I went looking in the Play Store for GooManager but it is not there.
Is there another relatively easy way to install TWRP or make a system backup to an external SDcard through USB.
Any help would be appreciated.
Your bootloader is LOCKED with 4.3 or 4.4.2 therefore you CANNOT install a custom recovery, and don't try unlocking the bootloader as it will brick your phone. The only custom ROM's you can install are the few Touchwiz ones that are available. You won't be able to install any AOSP
Using the search box would've saved you time.
