Welcome to TWRP for Lenovo Tab M10 X505X. Make sure you read the entire post carefully before you proceed with installation.
- Install ADB and Fastboot. Refer to this link if you need help installing ADB and Fastboot.
- Unlock the bootloader. Refer to this link if you need help unlocking the bootloader.
Flash the TWRP image from bootloader.
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Do not reboot the system yet. Remove the connection from the device. Hold the power button until it turns off. Then turn it on again with the recovery combo: Power button + Volume Up + Volume Down.
Once booted into the TWRP recovery mode, if you want to flash it permanently(otherwise it will be replaced with stock recovery after a reboot), install Magisk from recovery.
You can goto advanced option in TWRP and use the "ADB Sideload" option to sideload the Magisk zip file. In case sideload doesnt work, use adb to push the Magisk zip file to /tmp and then install the zip normally.
Do not push the zip file to /data. The data partition is encrypted and any damage done messing with the data partition will not be my responsibility. You have been warned.
TWRP image for X505X
From android 9.0 onwards, the data partition is force encrypted and is not available to the TWRP. This is not much of an issue because update zips and ROM flashes usually dont use the data partition. So the data partition is encrypted.
This is the first version
Support for decryption of data partition permanently/temporarily.
A custom rom for this device if I get enough support.
I have spent a lot of time on this project. Consider buying me a coffee or donating. It will be great support.
Feel free to ask me if you encounter any problems.
For those who are curious. This is the device tree I ported for X505X.
