Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company. They will release the Pebble Time Steel variant alongside the regular Pebble, instead of say a whole release cycle down the road. The accompanying announcement along with the Steel,...
Slap the Latest TWRP onto Your Device with Recovery Installer App
Team Win Recovery Project, better known as a TWRP, is the custom recovery of choice for quite a few Android users here on XDA. Created by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and his partner in crime, XDA Recognized Developer bigbiff, TWRP has earned its fair share of fans thanks to many interesting features like scripting used by OpenDelta, as well as themes and other innovative features that make the recovery worthwhile to try.
Installing the TWRP is really easy and can be done through apps like Goo.im Manager. However, there are other ways of getting TWRP installed on your device. XDA Senior Member S.a.M.e.R_d made a handy root-only application to install TWRP for you without hassle.
The application automatically recognizes the make and model of your device, and downloads the newest compatible version of TWRP. Once downloaded, it can also flash the recovery. Before using it, you must keep in mind that this application is still described as being in alpha state, and some bugs might be present. To properly run TWRP Recovery Installer, your device must be rooted and your phone or tablet must be supported by TeamWin.
The application and all the necessary information can be found in the original thread.
IMPORTANT: Before heading over to the link above, please keep in mind that damaging your recovery partition can seriously damage your phone, so double check everything before using this app.

This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
