    • You may find option like install zip and then choose storage where you have copied the rooting package and follow the steps listed above.

  1. Did not install CWM,
    C:Program Files (x86)Minimal ADB and Fastboot>fastboot flash recovery recovery
    .img

    target reported max download size of 268435456 bytes
    sending ‘recovery’ (32768 KB)…
    OKAY [ 1.045s]
    writing ‘recovery’…
    OKAY [ 1.217s]
    finished. total time: 2.262s

    But it booted in to normal recovery. Also how to boot in to Fastboot mode?

    • Just type adb reboot bootloader to boot into Fastboot / Bootloader Mode. If the zip file doesn’t get installed then temporarily boot from it using the command – “fastboot boot recovery.img” to use this command you must have first booted into Fastboot Mode.
