HTC Hero Receives TWRP Port

The HTC Hero seems to be one of those HTC device that never completely loses it’s following. A few weeks ago, we reported on the HTC Hero receiving both Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich ports.  To further back this up, we can report that the Hero has also received a TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) port. In fact two developers have thrown their hat into the ring.

XDA Recognized Contributor jordfaz has ported TWRP 2.2.2.0 to the Hero. The popular “touch” recovery has been on fire of late, being ported to a large number of devices. The only stand out issue with this particular port is that the “reboot to recovery” option from the ROM doesn’t work. Everything else is working as it should. XDA Senior Member kemoba has ported a more recent version of TWRP, 2.2.2.1 to the Hero. At the time of writing, only a couple of very minor issues exists:

  • When installing ROM or making backup if text goes over screen recovery doesn’t go into new line
  • Formatting takes ages, if you don’t want to wait go to settings and check use rm -rf instead of format, it should give you the same effect

In the good old XDA way, both jordfaz and kemoba are working together on fixing a number of minor issues for future releases.

If you want to get the ever popular TWRP on your Hero, check out jordfaz’s thread or kemoba’s thread.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
