You have to do them in order.Being on Sprint do I need to do the previous updates or right to NMJ51B? I am on NM181
Try the stock recovery. Pull the boot.img out of the stock dump zip and flash it in fastboot. Once in the stock recovery, hold power & vol up to get to hidden menu. Then adb sideload.Side loading is failing for me. Not sure if I'm doing anything wrong.
rooted and unlocked.
boot into recovery
on computer 'adb sideload <file posted here>.zip'
TWRP shows failed at the top. The console shows it trying to apply
Why? The process I described took me all of 5 minutes, and I didn't have to wipe anything.If you are going to go through all that trouble, just flag the lastest back to stock image. If your bootloader is not unlocked, the unlocking process will wipe your data.

BMG1001 has updated his root thread with the latest TWRP build. Just follow the link in his thread and flash it the same way as the previous build, fastboot flash boot twrp.img. Root is working with the latest build as well. https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3701976Airwolf,
the stock imange boot file trick sounds like a plan, however...how do we get TWRP back after wards. The only versions i have are cooked into the ROM image.
