Team Win Recovery Project 2.8, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Team Win team started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of their own features. It is a fully touch driven user interface, no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.
DISCLAIMER : Team Win team and myself will never ever be responsible for any damage you do to your device !
IMPORTANT NOTE : Because of a S4 mini device specific bug in TWRP v2.8 (recovery not always booting) i am offering TWRP v2.7 again and i will build v2.8 again when this issue will be sorted out... Thank you for your understanding !

-> @F4k <= F2FS support + automatic FS detection... Thank you !
ANNOUNCEMENT : My TWRP builds now feature automatic FS detection by @F4k; this means that theorically, any mix of EXT4/F2FS FS for /system, /cache and /data is supported by each build BUT STABLE ones are EXT4 oriented and DEV ones are F2FS oriented (STABLE will have limitations with F2FS and DEV will have limitations with EXT4...)
NOTE : I am not affiliated with any of the teams mentioned above...
=> Option 1 : Your device does not have any custom recovery yet ! Please download the zipped .tar.md5 file of your choice below, then flash it through Odin (Windows OS).
=> Option 2 : A custom recovery has already been flashed to your device ! Please download the flashable .zip file of your choice below and flash it from recovery as usual.
<= BIG RED WARNING : If you are coming from regular / Philz CWM or legacy TWRP, then please do prefer the Odin way ! Thank you !
<= TO GT-I9192 users : Your device has been reported as compatible with 3G and LTE builds, you can install any build you want ;)
- => STABLE branch : 1 version per device built for stability, full crypto support... EXT4 <= BUT features automatic FS detection by @F4k, so there is basic F2FS support in it with some limitations...

-> Custom TWRP v2.7.x.x JB/KK enabled for S4 mini (LTE variant) | STABLE (2014-10-03) | Odin & flashable .zip
-> NO MORE TRYOUTS FOR THE MOMENT
- => DEV branch : 2 versions per device including an ALL-F2FS one, should be as stable as the regular one..., no crypto support at all ! F2FS <= BUT features automatic FS detection by @F4k, so there is basic EXT4 support in it with some limitations...
F2FS -> /data only :
-> Custom TWRP v2.7.x.x JB/KK enabled for S4 mini (3G variant) | DEV#1 (2014-10-03) | flashable .zip

INFO 1 : STABLE branch DOWNLOADS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE DOWNLOADS TAB OF THIS PROJECT ;)
INFO 2 : Current DEV branch feature is optimized F2FS support (only /data -> first version AND /system + /cache + /data -> second version [ALL F2FS])... :good: :silly: :cool:
INFO 3 : The 'take a screenshot from recovery' feature is now merged upstream so it is available in both branches for each S4 mini variant... :good:
Happy flashing :D
NOTE : I've started building it for myself, now i'm sharing it ! I use it everyday and still do not have any issue ! Anyway you can feel free to report back ;) Any feedback will ever be greatly appreciated !
PS : Flashing KK ROMs with this recovery is OK (it's its main purpose...), Flashing JB ones has not been tested yet so please report back if anything goes wrong with JB ROMs... Thank you !
Have fun with it ! :good:
