    Will this wipe my phone? I have allready configured it. Just want to change dpi settings. So i need root.

    • Sumit says:

      Yes it will wipe phone data if you want to mount internal storage on TWRP. You can also use USB OTG pendrive to flash supersu which won’t wipe anything.

    This recovery doesn’t allow me to mount data or my internal sd card. It shows internal storage as 0MB.

      Sorry for the trouble bro..I updated the recovery. You can try the latest one and after flashing the Recovery use the command to boot into recovery and if that not work use the hardware button Vol up + Power button to boot into Recovery. Then in recovery flash LazyFlasher and SuperSu.
