Will we ever have a working TWRP recovery?

Doesn't seem like it but I'm not too concerned since I have had great luck with Philz and Touch CWM.

Too bad. I like philz lots but its cwm based and romtoolbox don't get along.

TWRP
As someone whose previous device had a TWRP recovery the only thing I really miss is that it allowed internal and external sd card access while booted. That always made for easy switching of roms. I know I bork up something at least once a week while tinkering and have to reflash recovery because I deleted my data without a working rom backup on my sd card.

With philz never had a problem with that app as I use it to change bootanimations and fonts.

With Philz recovery you can always access both. Only takes a few minutes to switch between roms

What I meant is that while in TWRP you can unmount your external and internal sd card and have it recognized as an mass storage device by windows. Thus allowing you to move roms, backups etc onto your sd card. Once you're finished with moving files you can remount your sd card and go about your business. I mess something up at least once a week and end up without a usable backup after wiping data in recovery. In the TWRP world I can just copy over a good backup without leaving the recovery. In Philz and cwm recoveries I end up having to reboot to the bootloader, reflash recovery, pull out my sd card and copy my backup to the sd card to get back where I need to be. It's nothing horrible but it does usually add 5 or 10 minutes to the process.

Philz has that option but I can't seem to be able to mount it correctly ,
I hope there will be a fix ,as I have been in situations in where I had a Bootlooping phone until I accessed my PC
If I recall correctly I think I heard someone built a version for us, but had touch points off coordination

TWRP 2.6.3.1
The Photon Q TWRP works on our AHDs but has offset touch-points. It's still very usable once you figure out the offsets (down/left).

Attached is a flashable ZIP if you want to try it out. Just flash in recovery and reboot. You can always flash back to Philz if you don't like the touch issue.

Enjoy!
