UPDATED TUTORIAL ON HOW TO INSTALL TWRP RECOVERY VIA FASTBOOT ON ANDROID
Android is amazing, and most of us have no idea that we can do a lot of interesting things with it. We can flash custom ROMs, overclock the processor etc. So, it is not just a device to take photos and surf the web. Those who have done flashing and rooting stuff know how cool this is. Now, there are many terms that you need to understand when you are flashing a ROM or custom recovery. One of the most used terms is ‘Fastboot’.
For those who are not familiar with this stuff, let me explain what Fastboot/Bootloader means. Fastboot/Bootloader mode allows you to flash any partition on any Android device, like system, boot, cache, recovery. etc. With the help of fastboot/bootloader, you can also flash your custom built .img files. You can flash a custom recovery like TWRP or CWM on your device.
Now, TWRP recovery is a custom recovery for Android devices which is developed and maintained by TeamWin. TWRP lets you do tons of things on your Android phone which stock android recovery doesn’t allow you to do. For example, if you want to flash a custom Android ROM on your smartphone, you cannot do this via the stock Android recovery, so you have to install a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP. TWRP is the most popular and the recommended custom recovery for any android device. Sometimes, the TWRP recovery is not available for every Android phone, so you can get the unofficial TWRP recovery via XDA as that’s the best place to get anything related to Android.
Now, If you wish to install TWRP recovery via fastboot on your Android device, just follow the step by step guide. These steps will work for almost every Android device.
KEEP IN MIND – Samsung users have to use ODIN Flash tool to install TWRP recovery as you might get some issues if you try to Install TWRP Recovery via Fastboot on Samsung devices.
- The device should have an unlocked bootloader.
