How to install TWRP on Tecno Spark 4

There are three steps in installing TWRP on Tecno Spark 4: unlocking the device bootloader, flashing TWRP using adb or smartphone flash tool and disabling force encryption on Tecno Spark 4.

If you’re installing TWRP for the first time, read the instructions carefully before downloading Tecno Spark 4 TWRP. If the steps are unclear, drop a comment before flashing so you don’t brick your device.

Step 1. Unlocking Tecno Spark 4 Bootloader

1. Go to About phone on your device and enable the developer option on your device by tapping the build number continuously until you see you’re now a developer.

2. Now, go back to the settings list under the system and select the developer option.

3. In the developer option, enable OEM unlocking and USB debugging.

4. Now download and install minimal adb and fastboot tool on your PC.

5. Once, you’ve installed adb and fastboot tool on your PC, launch it and connect your device.

6. Now, enter the following commands below.

adb devices

You should get a prompt on your phone’s screen to grant access permission, accept the permission.

7. Now, we’ll reboot into the device bootloader by using the below command.

adb reboot bootloader

8. Once your device reboots into the bootloader, you now have to unlock your bootloader using the command below.

Step 9. Now, when the unlock process is done, reboot your device using the command.

fastboot reboot

Wait for your device to boot. On boot, you’ll notice a warning text that your device is now unsecure blah blah blah. You don’t have to panic, your device is ok.

Step 2. Flashing Tecno Spark 4 TWRP

You can flash TWRP custom recovery on your Tecno Spark 4 KC8 device via adb or using the smartphone flash tool. But first, you need to disable DM_verity on your device:

  1. First off, download Tecno Spark 4 TWRP and empty vbmeta.img file from the link below.
  2. If you’re using adb, boot your device into fastboot mode.
  3. In fastboot mode, flash the vbmeta.img first using fastboot –disable-verity –disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img to disable Dm_verity.
  4. Once the vbmeta.img has been flashed successfully, flash TWRP.
  5. To flash TWRP, type in the command fastboot flash recovery recovery_name.img and hit enter.
  6. Smartphone flash tool users should use the device scatter file to load each file and flash. Read how to flash with the flash tool here.
  7. Now, disconnect your device from the PC.
  8. Boot into TWRP recovery mode.

That’s it, you’ve successfully installed TWRP recovery on your Tecno Spark 4 device
