    First thing I'm going to tell you, stop making new threads for the same phone, you can comment on the old ones and we will respond

    Second, you don't have to unlock the bootloader to flash the ROM with SP tools

    Third, even if you had to, Blue has a bug on some phones that doesn't let them press that button to unlock it...

    Don't flash just the TWRP, if you saw the ROMs I gave you, they are made to be flashed with SP tools.

    Again, why do you want to flash TWRP? The ROMs I linked do not need TWRP at all

    I don't believe you will be able to, because of that bug

    so the only way to install custom recovery would be to root and the use a flashing app to do it?

    Or not install TWRP at all, TWRP is not needed unless you found a custom recovery. And if you can't unlock the bootloader, then you are basically fucked :(

    No because of a bootloop, I have tried to flash TWRP before to a Blu phone with the same bug, and it just never booted. It booted TWRP but not the OS
