Install TWRP recovery

First of all, the phone must be bootloader unlocked, if you didn't do that please unlock the bootloader first, you can find many guide for that.
https://www.htcdev.com/bootloader/

And one thing, there is a switch called "OEM Unlock" in developer options menu, make it turn on or you will fail to get unlock token.

Now you have a bootloader unlocked device right? :D

Please download this TWRP recovery
https://twrp.me/htc/htcdesire10lifestyle.html

Let phone reboot to bootloader and switch to fastboot mode then use the command to boot the recovery.

(Temporary)
Code:
fastboot boot twrp-3.2.1-0-a56dj.img
If you want install TWRP as main recovery please use the command
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.2.1-0-a56dj.img
Okay, If everything are work in right way, your device should be in TWRP recovery, you can do everything you want. :p

I recommend to use Magisk to get root :good:

a56dj?

I've made desire 10 lifestyle officially supported on TWRP website, download TWRP recovery here.
https://twrp.me/htc/htcdesire10lifestyle.html
Thank you very much for letting me get the required link. I just wanted to know what is 'a56dj', is it the code for HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle? How can I get stock boot image for my device, which I think is required while using "magisk" to get root?

If you know adb, then you can connect your device to the PC/Laptop and use the command ' adb reboot-bootloader' to get into fastboot mode. I am also trying to root my device. I will flash 'twrp' and then see what I can do for rooting. But, I have to be careful. I must be able to flash stock recovery.

Getting error in flashing TWRP.

Hi Op,
The command 'fastboot flash twrp-3.2.1-0-a56dj.img' is not working on my device in fastboot mode. It says ' unknown partition twrp-3.2.1-0-a56dj.img' in the second line it says : can not determine image filename for 'twrp-3.2.1-0-a56dj.img'. But I tested the same '.img' file by booting into the TWRP recovery on my mobile through the 'fastboot boot ................... ' command. What is the cause of the error. Plz help.

Help required for busybox.

Hi OP,
Can you guide me to any forum/tutorial for dealing with problems in installing busybox ? Busybox installation fails repeatedly on my device -- through 'busybox installer' & flashing zip file through recovery-- both not successful. Is it because SeLinux enforcing? Do I have to go for S-Off, then only I can install busybox? Plz help.
