But it will not boot into TWRP I’ve done this several times and still cannot get TWRP to start. Do you have any other suggestions to help me. Thank You

  2. it did the same thing to me there is a video on YouTube that shows you how to do it you have to press the power button a certain it does work tho

  3. there is a video on YouTube that shows you how to do it there is a certain way you have to press the power button to get it to work properly it does work tho

  4. You might be doing as i did and including “.img” when you rename the file. When i went to properties of the file i noticed it said “recovery.img.img” because .img is added anyway. So if so just name the file “recovery” and it should boot into twrp.
