Official TWRP Released for the Oppo Find 7a and GSM, Sprint, and Verizon HTC One M8

There are more than a few excellent options in the custom recovery world nowadays. Although the most common aftermarket solution is still ClockworkMod Recovery and its ports after all these years, many are growing increasingly partial to TWRP’s blend of innovative features, fantastic UI, and overall user friendliness. Thus, it’s naturally quite a big deal when an official TWRP port hits a device.

You may recall that a few weeks ago, we added forums for the Oppo Find 7. Now, XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy has gone ahead and given it some official TWRP love. But before you go ahead and install it on your device, there’s one small caveat. Currently, TWRP for the Find 7 only supports the 7a model, which is the version with the 1o80p screen. As such, it’s currently untested on the higher end, Quad HD variant, and will likely not display properly due to the display differences—assuming it works at all.

The Find 7 isn’t the only device receiving the official TWRP love. Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and Recognized Developers jmz and simonsickle also managed to bring this touch-friendly recovery to the GSM, Sprint, and Verizon variants of the HTC One M8 (2014).

Both builds offer the full TWRP 2.7.0.0 featureset. And with the exception of the minor caveat regarding the Find 7 build (confirmed working on only the 1080p variant), everything should work as planned. So if you’ve got yourself a Find 7a (1080p) or a GSM, Sprint, or Verizon variant of the HTC One M8 (2014), head over to the threads below to get your TWRP on.
