How to install TWRP Recovery on Oppo Find 5 [Guide]

oppo-find-5 [1]Installing TWRP Recovery on the Oppo Find 5 smartphone means you can do a good deal of jobs you couldn’t otherwise have done from a stock recovery. The possibilities are nearly endless: backing up, uploading zip files, restoring, mounting partitions, using new settings, hitting the advanced tab and using some terminal commands, rebooting and more.

These are the guidelines to install TWRP Recovery on Oppo Find 5 smartphones.

REQUIREMENTS

BEFORE WE BEGIN

HOW TO INSTALL TWRP RECOVERY ON OPPO FIND 5

  1. Download the TWRP Recovery image for the Oppo Find 5 smartphone from this link [3].
  2. Set up adb on the computer you are working with during the guide.
  3. Open the folder containing adb and copy the TWRP image over to the same folder so they are both in the same directory.
  4. Connect the Oppo Find 5 smartphone to the computer with the USB cable.
  5. From within your adb and TWRP folder, hold the Shift key down and right-click the mouse anywhere in the folder where there are no files.
  6. Choose to open a new command prompt window from the new menu that pops out.
  7. Type the first command to get your Oppo Find 5 in bootloader mode: adb reboot bootloader
  8. Type the next command to flash your custom recovery on the Oppo Find 5 smartphone: fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
  9. Type the final command to reboot: fastboot reboot

On occasion, issuing the reboot command can have the Oppo Find 5 smartphone wiping over the custom recovery with the stock recovery. That problem can be easily fixed by looking up the button combination to enter recovery mode on the Oppo Find 5 and pressing it just after you type the “fastboot reboot” command in the command prompt. You should now find the Oppo Find 5 boots in the TWRP Recovery and you will never see the stock recovery again until you choose to flash it on your device later down the track.
