One major bug I came across, is it will no longer flash roms. Like, regardless of what the rom is it just won't flash it, it spits out
assert failed: get prop("ro.product.device") == "
E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard
,
and I know these roms all work since it was flashing them beforehand. Just thought I'd let you know

*Edit*
So any rom other than G2Slim won't flash for me. CM10.1, Flinny's CM11, etc. It's so odd
*Edit 2*
I installed CWM v5 again just to make sure it wasn't a problem with the roms themselves or my sd card, and things install fine, so it must be a random bug with twrp, hopefully a very rare one at that
Check out my HTC Desire Z/T-Mobile G2 YouTube thread Here!
Current Phone: Google Nexus 4. Android L or OmniRom.
Current ROM on HTC Desire Z: Either G2 Bliss v1.0.1, or Sensei v1.3.x

I just tried and found a similar result, without looking into it much I see there are a couple update-binaries used with various ROMs and this build works for one and not the other, at least that's what I see so far as I'm coaching my friend on how to do this as the phone is with him on the other side of town right now.
I'll look into a fix for this as it would be nice to be able to flash all Roms not just some, thanks for the bug report!

Default RE: TWRP Touch recovery - 2.6.3.0

Fix permissions and terminal work fine, I'll try a theme if I can work out how to do it but I don't have a spare SD card I can test partitioning on. All in all great work

Thanks for running those tests, with school and not having my g2 in front of me I haven't had a chance to pick up this project, but I should have my phone back shortly. One of the things I was planning to do (after all functions are 100%) was make a few themes, which is quite easy if your interested

It surprising how customizable and fun a recovery can be so if you get around to it I will for sure link any you make and hopefully will have a few of my on in due time

Just tried a theme, works fine. I would make some but I have no working PC right now. Might be able to unpack and edit an existing one on device though

Needed to get a recovery compatible with SELinux support in order to install latest CM11 Alpha 3 (Flinny's).
Works fine. None of the errors above when installing CM11 and gapps.

Great work!

sorry for that, I'm sure it's a stupid question, but just to be sure...
there is no different way except flashing this .img using a pc...right? I tried using TWRP app last night but it wants to know which device is and it's not listed

thank you a lot

Alex

If you want I'll make you a flashable.zip or you can use a terminal emulator on your phone, just download to SD card and name it recovery.img
Then open up emulator
su
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
