Hi all,

I just updated my Idol 3 to Marshmallow and kept track of the links as I installed various items. I hope this will help others find these tools and files.

Systemless TWRP 3 Touch Recovery for Idol 3 (Note: If you use adoptable sd storage, use ADB sideload to flash files until rooted; after root copy files to flash in data folder. I created a sub directory named twrp [/data/twrp] for flashable files. I think you can see the sd card if you don't use adoptable sd storage.)
