Nexus 9 DSC07273

Rooters and developers who prefer to use TeamWin Recovery Project (affectionately known as TWRP), listen up — you can now get it on your Nexus 9. The alternative recovery will give you a full touch interface if you aren’t a fan of using volume rockers and power buttons to do your bidding. Its XML-based GUI makes this themeable, though we’re not sure many will care too much about the theme of a utility like this one where it’s all about getting straight down to business.

This release also brings TWRP up to version 2.8.2.0, and it brings with it the following changes:

-Pull in all changes from Android 5.0 lollipop into TWRP
-Add decrypt support for Android 5.0 lollipop encrypted partitions including automatic decrypt when the default_password is in use
-Revert some changes to exFAT that were breaking exFAT support on some devices
-Other minor fixes and updates

Remember that you will need an unlocked bootloader and root (check out our guide here) in order for TWRP to install, but as long as you take care of that it’s as simple as downloading TWRP Manager from Google Play and choosing to install the advanced recovery. Be sure to grab it as soon as you can!
