Team Win Recovery Project 2.7, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It’s 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.
You can use this recovery with any android version upto 4.4. This includes all sense,cm,stock roms etc

Add GUI option to change or repair file systems on individual partitions. The change is destructive so backup your data including internal sdcard first. This option should make it a little easier to migrate a device from ext4 -> f2fs, for instance. You will find this option under Wipe -> Advanced Wipe, then select only one partition and then press the Repair or Change File System button. If a developer has added f2fs support for your device and we don't have it in TWRP, please contact me via PM to arrange for it to be added.

Is this the same version i installed with the toolkit today?
There i get many grafic glitches on my desire x.
The graphic glitches are probably related to flashing unstable roms and not wiping after new install as i'm using this recovery and experience no graphic glitches.
and the recovery from toolkit is most likely the older twrp recovery
