Hi all,

as I found out yesterday when I tried to load TWRP on my phone,
the new nougat update disables rooting on the new wileyfox nougat update, TOS111B-N6F26Y

also in my case, it has downgraded my sim card back to 2G network only, where before I was getting LTE consistently.and I can no longer wake from sleep using the volume rocker,

what Im looking for is either an updated method to install TWRP or root my phone with the new update,
and I have tried a few of the "one click solutions" like king root,kingo root ect....

or failing that a downgrade back to marshmallow version, is it even possible?

can anybody help ?

From my experience, TWRP 3.1.0.0 is not able to mount the system partition under Nougat (TOS093F nor TOS111B).
I don't know about TWRP 3.1.1.0, have you tried?
If not, you could go back to Cyanogenmod, see post #155 in the Nightly 14.1. lineageOS thread.

not possible, either version of TWRP,

was directed to try 3.0.0.0 and latest version

no joy with either, just sits on stock bootloader screen after reboot and removing battery
