    This is how I replaced the stock recovery with TWRP recovery, do so at your own risk OK!!

    Download TWRP here

    - Rename TWRP3_X8H_Plus.img to recovery.img.
    - Put recovery.img onto an SD Card formatted to FAT32
    - Put the SD Card into your Minix and boot to TWRP recovery from the SD Card (same process as stock recovery).
    - Swipe to allow modifications
    - Select Install
    - Select Install Image which is second up on the bottom right
    - On the bottom right click "Select Storage"
    - Choose Micro SDCard
    - Select the recovery.img in the top left
    - Select Recovery on the next screen and swipe to flash
    - Once flashed select Reboot System

  2. >>boot to TWRP recovery from the SD Card (same process as stock recovery).
    Can someone explain how exactly to do this?

    Power off the device, insert a paperclip or the like into the small hole at the back of the device, push and hold the power button while still holding the paperclip in, release both when the TWRP recovery screen appears.
  4. But it takes me to the default recovery and not TWRP recovery. I have used fat32 memory card which has the (TWRP) recovery.img

    BTW i my X8-H Plus has Lollipop Beta RC2 on it. I actually want to root it.
