>> So far, I've done unlocking the boot loader via adb: fastboot OEM unlock & also fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (TWRP i ported).
>> Gladly i don't end up with brick the phone. But facing black / gray screen while accessing TWRP recovery.
>> I read from HomTom HT70 forum, They also facing the same as issue. The only way to access the TWRP recovery via adb: fastboot boot recovery.img

*** While HomTom H70 also using android nougat 7.0, so i guess the method applicable to Nuu X5
*** According to them, Volume up, Volume Down & Power buttons no functions inside the recovery.

ps: i can't test the method because the phone is belongs to my elder brother : p

>> I guess who got bricked their phone, two using sp flash to flash TWRP recovery & forgot to unlock their bootloader first.
