Team Win Recovery released for new phones and tablets from Samsung, Sony, Yu, Alcatel, and BQ

Team Win Recovery Project is the de facto standard for Android custom recoveries. While the open-source project often makes its way to disparate Android phones and tablets by the efforts of interested indie ROM developers, the maintainers of the project work tirelessly to bring official builds out as well.

PSA: Samsung's recent updates have added back the choice to set apps as default or pick them once only

If you have one of Samsung's devices that were released in the past couple of years, chances are it either has had this annoying behavior since the start (Galaxy S7 / S7 edge) or it was introduced with some update (Note 4).

That's why Together is now living its last days. In the new Wear app update, you'll see a notice of Together being shut down on September 30, with the reason being its redundancy with Wear 2.0.
