can i use im beta 7 the advanced wipe function to make a clean flash of a custom rom (AICP) over a oos 11 system?
i read that the wipe function must not be used because something is wrong with the assignment?

Tried to install full system update (11.0.9.9) with Oxygen Updater using twrp option and failed. Twrp made backup and finished without any update.

does anybody have 10.0.8.8 IN11BA stock recovery .img file and could upload it?
If you're on 8.8 OOS you can pull it yourself using payload dumper. It's good practice to be able to obtain it yourself.

My root guide in guides and discussion can show you exactly how...

Then just flash it in fastboot.

Yesterday tried to restore my OOS backup after tinkering with a custom ROM. There were no errors when I took the backup. Data restored fine without errors too, but the system didn't boot afterwards, it was boot looping. I did a wipe - factory reset before restoring. Lost about two hours trying to restore the backup so that it would boot and all was in vain. So I had to MSM eventually 🙂 I used beta 7 for backing up and restoring.

Just curious. Did you follow the instructions on the 2nd post?

Of course. I removed the pin so that the system was unencrypted before backing it up. Then I did a factory reset before restoring.

I have a backup phone (Samsung A5 2017), which also has a TWRP installed. I backed up that phone and restored it over a dozen of times, so I'm kinda familiar with the process.

In this case I could eventually still install a custom ROM on a clean system and it would boot and work fine. However, the restored OOS backup never boots.

The process as explained in post #2, when switching ROMs, is to do a format of /data, not a factory reset.

I did a format too (where it says type "yes" to continue). As I said, I tried to restore the backup over two hours multiple times, on a clean/wiped/completely formatted system. It does restore the backup without errors, but it never boots. I could still install a custom ROM though and it booted just fine.

Same problem here, but with custom ROM.

When you backed up OOS, what partitions did you backup, other than data?

I backed up all partitions, except "persist" and "super partition". When restoring, I tried to restore all of them and also restored "data" only. It didn't make any difference.
Historically was a format required?

I mean it's going to nuke the device anyway?

I'll be honest I never bothered with Nand back ups but to me it sort of defeats the object if you need to wipe prior to a restore?

    I have seen a few roms where the developer mentioned fast boot only myself with no mention of twrp. Personally, I stick with Oxygen because I can't find one that has native call record baked in.
    Yeah, but those ROMs aren't built with a Meta-inf. Fastboot only is just a zip with the .img files. Roms with a meta folder are flashable in twrp.
    And, devs don't mention twrp because when the ROMs were first created, we didn't HAVE twrp

    I know this works but my point was to flash GAPPS Stock to replace LineageOS System apps. So I need to resize system on wipe, but system does not show up on wipe, only dalvik cache, vendor and etc, and I checked system on mount and I see another one called system_ext which I cannot check. Thanks for helping tho.

    My Wipe looks like this but in English: No system at all

    Not trying to be rude, but you need to rethink what you are doing, and understand that you have already been given the correct information.

    So take a step back. Think about partitions. Do you know how they are structured and are formed? They file you are trying to fit has to go IN the system partition, which contains the OS and all the other things the device uses to actually run what you see on the screen (everything). It (the system partition) has a limited size, as it is pre-made. It also cannot be re-sized, as that would change the signature, and this is SAR (system-as-root, as will all A11+ devices). you cannot modify the system partition, as you will BREAK the system partition.

    Then, and again apologies for this, you said something quite bad... You asked about formatting the system partition, so you can fit your file. The problem is, if you delete the system partition, you can't boot. No, you cannot just re-flash system, and, even if you could, it would replace the partition you wrote for gapps, as this all works a one IMAGE, not a file-based system you might be thinking of.

    So stop wasting your time, it will not work. You MUST choose a smaller package. Listen when people say something, we are not just trying to shrug you off, but 95% of the people do the same ****, and we don't want to repeat after years and years of not only learning and knowing the stuff, but even from telling people and expecting them to listen/learn.

    So, no, you can't do it.

    Thanks for reply. I see some members flashing custom roms; are they doing that without wiping the system partition first?
    Yes. The old days where wiping system is necessary is no more because the partitions inside super partition will automatically be destroyed and recreated when flashing.

    TWRP for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro



    TWRP is an open source, community project. TWRP development is done by a large support community with many people who are willing to answer questions and help people with their devices either through our IRC channel or on forums like xda-developers, and zulip-chat.

    A custom recovery is used for installing custom software on your device. This custom software can include smaller modifications like rooting your device or even replacing the firmware of the device with a completely custom "ROM".

    You can find the source code for TWRP at github.com/teamwin/android_bootable_recovery/

    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    /*
    *
    * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this recovery.
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
    *
    */
