In our review Smartisan Nut Pro 2 performed very well, so we decided to send a sample to our GizROM Team. After many attempts Francko76 successfully created a TWRP for this device!

Tutorial

Rooted device:

  1. Download Flashify form Play Store;
  2. run this app (requires root);
  3. download the TWRP image;
  4. tap "recovery image";
  5. "choose a file";
  6. select the TWRP;
  7. flash;
  8. reboot the phone in TWRP;
  9. format data.

No root:

We'll need to enter in EDL mode (Qualcomm HS_USB QDloader 9008). If you have an EDL Cable:

  1. Turn off your phone;
  2. connect the cable;
  3. press the cable's button for few seconds;
  4. install Qualcomm drivers;
  5. connect your phone to PC. 

You can also use a normal USB cable, but it will be broken to enter EDL (see  this tutorial).

Now your phone is in Qualcomm HS_USB QDloader 9008.

  1. download and unzip our root tools;
  2. run Qfil;
  3. select "Flat Build";
  4. choose the Programmer: "Browse"-> "prog_emmc_ufs_firehose_Sdm660_ddr.elf";
  5. click on "Load XML" and select "rawprogram_unsparse.xml", then "patch0.xml";
  6. click "Download";
  7. wait: QFIL will notify an error, it's normal;
  8. reboot your phone in TWRP;
  9. format data.

Now your Smartisan Nut Pro 2 has working a TWRP recovery!

If you want to roll back to stock ROM just flash this via Qfil!
