What's this?

This is TeamWin Recovery Project for our ZUK Z2 Pro (z2_row, Z2121).

I recently became the maintainer for the official TWRP images, and as such I am opening this thread to centralize all support/questions.

Known Issues
  • ....

Requirements
  • Unlocked bootloader
  • Common sense and a Z2 Pro :P

Downloads, changelogs, installation info
All of this info can be found at the official info page.
If you use fastboot to install TWRP, you may have to specify a vendor ID in the commandline, like so:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x2b4c flash recovery twrp.img
fastboot -i 0x2b4c reboot
Frequently Asked Questions
...

Based on varotone thread for z2_plus.

this may not be an issue of twrp but more an issue of switching different roms. Some roms change partitions that become incompatible when switching back to roms that dont touch these partitions..

Partions used and TWRP on ZUK Z2 Pro with AospExtended v5.1
Hi

I asked this already but probably in the wrong thread . So :

Until today I used TWRP 3.1.0.0 (TWRP3.1.0.0_ZUK_Z2_pro.img) on my ZUK Z2 Pro with AospExtended v5.1. In that version TWRP shows these partitions in the backup menu:

Data
Cache
System
System Image
Boot
Recovery
Bootloader (1 MB)
Firmware (81 MB)
Persist
Splash (32 MB)
Rpm
Tz
xbl (3 MB)
msdap
apdp
cmnlib64
cmnlib
keymaster
bluetooth
dsp (4 MB)
pmic
sec
hyp
factory
devcfg

Now I installed TWRP 3.2.1.0 (twrp-3.2.1-0-z2_row.img from the TWRP download website) and now TWRP shows these partitions in the backup menu:

Boot
Cache
Recovery
System
System Image
Data
Firmware
EFS

Now I'm confused -- why is the list of partitons different ?

And, more important: Can I restore my Z2 with TWRP 3.2.1.0 and the backups created with TWRP 3.1.0.0 (I selected all partitions to backup)?

regards

Bernd

New build:

* Add support for a pseudo-vendor partition (mount /factory as /vendor) which allows us to install ROMs with partial/full treble support.
* Fixup partitions sizes. Thanks to @DD3Boh.
* Update to O-mr1 based kernel (cosmedd/[email protected]) which also fixes the Aroma installer upside down bug.

Due to the change in the size of the partitions you should redo your backups, if you have any.

Enjoy! ^_^
