Mod Type:: Recovery

Difficulty:: Easy

Mod Status:: Stable

Apply In:: Other (See Description)

Optional:: Custom Settings

Requires Root:: Yes

Source::
TWRP 2.3.0.0-JB is now available for use on devices that have the Asus JB bootloader ONLY, please see our website for download information. Do NOT install if you are on the ICS bootloader.

We HIGHLY recommend users enable and backup your devices before flashing custom roms/recoveries or updating to the JB OTA with nvflash courtesy of AndroidRoot.mobi (this also makes your device essentially "brick-proof" so there's no reason not to do it)***

Team Win Recovery Project 2.3, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

CHANGELOG for 2.3.1.0:
-Unmount system after boot to prevent some status 7 symlink failed errors on zip install
-USB Mass Storage code improvements
-Better handling of mounting storage during boot for some devices
-Fixed a problem with sizes of images (boot & recovery) after resetting defaults
-Fixed size errors during backup for some devices on recovery, etc.
-Fixed a problem with restoring backups when multiple archives were present

CHANGELOG for 2.3.0.0:
-Rebased onto AOSP Jelly Bean source code
-Rewrote backup, restore, wipe, and mount code in C++ classes for easier maintenance going forward
NOTE: backups from prior versions of TWRP are still compatible with 2.3
-ADB sideload functionality from AOSP is included in 2.3, see this link for more info
-Re-wrote fix permissions entirely in C++ and runs in a few seconds instead of a few minutes (thanks to bigbiff)
-Improvements to zip finding in OpenRecoveryScript (should be a lot fewer GooManager automation issues)
-Faster boot times
-Added charging indicator while in recovery (only updates once every 60 seconds)

While this update may not bring a host of new must-have features, this update is a significant re-write of much of the core TWRP code. AOSP Jelly Bean recovery source moved to mostly C++ code and now all of the "TWRP" code is fully rewritten into C++ as well. Now that we've laid this groundwork, we're in a much better position to pull in future AOSP recovery updates as well as implementing more great new features.

Since TWRP 2.3 is based on AOSP jelly bean sources, TWRP now uses recovery API 3 instead of 2. Some zips may no longer work if the developer is using an out-of-date update-binary. This API change should not be a problem on newer devices, but older devices will probably encounter several zips that need to be updated. If needed, you can try using this update-binary that was compiled with current sources. It goes in your zip file in the META-INF/com/google/android folder.

DOWNLOAD:
The fastest and easiest way to install TWRP is to use the GooManager app: (THIS METHOD IS CURRENTLY DISABLED FOR THIS DEVICE SEE THE WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO FLASH)
Play Store Link
Direct Download
1) Install GooManager from the Play Store
2) Open GooManager and provide root permissions
3) Hit Menu (or the button with the 3 dots on your screen) and then Install OpenRecovery
OR:
You can find more information and download links on our website!
NOTE: If you're coming from another build of TWRP, you may need to go into settings and tap reset defaults to reset the storage paths so that you can see your zip files.

BUGS:
If you have found a bug, please consider posting it to our github issues log. It's pretty much impossible for us to keep up with the more than 30 threads that we have for the devices that we "directly" support. If you have a significant problem that cannot be answered in this thread, your best bet is to contact us via our website, or find us in our IRC channel below. If you see someone that's struggling, feel free to point it out to us. We need your help to help us keep track of all of our devices! Thanks!

SUPPORT:
Live support is available via #twrp on Freenode with your IRC client or just click this link.

Hey.. Hey you.... You're a wonderful person! I know it is usually the case that TWRP can flash pretty much any zip that CWR can, and I've largely made the switch because I enjoy supporting devs who support open platforms like OpenRecovery. The question I have is, have you had any failed flashes with any ROMs as of yet?

I would really love to use this rather than CWR, but I'm enamored with Jermaine's AOKP port. If they are incompatible, I don't know what I will do.

Any insight you can offer is much appreciated.

All the best,

I have Jermain's AOKP ROM and this recovery installed and have no issues.

There is a tad bit of a learning curve with this recovery, only because you can do so much more.

This is fantastic... ;)

I edited my OP to state "Make sure you're on the latest TWRP or CWM". Time for me to flash this recovery.

Edit: Installed perfectly and working great! Thanks eyeballer!!
