Great app. I am hesitant to flash boot partitions with it, but otherwise does everything my custom recovery does, only more convenient, though I leave it on there in case of a no boot situation. After Chainfire let me freeload Pro on this and one other app, I went Pro on all 3 apps I am currently using as I have found his apps very useful and he is not greedy. All are functional in the free version without crapware added.
Chainfire, thank you so much. This app is a saviour for those who do not have a custom recovery. Flashed Xposed without a problem. I'll donate to you in the future, you earned it. Big thanks again man
I have flashed radios and made backups so far. I went back to stock recovery because from what I have read I will not need a custom anymore. Looking forward to using it to flash the next update (either the full package or the OTA if it comes fast enough).
This was the only way for me to installing a custom ROM, since my device has a locked bootloader. I do wish that a) wipe would not be put at the bottom every time, and b) FlashFire would reinstall itself after a wipe. Otherwise, awesome work, and thanks! 😁 Also, when will this time bomb actually go off?
I was hesitant at first, but after reading about how to install a factory update, I decided to try it. Worked like a dream. Downloaded the factory image, followed instructions, unchecked recovery and hit the button. Saw how it was working and then it booted, then it stop booting for a few seconds, then started booting again and it took like 6 minutes, then booted up. Worked great. Still rooted and have twrp. Great work guys
It used to work, always. Well, this time, I tried to flash Android O DP3 OTA update. I taped the FLASH button and it turned my Nexus 6P to black screen. I waited about 5 mins and nothing changed, please fix that.
- Add support for multi-stage OTAs
- Fix possible NPE during OTA uncrypt
- Fix logic failure during OTA uncrypt
- Fix unsupported root detection
- Fix root detection sometimes failing
- Prefer system-supplied reboot binary to our own
