For those of you who have installed a new custom ROM and wanted to change to another ROM, you will probably have noticed that most custom ROMs now included CyanogenMod recovery, which overwrites your existing TWRP recovery (that you probably installed while rooting). Well, to install TWRP permanently after installing a custom ROM, you simply need to flash TWRP recovery ZIP after installing the ROM. That way, you can install new ROMs in the future without having to re-install TWRP recovery using your computer.

1. Pre-Installed apps or systems apps.
2. User apps (apps installed by you).

System apps are in the system partition of your device, while user apps are in data partition of your device. There are several different ways of changing user apps to system apps and vice versa.
