Jazz Up Your Recovery with TWRP Theme Manager
Team Win Recovery Project, or TWRP for short, is one of the most popular custom recovery options available. It offers support for a wide variety of devices both new and old. It has all the features that you would expect to find in a recovery, as well as a whole lot more. One such not necessarily essential, but nonetheless welcome feature is support for custom themes. While a recovery might not be the first thing on everyone’s list of things to theme, I suspect that a few of you out there spend just as much time looking at recovery as you do actually using your device.
For those of you who do theme your TWRP, XDA Senior Member ScumpinatoS created an application that might be of interest. It’s called simply, TWRP Theme Manager, and in case you haven’t already guessed, it will allow you to download, install, and manage themes for your recovery. You can browse available themes and download them via the app or import your existing themes from SD card to make dressing up TWRP just that little bit easier.
The application does not require root and is compatible with devices running Android 4.0 or above. Please note that the version 2.7 of TWRP is the only version compatible with TWRP Theme Manager. Check out the application thread for more information.
