Okay... I could use something like this but, just 2 questions.

1) Will the results from the Emulator also reflect those results from a TWRP Recovery?

2) For the CWM that this Emulator is based upon, are the results based upon for the last known release version or for all release versions?

Thanks!

The GUI is merely a theme, based on latest recoveries

So could this be used to flash ROMs onto an unrootable device? Not "unrootable", but USB debugging doesn't work on it so I can't root it but there are ROMs for it

No this is just an emulator, it doesn't do anything to a real device

Great work as alawys.

I have idea on my mind several months ago!
Can you make twrp theme emulator so we can test themes on the run.
Or you can make this open source so I can make it my self.

Very nice. If the ability to emulate aroma installers could be added it would be really cool.
