  1. Well, it all worked fine until the “Flash the latest SuperSu via TWRP recovery to get root access on Xcover”. I get “failed to mount the SD card (I/O error)”. Is there any way around this? Thanks, Wolf

  2. And now I seem to have soft bricked it. I wasn’t sure that the TWRP install worked, so I redid it. Now I can only get into the download mode. Sigh….

  3. All I can say is this doesn’t work. Followed your instructions to the letter and the phone reboots fine. But when you try to boot into recovery it just goes to the start screen and stalls there.
