Official TWRP now available for Nokia 6! | Download link and installation guide inside




Android development for Nokia phones might finally pick up some pace now. A few months back, Nokia 8 got its official TWRP. Then it got the official Bootloader unlock from Nokia Mobile itself. Now, TWRP becomes official for Nokia 6!

First things first. You'll need an unlocked bootloader, which isn't officially available at the time of writing this article. But if you're ready to pay some money, you can unlock it unofficially.

Once you have unlocked the bootloader of your Nokia 6, you can use one of the following methods to install TWRP on your Nokia 6.

  • Using the TWRP app (root required)
  • Using an older TWRP itself
  • Using fastboot commands
  • Using dd commands (root required)
Since no proper TWRP was available before this, I would suggest not to use the installation from the TWRP method. Here we'll see how to install TWRP using fastboot commands(No Root Required).
Warning: Do it at your own risk. We nor Team Win are responsible for any damage that may occur from installing or using TWRP.

Download TWRP from this link: twrp-3.2.3-0-PLE.img. Rename the file to twrp.img

You'll need fastboot binaries on your computer. If you don't have it already, download the platform tools from here. Enable USB debugging inside the developer options on your Nokia 6 (Go into Settings -> System -> About phone and tap on the build number 7 times to enable developer options, if you haven't already).   

Power off your device. Once powered off, press and hold the Volume Down button. Keeping the Volume Down button pressed, connect the device to the computer via USB cable. The device will boot into “Download mode”.

On your computer, open a command prompt/terminal and type the following commands:


fastboot flash recovery twrp.img


fastboot reboot

After typing fastboot reboot, hold the volume up & power keys and boot to TWRP. Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.

If you're not comfortable with holding the key combos, try these commands instead:

fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

fastboot boot twrp.img

You have now successfully installed official TWRP on your Nokia 6!
