Ok, I'm in TWRP. Now my goals are to install Magisk and have TWRP persist between reboots.

Every time I select and install magisk's zip file TWRP restarts.
Every time I reboot the phone TWRP needs to be fastbooted back...

Any ideas on how to tackle this?

UPDATE: magisk 24 was linked in the OP magisk 23 worked fine. Any reason to update?

Download and rename this file as .zip https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases/download/v25.0/Magisk-v25.0.apk
Then flash it via twrp reboot and rename it again to apk and install

Good evening.



I just tried to root a Oneplus Nord 2 5G (EU Edition) and got as far as:



fastboot flash recovery twrp.img



It always returns “error flashing partition” “volume full”



Unfortunately, the phone was upgraded to Android 12. Could that be the problem?

If so, how can I get back to Android 11 (bootloader is unlocked).

I do not want to fiddle too much with it, not to make things worse.



Thanks a lot for your help.

Hello again.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Since I only flashed one phone more than 10 years ago, I followed everything by the letter.
The video clearly asked to update the system software (at the time to version 10). There was no mention of the disappearance of fastboot on version 12.
I cannot remember to which version I updated. I may still have version 11.

In any case fastboot works and adb commands are being accepted. It can also be put in fastboot via VOL UP, DN & POWER.
The last successful step was flashing the vbmeta image.

TWRP flashing results in “error flashing partition” “volume full”.

What shall I do now? Is there any test to run?

I am seriously at a loss here since I am sitting in front of a bricked phone.

There should also be a warning out not to update to version 12.

I would really appreciate your help and do not want to try out thousands of ideas from other websites.

Thank you again.

No solution for that you need to revert back to oos11

Hi, I successfully followed this procedure but had bootloop problem with twrp+root a few months ago and decided to stay unrooted for some times, I found that root may be stable if I followed these steps : https://gist.github.com/Giovix92/c7e69123dbc51adf3f3a26f9c3c0208e#rooting. Can someone confirm that root is stable (no bootoloop) with this procedure ?
Patched boot image flashing replace u r stock boot imge and this twrp fashing of magisk also patches the stock boot image.
Nothing different

Hi, thanks for the guide and help here. I followed the steps, and was able to unlock bootloader, flash vbmeta, but flashing recovery and then booting into it is failing because of error : "unknown reboot target recovery"







fastboot: usage: unknown reboot target recovery

Before that,

0. My goals are just rooting, and preferably passing safety net. TWRP is not necessary, but I used it because it was in the guide.
1. I have Indian version
2. Android 11
3. Build DN2101_11_A.11
4. When downloading TWRP from here, version twrp-3.6.0_11-0-UNOFFICIAL-denniz.img cannot find any mirrors, so I had to download version twrp-3.5.2_11-0-UNOFFICIAL-denniz.img
5. I am using Linux , and ubuntu provided android-tools-adb / android-tools-fastboot packages for ADB and fastboot
6. Error when rebooting into recovery
Bash:
# fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
target reported max download size of 134217728 bytes
sending 'recovery' (131072 KB)...
OKAY [  4.148s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.274s]
finished. total time: 4.422s
# fastboot reboot recovery
fastboot: usage: unknown reboot target recovery

7. Error when booting into downloaded image is
Bash:
# fastboot boot twrp.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  4.198s]
booting...
FAILED (status read failed (No such device))
finished. total time: 16.388s


Mr Vag had also posted similar error "unknown reboot target recovery" in this thread, but I didn't find any reply to it.

Any help would be appreciated greatly.

    This worked great! Only problem I had was unlocking the bootloader and flashing TWRP without booting up caused the stock recovery to overwrite it again for some reason. After repeating the steps after unlocking it worked. Also, if you have the same problem as me with Magisk being unable to bypass the safety net, try this:

    I wish I found this before I sunk hours into learning what build prop editing is :p

    Worked like a charm on a DN2103 OxygenOS v11.3 phone.

    Thank you.

    Reboot

    OEM unlocking always wipes your data no need to mention things again and again.
    If you have TWRP first click wipe> format data >yes now reboot back to TWRP again
    now click MTP disable and enable it now see if you are able to copy files.
    nothing to do ... tried twice ... can't recover magisk ... crashes in copy.
    I solved it by using ADB sideload to install Magisk
