  1. I can’t root as well.

    I tried this using the global 7.0.8 and 7.0.12 and the developer rom but update failed – it says signature verification failed. How to fix?

  2. I thank you for the tutorial, I appreciate your effort. I had a similar experience as Ruben, one of the commentators above in the sense that when I tried to install twrp, it says “update failed” and I dont know where i missed it. A further pictorial and fuller explanations would be fully appreciated. Thanks.

  3. When I try to install TRWP, downloaded from the link you provided, it says “update.zip” corrupted and abort the installing process. Fortunately, the device doesn’t brick and it can be rebooted right as nothing was happened
