Cant get into recovery anymore?!
« on: November 25, 2012, 02:06:54 AM »
Alright, so a few days ago I installed the OTA 4.2 update from TWRP so i could play around with it.

I decided i wanted to switch back to my AOKP backup i made. But when i went to go to recovery (from the bootloader) it didnt work. I got the android with the red "!" inside of a triangle.

So i figured my TWRP must have been wiped somehow. Went and re-flashed it. Same thing. Tried booting from ROM manager, and the same thing still.

I have no idea why i cant get into recovery. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I am rooted running 4.2 JOP40C with my bootloader version being 4.13 and am of course unlocked.

I had the same problem but when I flashed the new version of TWRP with RomTB it worked.

Here's the scoop... any custom recovery will be overwritten by stock recovery after a reboot unless the instruction to do so is removed. If your custom recovery does not specifically do it for you, the file must be manually deleted. In a file explorer, navigate to /system/ and delete the file named "recovery-from-boot.p" This must be done before flashing recovery.
