Brief information and benefits of TWRP recovery
TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) is a community and open source development project. Flashing TWRP allows you to install any firmware on your device, boot your smartphone, modify zip files for settings, Xposed modules for settings, root and uproot with one click. You can also make a full backup of Nandroid and restore it later, flash the image file with one click, remove bloatware, overclock and underclock. With TWRP, you can easily erase, cache and clear data after flashing an image file to reflect changes and correct minor errors caused by caching.
To install TWRP, your Umidigi S5 Pro phone must have an unlocked bootloader. This means that you first need to unlock the bootloader to root the device, and also perform a configuration.

Step one: Transfer the downloaded file SuperSU.zip or magisk.zip to the internal memory / SD card of your Umidigi S5 Pro smartphone.
