  1. Hi!

    I have the following problem:

    First: Unlocking bootloader –> was fine.

    Then – Flashing TWRP-Recovery:
    It didn't work immediately. I tried the "twrp-lux-2.8.7-v2.img" as recommended –> couldn't enter recovery. I tried "twrp-lux-3.0.0-r2.img" –> the same. I tried the "v2" again and I don't know why, but entering TWRP recovery suddenly worked. Great!

    When I entered the recovery the first time my first action was making a backup. It was successful. After that, I wanted to reboot and now it shows the screen: "Warning Bootloader unlocked …." and the phone stucks. It doesn't boot. I tried different things in TWRP (wiping, restoring my backup, ….), but no chance …

    Are there any hints for me? I don't know, what I can do …
