CWM or TWRP?

7 posts in this topic

Posted

I have just unlocked and rooted my Nexus 7 using the nexus root toolkit. I also installed a recovery. I then downloaded Paul's excellent custom rom which I tried to install using ClockworkMod but it wasn't there!. The recovery installed was TWRP which worked ok but I was expecting CWM. Is TWRP a replacement for CWM?

No TWRP is an alternative recovery.

I have never used it but a friend swears by it.

I was curious enough to switch from CWM to TWRP (it's kind of hard to leave all your backups of all the fine ROMs configured and all behind :( But sometimes you need to say good bye to things to learn new stuff :)

And I have to say I don't really regret the change. The UI is much better then the CWM one (even the CWM Touch version). Everything works alright especially Backup and Restore doesn't make any problems (which is rather important to me because I like to switch between ROMs).

A big advantage of TWRP is the possibility to encrypt your device and still use the recovery.
