Install TWRP Recovery on any Android

Install TWRP Recovery on any Android

Or TWRP Recovery Project TeamWin is a custom recovery which gives us a lot of options compared to standard recovery sites, which are rather restrictive.

What we do with TWRP recovery?

Normally, the recovery of the standard phone can not do anything, only install signed official updates or reset the phone.
With TWRP custom recovery or other recovery we can install any rom, kernel, boot image, application, etc. In addition to TWRP Recovery can back up the entire phone, we can mount a partition that you can access on your phone, we can access storage, and more.

Why not ask manufacturers to start TWRP on your phone?

Security considerations. The truth is that a standard recovery with a locked bootloader will provide good security, while a custom recovery is doubtful, for those who know not what they do.

Who needs TWRP recovery?

This custom recovery does not require everyone, but only those who want to install another version of Android, kernel change, to backup, etc.

Multiple operating systems on the same phone.

Using a custom recovery, it can do dual boot configurations or multi boot. To see with this is done, you can follow the tutorial: MultiROM multiple operating systems on the same phone

Before you must unlock bootloader.

So we can flash any ROM to your phone, you must unlock the bootloader. To see how to unlock bootloader, watch the tutorial: Unlock bootloader Android phone.
Why do we need to install TWRP recovery?
1. The tool tutorial unlocking bootloader
2. The TWRP image for your phone.
3. PC and a data cable.

About Cristian Cismaru

I like everything related to IT&C, I like to share the experience and information I accumulate every day.
Learn as you learn!


  1. Very useful, I searched about 4 days ago that if I came here I found him more easily. I had to afflict all sorts of websites or YouTube.

    Thank you!
    It would be useful and a tutorial on how to flashuieste kernel, some explanations about what could happen if some files flash ROM other than one made specifically for our device.

  2. These tutorials are less interesting compared to PC-related tutorials. Devi boring tutorials related Cristi phone. And when I say this I mean the phone 3 and One + One + One before it. Since you had these phones you've confused. You start to dig too deeply into them that very few people would do what you do. And I understand that the moment these phones you had or have. But that does not mean we always kill the One + or tutorials related calls. Eventually whatever you do all your phone remains a necessity not a road breaker. Skip to my advice tutorials related to PC

    • Well, if this man has it, oneplus 3 does it. Would you like to make a tutorial for each type of phone? :)). Remember that you do not pay to see these tutorials explained as stupid. Everything is free, and this man dedicates time for others to learn something. If you should pay to see such tutorials… then you would have the right to make claims, until then if you like and are interested .. you look, if not, no.

      I found one website that many useful things, both on PCs .. and about laptops, phones, tablets, routers. People try to cover a large range, you select just what you need. It's on TV, you do not like, change the remote control

    • Karolin - nobody forces you to watch a tutorial that doesn't interest you - as long as Cristian didn't put any conditions on you to be able to watch the tutorials he does, why do you stand up with pretensions? Want to see something that interests you get your hands on it and search - the internet is big don't wait "blackberry in the mouth".
      Cristi - you are doing a wonderful job - thank you for sharing this information with us.


  3. It would be good tutorial about rootare systemless to be able to update ota further.

    Please kindly… To understand that if I unlock the bootloader of the Lg G4 phone that I have after your tutorial and if I flesh TWRP as in the present tutorial, can I flesh cyanogenmod without rooting? Thank you.

  5. (These tutorials become less interesting)… .do you think you're kidding Karolin. What didn't you understand? Cristi clearly explained how to do recovery on any Android, on any phone. If he had samsung then the tutorial was done on samsung because he just shouldn't to do the tutorial on each phone brand. As for the tutorial, NOTE 10….
    PS. And please continue with the flashuirea ROMs, kernels, backup, etc.Stima!

  6. When the bag Nexus 7 (2012) to PC in my device manager appears apx mode. I tried to make a soft downgrade but I think I have the wrong version. Now not open at all. What can I do?

  7. I would like to install Android on LG Nexus Marshmallow 6 4. but without you I would not risk Cristi, expect such a videotutorial.

  8. For people who address me without meaning and besides they have totally misunderstood what I said above. Yes, indeed some read and understand the beginning. Folks it was neither an opinion nor a claim or any request for other types of phones. I came up with a simple opinion that should not be discussed in the Romanian way, not to say otherwise because this is how the Romanian is. Hop if someone says something immediately they find someone to put negatives. Good people, everyone has the right to an opinion and always those who comment on the opinions of others are less emancipated people. Intellectuals, wake up to reality, enlighten yourself a little, don't wait for the sites where comments are posted and you will hop on him to show your intelligence. On the contrary, this is the novel, if it is not contradicted, it is not healthy. You see, some people already make a lot of money from certain comments and as many negative answers as possible. Gentlemen, if you are with your head on your shoulders, sit in your bench. If anyone had something to say, it could be CHRIST. You quickly jump to show yourself what…? Stupidity. after all, the decision belongs to him. I didn't forbid it, I didn't say anything bad, just a simple opinion that everyone is quick to say. I give you some advice for gentlemen to say so loudly. Silence is like honey and stupidity is a painless suffering of intelligence. A good day

