#1

Hello,
I updated my Tecno C8 shortly after purchase to . Then I tried flashing TWRP recovery using the method described at https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-1.html and it was successful. But when I try booting to recovery mode using the usual key combination, it keeps boot looping; after a couple of loops it boots to stock recovery. Pls has anyone experienced the same problem? Any suggestions about how to go about solving the problem?

That was exactly the version I used initially. I still downloaded the one at the link and used it but it was the same: it refused to boot to TWRP recovery. Any other suggestions? The new build number it reads is C8-H352-A2-L-20151207.
