Default [c1505] If phone battery dies, TWRP becomes CWM.

If I turn phone off and then on, reboot, or reboot to recovery, I have TWRP, but if the battery drains and the phone dies, the phone won't charge and I have to hold power button when I put the charger in (phone loops on Sony logo otherwise) and it has CWM installed. Also, if phone is just turned off, putting the charger in doesn't cause loop.

I have CM10 (1.1 from the sourceforge project).

Not an urgent problem, but one that has me absolutely baffled. Having to keep 2 recovery files is kind of annoying and a waste of space.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Next time, before jumping in feet first, you'd do well to read the thread properly.

You'd see that you can install any of the two recoveries.

Actually, the "1.1 from sourceforge project" is hsr0's CM10, which by default comes with two recoveries, TWRP and CWM. You can enter either one like this:

Turn the phone on.
>> Bottom LED will flash blue
If you want TWRP, press volume down or up.
>> Bottom LED will fade, then flash green
If you want CWM, press volume down or up
>> Bottom LED will fade again and phone will boot to CM10.

As for the space thing, don't worry. Your phone has a fixed amount of space dedicated to the boot partition, which contains the recovery. This is completely independent of the ROM's free space. Think of it this way: there are three cars, a boot car, a system car and a data car. Your apps, music, and all will be in the data car. Your Android system files and all will be in the system car. Your kernel and recovery are in the boot car. These cars are completely independent of each other, and even if the boot car is empty, you can't put a data passenger in it. So might as well use it, right?
Insert really cool signature here...

Oh that's awesome! I wasn't aware you could have both recoveries at once.

Is there any reason to use one over the other? Or is it simply preference?

Yep. Preference

But I like to use CWM for making a NANDROID, because you can backup to the external sd. I haven't found this option in TWRP.
I like to use TWRP for flashing .zip's. It's just easy. Plus, wiping anything is a breeze. Oh, and touch is working.

Preference...

Have a nice day!
