Steps to install TWRP and SuperSU
Copy the above SuperSU to your SDCard.
First of all, you will be required to unlock your bootloader.
There is an option for this under Developer Options in the settings menu. Activate this.
Also activate USB Debugging. This makes this a whole lot easier.
Now, open a terminal, if on Linux, or command prompt if on windows, and enter the following:
adb reboot bootloader
fasboot oem unlock
Once this is complete, it will go back to the fastboot screen.
Now, from within your terminal/command prompt, navigate to the folder where you have downloaded the above recovery.img to.
Enter the following command once there:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Once this is complete, there will be a screen telling you how long it took etc. Now you need to hold down your volume up button, and power button. Keep holding these untill you reach the menu for recovery, fastboot or normal mode.
This will boot into TWRP for the first time. when you get there, you will be prompted with a screen asking for a password. Cancel this.
WHAT EVER YOU DO, DO NOT FORMAT DATA LIKE IT ASKS YOU!"" YOU WILL LOSE TWRP!!!
Your then presented with the main TWRP screen, go ahead and tap on Install. Next, hit Select Storage, and select Storage 1. This is your SDCard.
Now flash SuperSU.
When this is installed, reboot to your main system, and update the SuperSu binary.
Now proceed to reboot back to recovery, how ever you wish.
Once in recovery, go into Wipe, and hit Format Data, this will wipe your phone again, but youve just done this anyway so it doesnt matter
Now flash SuperSU again, just to be safe, the same way as above.
Reboot to your system, and your done!
You will have to go through the setup of the whole android system again, but its worth it your now rooted and have TWRP to install the Custom ROMs that will be coming shortly
