  1. When I boot into the TWRP on my Umidigi One, the screen remains black. The cell phone vibrates when I click on a certain point as if the TWRP was running, but without a graphical interface.
    I enabled the developer option and also gave permission for OEM unlocking there.
    I tried to flash the TWRP using both Fastboot and the TWRP app. I tried both the TWRP for the Umidigi One and the Umidigi One Plus. Always the same result, the screen stays always dark when I boot into TWRP no matter if I use the button-configuration or boot directly through the TWRP.-App into recovery.
    I have the latest stock firmware from the Umidigi site installed. The cell phone works normally and boots normally into the system. Only the TWRP doesn’t work. Is the TWRP perhaps no longer compatible with it?
