App Install Method (Requires Root):

Download the Official TWRP App (root required):

Install the app and open it. Agree to the Terms. Select TWRP Flash. Select your device from the device list (nx609j) and choose a version. The file will download to your Downloads folder. Browse to and select the file. Tap on Flash to Recovery. Find out more about the app here.

Download Links:

Current and past versions of TWRP can be found at one of the mirrors below:

TWRP Install (Requires TWRP 2.8.4 or higher already installed):

Download the latest TWRP image file (.img) from the download link and boot TWRP. Go to install and find and select the Images... button. Browse to the image that you downloaded and select it. Choose recovery and swipe to flash.

Fastboot Install Method (No Root Required):

You will need the platform-tools from the Android SDK on your computer. Find the Android command line tools section on the page linked and install the SDK tools package. From the SDK Manager, download only the platform-tools to get adb and fastboot binaries.

Windows users will need proper drivers installed on their computer. You can try the simple FWUL adb/fastboot ISO or the Naked ADB drivers or the Universal ADB drivers if you don't already have a working driver installed

On your device, go into Settings -> About and find the Build Number and tap on it 7 times to enable developer settings. Press back and go into Developer Options and enable OEM unlocking and USB debugging. From your computer, open a command prompt and type:

adb reboot bootloader

You should now be in fastboot mode.

Your device needs to be unlocked before it can flash custom images. To unlock your device type:

fastboot oem nubia\_unlock NUBIA\_NX609J

Download the correct image file and copy the file into the same folder as your adb and fastboot binaries. Rename the image to twrp.img and type:

fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

Choose the "Reboot to recovery" option in bootloader to enter TWRP.

NOTE: Many devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot. To prevent this, boot to TWRP and swipe to "Allow System Modifications". TWRP will then patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.

WARNING: Choosing to "Allow System Modifications" in TWRP may result in a non-booting device if dm-verity is enabled. Disable dm-verity before (or immediately after) choosing this option using a dm-verity disable zip or a root zip like Magisk.

dd Install Method (Requires Root):

Download the latest image file (.img) from the download link above. Place it in the root of your /sdcard folder and rename it to twrp.img. Run the following commands via adb shell or a terminal emulator app:


dd if=/sdcard/twrp.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery
