So if I understand correctly the bootloader and twrp zip from above will allow to flash them individually? In twrp point to the zip and it gives you options to flash the bootloader without twrp? I would do this:
1. boot into twrp and choose install.
2. choose zip from above
3. choose bootloader only?
4. reboot into rom. let it sit for a few.
5 reboot into twrp
6 choose new twrp?
7 reboot into rom.
Just trying to be clear so no brick...
I would upgrade in goomanager. Thats how I got twrp to begin with. But I have read it doesnt work anymore?
You cannot flash BL or TWRP separately from that package. It's either both or none.
But flashing the package would be the easiest and safest method to get you on a current recovery in my opinion.
GooManager: For a few weeks now Goo did not support flashing recoveries anymore. I've read it often enough that I consider that information confirmed - although I have not tested it myself.
Now - just yesterday I read a post where a user reported that Goo got an update and he flashed TWRP successfully. That's one report I know of - if you want to give it a try, go for it. It can't hurt.
The thing is, to use GooManager you have to root the stock rom you are running.
I don't know if the stock rom you are running is rooted, but why bother if you can just flash sbdags package??
