How to install TWRP recovery on Samsung Galaxy Star Pro [Guide]

Samsung Galaxy Star Pro [1]These are the guidelines to install TWRP recovery on Samsung Galaxy Star pro smartphones. For those who didn’t already know, team Win’s TWRP recovery represents a custom recovery made by third-party developers. They made it to give you more features over the stock recovery. All devices running Android come with a stock recovery mode and that mode is great for applying updates, wiping the cache partition and applying factory resets. However, that’s about all you can do. The custom recovery lets you upload zip files and take NANDroid backups.
