Dear community,
I have a doogee S96 pro, I'm from Italy, and I installed TWRP from the unofficaltwrp guide.

Now I'm no more able to boot, the phones goes directly to the recovery.

Probably magisk was no able to patch the system and to disable the tm verity (avb). I have a super partition, and from what I saw the fstab is inside the vendor partition inside super.

Doogee does not provide stock roms, so I cannot restore the phone as factory settings, that's why I open this thread.

Is someone available to help me booting into Android or available to give me the stock boot/recovery img? It's a fast and safe procedure, I can give more details on how to do.

Thank you!

Dear @giubenez I had a similar problem. But after I got in touch with doogee support they sent me the firmware. I want to share it with you and with any other person that wants to ROOT THE DOOGEE S96 PRO

The following link is the firmware and upgrade tool. Please open and download.
Please note that if your computer system is French you need to change the name of the downloaded file.


When upgrading the firmware, please do not select the 'Format All+Download' option
When flashing the phone, please set up the software first, turn off the phone, and then connect the phone to the computer.

Best wishes

@giubenez Im very happy to contribute something. IDK why doogee doesnt list this firmware in their website. I was very lucky to receive an answer to my emails.

Also I successfully rooted my S96 PRO, but I learned a few things in the process that might be helpful to you or anyone trying to root this model.

1) After flashing the boot.img (using magisk method). The device went into a boot loop. I could not enter into recovery mode either. I discovered vbmeta was responsible for the boot loop.

Google introduced vbmeta which is also a verity check. An option to bypass this check is to flash an empty vbmeta.img before attempting to flash TWRP recovery.

I solved this by flashing an empty vbmeta file.
Code:
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
You can download the vbmeta.img file I used HERE

2) After flashing vbmeta, the device finally booted and the root was done. But the first time, I noticed all the internal storage folders and files were encrypted. (I know this is normal when you browse files through TWRP, but it happened to me while using the phone in the first boot)
I solved that by wiping > Format Data in TWRP

3) Here you can find the files I used to install TWRP and remove the orange state notification on boot: LINK "Credits to www.getdroidtips.com"

btw a couple of days after your post, another user posted the same folder on https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=1010578&st=340.

I rooted the phone by using the 4pda method (i.e. flashing super.img, boot.img, vbmeta.img). After that I flashed twrp and it was fine. Everything was working.

After that I downloaded the OTA update and the phone is no more able to boot, simply goes to TWRP. I tried formatting data, dalvik and cache but the situation is always the same: when i try to boot i go to the recovery. Any idea? Thank you

I solved in this way:
>fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
(with the empty vbmeta
>fastboot.exe flash recovery recovery.img
(with the stock recovery)
>fastboot reboot

after that the update attempted to start and failed, the phone then boot to android.

The updates always failes after that, so I disabled them.

this is why the update fails..is it because I used the the Russian super img?
IMG_20210316_145020~2.jpg


#edit: it was because I flashed the wrong recovery. With the correct one, i still have issues with the update: md5 chechsum controll is not passed and the update aborts.

I don't care, I prefer a rooted phone without the updates.
