How to Install TWRP Recovery on the Butterfly (X920D)

To root the Butterfly, you’ll need a custom recovery before anything else but on doing so, it’s not just root access you’ll be achieving. Having a custom recovery (and being rooted) will give you the power to back up your device state before trying a new custom ROM just to fall back on if you don’t like what you flashed, or use the custom recovery to wipe cache/data/system so you can start afresh. Of the custom recoveries available though, the TWRP Recovery seems to be the current popular choice as it offers touch-based menus rather than the older recoveries where you had to use the volume rocker and power/home buttons to navigate. The guide below will show you how to install TWRP Recovery on the Butterfly and later on, you can also root your device pretty sily!By EditAndroidI. Before You Begin1.
