So, you have got both root access and a custom recovery up and running on your phone. It is time for you to celebrate as you now have everything you need to customize your phone to a greater extent, and to the extent where you can change the actual operating system of your phone. Yes, you can have the entire stock ROM on your phone replaced with a custom one that brings with it custom options that were not available in the stock one.
If that sounds cool to you, you can just head over to your favourite Android forum, download a custom ROM of your choice, place it on your phone, and flash it using the custom recovery. You should be all up and running in no time.
Sometimes custom ROMs flashes do not go well and you may want to revert back to the stock. In order for you to have something to fall back on when things do not go well, there is an option in the recovery called Backup that lets you fully backup your phone. That way your entire data will be backed up and you can then go ahead and flash a custom ROM on your phone. If it did not go well, you can just restore the backup and you will be good to go.
Take Into Account:
Team Win often release several TWRP Recovery files for a particular device. They always recommend installing the latest version of TWRP available to avoid compatibility issues. If you have updated the firmware on the device recently and the most recent version of TWRP is not working, then try downgrading the firmware and trying again.
Some custom ROMs that are newer might not be compatible with older versions of TWRP Recovery. You can fix that issue by updating to the latest version of TWRP also.
You can visit the official Team Win Recovery Project home page and scroll down the list to find your device to get the most recent version if the version available in this guide is not working for your device.
