How to Install TWRP on Nubia Play?

Installing TWRP on the phone requires an unlock bootloader. So, I have divided this whole guide into two parts as below:

  1. Bootloader Unlock
  2. Flashing / Installing the TWRP recovery

Unlocking the Bootloader

The phone must have an unlocked bootloader in the first place to be able to install or replace the stock recovery with TWRP recovery on Nubia Play.
Follow the below instructions to unlock the bootloader.

  • Go to Settings, > About Phone and then tap on the Build Number for 7 times to enable Enable developer options
  • Then install the ADB and Fastboot by downloading from one of the above links
  • Connect the Nubia Play phone to the PC
  • Once done, reboot the phone into fastboot or bootloader mode and execute the below command:
    fastboot oem nubia_unlock NUBIA_NX651J
  • The bootloader should be unlocked by now!

Booting or flashing the TWRP

  1. Download and extract the Nubia Play TWRP zip file. There you will get recovery.img, misc.bin and the EN_Recovery-twrp-oneclick-EN.bat file.
  2. Then connect the phone to the PC using a USB cable.
    [su_note note_color=”#D7E3F4″ text_color=”#728095″ radius=”3″ class=”” id=””]- On your phone, if you see such as “Allow USB debugging” then just tap on OK to proceed.[/su_note]
  3. Double click on the EN_Recovery-twrp-oneclick-EN.bat batch script to automatically flash the TWRP and the misc.bin file to the respective partitions.
  4. Alternatively you can install it manually. Open a command prompt (on Windows) or terminal (on Linux or macOS) window, and execute the below command to restart your phone into fastboot mode or bootloader mode:
    adb reboot bootloader

    [su_note note_color=”#D7E3F4″ text_color=”#728095″ radius=”3″ class=”” id=””]- You can also enter into fastboot or bootloader mode by turning off the phone and then pressing the Power button + Volume Down button.[/su_note]
  5. As this is an A-only device, the TWRP needs to be flashed on the recovery partition. So, execute the below commands to flash the twrp and the misc.bin file:
    fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.4.x-xx.img
    fastboot flash misc misc.bin

    [su_note note_color=”#D7E3F4″ text_color=”#728095″ radius=”3″ class=”” id=””]While executing this command make sure to replace the twrp-3.4.x-xx.img with the actual filename of the TWRP.[/su_note]
  6. Wait for the fastboot command to finish installing the TWRP on Nubia Play.
