How To install custom recovery in your phone Without PC

Do you want to install custom recovery in your phone without using a PC? Then, today I will show you how to install it within 5 minutes.

Android is a very useful and customisable operating system for the latest phones. It is highly customisable. Users can customise it as they like. Android provides all the basic features of a phone and in addition to that, it provides many other additional important features which make day today life more easy. Similarly, one of the important features provided by the Android is the recovery option. Which are basically of two types. One is stock recovery And the other one is custom recovery.

What is Recovery for android?

Recovery is the option provided by the Android Operating System for the recovery purpose of your phone. It includes features like wiping data cache, formatting data, resetting, zip file etc. The default recovery provided by the Android is called stock recovery. And the recovery which a user himself installs in the phone is called custom recovery. Generally, you cannot access all the features in the stock recovery provided by the Android. Hence, many users install a custom recovery for additional useful features and options like installing zip files, backup, recovery, format and all the basic and important features needed for a recovery option. So, you can also install custom recovery without PC.

Types of  best basic custom recoveries

1.CWM (Clockwork mode recovery)

2.TWRP(Team Win Recovery Project)

These are the two best basic custom recoveries and are the most common recoveries.I prefer to choose TWRP. Basically, there is no such big difference the the features provided by these two recoveries. The main difference is that, in CWM recovery, you will have to use volume buttons and power button for switching and selecting purpose. Your touch will not work in this recovery. Whereas, in TWRP, you can use your touch panel were switching and selecting purpose. That is why, I prefer to use TWRP recovery instead of CWM. Hence, one can know about how to install custom recovery in phone without PC.

      Hello Daniel,
      Ya you would be able to use Snapchat according to the Rom that you install after custom recovery installation. Follow both of the procedures that I have already posted and thing will be easy. But make sure to take some backup of your data and original Rom somewhere.
