1. Install app adb root -> ADB_ROOT
2. Enable root on this apk
3. Now install adb --->ADB
4. Copy this file on Sdcard ---> TWRP_RECOVERY
5. then copy this zip file -> UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip
6. write in this adb
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery

at the end
reboot recovery


7. now in recovery flash UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip


Important
For OTA you must replace the original recovery:
1- download this file -> RECOVERY_STOCK
2- write in this adb
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery

I couldn't get it to root myself, but I finally found the problem.
I was putting my files on the external sd card.

If you do that, you need to change the code to:
dd if=/sdcard1/recovery.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery

Otherwise it won't find the file

Put your screenshoot here. Are you sure that have used adb root before. If you are on b01 rom can you take some file for me?

If someone have B01 rom I need this file (supersu delete install-recovery.sh so no OTA when you unistall supersu)

adb shell
mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mmcblk0p23 /system
exit

and after, this command
adb pull system/bin/install-recovery.sh sdcard

Can this be done on an Axon Pro? How similar are the two phones? I'm joining the Axon party this Tuesday and the first thing I do with every phone is try and root it/get TWRP up