  9. Karolin, it seems that Florian is right, who are you to judge an article if you don't like or are bored? Should someone only serve you? Make your website, blog, applications, games to become amen and there you do what you want, until then you don't have this right to judge a work, which you can't understand and especially to respect. I could write differently, you know… typical Romanian, but I refrain, so that you review your behavior and if you understand anything about it, don't write anything. Good day.

  10. Hi Cristi!

    I want to know if I can restore your original version of rum after you unlock the boot loader_ul (here I mean if loader_ul boot is back dua she blokeza install the official version)? if I want to know if you can lock in place boot_loader_ul?

    • Adrian Gudus said

      For some devices you can unlock the bootloader for others not. For example, on the LG G4, if you choose to unlock its bootloader, you will not be able to unlock it again. Flashing the official rom does not unlock the bootloader, it must be unlocked manually "fastboot oem lock"

  11. Florin and you're somehow jury or a lawyer ?. Karolin has criticized what he said. Read again the above text written by him. But you and you as blunt as everyone else. And the 2 2 hand made and the description about yourself that you do not feel you write in the 2 the party even more and you sit in your bank comment that you understand blunt.

  12. Cristi got a note Xiaomi 3 and the question is how get into recovery mode? that fail to know how to do is give cv bp from its global stable 8.06 has MUI. and a tutorial can do about it. and how to root rather tutorials on ciaomi notes 3. I know that you have done but there was alcv

    • Cristi is a pb in Xiaomi note 3 pro ie after you get bootloader unlock request for permission to enter into fastboot say and run the application and to 50% says Failla device not connected and I saw this f bp many. You can do a tutorial on this topic. scz for many posts

      • Root notes to redmi 3 must unlock booloaderul and super flashuiesti su.sunt a lot of tutorials on the net

        • Costa e VB application that gives you the mui after you made the request to unlock the bootloader and can take up to 10 days gives me they have debt burdens in 12 hours. Another application does not unlock the bootloader pote range from Xiaomi after you received permission from her login and come in fastboot and basically would need to unlock. but the idea is that the notes do not go pro redmi 3 50% ie to say that I telu although I am connected to the PC and is in fastboot. why I said if I can do any crystal or adrian as a tutorial putewm bootloaderu successfully unlock Xiaomi notes 3 pro /. pb it's just not me at all I MUI stable global 8.06

          • I also suffered from it. Miflash unlock at 50% showed me couldn't verify device how many times I wanted to unlock the bootloader. I gave the command fastboot oem device-info, and the surprise bootloader unlocked true. I flashed twrp, super su and everything It's ok.

          • How did you manage? I do not have succeeded. And I did not find anything good on the net. With fastboot adb not working. Only their application. And from what I read is cv bag. I Romu 8.06 stable overall. Therefore I said Cristi help us. Maybe gives head

          • put the phone in fastboot, and give the command fastboot devices.daca deviceul show you, give the command fastboot oem device info, and see what he says is true acolo.daca bootloader unlocked, it means you have deblocat.daca of false means still not released

          • Nai understand anything. Dej's Da finish discuss the chat.

          • ok, so better :))

  14. Hello Cristi, I tried to install CyanogenMod on OnePlus 14 3, went first. Wi-fi not connect, see the network but failed authentification ,, ,,, I did a factory reset, thinking that going to help me, did restart and after OnePlus logo appears, the screen is black. I can not get into recovery, laptop sees the phone in fast boot command prompt, adb command device fails, the daemon is not running ,,, what can I do? Thanks a lot, Ivan.

    • CM14 is quite cruel. Better get back to Oxygen.
      Flash-uieste oxygen recovery and return to the Oxygen OS, then you can try CM13 or other ROMs.
      I hope you backed up as soon as you added TWRP

  15. I installed TWRP recovery and good im not i install software updates I have a vodafone Smart raw 6

  16. Fastboot Mode and Samsung phones have?

    • "Do Samsung phones also have Fastboot Mode?" good question since I'm not sure how you get in from a Note 1 either.
      Notes @Cristi you also know that you know if I find 1 ROM and kernel that came with him again? Mine is all encrypted networks and found only on certain networks. Meanwhile I installed my Xposed changed the system, we also rooted in the system. I want to make him a Nandroid leave now but hard to convince, not even sure if it's unlocked, fastboot goes.

    • From cercatari can download believed fastboot mode is the mode N7000 probably and S's.
