Hello everyone, will that tutorial work for Umidigi A3 Pro? Or is there a specific thread for that phone. I have just received the phone and haven't started it yet - is there a way to make a full backup of the phone or I can use any of the stock roms after that? Thanks

Doesn't work. Tried it. Didnt brick or anything just messed up the stock recovery. I just flashed  ...

Thanks, Aksel. We will wait for the TWRP...

TWRP for F1 - no data partition is mounted and no root access.

Can you share screenshot and link to the twrp used?
I saw that twrp is built without system as root support which is probably one of the reason it won't decrypt data
I looked at ghost modified twrp and it does use non system as root stuff

I turned off userdata encryption in the vendor\etc\fstab.mt6771 file and formatted the data partition in TWRP - now there is access to the data partition.

I know this works but is not a good solution since if you decide to update the phone it will always re encrypt your device. And you'll always have to modify the fstab and if you forgot to modify fstab after update you'll have to redo the procedure with wipe afterwards. The best solution would be to actually get decryption to work in twrp.
