2. RECOVERIES

To Change to SkyHawk Recovery
1. download file https://mega.nz/file/AolzUJpR#ptySg13zpobaDZjagatNkDKQdnAgVPt2I_C2k-ecqPk
2. unzip img file
3. flash img file into Recovery slot from TWRP
4. reboot into TWRP
Boot & data will backup and restore but system is missing from the Sky hawk backup list
MTP works at the OS level and can be activated at the recovery level using the cloud icon in the mount section of Sky Hawk recovery.
