So, I understand that you can flash a custom recovery using DD. I have done this on my Nexus 6p, with an unlocked bootloader.

My carrier is Verizon, which loves to lock down bootloaders. I have another phone, an HTC One M7, which has been branded by Verizon. I have gained temporary root access using Kingroot. I am wondering if maybe I could flash a TWRP build to /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery. I am afraid that this will brick it though.

Even if it flashed and booted successfully, would it even work to flash a custom ROM?

Thanks for any helpful answers

  • If I remember correctly, that was one of the suggested ways in lower versions of TWRP recovery. Unfortunately I'm not really sure if that works under S-ON. I would say back things up just in case. – Andy Yan Sep 5 '17 at 0:41
  • @AndyYan lol Its worthless to me anyway as its pretty hard to use without any custom ROM. Just trying to do this to maybe give it some worth – Tyler Richardson Sep 5 '17 at 0:42
