Compile TWRP for Your Device
We’ve talked quite a bit about Team Win Recovery Project in the past. After all, having a nice touch-based recovery with a graphical and user-friendly interface makes the root and modification process easier and much less error prone. And ever since TWRP2 saw the light of day, it has offered some of the best functionality and undoubtedly the most user-friendly interface in the sea of custom recovery choices.
What do you do if you want to use TWRP but there isn’t an official build for your device? Well, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer (and Team Win lead developer) Dees_Troy, there is now an official porting guide.
The guide walks users through the make process as well as what all of the parameters in the BoardConfig.mk file mean and how to adjust them. After the image is created, it shows you how to make sure that it works by booting it in an emulator, thus protecting your device from potential damage.
I’m not going to lie to you; while it isn’t overly complicated, the process to build TWRP for your own device isn’t simple. In other words, you’ll definitely want to grab a cup of coffee or two before sitting down and getting started. However, those who put in the effort will be rewarded by having a working build of TWRP.
To get started with the recovery building fun, head over to the guide thread. Just make sure to grab a few cups of Joe before getting started.

Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
