  • Plug the device to your computer via a USB cable.
  • Open a command prompt in your computer (First, press Win + R to launch the Run dialog, then enter “cmd” in the dialog box).
  • First, change the working directory of the command window to the directory where you had placed the TWRP recovery file (twrp.blob) using the command “cd directorylocation” without quotes (for example, “cd c:\android“).
  • Then, in the command prompt, enter:
    • fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery twrp.blob
