hello, i wanted to install the TWRP recovery.. and i used this guide: http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/187 .. i got no error in the terminal and it said copied correct bla bla and i rebooted the phone.. but i still cant get in the recovery (no light bumps up on boot/shutdown) what went wrong?

now i wanted to use the XZ-lockeddualrecovery2.7.132-BETA.installer.zip but can i just use it? because i used already an other guide and i dont want to brick my phone...

and the file is named "lockeddualrecovery" why locked?


my bootloader isnt unlocked (bootloader unlock ALLOWED: yes) but why should i unlock it? what advantage my phone will get when i unlock it? i can root it, i can use recoveries.. for what the unlock? i googled.. and no one asked about this.. all want to unlock but i want to know why

first of all hi!

you dont need to unlock your bootloader to install it!

its called LOCKED maybe because its work on locked bootloaders too!

use THIS
to install DUAL RECOVERY BY @[NUT] !!!!

go ahead with dual recovery. it won't brick your phone.
locked means it can be installed in locked bootloader.
unlocking bootloader lets you install custom roms like cyanogenmod, omnirom etc which are close to stock android something like in nexus devices.
