  1. Hi, when I extract the TWRP recovery file it shows it as an image file, so when I select the AP box to insert the file it does not recognise it as a .tar file,
    what do you suggest?
    kind regards,
    mark

    1. I Checked the Link and it is a Tar file. So don’t extract the .tar file. Just tap on AP box, browse and select .tar file. I just uploaded T820 and T825 model. Please try the correct model TWRP

  2. Hi And, TWRP is now installed, many thanks. However I cannot root the device through TWRP I select the latest Supersu zip file, it loads and everything is good, except in red it says cannot mount data. It also says success.
    However it is not rooted, do you have any suggestions?
    Kind regards,
    Mark
