[Q] Does Custom Recovery require a prior bootloader unlock?
Is it possible to flash twrp .img using flashboot without first unlocking the bootloader...
move the SuperSU .zip over to internal SD
flash with TWRP
and then install bootunlocker
I ask, because I dont want to lose all data by
fastboot OEM unlock
command and I am not sure if a custom recovery requires an unlocked bootloader (I assume recover is still strapped to initial handoff of bootloader)
Also, this seems both safer and more convenient than leaving bootloader unlocked after customizations... or locking and restoring backups
