If you want to unlock the full power of your Condor C5’s hardware, rooting and flashing TWRP is the first step. In terms of customization, stock ROMs often have restricted and unsupported capabilities. You may install any Custom ROMs, Mods, Kernel, and Xposed, as well as many applications that need root access to run correctly, after you’ve rooted your smartphone and installed TWRP recovery.
TWRP Recovery: A Quick Overview and Benefits
TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) is a community-driven open source project. Your device will be able to install any custom firmware, root it, use mod zip files for modifications, use Xposed Modules for customizable features, and perform one-click root and unroot operations after flashing the TWRP. Apart from that, it enables you to create a Full Nandroid Backup and restore it later, flash image files with a single click, remove bloatware, and overclock and underclock your device. After flashing any image file, TWRP can simply wipe Wipe, Cache, and Data to reflect the changes and correct minor cache issues.
Your Condor C5 phone must have an unlocked bootloader in order to install TWRP. That implies you must first unlock the bootloader before rooting and customizing your smartphone.
Always double-check your model number, which should be:
You must confirm that you have read the disclaimer properly and that you agree to continue at your own risk before rooting your phone.
If your phone is not at least 70% charged, you may have issues when testing. Why take a chance when you can completely charge it?
It is a good practice to create a backup of your phone if you are planning to root it or install a Custom ROM. Make a cloud backup of all your media, including photographs, movies, and other files on your PC, as well as your contacts.
By navigating to Settings, Applications, and Developer settings, you must enable USB debugging.

Step 5: At this point, just mark the recovery as ticket/completed. Now, on the location tab, choose the recovery’s storage location option and search and browse for the device-specific custom recovery image file (As shown in the picture above). Then choose Download from the drop-down menu.

Rooting Condor C5 and installing SuperSU
Make sure you’ve got SuperSU installed (link in pre-requisite section of this article). Then go through the instructions.
Step 1: Move the downloaded SuperSU.zip file to your Condor C5 smartphone’s internal storage / SD card.

Step 3: Tap ‘Install,’ then scroll to ‘SuperSU.zip’ and swipe to confirm flashing (located at the bottom of the screen). The SuperSU flashing procedure has begun and will take a few seconds to finish.
Congratulations, you’ve now rooted your Condor C5 and installed TWRP. You may now install the Xposed Framework and personalize your smartphone to your liking. If you want to double-check, you may use the Root Checker app to download and check the Root Status.
