This is custom recovery for axioo Titan model. You will need this custom recovery to get root and install custom rom. I made this on 2 flavor, TWRP and CTR. CTR was at version 6.1, build using lineageos-13 tree and the TWRP is at version 22.214.171.124 and build using omni-6 tree.
Unfortunately, I cannot make the touchscreen works on the TWRP version, tried all possible way to get it done but no luck so far. So for now, this TWRP version is useless unless you want to use it using mouse with otg to operate. If some of you are rom developer and know how to patch the kernel for the touchscreen to work, please please let me know 🙂
However, the CTR version is working well with this device, of course with the same disfunctioning touchscreen but you can use the device button to navigate, … and I recommend you to use this release.

HOW TO INSTALL :
To install this custom recovery, you need SPFlashTool program which only available on winblows os platform so … really sorry, I cannot support it because I never use and don’t have winblows. You may refer to this tutorial : MT65xx Flashing Tutorial it is very well explained by Bruno Martin.
Please be really careful using SPFlashTool, especially when flashing ROM not for your device, since it may bricked your device forever.
Scatter file you might need :
Use the appropriate scatter file base on your stock sw release on Settings -> About page. The sw20170512 is the first sw release from axioo and the second is sw20170706 with different lcd type device. The sw20170706 is compatible with device sw20170512 but not the other way around.
HOW TO REBOOT INTO CUSTOM RECOVERY :
To enter the custom recovery mode is pretty easy on this model, just completely power off the device until you feel the device vibrate, indicating it was totally shutdown. Then, hold down Volume Up button then press Power button, hold them both until you see 3 menu list appear, Recovery, Fastboot and Normal.
Scroll or choose between item using Vol up button and select them using Vol down button. On this case, choose Recovery and press Vol down button, wait a sec or two … then you’ll be entering recovery mode. There are also many apk on playstore such as Quickboot, RecoveryTool, … etc, that can do reboot into recovery directly from alive system, use any one you like.
HOW TO ROOT :
After installing this custom recovery, you can install root and Superuser as usual, I recommend to use latest chainfire SuperSU
- On a first install this custom recovery, you have to enter the recovery mode immediately after flashing, otherwise the stock rom system protection will restore back the stock recovery and you lose what you just did. This is only one time, once you enter the recovery and installing supersu root or my custom rom, the custom recovery will stay in place.
- By default, the titan data partition is encrypted on the stock rom. So if this is your first time installing this custom recovery, you need to format the data partition to let this custom recovery handle the data partition. If you’re not formatting this, the data partition cannot be erased during Factory Reset on Wipe Menu and this is absolutely NOT recommended. You have to erase /data partition before installing a new custom rom.
