    The only way to update from COS12 to COS12.1 without losing system settings is to use the OTA.

    If you use the full zip, system will be wiped.

    Your choice - don't be bored and do some work or start again from scratch.

    If I upgrade with OTA using stock recovery, can I install TWRP with the app flashify without using PC?

    Thank you for your reply.

    When is it necessary do "bootloader unlocked"?
    If I flash stock ROM, after of this, Is it necessary unlock another time the bootloader?

    My problem now is that when I use fastboot for flash the recovery TWRP I don't get any error (say OK) But when I restart the phone in recovery mode I only can see the stock recovery, not TWRP. I've disable CM Recovery Protection and I enable USB Debugging before of flash it.

    I use this comand:
    fastboot flash recovery twrp-

    but always I get the stock recovery. Any problem with windows 8.1.1 x64 or driver?
    I'm using a windows 8 without update and samsung driver

    I don't know what is the problem.

    You need to be rooted to use Flashify and to root, you need TWRP installed...

    The best time to unlock your bootloader is before you install anything. Once its unlocked, it should stay unlocked unless you relock it yourself.

    Disabling CM recovery protection and enabling USB debugging are necessary, but to get TWRP to 'stick' after fastboot flashing it, you need to reboot directly into recovery once too.

    Fastboot flash TWRP again, then disconnect the usb cable.

    Switch off the phone by holding the power button down.

    When it's off, use the power + volume down button combo to boot directly into recovery.

    Reboot system from TWRP.

    Amazing, works very fine! thank you! you are the best!!!! :D

    When it opens TWRP I get this message:

    "TWRP has detected an unmodified partition.

    TWRP can leave your partition unmodified to make it easier for you to take official updates. TWRP will be unable to prevent the stock ROM from replacing from replacing TWRP and will not offer to root your device. installing zips or performing adb operations may still modify the system partition.

    Never show this screen during boot again
    Keep Read only
    Swipe to Allow Modifications"

    What I need do now?
    Swipe to allow modifications?

    is it a problem of TWRP is it necessary another version of TWRP?

    As I'm still using Unofficial TWRP I haven't seen that message but, If you read the "System read only option" section of this, you'll be able to decide what's the best option for you ;)

    BTW, TWRP 2.8.7 does not update the baseband from 230 to 241 on the OPO We need TWRP 2.8.6 to do it. You can get TWRP 2.8.6 at this Link.

    Thank you. This is solved now.
    But I have another problem xD

    I'm trying to flash "cm-12.1-20150831-NIGHTLY-bacon" from TWRP and I only get the message: "Patching system image unconditionally..." I'm waiting with this message 30minutes!

    I suppose that it doesn't works. How to fix it?

    Is it possible flash cm-12.1-20150831-NIGHTLY-bacon with fastboot? any solution for fix it with TWRP? Is it a problem of my phone? I'm buyed in china! is not the European version!

    Thank you!

    PS in TWRP console, I can read before of "Patching system image unconditionally..." this: "E: Unable to mount 'system' . Is this important?

    No, as long as you don't wipe everything, system won't be wiped. I flashed full zip and everything was intact.

    So doesn't the line:
    block_image_update("/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system", package_extract_file("system.transfer.list"), "system.new.dat", "system.patch.dat");
    with a full system.new.dat (which contains system.img) and no data in system.patch.dat mean that \system is being replaced?

    As I said, I flashed full zip file and did not choose wipe data/media etc, only cache, hence no data lost.

    Finally I've solved alone xD

    For don't get the message "patching system image unconditionally..." when you flashing, you need:

    1) do wipes
    2) flash oxygen via twrp.
    3) do wipes
    4) flash cm-1+ official or cm-nightly and works fine.

    kind regards
