    Question Install OTA update with TWRP recovery

    This mighty be a noob question, so please bare with me.

    I rooted my One and installed custom recovery on it(TWRP), and I'm trying to do a OTA update. But when the phone reboots, it goes to TWRP recovery screen and I don't know what to do from there. Any help is appreciated!

    DO NOT attempt to install OTA on a rooted phone.

    Generally speaking is preferable to unroot and do the OTA.

    Root won't corrupt a OTA Update, just Root Access will be lost during the update.
    As the update overrrides some data and files, thus leaving the Root overwritten. Unless backed up with OTA Root keeper.

    A recovery, such as TWRP and CWM, will however interrupt the process or block you from the update.
    So to update your phone, you need to get the update file and install it manually.

    Or you just can't update at all I've tried it. Say the file couldn't flash. I'm still rooted.

    You need stock recovery to do OTA updates.

    Don't try to do an OTA with a custom recovery. Since we don't have s off it'll be hard to mess up your phone but just don't do it unless the file you have can work with a custom recovery. Most OTAs don't. Your best bet is to return phone to stock then do OTA. But keep in mind that the OTA may block current root methods. Make sure you verify this first if you want root. Or you can wait until a dev makes a flashable zip based on the OTA that needs custom recovery which is likely to happen. Good luck.

    Yeah. I would just wait for a Update to be repackaged by a XDA Member.
    Its usually a day or so.

    Ok... so I have a rooted HTC One / Sprint. I would like to install the OTA Sprint HTC SW Update: 1.29.561.10. I tried doing it via standard OTA (I have rootkeeper installed), but it did NOT work, it booted into TWRP.

    How do I get this updated applied on my rooted HTC ONE?

    As I stated above, you need stock recovery. You'll need to flash stock recovery back before it will take.

    I am definitely a noob when it comes to rooted phones. You said "you need to get the update file and install it manually" so I was wondering how to install it manually. I got the update file and it is currently on my PC names update.zip, but i don't know how to get it installed on my phone. I have no issue having to perform my rooting again after installing the OTA update.
