How to Flash IMG Files on Rooted Android with Flashify App! [Root Apps] - Page 2


Step 7. Choose one of your file explorer apps.  If you don’t see any, try downloading ES File Explorer app from Play Store.


Step 8. Browse your storage and choose the IMG file you want to flash.


Step 9.  Choose “Yup”.  That’s it!


After installing the modded version of TWRP I wanted to install, my TWRP recovery has updated wonderfully as shown below.


I think there may be many instances where this app may be very useful but certainly in this case, it saved me few minutes of connecting my phone to my computer, running fastboot, and installing this custom modded version of TWRP I wanted.

    I cannot get flashify to upgrade CWM v6.0.4.8 Recovery for HTC One X M7.

    When installing i am asked to reboot into recovery and i still see ClockworkMod Recovery version is

    Interestingly my ROM manager says i have the latest v6.0.4.8

    Any ideas

      Hey there I have the same problem. What was yout solution???????

    • Bruce says:

      Same problem here – CWM says still on after using Flashify to update to on One X EndeavorU

      • Bruce says:

        In the end I just went back to using fastboot, which worked fine as always. Flashify seems like a waste of time for this purpose anyway.

    Thank you so much for sharing this great app and your step by step tutorial. It works without any ‘issues’ 🙂 just updated my TWRP from “twrp” to the latest “twrp”

  13. Nasher says:

    Works great my bootloader was locked on note 3 with no command warning, but i used the flashify app and the yup option its works on the cwm or the twrp or philz, i have a note 3 9005 international version, Excellent help, but its hard to understand the instructions

  14. doug teichroeb says:

    why does the previous page state “If you have a rooted Note 3, you can easily install CWM or TWRP using Flashify app.”? how is that possible if 9005-cwm-recovery 6.0.4..4.1.tar, is a .tar file?? Flashify will only install .img files? I can only install CWM to my Note 3 via ODIN…..

    • Paul says:

      unzip the .tar file for the image file. copy that image file to your phone. worked 1st time for me

  15. Paul says:

    Thank you so much. Worked first time after several failed attempts using Odin.
    I owe you a pint sir!
