twrp tablet

Everyone’s favorite touch-activated custom recovery has received another big update, and it brings with it a lot of key changes, bug fixes and improvements that you should be dying to get your hands on. The new version — numbered — brings the following healthy list of changes:

  • MTP will now tell the host PC that storage is removed instead of disabling MTP completely
  • MTP will now report the correct max file size based on the file system in use to the host PC (may fix transfer of large files)
  • Update and improve fix permissions and make fixing contexts optional
  • Update SuperSU in TWRP to 2.40 and update install process
  • Make TWRP work properly on AArch64 (Nexus 9 is now built in true 64-bit binaries and libraries)
  • Attempt to set correct permissions and contexts on all files placed in storage so backups will show in Android
  • Fix kernel panic during MTP start on some devices
  • Support unicode fonts on devices with True Type Font support
  • Fix slider value not showing sometimes (vibration settings page)
  • Toggle MTP off during adb sideload to set correct USB IDs
  • Reduce library requirements for 5.0 L decrypt

It might not all be useful to anyone and everyone, but anything that shores up an already solid experience can only be applauded. You can get TWRP for your device by heading to the project’s landing page right here and searching for your model name. Be sure to back your phone up before flashing the new recovery, and don’t forget that no one is liable for anything that happens as a result.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Been a fan of ClockworkMod for years, never really liked TWRP. But after finding TWRP behaves better on my Oppo Find 7a, I actually like it better. Great to see more features coming my way.

  2. THX for the heads-up Quentyn.
    Just updated TWRP using FLASHIFY,doesn’t get any easier than that.
