@lj50036
Thanks for this, as I havent quite had a chance to try the the data2sd yet. I have a couple questions though, as twrp gets updated I have always updated a flashable zip for each one, but as I was making one for this I noticed one thing, they are usually in .blob form but this one is an .img? Can I just replace the old blob with this img and it will flash? or can/should I simply change it from a img to a blob?
Also while I knew the latest twrp can flash imgs from within recovery, I tried just doing that and rebooting to recovery but while in bootloader it said something in red at the top right about not finding it... thanks

It is still a .blob but when it gets built in the build system it ****s out a .img ....

I see no need to rename it .... lj50036 <-- IS LAZY !!!!

Feel free to rename it to recovery.blob as that is what it is .....

If you flash it with a zip you will need to reboot all the way back into android before booting into TWRP ....

You cannot flash this with the image flashing tool in TWRP as it is not an image .....

Thx Josh

You have to "reboot system" so that the bootloader can copy the recovery image from the blob in the staging partition to the recovery partition, but when it reboots again after the blue progress bar, you can hold down volume-down immediately when it vibrates to go back to the bootloader menu. No need to boot Android.
