you can redirect kernel logs during boot time using USB serial port. If the phone doesn't even boot up to a stable state where the ADB commands can be used, one might be interested in redirecting the kernel messages to some places where they can be seen. This is to leverage the "console=" command for the kernel. For different devices, there may be ...

The risks that are commonly mentioned, as RMarkwald said, are bricking your device and not being able to receive OTA updates. In my opinion, though, if you install a custom recovery such as TWRP, is because you want more control and flexibility than those provided by a stock device. Regarding privacy... it must be said that, very often, a mere combination ...

I don't believe the bootloader will be unlocked, that'll remain locked. Risks? Bricking the device, not being able to take an OTA update are the big ones. If you flash something not meant for your device, you could brick/cause issues requiring you to get back to stock. I'd recommend making sure you know how to flash and get back to 100% stock before ...

Yeah, I had the same error. The US XT1644 variant can't use the boot.img for the XT1643 and below. I was able to root by installing SuperSU. Run this command: fastboot boot twrp-3.0.2-0-athene.img Make sure you copy the SuperSU zip file in the /sdcard/TWRP folder on your device. Then when twrp loads, you can just pick the zip file and install.

Just reinstall SuperSu the same way but hit NO at the PopUp. It mentions this at the bottom of the install for SuperSU, I missed it at first as well. One love :)

First thing flash stock ROM to check the issue and most probably in these cases its a hardware fault as you described you have dead spots on touch they can be due to pressure of some kind which can also cause touch to get damaged too , to be sure flash with factory/stock ROM and see if things change or remain same

So, I got it working again. The method was to not flash using fastboot. I actually booted the recovery remotely with fastboot boot recovery.img Then flashed cyanogenmod (the system) and gapps from the external SD card. On reboot, the system updated itself and it's working again. And I can boot into cyanogen recovery mode (but not TWRP, as before). Seems ...

Can you access the phone using ADB while the phone is in recovery? Also is it possible to set it back to stock rom? That would be the first thing I would do and go from there

Fastboot is so unpredictable, ouch. Try the following steps. Check if your cable is the stock one. If not, at least make sure it supports file transfer in fastboot mode. Check that USB drivers are installed properly Try to rename the recovery file to just "recovery.img", I know it looks stupid, but it did the trick for me. Finally, * the device won't ...
