Zip Signature Verification
Zip md5 Verification (looks for file with zipname.zip.md5)
Ability to flash multiple zips in one go
Ability to select which individual partitions to backup, and restore.

Ability to auto restore GAPPS on zip flash (for CM based ROMS)
Ability to auto reboot after successful flashes (for the lazy)
Some devices utilize their capacitive buttons in recovery.

Menu - Advanced Menu
Back - Up a Menu Level
Search - Select Current Selection
Battery Level and Timestamp (Better safe than sorry)
HTC Dumlock Instructions:
Install the build of TWRP using your method of choice, but you must actually flash TWRP to recovery. No fastboot booting it. We need it in recovery so that this build of TWRP will be flashed to your boot. This new build of TWRP has features in it to easily restore your original boot.
Reboot into recovery.
Make a backup of your phone.
Tap HTC Dumlock. (If you don't see HTC Dumlock then you need to remove any custom TWRP theme that you might be using.)
Tap Install HTC Dumlock. This will install the app and binaries needed to make everything work nicely.
Reboot your device.
Find and open the HTC Dumlock app.
If/when prompted, give the app root (SuperUser) permissions.
Tap the Execute HTC Dumlock button.
Wait patiently for a couple of minutes. It takes a little while.
If your device doesn't reboot automatically, reboot it manually. Reboot it normally. DO NOT reboot it to recovery.
You should now be in your recovery, but your recovery is flashed into boot.
Tap HTC Dumlock.
Tap Restore Original Boot.
Use your recovery like normal. Flash a new kernel. Restore a backup with a different kernel. Do whatever you please!
Note, you must repeat steps 8 through 17 EVERY TIME you need to flash boot.
Copy backup to PC suing a PC:
chmod -R 777 /data/media/TWRP
Now you can copy your backup over

Various other bug fixes and tweaks
Unlock bootloader at http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader/ Make sure fastboot is unchecked in power options and turn phone completely off
Boot into HBOOT then Fastboot
From fastboot. Use command "fastboot erase cache"
From fastboot. Use command "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"
Flyhalf205 - there will be another problem with the recoveries too. HTC is storing preloaded stuff on /data. So the recovery must not format /data. Instead it must delete the necessary folders like on the One X+.
