Is it safe? Does TWRP have any extra features over Philz?

And you can just go to goo.im and download the latest TWRP in .zip format and flash in recovery to change your recoveries.
This also comes in handy when a certain recovery is giving bootloop for a rom and you are suggested to try another one, so always keep latest PhilZ and TWRP zips in your SD card 


'Flash In Recovery' using PC Odin?

Perfectly safe. I do this all the time, comes handy when I want to flash something and a certain recovery refuses to.
And TWRP makes backups quite fast and has easy to use UI, while PhilZ has infinite customization and even TWRP conpatible backup options, so no worry about cross compatibility

Titanium backup is good to restore apps and data.
But there is another way..
Take a full nandroid backup
Flash new rom
Install nandroid manager from playstore
Selectivity restore the apps and data I want. I find this better than Titanium.

However, remember not to compress your nandroid backup. Otherwise this method wont work.

No, just like any other flashable zip, go to recovery and select it from the install zip menu and tap yes.
After that go to power options and reboot recovery.
