    Greetings,

    The volume down button of my H850 is damaged, so I am unable to enter recovery mode and boot TWRP using the buttons. My aim is to stick TWRP to the recovery partition, so I have to boot into it after flashing. The phone's bootloader is unlocked.

    When in fastboot mode I try to boot directly from the image I get this:

    Code:
    Y:\android\LG G5 H850>fastboot boot twrp-3.2.3-2-h850.img
    downloading 'boot.img'...
    OKAY [  0.648s]
    booting...
    FAILED (remote: unknown command)
    finished. total time: 0.669s
    Anyone knows how to solve that "unknown command" issue?

    Thanks!

    Did you download it from https://dl.twrp.me/h850/ and check the download with the PGP key?

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. I always download from there to make sure I have the latest official version... I only checked the version 3.2.3-2 checksum (SHA256 and MD5) and it's OK. I also tried a bunch of other versions... all failed to boot:

    Code:
    Y:\android\LG G5 H850>adb reboot bootloader
    
    Y:\android\LG G5 H850>fastboot boot twrp-3.0.2-0-h850.img
    downloading 'boot.img'...
    OKAY [  0.537s]
    booting...

    I'd contact TWRP (post the problem at https://github.com/TeamWin/Team-Win-Recovery-Project/issues). I've never had any version of TWRP fail due to a bug on any phone, but looking at that page, they do get them. I guess the perfect developer hasn't been born yer. (I used to joke that I was a bug developer, and got paid to find and fix my own bugs.)
