I'm not responsible of your Incorrect flashing of a recovery that can brick your device! Do not install this recovery if you don't know what you are doing with your phone.

This is latest TWRP build for LG P500 which have full touch support.

It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Common FAQ
  • Can I restore my CWM/Amon ra backups on TWRP?

No you can't. but other way is: flash CWM, restore a backup, flash TWRP, create new backup, repeat.

I have tested install,wipe and backup and it's working good, If you have found a bug post here but don't post common twrp bugs.


- Dees_Troy and other all Twrp team - for making this recovery
- Cyanogenmod team - used cm7 device folder to compile this recovery

Just flashed it. Nice job!
No bugs so far, but don't take my word for it since I only played around with it for five minutes.

Noticed so far:
1. Very quick to exit recovery and reboot into the system (less than a second)
2. A lot of customizations and nice interface

I love it! Finally someone did.
The other day, I was thinking of compiling CWM 6 Touch from source but I guess I don't need it now
