Hello all,

Tutorial you must follow:
1. With your phone explorer extract the zip file of the recovery
For easier manipulation copy the "recovery.img" from extracted file to a folder you want
Open the rashr application, it should ask you for root, accept it (If you're on MIUI 6 you have to launch it, close it go to security app and allow root access to this app)
You can create a backup if you want to feel more secure.
2. Now select the first option of the app called "Recovery from storage", it will show a browser, go to the folder where "recovery.img" (or "TWRP-v2.8.6.0-cancro-20150328.img" for TWRP) is, click on it, validate the flash.
PS:It only takes seconds and the flash is done, the app will ask you if you want to reboot to recovery, you can say yes if you want to check or use it right know.
