I just purchased and trying to get rooted.
There appeared to be no lock on the device as indicated ROM
So I uploaded the TWRP image
# fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.2-0-addison-eng-modified.img target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes sending 'recovery' (14020 KB)... OKAY [ 0.055s] writing 'recovery'... (bootloader) Image not signed or corrupt OKAY [ 0.201s] finished. total time: 0.256s
And then boy, was I surprised to find out that I should of uploaded a copy of the image to the sdcard "first", before I wiped it clean.
Now I can only get to the ROM image splash screen w/menu or the TWRP setup. TWRP ask for that image file locally. There is no externally accessible standard sized sdcard slot on the device (onboard 64gb or 2 nano sim slots only) Note: I have no nano sized sdcard to attempt
I tried to push the image up to the device
# adb get-devpath usb:2-2 # adb push -p /home/Downloads/twrp-3.0.2-0-addison-eng.img mtp://[usb:2-2]/ error: device '(null)' not found # adb push -p /home/Downloads/twrp-3.0.2-0-addison-eng.img mtp://[usb:002,038]/ error: device '(null)' not found
The file system appears to be in write protect, but I can write a test txt file to the sdcard via TWRP shell and vi.
note: in the TWRP shell, I can see SELinux is active
How do I push the proper image file via USB to my Moto X play 1635-3, or any other recovery method?
adb push -p /home/brads/Downloads/twrp-3.0.2-0-addison-eng.img /sdcard/
got the image uploaded to the onboard sdcard. Now my file system is not 'write only' as well. Since the push, I can use the GUI to transfer image files back and forth like cake. The push must of unstuck something I guess.
Image failed to load when I tried to install to /boot partition from TWRP.
Trying suggestion from below now.
