Hi, I have a rooted Sprint LG G2 and have been trying to get a custom recovery working. I downloaded TWRP 2.7 and flashed the zip with Flashify but it doesnt seem to be working even though I get a message saying it was flashed. If I reboot into recovery it just reboots the phone and if I manually try to boot into recovery it goes to stock recovery. Anyone know how I might fix this and get it to work?

I'm on Kitkat. Flashify has an option for zips so I thought it would work.

Well you should be glad it didn't work otherwise you would end up with a broken recovery or a soft brick, anyways you should use AutoRec to install custom recovery on kitkat

I couldnt sideload apps from my SD card so I had to factory reset. Maybe because I tried flashing a zip? Well I used AutoRec now and have a custom recovery. Than you!
