TeamWin Recovery Project Makes its Way to the Sprint Galaxy Note II

You’ve probably heard of TeamWin Recovery Project (TWRP) by now. We’ve mentioned it here on the XDA Portal a few times in the past, and it’s quickly becoming one of the most popular recovery options available for a rather large selection of devices, both old and new. And when you look at what it’s capable of, it’s easy to understand why. One of the latest devices to receive a port of this feature packed recovery is the Sprint Galaxy Note II thanks to XDA Recognised Developer bigbiff who released version 2.3 of TWRP. Some features of TWRP include:

  • Based on AOSP sources.
  • Completely touch based.
  • Completely themeable.
  • Ability to compress backups.
  • Ability to select which partitions to backup and restore.
  • Fixing permissions takes seconds, not minutes.
  • Many, many more.

On top of all this, the recovery itself is fully open source, giving people the opportunity to create builds for unsupported devices as they see fit. TeamWin states that they are looking for talented developers and themers to help with this project. Links to the source are available in thread, along with instructions on how to go about theming TWRP.

If you’re interested in finding out more about TWRP, check out the original thread for more info.
