Info 2 (CWM)ClockWorkMod Vs (TWRP)Team-Win Recovery Project

CWM VS TWRP
About:
First Comparison between CWM and TWRP !!
Personal Experience:
I have had many issues with CWM in restoring and backup but it could be that the backup had a different format than the formatted partition(ext3,ext4...etc). The BIG issue I experienced last night(8/2/2013) when I backed up stock JB(4.1.2) on my GS3 using CWM 5.5.0.4(which is incompatible with JB) and it caused a bootloop I had to wipe everything. I never Tried TWRP but it seems better.

If any thing is wrong in my comparison or you think something is missing PLEASE inform me. Thanks

On my note I use twrp , and it works great , on my wife sII i have cwm , works fine , on my A500 ,I cant get twrp to function right , I have a custom (cwm) recovery and it works great, on my kindle twrp , it all depends on the device I think and maybe the rom your using too! I like the ease of twrp and how it functions better!

I have had problems with both cwm6 and twrp..
But I like cwm6..because you can hold a large number of backups.. especially when you have a SD ext 2GB.
Number of backups cwm6 twrp
1 3GB. 1.5GB
2 3.4 3
3 3.8 4.5
4 4.2 6GB
Edit:
I take back what I said about cwm6.
Though 4 backups cost 4 GB, if one fails, all will fail. And it did.. miserably.

Yeah thats the problem I hate it when backups fail the best solution is "orange backup" from play store does nandroid backup with no need to boot to recovery

DONATE TO ME
I have used both.

Experienced some problems restoring back-ups with CWM on my old LG Optimus One.

Now, on my Atrix HD I had TWRP, which looks very nice, but I'm kind of used to CWM.

Greetings,

CWM era has ended.
Its either twrp or Philz (though I also doubt Philz-which has features now -but it's based on cwm ,so it's eventually bound to rot in time,when twrp brings new and new features. )
