TWRP now available for the Realme 2 Pro, Sony Xperia XA2 Plus, and LG G5 SE

TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) is one of most popular, open source custom recovery options available for a wide range of Android devices, having grown to fill the void left behind the demise of other early solutions like CWM. Custom recoveries come into play once the bootloader of a device is unlocked, as they then allow users to install the wide variety of custom modifications available for their phone, including root and custom ROMs.

TWRP has now added three new devices to its list of officially supported devices, as it is now available for the Realme 2 Pro, Sony Xperia XA2 Plus and LG G5 SE.

Realme 2 Pro

The Realme 2 Pro was launched in India with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC for a price of just ₹13,990 ($196). The processor choice at that price made it an extremely competitive purchase option against the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and other devices in that bracket. Realme 2 Pro users recently also received the ability to unlock the bootloader of their device, which opened the doors for the possibility of wider custom software modifications. With the availability of official TWRP support for the device, we expect the device to have a flourishing development community for the foreseeable future.

The Sony Xperia XA2 Plus was launched in July 2018, with a greater focus on multimedia performance thanks to the inclusion of LDAC and Sony DSEE HX support. Official TWRP support was recently made available for the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra, and now, the Xperia XA2 Plus is also getting the same love.
