Unofficial TWRP 3.1.0-0 Moto G5 (cedric)

Latest TWRP changelog :

New features of 3.1.1-0 (adb backup, tweaked MTP startup routines and plenty of bug fixes - for full changelog)

twrp-3.1.1-0-cedric.img


Working/Bugs

I have just tested on 16 GB variant and all seems to be working. If something is broken lemme know.

IMPORTANT NOTE :
  • At first boot twrp will ask for "Swipe to allow modifications for /system" and if you choose to allow it system partition will get modified. So if you choose to reboot back to OS without performing anything in twrp, the OS won't boot (as verity check is enabled in stock OS/kernel) . To avoid this you have to flash either SuperSU or flash any of the verity disabler zips there in xda

  • Force encryption is enabled by default in stock OS and twrp will successfully decrypt /data at first boot if all goes well

    If in case decryption doesn't go fine, twrp will popup a dialog box asking for password and that means decryption went wrong and you would need to wipe data once via twrp wipe options and reboot back to twrp for functioning of /data


Installation Guide


  • Make sure you have unlocked bootloader
  • Reboot to bootloader
  • fastboot flash recovery twrp-****.img (if you want permanent flash) or fastboot boot twrp-****.img (if you want temporary
    boot)

xt1670 model

Hi Santhosh
Will this TWRP work on Moto G5 model xt1670?
If so, can it be rooted using twrp temporary boot?

EDIT: I have tried this several time, I'm always getting stuck at boot, after the first data wipe, only solution is to install stock system again.
I have the Modem Version: M8937_8000.122.02.40R, 32GB
I'm offering to test ;)
Thanks

After installing TWRP my Phone stucks at the "Your device has been unlocked" screen. My system seems to be gone. I've downloaded the image from the other thread and tried to sideload it, but twrp says it's in the wrong format. TWRP boots fine
(Anyone who can upload a fully working NANDROID or sth like that?)

What can i do :/?

Edit: Solved. Unzipped the firmware and flashed manually via fastboot. Working fine!
But then again at the startup of the recovery, there's the encryption message. What to wipe now, that it'll work? Wiping /data ends in boot loop...

Did you tried wiping data, and formatting data? Remember that wiping /data is where your apps and settings are stored, and formatting /data/media is the massive storage... Maybe if you wipe both it would work

After
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
I'm booting into recovery, cancel the encryption password verification, swipe to allow modification, wipe & format data -> Bootloop

Flashing system (and only system, not recovery etc) -> Phone boots normally, twrp ist gone ...

Greetings

    note if you are going to encrypt I dont think it shows the android is now encrypting logo - it just stays on the boot animation - depending on how much data you have will depend how long it takes for the phone to boot - Do not restart your phone or you will loose data
    Make a backup first!
