HOW TO INSTALL TWRP RECOVERY ON ASUS NEXUS 7 2013 LTE

  1. Download the TWRP Recovery [3] file and have it on the desktop of the computer.
  2. Learn how to set up ADB on your Windows computer [4] with our guide if you haven’t got it done already.
  3. Drag the TWRP Recovery file over to the same folder as your ADB.
  4. Connect the Asus Nexus 7 tablet to the computer with the USB cable.
  5. Within the ADB folder, hold the Shift key and right-click the mouse to bring up a new menu where you need to select the option to open a new command window here.
  6. Type the first command: adb reboot bootloader
  7. The Asus Nexus 7 tablet will now boot up in the bootloader mode and be ready for the next command.
  8. Now type: fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
  9. Wait for the custom recovery to be installed on the Nexus 7 tablet before issuing the final command.
  10. Type: fastboot reboot

Sometimes Android devices will replace your custom recovery with the stock recovery again during the first boot. To prevent this from happening, use the Google search engine to find the correct key combination to enter the recovery mode on your device. Now hold that correct key combination after typing the “fastboot reboot” command and it will boot into the TWRP Recovery. The TWRP Recovery will now patch itself and replace your stock recovery so it is always bootable on your device until the day you choose to wipe it and replace it with a stock recovery.
