We can not "install" twrp or any recovery regardless of the FireOS version (5.0, 5.0.1, 5.1.1). We could only temporarily load our recovery into memory (5.0 & 5.0.1). Need a pc each time you want to load one of our recoveries.

No worries

with the 5.1.1 OTA

after you Root if you ADB SHELL it starts as the "shell" user
you just type: su then confirm on screen with the SuperUser app.

Did you extract the ZIP to a folder or just DOUBLE click the BAT file?

Well, . . . . there currently seems to be one way but it's not the safest. It would be advisable for most to just wait a little bit to see if we can restore the ability to load twrp recovery.

Looks ok on my end

Code:
press a key to reboot the device in fastboot mode
< waiting for device >
...
(bootloader) APPEND KERNEL CMDLINE

OKAY [  0.007s]
finished. total time: 0.007s
resuming boot...
OKAY [  0.003s]
finished. total time: 0.004s

It might be a strange issue with the Administrator having "odd rights" on your User/Desktop folder.

Try moving the folder to the root of your C drive

trying now, and for anyone else, i am opting to have this conversation in the thread instead of a pm so that it may help others later.

Edit: still same error msg as before , attempted to run from root of C: with running bat as admin

Hmm...
I assume you've tried NOT as admin, also?

If so and still doesn't work, if your alright with it PM me again, and we can perhaps do a remote support session with Teamviewer or Join.me
