TWRP 2.1 Released for the AT&T and Rogers One X

Not too long ago, we reported on the AT&T and Rogers One X receiving a one-click root and bootloader unlock courtesy of XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer kennethpenn. What do users inevitably want next? A nice, touch-based recovery, of course!

The vast majority of our readers have either heard of or are currently using Team Win Recovery Project. For those who aren’t familiar, please refer to our previous article covering the release of the touch-based version 2.1. In short, TWRP 2.1 delivers a completely touch-based and extremely user-friendly recovery experience that is as feature packed as it is fun to use.

Now thanks to the coding efforts of TeamWin and device-specific work by XDA Elite Recognized Developer toastcfh, XDA Senior Member eyeballer has released TWRP 2.1 for the AT&T and Rogers One X.

Introduction:
Team Win Recovery Project 2.1, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Key Features:

  • Touchscreen driven with real buttons and drag-to-scroll
  • XML-based GUI that allows full customization of the layout – true theming!
  • Settings are saved to the sdcard and persist through reboots
  • Ability to choose which partitions to back up and which to restore
  • Ability to choose to compress backups – now with pigz (multi-core processor support for faster compression times)

Those upgrading from the unofficial ClockworkMod recovery port should note that CWM Nandroid backups are incompatible with TWRP. So if this applies to you, be sure to create a fresh backup after installing TWRP on your device.

Head over to the recovery thread to get started with TWRP 2.1 for the AT&T / Rogers One X. Those who instead prefer a one-click method can visit kennethpenn’s thread, which features an unofficial CWM build rather than TWRP. However, if you don’t mind a few more steps, we highly recommend trying out TWRP!

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
