If you had been waiting for the update to the TWRP for your Huawei Y3 (2017), you can breathe easy; the latest update for the official TWRP for the device has been released.
To the uninitiated, TWRP stands for Team Win Recovery Project, an open-source program that lets you perform custom recovery operations of your mobile device. You may be familiar with legacy devices like PCs and laptops run on Windows have the system restore or backing up data and rebooting the device. On the mobile phones, you have to download the software that has been specially developed for the particular model and then do all those correction operations.
The unofficial TWRP update for the Huawei Y3 (2017) came a year ago around this time, November 2017. The next update is available now. Smartphones with processors other than the Qualcomm ones presented difficulties for the developers of this software, but with time, devices from Huawei with the Kirin processors and the ones like the Huawei Y3 with the MediaTek chipsets are able to get the tool making the users happy.
To recap, the Huawei Y3 (2017) is a 5 inch phone with the MediaTek MT6737М processor and just 1 GB RAM. The OS is the Android Marshmallow, version 6.0. Obviously, the device was meant to cater to the lower segment of the smartphone market, but many users enjoy playing their favorite games on these phones and don’t mind the low 2200 mAh battery even.
Custom recovery using an unofficial version of TWRP is highly unrecommended since it comes with many risks, including leading your device to hang and inoperable. You would never want that. With the official version of the TWRP itself, you are warned to be very careful since you can end up damaging your phone. Only those with some kind of knowledge and confidence in handling the complete sequence are advised to do the operations or one must educate themselves on how to do it the right way.
The process involves downloading TWRP, and once installed, you will need to back up all important information you have stored in your mobile onto an external storage or the cloud and then do the custom recovery and reboot.
Keep your smartphone safe and secure.
