360 N5s: root and TWRP [Eng]

Emanuele C

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.

  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;

  13. "start" to flash the developer ROM.

Flash TWRP

  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
