OnePlus 3 and Xiaomi Mi 5 receive TeamWin Recovery Project (TWRP) support

Some folks prefer to run a custom ROM on their phone than stick with the stock software. I'm one of them. But you need a good custom recovery in order to get the job done. That's why it's good news whenever we see more devices gain support from the TeamWin Recovery Project.

TWRP adds support for 8 Huawei devices: P9 and P9 Plus, Mate 8, Honor 4X, Honor 5C, Honor 6 and 6 Plus, and Mediapad M2 8.0

Huawei's recent fleet of devices is very interesting thanks to a high value and specs for money ratio. The one thing the company does though that we don't really like in our own niche of Android lovers is its Emotion UI and all the weird choices of design and features that it bundles in it. That can all be solved with a custom ROM and the first step to those ROMs is through installing a custom recovery such as TWRP.

The TWRP team is celebrating July 4 by giving your Huawei device its own independence, that is if it's one of these 8 models.

TWRP comes to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (MediaTek), LG L90, and Android One 3rd Edition (General Mobile 5 Plus)

Midrange devices are really the perfect target for something like TWRP. They're capable devices, but they usually suffer from intolerably bloated interfaces and/or get updates way too late or not at all. A custom recovery is the starting point from which any enterprising user can start flashing mods and custom ROMs onto their device to get over any of the previously mentioned hurdles.

And so it's nice to see TWRP come to 3 Android phones that count somewhere in the midrange category. The first is the MediaTek version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (the Snapdragon version got TWRP a couple of months ago).

TWRP Released For Five New Devices, Including Xiaomi Mi Max, NVIDIA Shield Portable, Moto G4, And More

It's time for a hot and fresh batch of TWRP releases, everyone. Today, we've got five new devices that now officially support TeamWin Recovery Project, for all of your flashing and recovery needs. Those devices and their respective links are, in no particular order:

As something in the way of a housekeeping note, the NVIDIA Shield Portable has long had unofficial TWRP support, but this is the first time it has actually received a proper, stable TWRP release. Surprising, I guess. The Xiaomi Mi Max just launched, so TWRP contributors wasted no time there, and the same goes for the Moto G4 (the G4 Plus should have no need for a separate recovery image - they're basically the same phone in regard to firmware).

Amazon Kindle Fire HD (3rd Gen) And Huawei Honor 7 Receive TWRP Support

The Huawei Honor 7 may be a flagship device, but compared to some of the competition, it doesn't cost all that much. The same can kinda be said for Amazon's Kindle Fire HD. That makes each device an okay one to muck around with.

Before you start flashing ROMs, you need a decent custom recovery. The Team Win Recovery Project is more than decent. In many ways, this is the top option available right now.

TWRP Comes To The Second Generation Of Android One Devices (Qualcomm And MediaTek)

Android One devices usually get updates pretty quickly — that's the whole premise of their existence after all. But if you're the kind of person who isn't fully convinced by the speed of OTA rollouts to your phone or even the stock flavor of Android that your device shipped with, you might want to tinker with custom ROMs or flash mods or try weird things with your phone. The safest way to do that is through a reliable custom recovery that also lets you back up your current ROM or setup and restore it should things go wrong.

TWRP is one of the most popular and reliable recoveries for Android, and it just became available for the second generation of Android One devices, whether they have a Qualcomm or a Mediatek chipset. This means that it's compatible with the MediaTek-running Lava Pixel V1, Infinix Hot 2 X510, Bq Aquaris A4.5, as well as the Snapdragon-boasting Cherry Mobile One G1, General Mobile 4G, General Mobile 5 Plus, and i-mobile IQ II.

Team Win Recovery Project Is Now Available For Xiaomi's Redmi Note 3

Thanks to enthusiast-focused hardware, low prices, and easy-to-modify software, Xiaomi's phones have become extremely popular among ROM fans in China. (And not for nothing, more than a few of them might want something aside from Xiaomi's heavily-modified Android user interface.) One of the latter low-price phones from the company is the Redmi Note 3, and it now has its own custom recovery from the standard-bearers at Team Win.

TWRP Is Now Available For The Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge (Exynos Versions)

One of the benefits of buying into popular flagships is that all the odds of community support are in your favor. Provided that the manufacturer wasn't being a colossal pain, you shouldn't have to wait long to see some enterprising developers and modders provide a root method, a custom recovery, a bootloader unlock, and more custom ROMs than you dare imagine.

That's the case with the latest Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The devices have been "officially" on sale for less than a week and yet here is Team Win ready with its TWRP custom recovery for the Exynos version (the international variant) of the phone.
