These are the guidelines to install the TWRP custom recovery on the Allview X2 Soul Xtreme using the TWRP manager application directly from your device. The TWRP Manager app lets you flash the latest possible version of recovery available directly from the app without you having to search for it. The managers of the app automatically update the files when they become available. Furthermore, the TWRP Manager is great because you can do backups within the app without having to boot to recovery. That means you can take your NANDroid Backups without moving to recovery mode — a great feature for anyone who does not use the Titanium Backup application.
