Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its 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.

CHANGELOG for 3.2.1-0:
  • minui fixes (cryptomilk)
  • Better android-8.0 compatibility in ROM trees (Dees_Troy)
  • Fix missing library in android-8.0 (nkk71)
  • Fix inconsistent SDCard naming (DevUt)
  • Default to TWRP restore instead of adb backup restore to fix restore on fresh TWRP boot (jlask)

CHANGELOG for 3.1.1-0:
  • Backups will now include adopted storage keys (Dees_Troy)
  • Fixed an adb restore issue (bigbiff)
  • Fixed rebooting when no OS is present (Dees_Troy)
  • Fixed line wrapping in the GUI terminal (_that)
  • Updated TWRP source code to AOSP 7.1.2 (Dees_Troy)Updated TWRP source code to AOSP 7.1.2

CHANGELOG for 3.1.0-0:
  • vold decrypt on a few select HTC devices, TWRP will now attempt to use the system partition's vold and vdc binaries and libraries to decrypt the data partition (nkk71 and CaptainThrowback)
  • adb backup to stream a backup directly to or from your PC, see documentation here (bigbiff)
  • tweak MTP startup routines (mdmower)
  • support new Android 7.x xattrs for backup and restore to fix loss of data after a restore (Dees_Troy)
  • support POSIX file capabilities backup and restore to fix VoLTE on HTC devices and possibly other issues (Dees_Troy)
  • better indicate to users that internal storage is not backed up (Dees_Troy)
  • improve automatic determination of TW_THEME (mdmower)
  • minimal getcap and setcap support (_that)
  • try mounting both ext4 and f2fs during decrypt (jcadduono and Dees_Troy)
  • shut off backlight with power key (mdmower)
  • timeout during FDE decrypt (Dees_Troy and nkk71)
  • support for FBE decrypt and backing up and restoring FBE policies (Dees_Troy)
  • boot slot support (Dees_Troy)
  • TWRP app install prompt during reboot (Dees_Troy)
  • support for AB OTA zips (Dees_Troy)
  • support new Android 7.x log command (Dees_Troy)
  • update recovery sources to AOSP 7.1 (Dees_Troy)
  • numerous bugfixes and improvements by too many people to mention

This build of TWRP uses prebuilt kernel from latest global stable rom so that is mentioned as kernel source

Ah ok, I see. And thanks for the recovery! :good:

EDIT: Oh well, after flashing this one, system doesn't boot anymore in my case. I came from cofface-recovery (3.0.2-0), which worked fine.
Now, booting system just hangs on the screen with the 3 moving dots and apparently never finishes. Hmmm, any idea?

EDIT2: To fix it, I had to re-install 8.2.1.0 global rom. Also, I had downgraded TWRP to 3.0.2-0 again, but maybe this wouldn't have been necessary.

Flash LazyFlasher zip to disable forced encryption after flashing recovery if you are using MIUI

I had to format the USB key as exFAT, and it worked in cofface's version without any problem.

MIUI seems to overwrite TWRP and flash its own recovery again. I recall that I had the same issue at first with my Note 4X (mido), but I don't remember how I made TWRP persistent. For now, I don't want to flash a custom ROM on my dad's rolex, but I'd like TWRP to remain on the device. Any help would be appreciated.
