New Method to Install TWRP to Boot Partition

  • If your device has a recovery partition, then you could directly flash to that partition via the below commandfastboot flash recovery twrp.img
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

But if your device has an A/B partition scheme, then your device most likely wouldn’t have a recovery partition.

fastboot boot twrp.img
  • Once it’s booted to TWRP, you will then have to go to Advanced and select the Install from Recovery Ramdisk. After that, you will have to navigate to the twrp.img file and then perform a right swipe to flash it.
  • While this method still stands, there is now a better approach to carry out this task. Instead of using the Install from Recovery Ramdisk option, you could now opt for the Flash Current TWRP option which is also present under TWRP’s Advanced section.
  • Do note that no matter whether you choose the Install Recovery Ramdisk option or the new Flash Current TWRP, you will still have to fix the recovery bootloop. For that, head over to Advanced > Fix Recovery Bootloop > Perform a right swipe to confirm it.

So what is the benefit of this method? Well, you wouldn’t have to manually flash the twrp.img file to permanently install it. Rather as soon as you select the Flash Current TWRP option, it will automatically flash TWRP permanently using the file that you have used to boot to TWRP in the first place.
