But as recoveries are becoming user friendly, the overall look of the UI should be brought up to par as well. And if you’ve been earning your Frequent Flasher miles, you might as well make the experience even more pleasurable when trying out those latest kernel updates and nightly ROM builds.

Not too long ago, we talked about a rather unique set of TWRP recovery themes for 720p devices created by XDA Senior Member Primokorn. At the time, one in particular caught our eye. That was, of course, the unofficial XDA theme.

Unfortunately, these recovery themes were only compatib. . . READ ON »

TWRP Recovery Themes for 720p Devices

688780971

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 »

We’ve talked quite a bit about Team Win Recovery Project in the past.

TWRP Manager Makes Recovery (Even) Easier

2013.06.20-08.04.29

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 »
