How to install TWRP Recovery on HTC 10 [Guide]

HTC-10-Lifestyle [1]

Sometimes we need to install a custom recovery on our smartphones if we are to get root access because the only way to root the device is to upload the SuperSU through the custom recovery. That is a sterling example of what we are about to do with the HTC 10 smartphone. Once we install the updated version of SuperSU from the recovery, we will have a custom recovery and root access installed which enabled us to do things like install root apps from the Google Play Store. Moreover, we can install aftermarket firmware instead of the stock firmware that comes with our devices, as well as take complete backups from the recovery menu — we call thee NANDroid Backups and they are vital to anyone wanting to flash files from the new recovery because most flashing wipes data.

Here is everything you need to install TWRP Recovery on the HTC 10 smartphone so you can do all of the things listed above and more.
