The most up to date TWRP available for the M7SPR, with enhancements others are now migrating to their repos / phones (battery feedback, performance, etc.).
With permission graciously granted by the venerable @Dees_Troy I am opening this thread for further developing and maintaining the TeamWin Recovery Project (TWRP or TWRP2) for the Sprint HTC One (m7wls) device.
Want to Donate to me?
Cool! Not required, but I certainly appreciate all donations. I do risk my phone with every build I test, so some backup bucks for a dev phone (or even a dev phone if you have one to send) would be great. To donate, click my Donate button or just Go Here.
** General Description and Use **
Team Win Recovery Project 2.x, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. 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. For more details, look to @Dees_Troy's original description.
Why the new thread? Because TWRP2 is now as up to date for Sprint HTC Ones (m7wls) as any other device. Indeed the issues so many have complained about regarding the first release of the recovery for our phone are all fixed. @Dees_Troy once wrote, quite accurately, that anyone could compile and fix the issues if they wanted because TWRP2 is fully open source. Well, that's the point -- it's done now, and I plan to keep updating, regularly, this recovery.
What Works (see also Change Logs and Issues List):
It appears everything, including OTG Support, off-line charging with notifications (LED and UI), screen-blank, and much more. Alas, bugs happen so if you find one, please post the relevant information about the bug here and create an issue on the github project for TWRP2 Sources given below. Devs, please use the updater-binary provided in this thread. Please read the "TWRP2 Things to Watch Out For" section in Change Logs and Issues List for details on why.
Reported Issues, Recent Updates and Things To Watch Out For: Read the Change Logs and Issues List.
To save you some headaches -- seriously -- read the Change Logs and Issues List -- particularly dealing with backups on newer versions like this and older versions, e.g., 2.6.3 or below.
FIRST AND FOREMOST NOTICE:
SECOND (AND JUST AS 'FOREMOST'), We all should recognize and give generous thanks to @Dees_Troy and the contributors to Team-Win-Recovery-Project ("TWRP"). Further, the same recognition and thanks should go to Steve Kondik And Koushik Dutta and team for creating CyanogenMod. Both of those projects are the basis of all TWRP builds you download here. Between these giants we get to reap huge benefits and just add that which we need. In short, any work I do here is merely standing on the shoulders of those mentioned above. To see the history of TWRP on our Sprint HTC Ones, look to this thread. Finally, give thanks to @kushdeck for his initial work on the device tree for m7wls devices.
** PREREQUISITES **
1) A rooted, Sprint HTC One (m7wls) Android phone;
2) The phone has an unlocked bootloader.
If you don't know what the above means, don't try to install this recovery by yourself -- that's why we have the Sprint HTC One Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting thread.
** INSTALLING **
Install through fastboot. If you don't know how to do that, you should not yet try to do so or even download this recovery. This is not a support thread for installing recoveries, it is a development thread for developing and enhancing the TWRP2 recovery for m7wls devices. To learn about installing recoveries, please post to the Sprint HTC One Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting thread.
The sources for the entire recovery are open source and you can build your own if you like. To do so, read How to compile TWRP touch recovery. For the specific sources necessary for the Sprint HTC One (m7wls) I keep sources up to date here:
