[Update: Xiaomi Mi Max 2 added] Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, Motorola Moto E4 Plus, and Telekom Puls now support official TWRP

Update 4/23/18: The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 now also has official TWRP support. The download link has been added below.

Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is the most popular custom recovery for Android devices. Having TWRP support (or another comparable custom recovery) is a necessity for the health of a custom ROM scene. Without a custom recovery, it would be risky for users to flash any custom ROMs, acquire root access by modifying the boot image, and difficult to install modifications because of the ease of custom scripts. Many devices receive an unofficial build of TWRP shortly after a device is released and kernel source code is made available. Having an unofficial build become official signals that the maintainer is committed to keeping the recovery up to date with the latest changes in TWRP and that the build will be made available on the official website. The latest devices added to the official roster include the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, the MediaTek variant of the Motorola Moto E4 Plus, and the Alcatel Telekom Puls.


You can visit the official XDA forums for some of the mentioned devices below.
