* Your warranty is now void.
* We're not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.

Red Wolf Recovery is custom recovery based on TWRP source code, however some things are working here slightly different then you might expected. The main objective of this project is to provide stable recovery with features which you have never seen before in a recovery and which have not been accepted for adding to the official source code of TWRP. This recovery is also first recovery on the world with password protection.

Translated to EN, CZ, PL & RU
- Password protection
- Flashlight
- Built-in latest Magisk, SuperSU & AromaFM
- Lots of built-in scripts from community
- Ability to activate Night mode
- You can backup all partitions
- Ability to activate tap to wake
- Ability to set custom id for backup folder & ADB
- You can flash boot logo & modem directly in the recovery
- Automatic deactivation of the stock recovery
- You can change the current governor on which recovery is currently running
- Automatic MIUI boot image patching
- Recovery can notify you about the completed backup/restore/installation using the notification diode.
- Support "set on boot" settings.

* Changes for security reasons *

Please remember that recovery with password protection isn't still a full protection for your phone. Red Wolf can only prevent unauthorized access to your device from recovery. But your device can be still reinstalled using fastboot or Miflash.
