How to Install TWRP recovery for Mediatek devices.

Some users find it difficult to use volume buttons in recovery mode as it can become tedious and annoying. Quite a few people also have non-working volume keys & loose hope of installing ROMS or tweaking their phones. There are so many phones based on MediaTek chipset, which receives almost zero importance in the development section. Due to the lack of development, Mediatek phones are considered as the worst choice.

This won’t last long as every day a new developer is born & Support the development of a particular phone. You can also check out How to Install ClockWorkMOD in Mediatek phones | TWRP for Mediatek

Here’s another post with another cool method to get a Touch recovery for your MediaTek based device. You might be thinking, “what’s the difference in touch recovery & Clockwork mod”?

The names say it all; in Clockwork mod, you need to use your hardware Volume buttons to navigate the options, it doesn’t support touch, but in TWRP Touch recovery, you can use the touch function which is much more comfortable, easy & less time-consuming. Just like it takes a few minutes to flash CWM in MediaTek, even this method will require a few minutes to Install a touch recovery.

What Is Team Win Recovery Projects?

How To Install TWRP on any MediaTek Device

Team Win Recovery Projects or TWRP is an open source software custom recovery image for android-based devices. Unlike Clockwork Mod, it allows you to use the touchscreen to install third party firmware and backup the current system, which is usually not supported by stock recovery images.

TWRP allows users to take advantage of everything the Android Development Community has to offer. There are various other custom recoveries like ClockWork MOD (CWM). It should be noted that a nandroid backup done of TWRP can not be restored using the other or vice versa.

Every device has a stock recovery but it does not allow any custom ROM to be installed, because of this we replace the stock recovery with TWRP. TWRP gives us access to system modification which normally wouldn’t be possible.

What Is Recovery?

Recovery is a small piece of software that runs in the recovery partition of your device. It is possible to boot this partition without switching on your phone. This is possible because the android system files are not placed in memory.

Even When your phone is updating, Booting into the recovery is part of the process, although we can not access this function, we therefore need custom recoveries such as TWRP to have access to these files.

Requirements:

  1. Requires Root.
  2. Install ADB driver.
  3. Enable USB debugging
  4. Disable UAC.
  5. Disable driver signature
  6. Compatibility with KitKat
  7. No need ro.secure=0 to run.
  8. Easy Magic Installer: Download

TeamWin Projects (TWRP) recovery for MediaTek

Features of this method:

The method to use this software is too simple as it has two options Auto mode & Manual mode. In Auto mode, all you have to do is install the MTK ADB drivers, Connect your phone that’s all. After installing the recovery, you may find some bugs or face a Dpi issue you. I’ll give you a rough idea as the software is too user-friendly, and anyone can operate it.

Auto mode:

You don’t need to know a thing & it’ll port a working TWRP for your MTK & that is why it is called Magic.

Manual mode:

  1. Let you choose either to use your boot.img or recovery.img for porting.
  2. Let you manually choose your device res, data/media device, flipped screen & uses all files from your stock recovery.
  3. Device resolutions
  4. data/media
  5. flipped screen.

UnPack/ RePack mode :
Let you mod whatever you want with the option to install it right away to your MTK

  6. It’s a .exe file, File hosting sites don’t allow uploading of .exe files directly as hackers try to attack PCs through such files. Stay assured, it doesn’t have any virus, we scan every files through virustotal before uploading it.
