Team Win Recovery Project, or TWRP for short, is just about the only custom recovery worth using in 2017. It does everything most people need, works on a massive number of devices, and can be themed. The last time we covered TWRP, it added support for the Pixel 2 and a few other phones. Now the recovery is officially available for some of ASUS' new phones, and Xiaomi's first Android One device.

TWRP is still the best custom recovery available, giving Android users a better way to flash ROMs and back up their devices. Part of the reason it's so great is that can be ported to new devices fairly easily. Since we last covered the project earlier this month, a few more phones have been added to the roster. Read More
Forget about those damn Pixel 2 phones. Did you get a shiny new Galaxy Note8 and were you itching to install a custom recovery just so you can make your life easier with custom ROMs and flashing various things on it? Then you want TWRP and TWRP is delivering. Well, at least for the Exynos version. Qualcomm variants need not apply, yet.
You can grab TWRP for the Exynos Galaxy Note8 (greatlte), but it's not the only device that's added TWRP support recently. Also on the list are the Xiaomi Redmi 3S/Prime/3X (land), the Xiaomi Redmi 4A (rolex), the ZUK Edge (z2x), (update) and the Elephone P9000 (p9000). Read More
TWRP recovery continues to add support for more and more devices. Last time we took a look at the project, unofficial builds for the Snapdragon Galaxy S8/S8+ were available (but not for the US models). Over the past few weeks, more phones have been added to the official support list.
First up is the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which was released two months ago in the US. The Xiaomi Redmi 4X, Lenovo K33, and two variants of the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro (C900F/Y and China) are now supported as well. Finally, those builds for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ we previously covered are now official. Read More
Despite all having the name "Samsung Galaxy S8," there are in fact several different variants of Samsung's flagship phone. But all the S8 devices worldwide have one of two processors - the Qualcomm 835, or the Exynos 8895. TWRP for the Exynos models arrived in April, but now it's time for the Snapdragon variants.

One of the better aspects of the OnePlus 5 is that the phone is pretty developer-friendly. There are already a few custom ROMs and kernels available for the device, as well as unofficial builds of TWRP to flash them. Thankfully, TWRP has begun officially supporting the device, so you won't need to use unofficial ports anymore. Read More
When we last looked at TWRP, the project had added support for a whopping 17 new devices. Granted, most of those were variations of three Samsung devices, but it's still impressive. Since then, three more devices have been added to the official builds - including the LG G6. Read More
As great as LineageOS and other ROMs are, they wouldn't be possible without a custom recovery available for the device. TWRP is usually pretty quick to support new devices, with older phones and tablets being added to the list frequently too. Since our last post, TWRP has added support for 17 more devices, including the LeEco Le Pro 3 and Xiaomi Mi 6. Read More
It doesn't take long for TWRP to show up on a new major phone or tablet. For example, it took almost no time at all for the custom recovery to become available for the Exynos Galaxy S8 and S8+. Now TWRP fully supports HTC's latest flagship, the U11, plus a handful of other phones. Read More
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ haven't been in the hands of consumers for long, but as with almost any Android phone, developers are eager to flash custom recoveries and ROMs onto it. As such, it should come as little surprise that TWRP is already available for the Exynos Galaxy S8 and S8+. Read More
