  5. Download SuperSU 2.76.zip at https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B_-waNKLv...t=download
  6. Copy SuperSU.zip to both the phone’s internal storage
  7. Connect the phone to the PC via USB cord while switched On and boot it into Fastboot (as instructed in the Bootloader unlock guide; don't forget to re-enable OEM unlocking and USB Debugging)
  8. When the phone enters Fastboot, load the TWRP recovery to the phone by typing the command below then pressing Enter

    Code:

  12. In TWRP recovery, tap Install
  13. Navigate to the location of the SuperSU2.76.zip and select it
  14. Swipe to confirm flashing of SuperSU.zip and wait till flashing is complete

You're supposed to exercise patience. The phone might take up to a minute to boot into TWRP. watch the screen screen closely. It will blink the TWRP home screen then sleep. Press the power button once to wake it.
Since bootloader is already unlocked, skip the bootloader unlock part

I followed the instructions and while I am able to successfully unlock my bootloader when i attempt to install the TWRP recovery the phone shows that a USB transfer has taken place but when it reboots it does not reboot to the recovery it reboots into the normal phone OS. This is a Techno Phantom 6 plus from a Windows 10 OS. I have gone into fastboot mode severally and tried install the provided recovery.img file without success.No matter how long i wait it reboots into the full phone OS and manually going into recovery shows the stock recovery.

This rooting guide is for Phantom 6, not Phantom 6 Plus.
create a new thread if you wish to root your Phantom 6 Plus
see https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-514.html for how to create a thread
