How to Root Tecno Phantom 5 and Install TWRP Recovery

The long anticipated TWRP Recovery file for Tecno Phantom 5 is now available with no bugs’ issue. However, rooting can be possible and flashing of custom roms can be easily executed via recovery mode. Months back (as of the time of publishing this article), an XDA developer ported CWM recovery for Tecno Phantom 5, although it wasn’t tested, but he assured us that it will work fine. Most of my readers testing it complained of bug issues so we decided to provide you guys with the TWRP Recovery file which was ported by Team Hovatek.
