With the Big Android BBQ just days away, we thought it would be a good time to let you all in on what is now a not-so-well-known secret: TWRP Lead Developer, and XDA Elite Recognized Developer, Dees_Troy will be giving a presentation at the big event. His talk will be on “Software Architecture and Design.”
If you’ve ever used TWRP, you know how valuable this recovery has been to the Android development scene. And if you’re a developer who is always looking to improve your knowledge of, or instill best practices into your development process, then this talk is for you. Here’s the description of his talk, as provided by Dees_Troy:

Sometimes, it’s those little tweaks that fill us with the most joy inside—you know, little goodies like boot animations, themed icons, and the like. After all, our mobile devices are growing so incredibly powerful that not even manufacturer-supplied bloatware can hold them back from delivering acceptable levels of performance. Because of this, many have taken to creating and applying themes all throughout their OS in the form of themed apps, launchers, and icons.
Not too long ago when we were talking about TWRP2, we mentioned that it had recently acquired theme support. At the time, we laughed, wondering why anyone would actually want to actually theme their recovery. Again, though, it. . . READ ON »

Google released the new Nexus 7 (2013) and everyone has been waiting with baited breath for XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler to do one of his famous XDA Unboxings. In an XDA Unboxing, Adam tears apart an innocent device all the way to its bare components. He then identifies some of the components and tells us what they do.
In this episode, AdamOutler shows off the New Nexus 7 (2013), and he strips it down to its bare bones. He then shows you how to do a screen replacement. He finishes off the video by showing you how to install TWRP recovery. After further tweaking, Adam fixed the mushy button issue. Anyway, check out this video.. . . READ ON »

We’ve talked quite a bit about Team Win Recovery Project in the past. After all, having a nice touch-based recovery with a graphical and user-friendly interface makes the root and modification process easier and much less error prone. And ever since TWRP2 saw the light of day, it has offered some of the best functionality and undoubtedly the most user-friendly interface in the sea of custom recovery choices.
What do you do if you want to use TWRP but there isn’t an official build for your device? Well, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer (and Team Win lead developer) Dees_Troy, there is now an official porting guide.
The guide walks users through the make process as well as what all of the paramet. . . READ ON »

A custom recovery is an incredibly useful tool for anyone who wants to make the most of his or her (rooted) device. Even if you aren’t a fan of custom ROMs or kernels, you probably still use a custom recovery if for nothing but the ease of backing up and restoring your device. There are of course many other reasons why you might find yourself diving in and out of recovery, and that is a process which can become tedious.
That’s where TWRP Manager by XDA Recognized Developer and Forum Moderator jmz comes in. The application allows the user to initiate recovery functions without rebooting by using OpenRecoveryScript commands. TWRP is one of the most popular options available when it comes to custom re. . . READ ON »

Up until recently, it was possible to take a screenshot of your recovery of choice using DDMS. This option, however, no longer works with some newer HTC devices. Now why is this a problem? Who needs a screenshot of their recovery? Well for a start there are themers who work with the ever popular TWRP. Additionally, it may just end up being useful in a troubleshooting situation. Whatever the reason, it used to be possible but now it’s not. And for XDA Recognized Developer/Themer Whiskey103, that needed to be resolved.

We have had some rather long running projects on XDA over the years. Some involve simple, yet elegant things like theming engines (UCCW, VR Theme, etc), while others focus a bit more on the functionality side of things. The case for recovery images is one such area that needs to be constantly evolving due to the evolution of the devices and their inner workings. Pushing an insecure recovery into a device is not always easy. Or rather, it is not as simple as some people make it be. Lots of things and information are required even before beginning the process of loading it onto a new device. For XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and other members of Team Win, this has been the case for a while now, but they always ten. . . READ ON »

The Team Win Recovery Project has been on a roll lately, adding several new features including auto screen timeout and built-in SuperSU flashing in the 18.104.22.168 update just a few days ago. Things are getting even better, as XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy and team have just released the 22.214.171.124 update that brings even more improvements, bug fixes, as well as a couple of new features to TWRP.
File selectors and list boxes now have a scroll bar to help you navigate their contents. Also, the recovery now uses libblkid to detect file systems more accurately, getting rid of problems with exFAT partition detection. Aesthetically, there’s now a screen dim effect on some devices that appears two sec. . . READ ON »
