    I could not enable stock recovery from TWRP as "Don't Disable" button did not help and the device still boots into TWRP.

    Appreciate any help.

    Then M I stuck with a permanent root with no OTA updates :eek:

    May be Funk can help with a flashable zip. However flashing stock everytime you want an OTA update doesn't sound right.

    EFS is a partition on your device. It stores your IMEI numbers etc important stuff. You can brick your phone if you manage to corrupt the EFS partition.

    If you need regular OTA's stay on stock or just unlock the bootloader and stay stock. Once rooted the ota's would not work and you need to wait for a flashable zip every time.

    Once a flasher, OTA's would never be that important. Who's ganna stay stock for long anyways :D

    Firstly thanks for this guide. I am having issues getting TWRP to 'stick' it says it is installed in TWRP manager app but when I boot to recovery it takes me to stock recovery. I have to get to TWRP by booting with it in fastboot but it is a little bit of a pain, anyone else experience this?

    I think you must be having that passive twrp installation, which works only when connected to PC. I don't recall the precise manner to hard install twrp, but presume it must have been mentioned in the OP.

    When doing that for OPO, using Linux, I too had done a passive installation before.... And then when I realized it, I went to the hard install.

    Just unlocking bootloader will give you ota.... But after rooting, no. But anyways how long do we stick with a single rom! :D

    May be some time later, if you do have any questions feel free to post here or PM

    After the TWRP install in fastboot use the force command to boot in the first time:

    Code:
    fastboot boot recovery op2-twrp.img


    There on it would stick, hope this works for you.

    Yes you would... just like i did.

    You would still get the OTA after rooting, its just the installation would fail.
    The workaround is to rollback to stock image install install the OTA and then ROOT and set it up again. Just like i did :D
