Replace the recovery in this file with the twrp build. Then follow the rest of the instructions. Always do it from a computer.

Here is a screenshot of what the browser shows. This is on 3 different browsers on my phone, I get the same thing.
TIA

1 Right click on Download link in Elgin's post
2 Save target as
3 Change your recovery download from .htm to .img

Thanks. This worked great..I would have never thought to do it that way.

ahhh! that's what it was. thanks a lot, problem is now i'm on windows 8.1 i tried all the xda fixes n drivers to make it read would not recognize driver... that being said for anyone not able to install no matter the reason.... DOWNLOAD Flashify https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...flashify&hl=en from play store...make sure to have ES Explorer already installed. Once Flashify installed give it root rights then choose flash recovery option, Click Es Explorer option inside Flashify APP, find your image on SD, select YUP! to flash. Just be sure you have a LEGIT recovery image your flashing or one you trust like this one found in this thread or you may lose recovery. Worked first try this method

Hi,

I am experiencing error in creating backup, after the process ends it says in red "failed". I copied the recovery log into pastebin: http://pastebin.com/mS6dAG65

had to remove some lines as the log was too large for paste bin, so removed lots of repetitive entries "setting selinux context: ubject_r:unlabeled:s0 I:addFile '/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant' including root: 0"

I'm pasting below the last lines of log. Any ideas what is the reason for fail- and more important- is there a way to check if the backup created is good for use?
