TWRP – Complete Guidelines for Android Custom Recovery | Techtunes

Hello Techtunes folks, how are you all? Hope everybody is well. From now on we come to you regularly with new tunes. And is there any other way to stay good with the new topics and services of Techtunes? And in order to keep up with this ever new topic and trend of service, today I came up with a brand new topic with you. And through this tune you will be able to know all the new information.

From the day Android was born, something called Android Modding was invented. You have rooted your phone or installed a complete custom ROM of Android to unlock the hidden features of your phone, and you can do many new things by modifying your Android phone which you cannot do while unrooted.

And most of the time, if you want to modify the Android operating system, a key part of the software is this custom recovery. And in the world of recovery, TWRP custom recovery is the standard.

In today’s tune we ask you what is TWRP? And I will briefly discuss what you can do with it.

What is TWRP Recovery?

TWRP Recovery – whose full name is Team Win Recovery Project – is an open source custom recovery image created for Android devices.

This means that this recovery image file replaces the built-in recovery menu of your Android smartphone, and it allows you to unlock a number of features that did not support the built-in stock recovery image. And so to put it simply, Custom Recovery is a stock recovery menu on your device that you can use to do a lot more with this custom recovery.

As you can see, most built-in stock recoveries do not support touch-screen, while TWRP Custom Recovery supports touch-screen. And with this custom recovery you can install third party mode and software of your choice.

One of the things you can install using TWRP is custom kernels, add-ons and themes, and you can install a custom Android ROM by replacing your device’s stock operating system.

This allows you to create a full backup of your device’s partition, including your system partition, and restore it at any time. In other words, TWRP Custom Recovery will act as a gateway to your Android modding.

Moreover TWRP is absolutely free and this custom recovery is available for almost all Android devices. However, if you do not find it in the Google Play Store, you must download it directly from the developer’s website. And to download custom ROM, you must select the manufacturer and model of your device and confirm the correct version.

Can TWRP be installed without root?

Of course yes you need to install TWRP before you can root your phone. This is because after unlocking your phone’s bootloader, the next step is to install TWRP and use it to start rooting and modifying your device.

We must remember that you can never install TWRP without first unlocking the bootloader.

This means that a locked bootloader created by the device manufacturer does not allow you to sideload firmware and image files. And so it is impossible to replace the stock recovery image of your device with a third party recovery image, so it is not possible to install a custom ROM or root the smartphone.

The main reason why companies like Huawei, Oppo, or HMD / Nokia do not have custom development of smartphones is: you cannot unlock bootloader on that phone because they do not provide method to unlock bootloader.

Even if a custom recovery, kernel or ROM is created for these phones, there is no benefit because you can never install them without an unlocked bootloader.

Does every TWRP feature work?

In TWRP you will find many features which you will not find in stock recovery. Not only can you root your phone, install custom kernel and install ROM using this recovery, but you can do whatever you want using TWRP Recovery on your device without any limitations and there are lots of options. The following is a brief discussion of some of the major TWRP options:

The first and foremost reason to use TWRP is to install custom ROMs, software, kernels etc.

And you can flash the package on your Android smartphone using TWRP’s install function. You may know that these packages are in zip file format, and these zip files contain a script (which tells the recovery where to change the system file) and the core contents of the package. Also these packages can contain anything.

You can install an app, many apps together, boot animation changes, some system library changes, patch your boot image, want to root your phone, etc. All this can be done by sideloading the zip file in TWRP. You can even install the latest version of Android operating system which was not officially possible, we are talking about firmware or custom ROM here.

With the install image option you can install IMG file instead of zip file. If you want to install GSI (generic system image) instead of custom compiled ROM on your phone, restore your stock boot image recovery or update TWRP from recovery option, in all these cases you can install using image file instead of zip file.

You can also wipe your phone using TWRP Recovery. However, this is a different type of wipe option from the normal, average recovery menu from your phone’s system settings. Although using this recovery you can wipe normally and in this case you will only be allowed to do a factory reset, and when you Advanced Wipe When you go into mode, you will see more options in this feature. Moreover, if you want, you can delete any partition of your phone from this option.

TWRP Recovery not only gives you the option to delete data partitions, but also gives you more advanced options, using which you can delete most of your phone’s personal data as well as system partitions (where the operating system is stored). You can also delete cache and Dalvik / ART cache partitions.

Among these options, the ones you will often use are: data, cache, and Dalvik / ART cache delete options. In some cases, you may need to delete the system partition before installing a custom ROM (although most ROMs will delete the system partition for you during the installation process).

TWRP Recovery gives you the option to create a full backup of any partition on your device. And these options are often called “NANDroid backups” and they will undoubtedly be the best option for all your modding.

You can also back up a specific partition on your device, such as a system partition or boot partition, and once it is backed up, you can easily restore it at any time.

This is a very useful option because you have mistakenly done something on your phone so the phone is no longer on or booting or the phone is not working. And so NANDroid backup works like a checkpoint, you can go back to the previous state at any time.

The restore feature is the opposite of the backup feature. This means that you can backup system partitions with the backup feature and with the restore feature you can restore the NANDroid backup file and restore your device to its previous state.

The mount feature of TWRP Recovery allows you to manually mount and unmount partitions on your device. This will allow you to access all the files on the partition you are mounting.

Partition mounting is very important for TWRP recovery to work, as packages need to be sidloaded, read, or written. However, in most cases, partition mounting and unmounting do not have to be done manually. This is because most of the zip packages will automatically mount and unmount the required partitions without any interference from the users.

This is the setting menu of TWRP Recovery. There are many more options for NANDroid backups including MD5 verification, UI / UX element change, display brightness or vibration reduction.

There are some important options like: instead of regular formatting rm -rf To use etc. However, these settings are mostly user interface-centric settings that do not affect the basic functionality of TWRP recovery, although these may vary slightly depending on the model and other features of your device.

The Advanced menu provides a variety of functionality in TWRP Recovery, even if not listed separately. Some of the features of these settings are TWRP install, terminal, alternative flashing method instead of file manager which ADB Sideload You can also use.

There are some developer or advanced features that you may need or not, and the features may change depending on your device.

The latest option is reboot, and with this reboot menu you can reboot your phone. In addition to having the option to reboot your operating system, you can reboot in fastboot mode, reboot in recovery mode, etc. through this TWRP recovery.
