TeamWin Recovery Project, or twrp for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features that we deemed missing from current recoveries. After a lot of hard work for weeks, we are happy to announce the release of twrp in anticipation of unrEVOked & AlphaRev's revolutionary release.

Key Features:
- Clean, simple, intuitive Menu System
- Ability to save custom recovery settings
º Default partitions to back up
º Default zip folder location
º Default color theme (lots to choose from) (Thanks to ffolkes!)
º Default Time Zone (for more accurate time stamps; US time zones only for now)
º Zip Verification
- Ability to select which individual partitions to backup, and restore.
- Ability to choose compression or no compression backups.
º Compression takes longer of course, but you save roughly half the space. EVO3D's stock system uncompressed is ~800mb, 380mb compressed. You choose.
- Ability to auto restore GAPPS on zip flash (for CM based ROMS)
- Ability to auto reboot after successful flashes (for the lazy)
- Capacitate Button functions (removed for now)
º Home - Main Menu
º Menu - Advanced Menu
º Back - Up a Menu Level
º Search - Select Current Selection
- Battery Level and Timestamp (battery meter not working right for now)

Known Issues:
- Battery % issue is still there until we can fix the kernel
- Capacitative Buttons are disabled for now, while we fix HTC's broken kernel.
- While working on twrp, TeamWin's top race horse ran off, if you find him please let us know. (he must be getting really really lonely now) - Our horse was found by mttneedham, thanks for returning him safely! -

As usual, use at your own risk. TeamWin is not responsible for anything bad that may occur from using twrp. We do however take responsible for the awesomeness that comes with it. Don't be a d3rp and use twrp for bad. With great power, comes great responsibility.

Special Shout Outs:

Lightbulb FAQ

Install as a Flashable Zip? [RECOMMENDED]
  1. Download flashable zip from the OP and rename it "" (without the quotes)
  2. Place in the root of the sdcard
  3. Power off phone (make sure you turn off hot boot or pull the battery when it's off)
  4. Power on the phone holding power and volume down
  5. Follow the prompts to flash it
  6. Delete .zip ( after booting
  7. Enjoy

How to install with Fastboot:
  1. Download the fastboot binary for your computer from HTC
  2. Connect your phone and boot it into fastboot
  3. Run fastboot with the command
    fastboot flash recovery path/to/recovery-twrp-shooter-1.0.0.img

How do I use MD5 checking?
First you need a .md5 file for the .zip you are trying to flash. This can be generated by running:
md5sum >
This will generate a file with the checksum in it. It is important to do this from the directory containing the .zip so the file looks like lkadjflkadjflksadfjsal and not alkjdalfkdjsfdsflkajfd /subdirectory/ since those directories can change.

Place this .zip and .zip.md5 file in the same directory and try to flash. It should show the md5 is being verified and flash if it checks out. Twrp will always TRY to verify the md5 file if it's found. If it is not found, it will say 'none found' and let you flash UNLESS you have 'Force md5' checked.

Error message when making phones calls
This appears to be due to Revolutionary and not our recovery, but for everyone's reference just stay on the line after the error plays. You will then be connected to Sprint where they will walk you through re-syncing your phone with the network. Start to end you are looking at like 5 min.

Battery Level Indicator is not working
It was tested on other devices, but appears to only show 10% right now on the EVO 3D. Requires a kernel fix on our part. Hang tight.

Error when flashing superuser zips
Flash this one instead:

Does this back up Wimax partition?
That is an option if you chose. Recommended to make at least one backup of just wimax and store that somewhere safe.

Why don't the buttons at the bottom work?
It seems the kernel source HTC gave us has issue with the daemon that controls offmode charging. As a result charging was having issues and not showing current current battery levels. That said... we had to make a choice until the issue in the kernel or daemon can be fixed, use the stock kernel (which all testing was done on and everything worked fine with) and lose the buttons at the bottom (touch screen is not configed right in the stock kernel) or use the custom configed kernel compiled from the sopurce HTC gave us. the lesser evil was to make sure charging was working correctly as it's far more important and use the stock kernel.

The screen went black after doing [insert random function]. What is the issue?
When testing the recovery early on we noticed fastboot wasnt a stable way to flash the recovery. Random issues would arise after using the method. As a result and a solution, flashing the recovery via the is recommended to avoid such issues. Please try this as a solution.

I found a bug! What do I do?
Well you're probably going to want to post here and see if other people are having the same issue. We're also going to start tracking bugs on Github along with our project. This will let you see what issues we are aware of. You can submit a bug here: Be sure to include how you came about the issue as well as list your device and how you installed twrp.

Have a great new feature idea for TWRP?
Submit it on our Github page! It'll help us track it and notify you of the progress.

Why should I use this over ClockworkMod or Amon Ra?
While all three recoveries offer roughly the same abilities (backup, restore, flash) we feel like ours adds a bit more in addition to the basics as well as blend some of the more useful features. A few differences to hightlight:
  • USB Mass Storage mode (Not in CWM)
  • Re-organized menus with most commonly used features on top
  • Saveable settings for all preferences selected
  • Date and battery display (configurable timezones)
  • Ability to auto-reboot after flashing
  • Color themes
  • Capacitive button support (Should be back soon)
Go a head and give it a try! You've got nothing to lose. If you don't like it you can always roll back to whatever recovery you want. Of course, shift might go all Emo Pony on us, but he'll get over it.
