    uncheck "update cyanogen recovery" in settings

    Try to boot straight to recovery before rebooting

    For some reason CM12S doesn't respect the on/off toggle for the "update CM recovery" option in Developer Options, it just replaces whatever custom recovery you've flashed with the CM recovery regardless of whether that option is unelected.

    Flash your custom recovery again, but after flashing don't do a normal reboot. After the flash has succeeded disconnect the usb cable, then power down the phone by holding the power button down, once it's powered off use the power + volume down button combo to boot directly into recovery. This first forced reboot into recovery somehow subverts what was keeping it from staying flashed and all subsequent normal reboots into recovery will boot into the custom recovery of your choice.

    I found a solution to the TWRP can't flash problem thanks to @rikardo1979 in another thread. If you can't flash TWRP after upgrading to COS 12.1, this fix will work. I have tried it and I got TWRP on after a lot of failures. The secret is DO NOT use the "fastboot reboot" command after flashing. Unplug, power down, then boot to recovery by hand, see below:

    I AM in a fix.

    When I manually power off and come back with the volume down button, I go into a boot loop. Just received the phone have had it for two days now.

    P. S. I am following the instructions here with TWRP
