    I installed TWRP so I could root my TD-CDMA hongmi. There is now a new update available for the phone - if I use the standard updater it doesn't work and only takes me into the TWRP interface.

    I have downloaded the latest ROM from the official site - but I'm not sure how to flash it correctly. What procedure should I follow?

    Thanks!

    P.S. I am using the official ROM because I am in China.

    If
    First step: make a backup from twrp (boot-system-data-nvram)
    Next: if you are in TWRP then choose wipe/advanced/wipe cache and dalvik cache only.
    After that choose install, select your downloaded rom and flash it
    You are good to go

    Thanks for that.

    I tried that already but get an error - something about a M5 checksum missing or similar.

    I have exactly the same problem.
    Would appreciate also for a solution on this.

    In reply to my own question and for the benefit of others:

    The TWRP web site says that to do a standard upgrade requires returning the phone to stock and then applying the update.

    We would then have to re-install TWRP.
