    Team Win strives to provide a quality product. However, it is your decision to install our software on your device. Team Win takes no responsibility for any damage that may occur from installing or using TWRP.

    Support Status: Current

    Maintainer: deadman96385, Dees_Troy

    Code Name: ether

    Device Tree / files

    App Install Method (Requires Root):
    Download the TWRP Manager app:

    Install the app and open it. Tap on Install TWRP. Select your device from the device list (ether) and then tap on Install Recovery. The file will download and be installed automatically.

    Download Links:
    Current and past versions of TWRP can be found at one of the mirrors below:

    TWRP Install (Requires TWRP 2.8.4 or higher already installed):
    Download the latest TWRP image file (.img) from the download link and boot TWRP. Go to install and find and select the Images... button. Browse to the image that you downloaded and select it. Choose recovery and swipe to flash.

    Fastboot Install Method (No Root Required):
    You will need the platform-tools from the Android SDK on your computer. Find the Android command line tools section on the page linked and install the SDK tools package. From the SDK Manager, download only the platform-tools to get adb and fastboot binaries.

    Windows users will need proper drivers installed on their computer. You can try the Naked ADB drivers or the Universal ADB drivers if you don't already have a working driver installed

    On your device, go into Settings -> About and find the Build Number and tap on it 7 times to enable developer settings. Press back and go into Developer Options and enable USB debugging. From your computer, open a command prompt and type:

    adb reboot bootloader

    You should now be in fastboot mode.

    Download the correct image file and copy the file into the same folder as your adb and fastboot binaries. Rename the image to twrp.img and type:

    fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

    fastboot reboot

    Note many devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot. To prevent this, use Google to find the proper key combo to enter recovery. After typing fastboot reboot, hold the key combo and boot to TWRP. Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.

    Note: Some fastboot binaries may not recognize the Nextbit’s vendor ID. You may use fastboot -i 0x2c3f flash recovery twrp-3.0.0-0-ether.img or similar to make fastboot recognize the device.
