Brief information and benefits of TWRP recovery
TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) is an open source community development project. When you flash TWRP, your device can install any custom firmware, install tablet firmware, install mod zip files for settings, Xposed modules for custom features, one-click root processes and provisioning processes. You can also make a full backup of Nandroid and restore it later, flash the image file with one click, remove bloatware, overclock and underclock. With TWRP, you can easily erase, cache and clear data after flashing an image file to reflect changes and correct minor errors caused by caching.
To install TWRP on the Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10F (WiFi) tablet, you must have the Bootloader installed and unlocked. This means that you first need to unlock the bootloader to root the device, and also perform a configuration.

Procedure for Lenovo Root Tab 2 Tablet A7-10F (WiFi)/Installing Magisk or SuperSU
Make sure you have downloaded SuperSU or Magisk Manager (link in the required section of this article). Then continue with the next steps.
Warning: You can use Magisk Manager or Super SU, but only one, so choose wisely. Go to Magisk Manager if you are not sure.
Step one: Transfer the downloaded SuperSU or Magisk Manager file to the internal memory/SD card of your Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10F tablet (WiFi).
Step two: Just get started on the recovery. You can also make a ROM backup via the TWRP interface. However, I recommend that you make a backup copy of the ROM. Because if the process fails, you can flash the ROM.
Step three: Press Install, then navigate to the SuperSU.zip or magisk.zip file and drag the firmware confirmation file (located at the bottom of the screen). The Magisk/SuperSU flash process has started and will take a few seconds.
