    How to Flash

    Note: This version of TWRP currently doesn’t support decryption so you won’t be able to touch the System partition or root your phone without flashing a modified kernel first.

    1. You should have ADB and Fastboot installed on your computer. Install the latest version of SDK or use a standalone utility.
    2. Connect your Nexus 6P to your computer over USB. Make sure USB Debugging is enabled from Developer options.
    3. Download the recovery from above and place it inside the same folder as ADB and Fastboot.
    4. Now open a command window in that folder (Shift + RMB > Open command window here).
    5. Execute this command to reboot into the bootloader: adb reboot bootloader
    6. Now unlock the bootloader (this will wipe your data): fastboot oem unlock
    7. Finally flash the recovery: fastboot flash recovery twrp-2.8.7.0-angler.img
    8. You can reboot your phone now: fastboot reboot
    9. You can also temporarily boot into the recovery: fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.0-angler.img
    That’s all folks! I’ll be posting a modified kernel for decryption and root soon.
