How to install TWRP Recovery on Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace (J110F) [Guide]

Samsung Galaxy J1 AceThe battle between TWRP recovery and ClockworkMod recovery will likely be forevermore. Most of those arguments usually stem from people who can choose between one of the two main custom recoveries. For example, those people with one of the most popular smartphones in the world like the Samsung Galaxy S6 will likely get to choose between TWRP Recovery and CWM Recovery. However, some of the lesser known devices like the Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace don’t always have a choice; therefore, you might find yourself falling in love with the custom recovery you end up using.

The main point is that you will indeed have a custom recovery installed on your device. The following guide teaches you how to install TWRP recovery on Samsung Galaxy J1 Ace.
