  • In TWRP, if you get a prompt asking you to swipe to allow modification of the System partition, tap KEEP READ ONLY
  • If TWRP offers to root the phone, select NO
  • In TWRP recovery, tap Install
  • Navigate to the location of the SuperSU2.76.zip and select it
  • Swipe to confirm flashing of SuperSU.zip and wait till flashing is complete

On wiko Ufeel lite.

1. Was your phone bricked before you flashed the TWRP
2. Have you flashed back stock ROM or recovery?

1. No ! My phone has not been bricked before flash the TWRP
2. I flashed the first time on the new phone and the original clean ROM with your files. A second time after restoring the phone with the Wiko restoration software

I don't understand No. 2
I need to know if you've been able to flash back a working stock recovery.img so I can use it to port TWRP for your Build
