[RECOVERY] TWRP 2.2.0 with on-screen keyboard! [2012-07-12]

Team Win Recovery Project 2.2, or TWRP2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. 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.

Tablet look:


CHANGELOG (for 2.2.0):
- On-screen keyboard in recovery! -- supports long press, backspace repeat, and swipe left deletes everything left of the cursor
- Name new backups and rename existing backups
- Rename files and folders in the file manager
- Pseudo-terminal emulator
- Support decrypting an encrypted data partition on Galaxy Nexus (enter password using keyboard)
- Backup archive splitting -- allows backup and restore of data partitions larger than 2GB
- Simplified XML layout support between resolutions
- Added dual storage selection radio buttons to zip install, backup, and restore pages
- Improved zip install compatibility
- Updated update-binary source code
- Numerous small bug fixes and improvements

DOWNLOAD:
The fastest and easiest way to install TWRP is to use the GooManager app:

FAQ:

How to install with Fastboot:
  1. Download the fastboot binary for your computer and OS
  2. Connect your phone and boot it into fastboot
  3. Run fastboot with the command
    Code:

Very nice to see this come out, looking forward to trying it out. Not to sound ungrateful but I have been hoping for a recovery that lets you name the backups rather than have them time stamped. Call me lazy but I flash back and forth between roms enough that keeping then straight just by the date and time is tough for an old fart like me...and yes I know rom manager can rename them for me but like I said I'm lazy...

Great work guys, thanx for your contributions to android life ;)

Awesome guys, very smooth and much better looking than CWM recovery, a keeper indeed.

Edit: For those curious, it also works fine with the Reboot to Recovery feature build into many custom roms, such as CM7, Oxygen etc.

Just tried it out and compared it to Clockwork Recovery. Seems a lot cleaner, definitely love how you can assign a folder for flashable .zips.

I think I'll keep this over my Clockwork Recovery 4.0.0.2 :) looking forward to future updates.

OK I took the plunge using the other teamwin contribution of the day(you guys rock!), the app for flashing img files like kernels and recoveries and it works fine so far on my ns4g. I especially like how I can mount usb in recovery and get at my files, never had any luck with any previous recoveries allowing it, even ones that had the option. Haven't tried all the options just yet but I am sure to find something to flash around here requiring a backup or two....let me dig around...:rolleyes:

That would mean we'd have to create a software keyboard type interface which might bloat the recovery. As you said you could always use rom manager, or even mount the sdcard as a usb drive and change the folder name manually. :cool:

Thats why I'm just a dreamer and not a doer lol...you guys know the limits and I guess I just don't see them...awesome work either way guys ;)


One thing I could use some help with though, I tried to flash deck's latest and it gave me a status 7 error, just wondering if its because this isn't official for the ns4g or not...and I can report that it did a successful backup and restore for me :D
