How to Flash
Note: This version of TWRP currently doesn’t support decryption so you won’t be able to touch the System partition or root your phone without flashing a modified kernel first.
- You should have ADB and Fastboot installed on your computer. Install the latest version of SDK or use a standalone utility.
- Connect your Nexus 6P to your computer over USB. Make sure USB Debugging is enabled from Developer options.
- Download the recovery from above and place it inside the same folder as ADB and Fastboot.
- Now open a command window in that folder (Shift + RMB > Open command window here).
- Execute this command to reboot into the bootloader: adb reboot bootloader
- Now unlock the bootloader (this will wipe your data): fastboot oem unlock
- Finally flash the recovery: fastboot flash recovery twrp-220.127.116.11-angler.img
- You can reboot your phone now: fastboot reboot
- You can also temporarily boot into the recovery: fastboot boot twrp-18.104.22.168-angler.img
That’s all folks! I’ll be posting a modified kernel for decryption and root soon.
