnot went to TWRP bootload.
Is there anyone help me to install this firmware to my device.
Thanks very much.,
No you do not need to root your device to boot/flash TWRP on it. All you need to do is to unlock bootloader. The matter then is to find the correct version of TWRP which works for your device.
To test TWRP version best is to boot them before eventually flash them. A few things might not work in boot mode from my own experience but you can already test if touchscreen is working ok or make initial devices FULL backups before you start messing up things
So once bootloader unlocked reboot bootloader
fastboot boot c:\twrp-x701l.img
Please note you are on a x704_ device thread, that's not what you seem to own since you said you had 701lv. You need to get the right version for your device trying other versions devices will likely result into failing or worse brick your device.
Hope this helps.
