Verizon tends to actively discourage users from rooting and otherwise modifying their phones - that is to say, the users' phones, not Verizon's. Despite a draconian bootloader policy, the HTC One M7 (2013) has had at least some form of S-Off available since October of last year, and Justin Case's Sunshine tool has taken care of the more recent software builds. It's a little late to the party, but the official build of the Team Win Recovery Project is now available for the HTC One on Big Red.

Alright T-Mobile users, it's time to get flashing, at least if you own an LG G3 or the 7-inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Team Win has released their custom recovery build for both of the T-Mobile variants of those devices, enabling power users to easily flash modifications and ROMs or backup the existing system. You can grab the T-Mo G3 recovery here, and the Galaxy Tab 4 recovery here

Apparently the various unlocked and carrier models of both devices are just different enough to cause difficulty when flashing a modified recovery or ROM, and in both cases these TWRP builds are the first official ones for their respective devices.

The Team Win Recovery Project remains one of the more popular custom recovery options for custom ROM enthusiasts, and now the group has updated the core software to version 2.8. Things don't look different on the outside, but underneath we find a ton of new features that only the kind of technical users this tool is aimed at could love.

With this release, TWRP now uses a C++ based MTP implementation so that users can transfer files to both emulated storage and microSD cards alike.

Big things are happening for the smallest of Android devices. Over the last month, we've seen several attempts to extend the capabilities of Android Wear, some have worked out, while others haven't fared so well. Most of the activity has come in the form of 3rd-party apps, so there hasn't been much action for dedicated modders. That is, until today. Team Win just posted its first official custom recovery for the LG G Watch (dory).

Rooters and ROM flashers of several devices have new options today, as the developers behind the popular Team WIN Recovery Project have added three new Android devices to their growing list. The somewhat dusty LG Optimus 4X HD (from when phone names were crazy long), the LTE version of Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (because Samsung never really got over the crazy long name thing), and the Xiaomi Redmi 1S all get access to the touch-based recovery software, with downloads available from the website.

There comes a time in many Android enthusiasts' lives when the urge to flash a custom ROM becomes too great, but that desire alone isn't worth jack squat without a custom recovery. The Team Win Recovery Project (yup, that's what TWRP stands for) is one of the more popular and reliable options out there, which makes it good news to for tinkerers with a Sony Xperia Z2 that support has landed for their device.

Verizon was the first US carrier to get the HTC One M8 on its airwaves, if only by a nose. Even so, it took the folks at Team Win Recovery Project a little longer to get their much-loved TWRP custom recovery onto the Verizon version of the phone, probably because it takes a little more effort to get around the carrier's locks. But whatever the reason, it's here, and ROM aficionados on Big Red will surely be grateful.

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is the Android equivalent of the Ford Excursion: comically oversized, incredibly expensive, and its claims to "utility" are questionable at best. (Also, it might not get more than one major release.) But if you've got one, you're probably a hardware enthusiast, which means you also might be game for some modifications or custom ROMs. Well now you can: the folks at the Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) have just released a version of their custom recovery for your gigantic tablet.

Update: It looks like users can unlock the AT&T version of the HTC One M8 with the HTCdev unlock tool, at least for the time being. A build of TWRP for the AT&T model is already available on XDA. Hat tip to Google+ reader Brian Haslip.

Wow, developers aren't wasting any time when it comes to cracking open new high-end hardware. Just a few days after a root method was released for the Galaxy S5, the folks at Team Win Recovery Project have already prepared TWRP for both the international and Sprint models of the new HTC One M8.

For custom ROM addicts, the custom recovery is an essential tool, and lately Team Win Recovery Project (usually shortened to "TWRP") has been the most popular option as of late. Today Team Win upgraded the core recovery to version 2.7.0.0, with more new features than you can shake a stick at. The latest version is available for dozens of officially-supported devices on the Project website.

Among the more interesting additions in TWRP 2.7 are sideloading from the /tmp directory on encrypted devices, support for a mouse via a USB OTG connection (for devices with broken touchscreens), haptic feedback for buttons and finishing actions, and caps lock support for keyboards.
