Team Win Recovery Project 2.x, 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.

CHANGELOG for 2.6.3.0:
-Proper backup and restore of SELinux contexts (thanks to Tassadar)
-Pull in some ROM information for backup name generation
-Merge all recent patches from AOSP bringing TWRP up to date with Android 4.3
-Add 1200x1920 theme (thanks to Tassadar)
-A few other fixes and tweaks

CHANGELOG for 2.6.1.0:
-Initial SELinux support (only a few devices, need testers so come by IRC if your device doesn't have it and needs it)
-Initial support for f2fs file system formatting (Moto X)
-Update SuperSU install for 4.3 ROMs
-Fixed a permissions bug on files created during backup
-Fixed a bug that caused TWRP to not wait for compressed backups to finish causing 0 byte files and md5sums to not match
-Fixed decryption of encrypted data so that both TouchWiz and AOSP decryption are possible
-Ignore lost+found folder during backup and size calculations
-Various other minor bug fixes and tweaks

CHANGELOG for 2.6.0.0:
Special Note: If you are running a custom theme, you will likely need to remove that theme before updating to 2.6.0.0 as your custom theme will likely not have some of the new changes visible (e.g. you won't be able to encrypt a backup)!
-Can encrypt a backup to prevent theft of private data from your backup files
-Updated graphics / icon courtesy of shift
-Updated exFAT to latest commits
-Fixed a problem with Samsung TouchWiz decryption
-Update SuperSU binary
-Fixed saving of backup partitions list
-Fixed saving of last used zip install folder
-Fixed backup of datadata on devices that use a separate partition for datadata
-Fixed some issues with the advanced wipe list (android_secure, can now wipe internal storage on data/media deivces and wipe data on the advanced list no longer formats the entire data partition)
-Fixed some problems with partitioning a SD card
-Various other bug fixes and tweaks

Notes about encrypted backups:
Why encrypt your backups? -- Most people store their backups on the device. Any app that has permission to access storage could potentially read your backup files and try to harvest your data. Encrypted backups also provide an added layer of security if you move your backups to other storage devices or to the cloud. The encryption that we're using is probably not strong enough for enterprise level security, but should be strong enough to make it significantly difficult to get to your data.

Encryption is using OpenAES which uses AES 128-bit cbc encryption. If you happen to use a longer password (over 16 characters) then the encryption strength improves to 192 or 256 bits. Do not forget your password. If you forget your password you will be unable to restore your backup. We don't encrypt the entire backup. Encryption is very CPU intensive and can be fairly slow even when we spread the workload over multiple cores even on the latest high-end devices. To ensure that encrypted backups don't take forever, we don't encrypt any other partitions besides /data and in /data we don't encrypt /data/app (or other app related directories where apks are stored) and we don't encrypt dalvik cache.

DOWNLOAD:
The fastest and easiest way to install TWRP is to use the GooManager app:
Play Store Link
Direct Download
1) Install GooManager from the Play Store
2) Open GooManager and provide root permissions
3) Hit Menu (or the button with the 3 dots on your screen) and then Install OpenRecovery
OR:
You can find more information and download links on our website!

BUGS:
If you have found a bug, please consider posting it to our github issues log. It's pretty much impossible for us to keep up with the more than 40 threads that we have for the devices that we "directly" support. If you have a significant problem that cannot be answered in this thread, your best bet is to PM me directly, contact us via our website, or find us in our IRC channel below. If you see someone that's struggling, feel free to point it out to us. We need your help to help us keep track of all of our devices! Thanks!

A great clockwork alternative!

Flashed it and it looks great! Haven't tested it out fully but i wish I could use the internal partition because my sdcard is pretty full and the battery percentage would show. Unless i find a reason to switch back to cwm, Ill keep this.

Any plans on adding support for CM7 based roms? Only /sdcard is being recognized, /emmc isn't available at all.

*Edit* Also wanted to include webtop (/osh) in the above question.

I also flashed it, but didn't spend much time in it (got work to do :D ).

Can the backup restore location be changed to point to backups that were made with other recoveries?

I don't think other recovery backups will be compatible. The test backup I did yesterday looks like this:
boot.emmc.win
data.ext4.win
system.ext4.win

And none of my CWM backups were showing up when navigating through my sdcard contents.

ive actually been running this for a few days now and found it really awesome!

backup and restores are lightning fast and everyhting ive tried works perfectly

i found that in cm7 based ROMs only the external gets mounted. which is fine because thats what I use

Great work Team Win

Great work, but i'm getting a few issues:

Everytime i try to install something,at the end of process it gives me:
E: cannot load volume /misc. :confused:

Also when i mount usb and unmount, later on i try to install something and recovery restarts itself showing homescreen, fixed by going back to usb mount screen and unchecking "unmount cache":confused: although it's weird to see this checked, when actually i didn't check anything( i see only "unmount sd-card" checked when i leave the panel).

Hope this can be addressed soon,cause it's a very nice recovery UI :)

its possible to use this on locked atrix ?

and..we have any recovery to use with an locked atrix ? i need to wipe my battery and dont know how without a custom recovery....

many tks

Just unlock it. Its definatley worth it. Then you can get cwm or this and wipe whatever and flash whatever.

And I have to say the recovery is very nice. Kinda weird not using volume buttons but very nice. I am also getting the can't load volume thing error.

Can you guys take Rom Racer's recovery and just add the tweaks from this CWM to it? Pretty much make a touch version of Rom Racer's...

I'm guessing you're on a CM7 based ROM? Currently it only supports motoblur naming (sdcard, sd-ext). They plan on adding support for /emmc at some point. Keep a backup .zip of CWM on your sdcard just in case. ;)

I am on blured rom,and even restore did not worked for me-tried many times (to restore full,just data,just system...but no succes) :( i am back on old recovery until this one gets fixed. This recovery is so simple to use and realy nice,just waiting for full working version now.
