I would like to install Cyanogenmod 13 on my Oppo Find 7a.
I am following the instructions from CM wiki. I am using a laptop with Linux (LMDE2).
I fail to install a TWRP recovery. Fastboot seems to succeed (it does not print any error message). But then, when I try to boot in recovery mode, I still have the original recovery from ColorOS. I also tried CM recovery, but then I can't even boot in recovery mode (I get stuck on the "Oppo" logo).
I tried anyway to install CM13 using the original recovery. But I get a message "Installation failed".
Do you have any idea of why it fails?
EDIT : I add details on what is happening.
- When I run
fastboot boot twrp.img, the fastboot screen gets brighter. But then nothing happens, it stays as is, with "fastboot" written on the screen. Then, I hard reboot my phone and hold the keys to get into recovery mode. I get the stock recovery.
- When I run
fastboot flash recovery twrp.imgand then
fastboot reboot(holding the key to get into recovery mode), the phone reboot, I get the screen with "Oppo" written, then the phone reboot a second time. For this second time, it boots in normal mode (although I was holding the special key for recovery mode).
Once I booted in normal mode, if I try to boot in recovery mode, I get the stock recovery. It seems to be expected, according to TWRP website, since some devices automatically replace the recovery mode by their own recovery mode.
