You can rename this file to "twrp_perm" (or "twrp_perm.zip" if the computer displays file extensions) to allow blinking too This file is simple when the time comes. Note that you may need to create an XDA account to download the above files.
Step 3: Enable Advanced Reboot
instead of turning off the phone If you press and hold a few keys to use TWRP in the future, you will activate the advanced restart menus make things a little easier.
