INSTALLATION:
0. Backup your ROM, your data, your internal storage, and your settings/apps, to an external device
1. Reboot to your custom TWRP-based Recovery
2. The device will automatically reboot into OrangeFox recovery after installation (allow this to happen)
3. Enjoy!

(Note: There is no zip file because this recovery is too big to fit in the ramdisk.

Can you please clarify this?
I assume install .IMG to Ramdisk? It will likely come up, so just want to cover all bases.

I guess the command should be

fastboot boot /path to recovery

But again this wont flash recovery permanently AFAIK, everytime we need to boot into recovery we have to flash it via fastboot

He updated it with fastboot flash, indicating that this is to be installed, however it doesn't appear to work at all at this point.

Can this recovery be decreased in size so that it can be flashed to the ramdisk?

EDIT: It seems twrp is even bigger than this. Twrp img is 30.7mb while this is 29.4mb. Twrp does flash to the ramdisk. If this could be permanently flashed, it would be perfect. If the size needs to be decreased, certain graphics could be moved to the internal storage to save space on the ramdisk.

    OP, you need to actually modify and compile the recovery for different devices. "Porting" it does not entail just editing the model in the device detection script

    I agree, OP should clearly write what this recovery is ported. Also we not recommend using ported recoveries at all! OrangeFox Recovery have tons of device specific vars which inbuilt in recovery blob (like A\B scheme and even screen resolution), so it will work incorrectly. Flashing at one's own risk.

    P.S. OP, if you want build OrangeFox Recovery you are welcom to https://t.me/OrangeFoxBuilding ;)

    Well I was able to fix that by adding OnePlus7Pro to alt Target device in the update binary. But now when I try to flash in twrp it tells me that my recovery partition is to small news flash we don't have recovery partition on a/b devices. And I noticed in the update binary it has a target partition that it is told to install too which is I'm sure everyone can guess.... The recovery partition that doesn't exist on any a/b device. This sounded really good too. One of those to good to be true things....

    So it's not being detected as a/b device clearly. Your update binary needs some work.....
