TWRP 2.4 Adds Impressive New Feature Set

Regardless of what the US Government and the PAC behemoth CTIA would have you believe, choice is a good thing in the wireless industry. And when it comes to having choices for different types of software you want to run on your devices, it is a great thing. TWRP (TeamWin Recovery Project) is one of those options for recovery on many different types of devices, with over 80 being officially supported at this time.

TeamWin has been very supportive of the community, from providing instructions on how to build TWRP for devices they don’t officially support, to actively participating in online and forum discussions assisting users with the usage and porting of TWRP. Their source code is completely open source and doesn’t require that you purchase an app in order to utilize the OpenRecovery scripting functionality, unlike other options available.

As of late, they have been hard at work adding various features that add value and continue to set TWRP apart from the other recoveries. Version 2.4.0.0 brings with it new features like using libtar instead of busybox’s tar implementation for better backup options, exFAT sdcard support, decryption of Samsung TouchWiz encrypted devices, updated ADB sideload functionality, and much more. You can view their site for a full list of supported devices or visit some of the device-specific threads below:

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
