TWRP Touch Recovery Available for the Nexus 10

We’ve made a fair amount of noise about TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) here on the Portal, and with good reason. It’s been ported to a wide array of devices, from the Sprint Galaxy Note 2 to the ever present mobile geriatric that is the HTC Hero. Now it’s available to owners of the brand spanking new Nexus 10. I personally can’t think of a better way to celebrate the arrival of your new device by slapping a custom recovery on there.

This particular port of the increasingly popular recovery option is brought to us courtesy of XDA Recognised Developer Dees_Troy, lead developer of TWRP, and includes all the features you would expect to find. And because it’s based on the latest version (2.3.2.2), it fixes an issue with ADB in recovery and enables USB OTG capabilities. There is however a slight issue with the theme. Due to the high resolution of the Nexus 10, the recovery requires some upscaling and won’t quite fill the entire screen. This is purely aesthetic though, and does not affect functionality in any way.

Installation can be accomplished via either the good old fashioned way of fastboot flash recovery or by simply installing the Goo Manager app and selecting the install recovery option if you’re already rooted. Take a look at the development thread for all the details.
