Update (Feb 6, 2016): TWRP Recovery 3.0 is now available for YU Yureka too. The same has been provided as download below, and you can install it using the procedure outlined below which is same for TWRP v2.8.x too.
TWRP 3.0 brings a new theme (looks great!) and many new features. The new TWRP 3.0 is based on Android 6.0 code, and thus supports Marshmallow ROMs much better. If you encrypt your SDcard as system partition, now you can directly decrypt it from TWRP 3.0 only. For full changelog, check this TWRP page.
Original post: Lollipop update for YU Yureka is out now but that also meant for pro users that TWRP recovery was not supported. Well, cheer up, the YU Yureka TWRP recovery compatible with Lollipop update, CM12S, is out now. We’ve put together a guide for you below, be sure to follow carefully.
It’s important to note that the recovery provided below is compatible only with Lollipop, Android 5.0. Do not try it on KitKat. If you do, you could brick your Yureka. So, make sure you are updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop, CM12S, before installing the recovery.
→ In case you experience any issues with new TWRP 3.0 on your Yureka, simply install the v2.8.x.x version back until those issues are fixed in TWRP 3.0.
- YU Yureka, updated to Lollipop, Android 5.0 [not compatible with Android 4.4 KitKat]
