Karoo2 fastboot/recovery mode

Post by atoy40 »


does anyone have informations of how can we reboot - if possible - Karoo2 in fastboot mode ? and is there any custom recovery existing ?
I've try adb reboot bootloader, but it seems to reboot in normal mode
If I try adb reboot recover, the recover just say "no command".

In the developer options, it's indicated that the bootloader is already unlock.

I can confirm that it reboots normaly after the "reboot bootloader" command.
Doesn't seem to have fastboot implemented.

My bootloader status is also "unlocked", if i can trust the menu.

What's your goal?

I'am trying to install Gapps via TWRP.
I know there was a TWRP-Version for Karoo 1 but i can't get from somewhere (all links dead). And I am uncertain if it would work for Karoo2 also.

There was an XDA Project named TWRP Builder which was universal for all android devices (even the unsupported ones). I try to get it to run to have a TWRP Version for the Karoo2.
