WHAT IS TWRP?
Team Win Recovery Project is a custom recovery for Android devices.
It allows you to back up and restore your data, flash custom ROMs to your device, repair broken file systems, and root your device.

hello guys in last few days ME and my friend Dhruv worked so hard to finally got Twrp ready to use so please makr sure to hit thanks ( it's free and easy way to help me )

Notice1:

both phones they share same kernel and tree and both have A/B partitions, this twrp based on nokia7+

Notice2:

take a backup for your data and your important files or folders before you start your Warrenty will be lost
I'm not responsible for any damage in your phone but I'll always and as usual do my best to help you in case something goes wrong
Notice3:

to reboot recovery from buttons follow this steps:
first of all you have to plug your phone to pc or charger and switch off your phone totally then press and hold volume up and power at the same time untill the bootloader`s unlock message disappear after that release power button and keep holding volume up
there you are;)

Ok cool but this nokia phone can't be bootloaded into; it's always locked, even if you tick on allow oem unlocking in dev settings fastboot will tell you it doesn't have permission. Whats the purpose of this? Is there some kind of way to get past it that I am not aware of?

You need to unlock bootloader, it is a paid service....

@Maherabed1986 can you add link to the bootloader unlock to your guide?

I have not seen this service anywhere, I did see that a page containing this service was deleted due to paid services, though. Regardless, I can imagine only a few handfuls of people being able to make use of this, which is a shame.. I hope in the future some method of unlocking it at home gets discovered, but that probably won't happen knowing nokia.

I also hope, not because $5 is much for it, but I rather do it myself w/o giving my IMEI or any other infos to someone. As it was on Nexus devices.

I'm new here and I don't know much about phones but I'll ask a dumb question anyway. Can't you do something about unlocking the bootloader now that you have a working rooted version w/ twrp ? If the answer is no please elaborate on why not.

Because no one still now how to generate serial number and Imei number to get unlock file only one who knows that and he selling it for others and others resell it to me /you/ and othere users

@Maherabed1986 Thank you for getting this device rooted. Why does Magisk has Preserve force encryption selected by default?

Is the Nokia 6.1 encrypted by default? I had many Android devices and none were encrypted by default. I didn't know this Nokia was encrypted until I saw it on Magisk.

@Maherabed1986 Thanks so much for your efforts, I would like to contribute a dump of my boot.img for my model of Nokia 6.1 (TA-1045) but the instructions didn't quite work the way I expected, when I attempt to temp boot into the bootloader linked for the Nokia 6.1 it just boots into regular Android and then trying to su in the adb shell it tells me the command can't be found (because I am not rooted yet, of course). Am I missing something? How can I help?

Just tired this on my USA Nokia 6.1 TA-1045 ... Used Twrp-N6.1-TA-1045.img (md5 6e9b859f6fe6138aa14beaea6cbdb26d ) in slot a and b using the commands provided and now my phone can't get passed the NOKIA screen. Any ideas?

After doing a "fastboot -w", I was able to boot into TWRP but I am bootlooping when trying to boot into the system. Will do further research
