for my phone (Canadian D803). I didn't actually follow the directions on this page.

Once I had the TWRP .img file, I used Recovery Tools to flash TWRP.

I then downloaded PhilZ Touch Recovery from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2554053
I booted into TWRP Recovery and from there, flashed PhilZ Recovery. From that point on, when I boot into recovery, I get into PhilZ instead of TWRP.

I still haven't figured out how to boot into recovery using the power/volume buttons. I've tried a few times and I can't get it to work. However, Recovery Tools has a reboot option, and that works great for now. Of course, if I get into trouble and can't access this app, that option is gone

*Edit* I finally learned how to boot into recovery using the power/volume buttons! I followed the instructions given by bodom_hc here:

I hope this helps.

How in TWRP did you flash the PhilZ Recovery. I have used the "Flash Zip" file option and when when I boot back into recovery I still get TWRP?

I did the same thing. I chose "Install" in TWRP and selected PhilZ recovery. After reboot, PhilZ just came up by default. I didn't do anything else myself - I'm pretty new to this. Did I just get lucky?
