This is pixel4xl stockrom.

I have exactly the same symptoms as this person.
When I try to Boot the twrp-3.5.2_10-0-coral.img on this page, it freezes at the first screen of twrp.
That's the Android 10 coral.img. The test version: " twrp-3.5.0-0-test1-coral.img " in the OP is the last version I downloaded and works for me.

Does the test version of TWRP work for installing roms? I would really love to know this! From what I've read I'm guessing since it's in early stages still and there has only been one user report a successful rom install that installing roms isn't working yet...?

Big thanks to BigBiff and the other TWRP crew! You guys rock!!

My bad. The answer to my question is in the op and seems like for now TWRP isn't exactly up and running at 100%. There is a list of what works in the op here. I've never had a device where TWRP didn't work for installing roms. I realize this is because it's in early stages and I'm sure grateful for BigBiff and the rest of the TWRP team! Looking very forward to having a fully functional working TWRP at some point on my coral. Cheers!! 🙏✌️

That would be awesome. Honestly if there's a way to get this installed, I'd consider going back to stock if it made a difference. I'm using ScorpionRom. Their custom recovery doesn't let you install kernels. That's the thing I miss. I think development in general on the Pixel 4XL is largely depending on this problem getting figured out.

So you were having problems being stuck because you tried to flash the wrong img..but now it's working? I guess you have to be running stock android to get results, correct?? I tried both images and neither would work. It's always stuck on the splash screen, then Scorpion recovery replaces it automatically after a reboot.

Just FYI, you don't need TWRP or another custom recovery to install kernels. If rooted you can use EXKM or FKM, and if not rooted you can see if there is an available .img version (rather than .zip) of the kernel and if so flash it through fastboot.

Awesome bigbiff!! I was able to get TWRP test 1 (ver 3.5.1_10-0) on 11 (bliss latest) working finally!!! This is excellent, so far everything is working as expected to work. I'm going to test everything thoroughly but so far, very good!

I was able to flash TWRP, then boot, enter pin to decrypt data, then adb push image to Downloads and install ramdisk from advanced options. I think it was failing before because I didn't use "fastboot flash boot_b twrp.img". I wasn't choosing a slot and I was just using the boot command by itself "fastboot boot twrp.img --slot all".

I had ScorpionRom installed at the of flashing. Everything booted fine after the install and I flashed Cleanslate kernel.

You don't have to flash with adb. Just put the twrp.img on your phones sd card where ever you want it. Then boot via twrp.img and then when you're in twrp go to "install" then click "install image" then find your twrp.img and click on it. Then click "install to ramdisk" and then reboot. You're done.

Guys there is Any twrp working on Android S beta 2?

Thanks!
I won't speak for the dev(s) but you do realize very recently are able to boot and somewhat use TWRP under 11. this means 12 beta may not be ready anytime soon. I honestly do not know, I am not the dev of TWRP so I cannot speak for them but I am pointing out the 11 fact to set expectations accordingly. For me personally, I was only able to get it working under 11 in the last few weeks, so I'd be patient and keep checking back.

If you notice, I was only able to get 11 booted June 29th (few posts above yours). I know the working version was released and working before that date (when I tested/posted on June 29th), but it's been very recent that we are seeing stable 11 TWRP.

And which boot are you installing? If I install a patched magisk boot, then the standard recovery is loaded.
I can't understand how to install it correctly.

Sorry haven't been on here in a while. After updating to the June patch (haven't done it for July yet) I downloaded the full zip and extracted the boot image. Used magisk manager to patch it and then used fast boot to boot into TWRP. From TWRP I selected install image which allowed me to select an image to patch as magisk manager does and selected the just patched magisk boot. After it was patched by TWRP I moved it to my computer and rebooted into fastboot and flashed it. Worked beautifully. Can boot directly into TWRP from the OS either using a root terminal command or a root rebooter app (simple reboot). I can post the logs from the last time I backed up as a sort of proof.

I ran into a new problem today.. Whenever I boot into recovery, TWRP asks for my pin without the touch screen working. I tried plugging in an Xbox controller, but the select language kept getting opened and it was impossible to scroll deliberately due to minor inputs received without pressing buttons/sticks. I sometimes wonder if technology has turned it's back on me.. anyone seen this happen before?

    I'm curious why you posted a split APK manifest for this app? Was it on accident?

    "package_name":"tech.incr.vulkanandroid"

    Hi. I followed the instructions to the letter and was able to flash twrp on my pixel4xl.. but, when I boot back into recovery, my touchscreen doesn't work and I can't enter in my passcode to get back into twrp. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    [RECOVERY] TWRP 3.5.0_10-0 - TeamWin Recovery Project [/B]




    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.

    Source Code:

    GitHub - https://github.com/TeamWin/android_bootable_recovery

    Gerrit Instance - http://gerrit.twrp.me

    If you have made your own TWRP build for an unsupported device, please let us know. We might add your build to the list of unofficial builds. Bear in mind that we are working hard to add more devices and we may add your device to our official build list later.

    Old info:

    Hello, this is a test build for coral users (will work on crosshatch/blueline later).

    So far I have decryption working, touch, adb and backup and restore seems to work. Super partition volumes can be mounted, and the super partition can be backed up.

    TWRP seems to be pretty stable now as of test 5. Missing features include adb sideload and repacking recovery which I will be working on in the upcoming months. Android 11 will be supported when stable APIs have been release and we have time to update to that release.

    well.if you have a zip file would be even better

    Repacking is still being worked on. Fastboot only is workable. I have mentioned this in the thread.
    For people who want to know, I am working on ramdisk issues I am having before repacking.

    Please don't leave passive aggressive comments in the future.

    Hello, I released a new test image:

    - fix restoring of persist partition
    - fix restoring of super partition

    So is there a way to restore said backed up super partition?
    Btw thanks for the work you've put in so far, it's much appreciated.

    There has been a fix posted to our gerrit and merged. I am working on a ramdisk issue and will put a new test build that allows restore of super.

    Hello, I was able to get repacking working, however you need to use a kernel with LZMA ramdisk support. I am using Kirisakura-FLORAL_5.2.2.zip for testing.

    Also I am now using @Freak07 FLORAL kernel as a base for the fastboot image in order to support the newer DTBO image from R.

    Please see the download in the FP.

    You can repack TWRP into the boot ramdisk with this version, and reboot to recovery is working. I need to test magisk next.
