360 N5s: root and TWRP [Eng]

Recommended Posts

After many attempts we successfully rooted 360 N5s and, using root access, we managed to flash our TWRP. This is at now the only way to obtain TWRP in this model. 

Warning: At the end of this tutorial your device will reboot in TWRP. If you don't flash a custom ROM (or SuperSU) at this stage, TWRP will be wiped at next boot and you will return at stock recovery.


  • 360 N5s with 70% of battery charge (at least);
  • PC Windows 64 bit;
  • USB cable;
  • needed files to download.


Warning: Use this procedure at your own risk and responsability. GizChina.it and GizBlog.it are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards and any other problem that may occur. Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.

How to flash developer ROM with root access

  1. Install the drivers;
  2. download and unzip flash tool and developer ROM;
  3. run QGDP using "Developer" as User;
  4. click "Login";
  5.  "Config";
  6. click on the folder image (top-right of the frame);
  7. select the developer ROM (.CPB file), then "Apply";
  8. wait until the process is completed;



  9. shout down the phone;

  10. hold the "Volume +" key and connect your phone to PC
  11. push Volume +, you should see this:
  12. Windows will identify your phone as "Qiku Android Bootloader Interface";
  13. "start" to flash the developer ROM.

Flash TWRP

  1. Reboot;
  2. go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options;
  3. go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device);
  4. enable OEM unlock and debug USB;
  5. hold down the Shift key and right-click the folder that contain the TWRP image. Choose "Open command window here.”
  6. type the following commands and hit enter at the end of every line:
    adb push recoveryN5s_GizRom.img /data/local/tmp/recovery.img
    adb shell
    dd if=/data/local/tmp/recovery.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery
    adb reboot recovery

    the last command will reboot your 360 N5s in TWRP.

Non abbiamo mai provato dato che per N5 una TWRP esiste già: link. Da installare seguendo solo la parte finale della guida (Flash TWRP), qui trovi traduzione in italiano

purtroppo non funziona, non è possibile ottenere i permessi su, non esiste una developer rom anche per l'n5?

Hai ragione, dimenticavo che quella procedura ha bisogno del root. Cerco una soluzione e ti faccio sapere

grazie mille! speriamo bene, purtroppo così è inutilizzabile, troppe app cinesi
