TWRP Recovery has a lot of areas of application in performing advanced tasks and tweaks on Android smartphones, and we’ll once again put it to use today. In this guide, we’re going to learn how to restore back to stock ROM using TWRP Recovery on Razer Phone. If you are looking for a way to perform a System Restore on the Razer Phone, you’re on the right track.
Why restore back to stock ROM using TWRP on Razer Phone?
Restoring back a smartphone to its stock ROM that shipped from factory is the best fix you can apply to any problem on an Android smartphone. Performing tweaks like flashing custom recoveries, flashing custom ROMs, rooting, unlocking bootloader and others on an Android device is risky and the possibility of bricking the device and getting stuck on a bootloop is there, and when these problems occur, restoring the stock ROM of the smartphone in question will undo all the changes you’ve made to it and set things back to normal. This is also referred to as “installing a clean OS”.
Also, a custom ROM might not be compatible with all the default software and hardware configurations on a smartphone, so some core functionalities like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS may be broken and may not work properly, or at all for that matter. In such a situation, doing a system restore might be your last resort.
