* Your warranty is now void.

* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please

* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM

* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if

* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
TWRP 3.1.1-0 for Alcatel TRU
Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP), is an open-source software custom recovery image for Android-based devices. It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface which allows users to install third-party firmware and backup the current system, which are often unsupported by stock recovery images.

What's new in 3.1.1-0:
  • Backups will now include adopted storage keys (Dees_Troy)
  • Fixed an adb restore issue (bigbiff)
  • Fixed rebooting when no OS is present (Dees_Troy)
  • Fixed line wrapping in the GUI terminal (_that)
  • Updated TWRP source code to AOSP 7.1.2 (Dees_Troy)Updated TWRP source code to AOSP 7.1.2

You wouldn't by chance have the stock recovery would you? I rooted my tru successfully, but noticed now that my phone is glitchy. If I had the stock recovery, I could get unrooted and root back in time when someone creates a custom rom for this device.

did you flash the twrp recovery and had problems with the cache partitions?
idk if we can make a ROM for this device since we cant access the bootloader/fastboot.

UPDATE.
I reverted the download link back to the original one, compiled from Omni source instead of CM due to errors not booting up properly.

Thanks!! It all worked out fine. I didn't have a problem with flashing twrp. I just wanted to make sure I had the stock recovery for later on just in case someone came up with a custom rom for later. Plus things were kinda moving slow so I wanted to go back to stock anyway.

I soft bricked my phone I am caught in an endless loop
Hello, awesome guide. I am not a pro by any means but I do ok with phones usually. Not this time. I had twrp installed fine, ran the recovery through the program just fine, and when I installed that zip file everything went to hell on a mismatched google file lol. I am not currently stuck at the bootloading screen with a e:failed to mount /system (invalid argument)
e:error opening/data/media/0:no such file or directory.

no package file selected. I dont think I have an os on here lol


Please, any help to get back to the twrp menu would be apppreciated

Go to the KingRoot website and install the APK. (https://kingroot.net) Then something should pop up just press Install Anyways.

To get SuperSU you have use w0lfdroid's KingRoot 2 SuperSU script. Install it via Terminal Emulator.

Or just flash TWRP via Rashr and use the SuperSU zip.
But I'd recommend you to stay with KingRoot since on mines I can't remove SuperSU.
