Well, it’s been quite some time since we’ve heard anything from the camp of twrp (Team Win Recovery Project) 2.0. But finally, the ClockworkMod alternative has finally kicked off for all to download and try out. For those eagerly anticipating the seamless ability to flash ROMs, back up your devices and wipe your Dalvik cache without being dependent on your volume rocker for navigating the menus, your time has come. TWRP (pronounced “twerp”) 2.0 is finger-friendly and compatible with both smartphones and tablets. However, at the moment there are only a handful of devices supported, such as the Nexus S, the Kindle Fire and the HP TouchPad to name a few. But we’re sure support for more devices is right around the corner. If you want to give it a try you can hit up the source link below and download it for yourself. In addition, don’t forget to check out the video below as well of the recovery app in action.
It took a little longer than we would have hoped, or initially anticipated, but Team Win Recovery Project 2.0 is finally here and ready for mass consumption. Ever since we got our first glimpse of the touch-based recovery tool back in September, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the ability to flash ROMs, back up our Android phones and wipe our Dalvik cache without the need to rely on our volume rockers for navigating menus. The finger-friendly ClockworkMod alternative is compatible with both tablets and phones, but the list of officially supported devices is reasonably small at the moment. It does, however, include the Nexus S, the Kindle Fire and the TouchPad. If you need a refresher of what TWRP (that’s pronounced “twerp”) 2.0 looks like, check out the video after the break and hit up the source to download it now.

It’s pronounced “twerp,” but don’t mistake TeamWin’s Recovery Project for a run-of-the-mill chump. The software is intended as a touchscreen replacement for ROM managers such as TWRP 1.0 and ClockworkMod Recovery. In addition to the all-important backup, restore and install functions, the utility now provides a full GUI for touch input that’s fully customizable with XML themes. As a particular boon, developers will have the option to design custom installation processes unique to their particular ROMs, which is a lovely (though very metaphorical) cherry on top. As you’d expect, the software supports both phones and tabs, and if you’re interested to see more, just check the full demo video after the break. According to the developer, the utility still needs some work before it’s ready for prime time, but it’s rather nice to see the group stay productive as it matures.
