This is my build of Dees-Troy’s Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) 3.0.2-0 for Huawei Y5 (Y560-L01/L02/L03/L23/U23).

Do not mirror my builds! Please post a link to this page instead. (TWRP flashable)


Do not use this recovery to flash official updates from Huawei website! You need to repack them for custom recovery or use the stock recovery to install.

How to install:

  • Download and install Huawei USB drivers (windows) or setup udev rules (linux)
  • Download Android SDK platform-tools (Windows, Linux, Mac) to get adb and fastboot
  • Download recovery-twrpxxxx-y560.img recovery image and rename it to recovery.img
  • Create a new directory somewhere and copy adb(.exe), fastboot(.exe) and recovery.img into it
  • Enable USB debugging and OEM unlocking on your device (Settings -> Developer options -> Android debugging & Settings -> Developer options -> OEM unlocking)
  • Plug in your device via USB cable and install drivers if necessary
  • Open terminal window, change into the directory you’ve created and execute following command in terminal window to boot into bootloader
adb reboot bootloader
  • Unlock bootloader (this will wipe your device!)
fastboot oem unlock-go
  • Boot recovery image to make a clean backup of your firmware
fastboot boot recovery.img
  • Reboot back to bootloader and flash recovery image to recovery partition
