@CyberWalkMaN, are you planning on eventually submitting your 3.2.1-0 builds for official support? I'm asking because I built my own TWRP for both pollux and pollux_windy (see the BasketBuild link in my signature) from my dedicated device trees, not directly from Lineage source repos. I was thinking of creating my own thread and submitting my repos to TeamWin, given enough positive feedback, especially since only pollux_windy has an official TWRP page and it's most recent official version is 3.0.2-0. I've built TWRP for a number of devices since version 3.2 was released and submitted them for official support.

Yes, I plan to do it this week. I think that our device trees are cleaner and more relevant for this -

Is already out of date?
I do not see any TWRPs for pollux*

What is a difference between unofficial and official builds?

Before official builds come out, TeamWin runs official preview builds to make sure that the images their Jenkins builder churns out are actually functional and true to the code submitted by the developer, relative to the developer's own unofficial builds.

Once everything is confirmed to be working the same as unofficial builds, TeamWin runs the actual official builds, which get linked on their site and made available on the official TWRP app. Official support also ensures that future version of TWRP will be attempted to be built using existing repos without the need for the developer's further input unless and until the source repo become too outdated, at which point a new branch would need to be created with code that follows a more recent android API.

There must be something wrong with my pollux_windy. :crying: :D

Flashing v3.2.1.0 causes a TWRP boot looping.

The only way to boot LineageOS 14.1 was flashing again TWRP-3.1.1-pollux-FOTA-20170928.zip from CaHbKaUp.

Any idea what's going on?

BTW, thanks for updating TWRP! :good:

Edit:
Finally solved the problem.

Downloaded TWRP 3.2.1.0 from official page and I've followed the dd Install Method even though my tablet is not rooted (su command wasn't recognized -su: not found- but dd worked in TWRP Terminal).
