    If you are ONLY HTC unlocked you will need to follow the fastboot method to install, if you are HTC unlocked AND rooted, you can use the goo manager method.

    Team Win Recovery Project 2.1, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It

    HTC Dumlock -- Now flash kernels in recovery without S-off

    TWRP 2 Instructions:

    1. Install the build of TWRP using your method of choice, but you must actually flash TWRP to recovery. No fastboot booting it. We need it in recovery so that this build of TWRP will be flashed to your boot. This new build of TWRP has features in it to easily restore your original boot.
    2. Reboot into recovery.
    3. Make a backup of your phone.
    4. Tap Advanced.
    5. Tap HTC Dumlock. (If you don't see HTC Dumlock then you need to remove any custom TWRP theme that you might be using.)
    6. Tap Install HTC Dumlock. This will install the app and binaries needed to make everything work nicely.
    7. Reboot your device.
    8. Find and open the HTC Dumlock app.
    9. If/when prompted, give the app root (SuperUser) permissions.
    10. Tap the Execute HTC Dumlock button.
    11. Wait patiently for a couple of minutes. It takes a little while.
    12. If your device doesn't reboot automatically, reboot it manually. Reboot it normally. DO NOT reboot it to recovery.
    13. You should now be in your recovery, but your recovery is flashed into boot.
    14. Tap Advanced.
    15. Tap HTC Dumlock.
    16. Tap Restore Original Boot.
    17. Use your recovery like normal. Flash a new kernel. Restore a backup with a different kernel. Do whatever you please!
    18. Consider donating!
    Note, you must repeat steps 8 through 18 EVERY TIME you need to flash boot.

    Thanks for this. The CWM recovery wasn't working for me, so I flashed this one and it worked. Nice UI too, looks very ICS.

    Question. Can we use this recovery to flash the root zip listed in the root section or do I have to have the cwm recovery? I couldn't get the cwm recovery to work for me. Probably user error! Atleast I got this one to work so I could get me a backup. Thanks. Really like the recovery

    Ok, when I go to flash the supersu root in this recovery I get a message saying "this my make your phone not operational"(or something like that). My question, is that a normal message on this recovery and I should carry on, or should I stop?

    Can I just use TWRP for recovery, backup and restore? What is the purpose of installing Dumlock? What is s-off, I see it everywhere. Sorry if this is really a noob question.

    Thanks for the TWRP, it is really smooth. I am more custom to CWR, never reallize there about your work. Thanks again,
