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!

Very nice job guys! I just might have to update my signature now. ;)

Is there any future in external sdcard support?

I have. I can do it in different ways. flash_image recovery recoveryname.img command from the phone itself if you have the flash_image binary installed or by fastboot flash recovery recoveryname.img with the phone in bootloader mode.

Not complicated at all.

Works great, so much better than using the volume up/down keys and power keys. Two weird things that I want to see if anyone else is having issues with (want to know if it is worth reporting on the github)

1. After accessing recovery I get the "Tell HTC" This phone has just recovered from a abnormal reset message. Didn't get that with clockwork, not sure if it is a bug or not.

2. Cant mount ext SD card. Saw that the EVO 3D had the same issue but they had fixed it. I assume this is a problem with the Amaze since it is the same with clockwork mod?

Use this one if you want to backup and restore to and from external sdcard.

pardon the question, I've looked all over TeamWin's web site... Is there a way to boot the Amaze into twerp directly?

I don't understand your question.

You want to reboot into recovery?

adb reboot recovery
or use the 22 different other ways to reboot into recovery.

I'm talking about rebooting into recovery when I'm not anywhere near a computer. Such as on my HD2, I would hold the power button down until in MAGLDR, then choose to boot into Recovery. Is there something similar on the Amaze?

Which rom are you using?
There are a couple of roms that have the Advanced Power Menu that has a reboot option. When selected it gives you other options such as recovery and bootloader.
There are also a few apps (do a search for Reboot Recovery) on the Market.
I have always used the option from ROM Manager.
You can also use terminal emulator and use the command "reboot recovery" and that should do it too.
You can also power off the device, hold volume down while pressing power to get to hboot mode then select recovery.

Stock ROM right now, I'm getting things set to start flashing new ROM's. Aha! I did see the "recovery" in hboot. Now once I figure out how I lost the ability to get into hboot by holding the volume down button I'll be good to go!

I LOVE answering my own darned post.... Didn't realize you had to battery power cycle the device to get it back into hboot. I'm good to go now!

Move the zip file to the other sdcard. Remember that you have two. ;)

Here's a free tip!

Make two empty zip files.
Name one internal.zip
Name the other external.zip

Place the internal.zip in the internal sdcard and the external.zip in the external sdcard.

Reboot into recovery and if you see internal.zip file. Guess what sdcard you're looking at? :D Same goes for external.

I came from the vibrant as well however I wasn't so active there.
I don't understand why you don't see any zip files then. Strange.

Me either... think i'll just try and reload it and see what happens. Thought maybe i was clicking the wrong thing or not clicking something.

---------- Post added at 07:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:43 PM ----------

and its not just that i dont see any zip files. i dont see ANY files at all! every directory i click is empty! even on the system partition! not a single file shows up. only directories and when i click them there is nothing except /.. and /.
