Damn...I never thought to even ask if it was ok for A12L stock 4a roms...I just seen the '12' and jumped on it. Was gonna wait til after July update to try it. I plan on staying on 12...13 doesn't seem worth the effort+the wait for an A13 twrp...dunno

12 & 12.1(L) works iirc...just need a custom rom like bluspark or fsoc. OP tested 12 for sure. I never got to it tho...

I just scored a $300 trade-in for my 4a, towards a P6a plus a pair of Google Buds A too! They've extended the offer to 9/24...minus the buds tho. The Tensor is a beast too! Highly recommend to all 3a/4a owners!

Isn't the 6a kind of a flop tho?

It's a little bigger. My main reasons besides the $300 trade-in for my 2 year old 4a and a free $100 pair of Google Buds...In a word, TENSOR. U rarely see a flagship chipset/CPU in a mid-range phone and the difference is instantly obvious. It absolutely smokes the 735G .
Tensor also has a UFS 3.1 file system, also much quicker than UFS 2.0...launches/installs are muuch faster...after all, it's got the same chipset as the 6 Pro. The addition of a wide-angle cam/lens is sweet.
It gets better reception...my 4a got 2-3 bars at home vs. 4-5 at home. The sound quality of the phone is much richer and full-bodied sound and better stereo separation. It also has an IP67 dust/water resistant rating ...can handle up to 30 mins. in 1 meter of water. The Mali-G78 MP20 GPU is also a nice upgrade. The charge port is USB 3.1 and just flies on my external SSD. Last but not least is the 4410mAh battery...that like almost a 40% increase to power the hungry and warm running Tensor.

As u can see...I luv this thing...even if I had to pay $400 cash out of pocket. Sure, it's slightly bigger and runs a little warmer but the pros waay outnumber the cons. Btw, it turns out that it uses the dame screen panel as the 6 Pro and is only software locked at 60Hz refresh rate. There already a modder who's unlock 90Hz and work on getting the full 120Hz of the 6 Pro...

    [RECOVERY] TWRP 3.6.1-11 - TeamWin Recovery Project




    Introduction:

    Team Win Recovery Project or TWRP for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It's a fully touch driven user interface , no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

    Key Features:

    Touchscreen driven with real buttons and drag-to-scroll
    XML-based GUI that allows full customization of the layout true theming!
    Settings are saved to the sdcard and persist through reboots
    Ability to choose which partitions to back up and which to restore
    Ability to choose to compress backups now with pigz (multi-core processor support for faster compression times)
    Onscreen keyboard
    Easy selection of internal/external storage

    In addition to the above new features, TWRP features a scripting engine that allows an app to send commands to the recovery for the recovery to perform during startup. We call this scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript. This engine will be put to use immediately in the GooManager app. GooManager will be able to install recoveries automatically for most supported devices. The app will also let you choose to install multiple zips from within Android, wipe, and run a backup.

    We are looking for other talented developers, themers, and device maintainers if they are interested in helping with a free, open source project.

    Use TWRP temporary
    ①Test TWRP, 'fastboot boot twrp.img'


    If you use TWRP permanently(install recovery ramdisk), you use custom kernel
    that supports TWRP(LZMA ramdisk).
    I use my custom kernel(TKernel), some other kernels maybe OK.
    My custom kernel download link is OP.

    ①Test my custom kernel, 'fastboot boot boot.img'
    ②If you don't find any problem, flash custom kernel, 'fastboot flash boot boot.img'
    ③adb push <twrp.img> /sdcard/
    ④reboot to bootloader and fastboot latest boot.img of TWRP
    ⑤Go to Install
    ⑥Touch Install Image
    ⑦Select your TWRP boot.img from /sdcard
    ⑧Install recovery ramdisk
    ⑨Swipe to confirm flash
    ⑩Reboot to recovery and android to verify installation
    ⑪Reinstall magisk, if you want

    To install TWRP, you need LZMA support kernel.
    My custom kernel is here
