Will this recovery work on lollipop rom u have made? If do, how?
1. Using flashtool, rename twrp img to recovery.img, put in rom folder, and flash it. Or
2. Unlock bootloader?

It has been a while since the last post. The aroma installer and aroma file manager seems not working. I opened opengapps aroma installer and it stuck at the start. The only way is to reboot. I'm using lollipop twrp wwe. Also, @Gibz97, can you update the base to 3.0.0?

The version of aroma installer before the latest one works on our TWRP.
I already have the base for TWRP version 3.0.0-0. I will work on it when I get the time
