Is Your Device is Ready?
If your device comes with a bootloader, it may prevent the sideloading of TWRP. Thus you have to first ensure that you have unlocked the device before downloading and installing the TWRP file. Make no mistake about this, unlocking your device means that you are willing to wipe clean the smartphone. This means that you will have to back-up all files before unlocking the device.

A good way to get the TWRP update on your Android tablet or smartphone is via Google Play Store. This is the safer way to download the official update released by TeamWin. Nevertheless, TeamWin also provides the links to the update files on its website. This comes with the download and installation steps.
If you haven’t used this tool before (an amateur) but want to give this a try, please seek the assistance of a professional or you can explore some YouTube videos to make yourself familiar with the process first. Although TWRP tool is meant for the developer community and they are thorough with the entire thing in its totality, TeamWin also warns of the risks involved in terms of damages to the mobile phones.
