Team Win Recovery Project 2.8, or twrp2 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. 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.

For official change logs, see here:

http://teamw.in/project/twrp2

For recent code merges, see the Omnirom gerrit here:

If experiencing any boot loops or you don't see the blue-green flash progress bar after you thought you just flashed a recovery, then try the suggestions from this post:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=46806749&postcount=187

concerning dd methods to clear a stuck flag and maybe flash a recovery blob if other methods aren't working for you, particularly if you attempted to use ROM Manager or certain versions of CWM or other programs to flash this recovery.

TWRP Custom Themes [10-10-2013]

I will use this post to post links to custom TWRP themes, both my own and any that users would like to provide me the links to in a PM. This first one is my first attempt at TWRP theming and is just a pretty basic, modified stock theme. It is based on the stock theme for 1280x800 devices. I know everyone won't like it, but it is my first stab at it. Have fun and if anyone would like some instructions for creating a custom theme, then hit me up with a PM and I'll try to help. It is not really difficult, just time consuming and tedious work. There are also links to guides on the twrp site for theming.

Instructions:

Just download, reboot to recovery (you are running TWRP recovery?), flash the theme zip file, reboot, and reboot to recovery again to see the results.

[EDIT] Here's a second one for you:

Awesome thanks a lot. I was wondering if you can do titanium custom zips with twrp? It seems i was not able to previously. Like flashing a user app or titanium itself? :)

Hey all,

I've got a small problem with this version of TWRP 2.6.1.0 that was not present in any of the previous version I've used. The problem is each time I use this version no matter what function is preformed (all works fine) when it comes to restart the system I am presented with the following screen:

*********************************************
*********************************************
Fix Superuser Permissions?
Root permissions appear to be lost.
Fix root permissions now?
(Fixes permissions on su binary & app)

<Do Not Fix>

>> Swipe to fix Root >>
*********************************************
*********************************************​

I've have cleaned SurerSU on system and reinstalled it with no errors, but did not work.
I've downgraded to 2.6.0.0 but still not worked.
I've restored from a working Nandroid Backup but no joy (TWRP 2.5.0.0) and no more permission screens.

Any idea what is going on???

I've only ever seen anything about reinstalling supersu after I've formatted data ( and factory reset ) and am getting ready to reboot, as suggested, because, of course, I've just wiped it out and have no OS or anything installed. I've said yes and I've said no, without any issues either way, but that was previous versions and not this particular one. Maybe your root really was messed up? There was supposedly an updated supersu included in this version or 1 back I believe according to the change logs.

Is there anyway to have this app recognize the USB port (with a thumb drive) that's built into the keyboard attachment ?

Did it work with any previous versions? I've not made any changes that would affect that functionality one way or the other, so if it worked before it should work now, if it didn't then it probably still won't.

Thanks sidneyk :good:

My root still functions flawlessly when using my TF101 no matter if I select Yes fix or No to the fix at reboot system. I now have restore the nandroid back up for earlier today as I have loads of changes that are not on my later backup. Now to look where ive found the download link to twrp2.5-tf101-unofficial.beta which works flawlessly

Cheers

Sorry you had a bad experience with it. Did you also download the md5 file to verify a good download?

Thanks, found it :good:

---------- Post added at 01:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:10 PM ----------

Sorry you had a bad experience with it. Did you also download the md5 file to verify a good download?

Now even 2.5.0.0 is doing the same.

I have now since done the following:

Wiped Cache, Dalvik cache and System,
Flashed KatKiss 4.3 r2.2 #20 ROM'
Flashed Gapps,
Flashed KatKernel 107b,
Flashed TWRP 2.6.1.0,
Wiped Cache & Dalvik Cache
Rebooted with no fix root permission screen,
Rebooted in to recovery, (2.6.1.0)
Deleted older Nandroid Backups,
Created new Nandroid Backup,
when finished creating new backup I am now presented with the fix superuser permission screen,
Swiped to fix superuser,
Reboots and root works fine, (opened up SuperSU v1.60 and no error or updates to binary required, Opened Root Checker Basic v5.0.6 by Joes Krim and verified root access with no errors.)
Rebooted into recover again,
Fixed Permission's (Successful)
selected Reboot button and still taking to the Fix Superuser Permission screen again so Swiped to Fix and TF101 reboots with no screen output,
Again check if root is OK on system, which it is,
Reboot to Recovery again and when in recovery I select reboot then system,
Presented with the Fix Superuser Premission screen again so I select Do Not Fix,
Reboot to system to verify Root which is OK,
Reboot into Recovery for the last time and selected reboot then system which brings up the Fix Superuser screen again,
Swiped to fix, system reboots OK and user (me) gives up :(

Any Ideas :confused:

You can't flash TWRP together with a ROM as flashing TWRP will overwrite the staging partition and the ROM's kernel will then not get flashed. So first flash your ROM, gapps and katkernel, then reboot into your rom, then reboot into recovery to flash TWRP, then reboot again.

Done what you said but no joy. When I swipe to fix superuser it reboots that quickly it looks as if it doesn't have time to fix the problem before it reboots

    TWRP 2.6.3.0-7 builds available now...

    The OP has been updated with download links for TWRP 2.6.3.0-7 for all three models of the 101 series. This build brings in the latest TWRP code changes (as of a couple days ago) and adds support for the dock sdcard, as requested. I have also changed the mount point display names a bit again. It works, but not quite like I expected, so to explain.

    Now you will see mount points on the Mount page or if you click on the storage button on the Install page the list of storage mount options as follows:

    Internal Storage (which is sdcard or /storage/sdcard0, etc. in Android)
    MicroSD (which is /storage/sdcard1, etc. in Android)
    external1 (which is the dock USB port on the upper right corner of dock, except when it's not)
    external2 (which is the dock USB port on the lower left corner of the dock, except when it's not)
    external3 (which is the dock sdcard, except when it's not)

    To elaborate, if you have something plugged into all three ports / slots before booting into recovery, then all three will be available for mounting and will fall into the spots mentioned above. If you only have 1 of the three plugged in, then it uses the first spot (external1), regardless of which port / slot is physically used. If you have 2 USB drives plugged in, then they use the first 2 spots (external1, external2) with the USB port on the upper right corner of dock always coming before the other one.

    If you have a USB drive and an sdcard in the dock, then the USB uses spot 1 (external1) and the dock sdcard uses spot 2 (external2). USB devices will always be before the dock sdcard when both are used at the same time. If you only have something in the dock sdcard slot when booting into recovery then it will be in spot 1 (external1) and so forth.

    Internally, if all three ports / slots are used then they are (in recovery) the same as /dev/block/sda, /dev/block/sdb, and /dev/block/sdc, with these designations being used internally to mount these devices. In other words, sdc is not being used if there is nothing in sda or sdb. It always starts handing out sda first, within the guidelines presented above. Hopefully, this makes sense to everyone.

    Long story short, you can now access both dock USB ports and the dock sdcard slot from within recovery, even all three at the same time. Enjoy.
