Control TWRP from within Android with TWRP Coordinator

You may recall that back when TWRP2  introduced a couple of years ago, it brought with it the open source Open Recovery System (ORS). With ORS, purpose-built applications are able to queue various recovery tasks from directly within Android itself.

ORS eventually lead to the creation of various interesting applications such as the previously covered TWRP Manager. But what if you wanted an application to control virtually all aspects of TWRP from within Android? Now with TWRP Coordinator XDA by Senior Member Samer Diab and Recognized Developer Helicopter88, you can do precisely that.

As its name suggests, TWRP Coordinator allows you to initiate basically any TWRP-related task you could possibly want. This includes installing and updating TWRP, rebooting to recovery, flashing ZIPs, creating / renaming / deleting / restoring backups, wiping data, performing a factory reset, wiping specific partitions, fixing permissions, and much more.

With such a powerful application, you’d be right to want to prevent unauthorized use. Luckily, TWRP Coordinator offers both password protection and the ability to hide it from your launcher app. If you either lose your password or wish to launch the app after it’s been hidden, simply dial *#8977# into your phone dialer.

Naturally, you need to both be rooted and have TWRP (both official or unofficial) recovery installed on your device. As mentioned earlier, the application can install TWRP for you, but this naturally only applies to devices with official TWRP support.

You can get started by visiting the application thread.
