Hello folks,

Since a long time now...we all are using mostly these three recoveries:

1)Clockworkmod(CWM) Recovery (by @Koush)
2)PhilZ-Touch Recovery (by @Phil3759)
3)TWRP Recovery (by TeamWin)


...for getting our ROM flashing and other jobs done.

This thread is meant to compare these three recoveries in terms of it's global usage. It's just like a survey.

So...everybody is requested to vote on the poll for their most used recovery. Thanks

Just a few words before you vote:

You are welcomed to post the reason for liking and using the recovery you voted for. But please don't post something like: "I have only Advanced version (without any GUI and Touch) of PhilZ-Touch Recovery for my device, so I like TWRP", "Touch doesn't work in my TWRP, so I like CWM", "I have the latest version of CWM but not of PhilZ-Touch Recovery for my device, So I vote for CWM". These reasons are because your device is not officially supported by the developer of the recovery. Vote here only if you are using/used the officially supported build of the recovery.

Recovery is a choice. So, everybody is gonna like different recovery for their different aspects/advantages. Just vote on the Poll and leave a post so that we can know that which of these recoveries are mostly used by users and why. Multiple options are enabled in the poll but please try to vote in only one option...for the recovery you use the most.


Please NOTE: This thread is no way meant to insult any of the developer(s) of above recoveries. This thread is just to know the popularity of these recoveries among the users...can be rather called a 'survey'.

Vanilla CWM is no match for Philz Advanced edition - way more features and fast backup speed if exfat modules have been incorporated. TWRP comes a close second with its file manager and terminal, and is also very quick

I respect your opinion.

But, Are you sure? I hope Vanilla=Stock.
Can you just tell me a feature that's more in vanilla cwm (than philz-touch)?

I do agree that it's code is very neat (really) and the UI is simple...but when it comes to features...TWRP and PhilZ-Touch wins (Acc. to me).

However, cwm has started addition of new features like- Swipe-Touch, Menu color's changing, etc nowadays.

I wouldnt say either is superior to the other. They all have their own lil niches and ppl like each for whatever reason.

They are all good recoveries and choice is good.

TWRP because PhilZ errors out on CM-11 update
I just installed TWRP on my P3113 because PhilZ-Touch 6.53.6 could not update CM-11 to the 20140810 nightly & the recovery log says that the file could not be found after logging lots of errors.

PhilZ was looking in as: /sdcard/0/cmupdater/cm-11-20140810-NIGHTLY-p3110.zip
whereas the file was in: /storage/emulated/0/cmupdater

Interesting in that the 1st CM-11 was installed by PhilZ by using PhilZ to do a fresh install.......

PhilZ looks to be quite nice but something need to be changed in the location checking for the CM-11's version; don't know if other versions has a change of naming directories for the Tab 2 7 P3113/P3110.

Will be staying with TWRP for now; kinda like the PhilZ tho.

For my opinion, PhylZ can will be the better Recovery because if dev make compatibility theme and add TWRP options supports to PhylZ, it will make a full Recovery
