    hi im encountering some problems with your tutorial. all goes well till the “fastboot boot recovery.img” where im promted:

    C:\adb>fastboot boot recovery.img
    downloading ‘boot.img’…
    OKAY [ 0.781s]
    FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)
    finished. total time: 0.793s

    and i can’t access no twrp recovery. it just boots saying the device can not be trusted and asking if i want to continue which boots to normal phone, i can shutdown the phone or enter emui’s recovery.
