Since, @#define doesn't has the device anymore and I was working on updates of TWRP Recovery, so after some talks with him, I am making a new thread where I will maintain TWRP Releases.

OFFICIAL TWRP HTC EXPLORER PAGE

Latest Release - v 2.7.0.0 by @thewisenerd

What's new in 2.7.0.0:
  • Faster graphics rendering by disabling alpha blending on fully opaque objects thanks to Tassadar
  • Allow sideloading from /tmp on encrypted devices
  • Check for a crypto footer before asking for a password to prevent user confusion
  • Additional checks for validity to auto generated backup names
  • Text wrap in the console output
  • Proper caps lock support in the keyboard
  • Mouse support via USB OTG for devices with a broken digitizer
  • Improve scanning of storage locations for OpenRecoveryScript
  • Haptic feedback for buttons, keyboard, and vibration at the end of longer running actions
  • Fixed ext4 wiping when no selinux contexts are defined for that partition (e.g. sd-ext)
  • Update SuperSU to 1.93 and improve installation process
  • Added selinux contexts restoration to fix permissions
  • Load RTC offset on Qualcomm devices to fix the date/time in recovery
  • USB Mass Storage fixes Add SELinux support checking
  • Add Disk Usage class to better handle excluded folders (e.g. Google Music cache)
  • Add 4.4 AOSP decrypt support
  • Add some toolbox utilities to TWRP (namely to support SELinux functions not supported in busybox)
  • Various SELinux fixes and bug fixes
  • Removed Superuser prebuilt binary and Superuser.apk (By me not in Official TWRP) to trim the recovery size.(Thanks for the idea @galaxyfreak )

Question
Was anyone able to get fastboot working?
I remember it working in my home builds, but I don't recollect it working in this recovery though.

Is this "bug" only for me?

Edit: NVM, borked USB

edit: spoke too soon. Yes. adb *is* broken. works at times, doesn't work, at times.

edit: let's put this post to good use:
Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/sx..._21may2014.img

Don't give the crap that you're even interested in changelog. You just need something that works. You'd not even know if this is just the same file, with a different name.

For those who really are, go over to https://github.com/omnirom/android_b...ts/android-4.4, and check the commits from Mar 28, 2014.

Nand recovery partition burned
For those who are encountering NAND Recovery Partition burned.

booting on recovery,
TWRP logo shows
then go black screen
then TWRP logo shows again
then stucked at TWRP Logo.


SOLUTION:

  1. BOOT into BOOTLOADER.
  2. FLASH Latest PhilZ Touch Recovery (here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...54&postcount=3)
  3. Download flash_erase.txt *rename and remove .txt* it's a binary file.(here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...9&d=1358514526)
  4. Flash any rom that has working ADB.
  5. Push flash_erase on /system/xbin then set and fix permissions.
    Code:
    adb push flash_erase system/xbin/
    adb shell
    su
    cd system/xbin/
    chomd 755 flash_erase
  6. Reboot
  7. Then perform a NAND Recovery on /recovery partition. (Needs USB debugging enabled and Root access on Apps and ADB)
    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    cd /system/xbin
    ./flash_erase -N /dev/mtd/mtd1 0 0
  8. FLASH TWRP Recovery.


NOTE: IF YOU GOT WHOLE YOUR MTD PARTITION BURNED. flash_erase mtd0 to mtd6.
