TWRP is now available for the Nokia 7.1 and Snapdragon Moto E4
Custom recoveries like TWRP give users the option to customize and make the best of their Android devices by installing custom ROMs and kernels. TWRP is one of the most commonly used recoveries for installing third-party software on Android, however, it isn’t available for all smartphones. This is mainly due to the sheer number of new devices launched each month. Thankfully, the good folks at TWRP keep adding new phones to their list of supported devices ever so often. Most recently, the team added support for the Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro, Nokia 7.2, Nokia 6.2, Redmi Note 8/8T, Mi 9, and Realme X2 Pro. Earlier this month, the budget-friendly Xiaomi Redmi 8 also received official support for the custom recovery. And now, the team is adding support for the Nokia 7.1 and the Snapdragon-powered Moto E4.
HMD Global launched the Nokia 7.1 all the way back in October 2018, running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The device was subsequently updated to Android 9 Pie and then Android 10, however, the stock Android-like OS meant that the devices lacked a couple of useful features. Now, thanks to the official TWRP support, Nokia 7.1 users will be able to install custom ROMs and kernels on their device and enjoy a plethora of new features that aren’t available on stock Android. If you’re interested in installing a custom ROM or kernel on your device, you can now download the official TWRP recovery from the link below.
Along with the Nokia 7.1, the team behind the TWRP recovery has also announced support for Motorola’s Snapdragon-powered Moto E4. The device was launched back in 2017 and it hasn’t aged well, mostly because the company didn’t release many OS updates for the device. That might change with the official TWRP support as users will now be able to install third-party ROMs for the device based on newer versions of Android. In case you have a Snapdragon-powered Moto E4 lying around and you wish to breathe new life into it with an OS update, you can download the official TWRP custom recovery from the link below.
Once you’ve downloaded and flashed the TWRP recovery on your device, you can visit our device forums linked above to find custom ROMs and kernels for your device.
