~ open the app and choose Install TWRP,
~ input the correct device name,
~ choose the latest/newest TWRP,
~ follow the instruction to download and flash the chosen TWRP update that matches your device,
~ click reboot after flashing the chosen TWRP,
~ first reboot will bring you to the TWRP recovery screen,
~ do a Wipe on Dalvik and Cache,
~ Reboot system,

*  If your current TWRP is of much older version, you may need to update it first to version 2.7.0.0; then go about update it to the latest version, eg.  TWRP 2.8.5.0

With newer/latest TWRP Recovery installed, you can flash newer custom Roms (eg. Lollipop 5.0.2 etc.) without problem.

I have updated my Sony XPERIA S from TWRP 2.5.0.0 to the latest TWRP 2.8.5.0 using this method, no PC and USB ADB required. Whole process was done on the device. Quick and safe.
Good bye to problems as described below, based on some other more complicated approaches:
