Yes, do same like previous installation process. It is based on source code released by Nokia. You will enjoy this kernel for sure - having extra CPU Governor and IO schedulers as well so you can customized CPU usages.

Thanks! ive flashed boot and boot_a and all went well, i re-rooted, however how does one boot into the twrp? because booting into recovery just brings the usual "no command" and normal recovery with the buttons. Thanks!

[EDIT] [Edit] it seems i had to use boot_b instead of boot_a because mine was using the b partition, now twrp boots and everything works! thanks

Here is TWRP - almost fully working including decryption as well. So you can take nanodroid backup or flash new ROM. Compiled by a friend named Dhruv, from India.

All option working except SLOT changing.

One caution :
Don't change slot using TWRP. It will Brick your device - which is yet to resolve. And my Nokia 8 is gone now :( may be this is my last post at Nokia.

do we have any custom rom yet? :crying:

FYI, Qualcomm devices have EDL mode that could be used to get bricked devices back to normal. See if that helps, perhaps you need a EDL cable to bring it back alive.

By default EDL is disabled in NB1 kernel. Though, new one I shared - it is already enabled on that. But - for that phone needs to start and in my case, bootloader seems got corrupted. So, my system ( on multiple OS ) not detecting it. Let's wait for other devs. In between - bought a LG G6 ( h872 ), will concentrate on that for now :)

There is no recovery partition in NB1 . Only boot. So, TWRP ( recovery ) is inbuilt in kernel.

I understand now, we cant flash recovery cos its infused into tha kernel.... Thanks man!!!
Wifi working perfectly here..
Also noticed dat sd card can't be accessed in twrp... Everything else working!
Just wish there is a custom rom for NB1.
Thanks bro

If boot partition is getting overwritten by new boot image, all settings are gone again. Need the latest source to recompile from scratch. So, better is - make boot_a active and flash boot_b with modified kernel. Boot_a with stock kernel and when you need TWRP - set boot_b active from fastboot and reboot to recovery. That way you may can update safely. ( Again reminder - Don't use slot change option in TWRP - it will brick your phone )

So does this work on July patch and where can I find the custom kernel? Is it built into the TWRP image file?

If it is just a security patch ( Lesser than 200 MB ) better to skip it. Wait for next big update. If my Nokia 8 recovered / replaced. I will be jumping in again to find out a sticky TWRP method.

Really hoping it works again cos yhu just a big shot for Nokia 8 forum... I used a font and didnt worked well, just boot to recovery n delete tha apk. If there was no working recovery, it would have been a flashing option.
Thanks for tha recovery/kernel buddy... But isnt there no way to have a separate recovery n kernel???

What i dnt get is when i press power key + volume up, it doesnt boot to recovery except i use tha adb function or just hold tha volume up key n connect usb to pc.... Is there fix for SD Card for in twrp yet cos it doesnt get read.
