Functional TWRP Port Appears for the Verizon HTC One M8

Ever since its launch just a few short weeks ago, we’ve seen a flurry of development activity for the . This began with the WeakSauce root method, and has since continued with Firewater S-Off and a full GPe RUU. In other words, things are looking great on the dev front for this brand new device, but that doesn’t mean that everything’s peachy.

On certain variants of the M8, there have been a few stumbling points here and there. For the , this has been the lack of a functional custom recovery. But now thanks to the work of XDA Recognized Developer simonsickle, there is now a working, unofficial TWRP port for the device.

Pretty much everything works with this port except for ExFAT write. However, read access works, as do pretty much all of the other features you’d expect from a user-friendly custom recovery. And to make things even better, simonsickle has made the device tree he used to compile the recovery available on his GitHub.

So if you own a Verizon HTC One M8 and you want to get in on the custom recovery fun, head over to the development thread and give this a whirl.

Update: Apparently even though simonsickle hasn’t tested ExFAT writes, users are reporting that they do indeed work. Now you have even more reason to go give this a shot!

Dual Boot on Android: A Power User’s Holy Grail?

Many of you probably dual-boot your personal computers, be it to run Linux alongside Windows or because you have a Mac and hate OS X.
