  1. It’s not essential to flash redwolf from twrp, you can directly flash redwolf from pc then boot into recovery and flash redwolf again from the recovery itself. That would be better.

    1. We know that. Now most of them will have TWRP Recovery, so we just made this guide with TWRP recovery. Even XDA recommends the same method.
