I've run into the problem of replacing the 5158n glass with the G01 and not having touch for TWRP. I've unlocked, installed TWRP but since I don't have touch and the USB mouse adapter doesn't work with TWRP I have no ability to install SuperSU. I came across a thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2511924 and the OP stated that he bypassed the problem by sideloading TWRP by:

* adb: # echo "sideload" > /cache/recovery/openrecoveryscript && killall recovery
* adb sideload SuperSU.zip
* reboot
* then in terminal emulator I flashed the touchscreen firmware: # touch_fw_update -u /data/local/tmp/02-3011-4820.ekt
* reboot

This is where my problem lies. I don't know how to do this. I tried opening the console and typing the first line but I get "The system cannot find the path specified."

Can anyone give me a step-by-step or fill me in on what I'm doing wrong? Do I need to have TWRP running when I do this? Thanks in advance.

Why don't you use a non touch recovery, like CWM for KitKat ROMs. That should solve some problems:

That did the trick. Thank you very much! All the threads I read said not to use CWM because it was for 4.1 only and it would brick but they were pretty old. Anyway, thanks again!
