ROM flashers and root fanatics who own a few more obscure Android devices have new options this morning. Official, straight from the source builds of the ubiquitous Team Win Recovery Project custom recovery are now available for the unlocked, dual-SIM card version of the HTC One M7, the carrier-customized version of the LG G3 for US Cellular, and the LG Optimus Fuel. Wait, the what? Let me check my notes... yup, says right here, "Optimus Fuel."


Not ringing any bells here.

The One M7 and G3 variants should be pretty self-explanatory, but the Optimus Fuel is so uninteresting it flew under Android Police radar when it was released for the Tracfone budget carrier way back in June of this year. It's a low-end model that uses Tracfone to piggy-back off of Verizon bands. While that's novel in and of itself (Verizon MVNOs are rare, and most Tracfone models use AT&T bands), the 3.5-inch screen, 1.2GHz processor, and a mere 512MB of RAM mean it won't be running CyanogenMod 12 nightlies any time soon.

But hey, with a custom-made recovery from TWRP, you're welcome to try! Recoveries for all three devices in the standard Fastboot flashable image or, if you're rooted, via the official TWRP app. Happy hacking, folks.
