Without any doubt, we can say that the LG G3 is a great device. LG did its very best to provide high level technical specification and make its flagship a “must have.” While end users are likely enjoying stock ROM experience, folks here at XDA are yet to see some custom ROMs prepared by the community. This is all due to a locked bootloader that has been served by the LG.
The LG G3 was rooted back in August, when XDA Senior Recognized Developer jcase and his team discovered a vulnerability and created an exploit allowing users to push the superuser application. Now after a few months, XDA members with any variants of the device can finally around this limitation and flash modified “Bumped!” i. . . READ ON »

In the last few days, we’ve talked about some fairly high end devices receiving official ports of popular ROMs or updates via OTA. Users of mid-range devices usually must be more patient when it comes to waiting for their devices getting developer support. Patience, however, is certainly a virtue.
The HTC Desire 816 was announced at MWC in Barcelona in February of this year and eventually released in April. This 5.5” phablet brought a number of high-end specs into mid-range world. Now, Desire 816 owners have a proper reason for celebration, as XDA Recognized Developer Grarak and XDA Senior Member v_superuser laid the cornerstone for the future development for this device by releasing . . .

Team Win Recovery Project, known more simply as TWRP, is one of the most popular custom recoveries available for Android. It has a nice layout, a ton of features in its easy to use UI, and it gives us the ability to dive into custom ROM world. This recovery is available for most popular devices–no matter if they are big or small. XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and XDA Recognized Developer bigbiff who developed most of the features, have updated the recovery and bumped its version to 2.8. It’s a major release so the list of changes is huge.
What’s new in the latest TWRP? The UI layout hasn’t changed, but the recovery gained quite a lot of new features that many of . . . READ ON »

Over the past week or so, we’ve talked quite a bit about the first two Android Wear-powered smartwatches, the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. Last night, we saw a great toolkit for G Watch owners. And just one day before, temp root was achieved on the Gear Live and its restore images were pulled.
Now, the development community has reached the next major milestone thanks to custom recoveries for both devices. The custom recoveries for both devices come in the form of the highly versatile and feature packed TWRP recovery. These images are thanks to TWRP project leader, XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy. And as can be expected from official TWRP releases, the recovery i. . . READ ON »

If you spend any amount of time on XDA, you probably also spend a lot of time in your recovery. Perhaps you hate blue, or perhaps you just want to change things up a little. And since we like changing things, wouldn’t it be great if you could apply themes to your TWRP Recovery more easily?
XDA Senior Member ScumpinatoS offers up an application that allows you apply themes to your TWRP Recovery very easily. In this video, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews TWRP Theme Manager. TK shows off the application, its uses, and functionality, and then he gives his thoughts on the application. Check out this app review.. . . READ ON »

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.

It’s been a short while since Motorola, now owned by Lenovo, announced the Moto E. In many ways, the E is quite similar to the extremely popular Moto G thanks to its affordable price point and great user experience. This cheap, but capable good device may well become a big success.
The Moto E was launched with a near stock Android firmware and an unlockable bootloader. And soon, the custom ROM madness will arrive, since a system dump was just released by XDA Senior Member Saumitra Yadav. But the above isn’t the end of today’s good news for Moto E users. XDA Recognized Developer cybojenix managed to port TWRP to the “Condor,” which is the Moto E’s code . . . READ ON »

You may recall that back when TWRP2 introduced a couple of years ago, it brought with it the open source Open Recovery System (ORS). With ORS, purpose-built applications are able to queue various recovery tasks from directly within Android itself.
ORS eventually lead to the creation of various interesting applications such as the previously covered TWRP Manager. But what if you wanted an application to control virtually all aspects of TWRP from within Android? Now with TWRP Coordinator XDA by Senior Member Samer Diab and Recognized Developer Helicopter88, you can do precisely that.
As its name suggests, TWRP Coordinator allows you to initiate basically any TWRP-related task you could po. . . READ ON »

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 . . . READ ON »
