Heres my first port of Team Win Recovery Project 2


Dont have much time today, so here is a very make do post, that I'll update later..

openrecovery-twrp-2.1.2-hwu8815.img MD5: 5e3e2ad5534ddd404f745e22d740d67e

openrecovery-twrp-2.1.2-hwu8815-update_signed.zip MD5: 18f6d17715c23a5e33f0e9fa6f5bc99e


The same method of installation etc as Clocwork Mod, check out that post for more details.


Also, if you have Clockwork Mod Recovery already installed you can use the update.zip to switch it, and visa versa.

nice :)

I have to admit I'd never heard of it before,(had to google it then watched a few Youtube Vids on it)

Do you think this is better than CWM imo?

As soon as the phones charged I'll give it a go. Cheers mate :)


EDIT: All went well flashing the image with fastboot, This is loads better then CWM, especially as the G300 version has tiny text that can be hard to read when your getting tired.

If like me you installed the B884 or B886 rom and found SU has gone then you can flash the zip on this thread
http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1538053 and get it back.

yes, use the update.zip file as if it where a ROM. the same goes for the update.zip for Clockwork Mod if you hate it and want to go back

It's different... It's more 'noob' friendly.. and considering I had a number of people who could work out which phycialy key to use to select menus in CWMR I'm hoping nice big buttons to press are going to be better for some..

The good thing too, if I can get it accepted as an offical build, it will make it even easier since you'll be able to flash it directly from GooManager, That's all good

The problem I was having was to do with Multi Touch, the kernel presents 2 touches, and the recovery code drops the first touch and uses the 2nd one.. which means when your only using 1 finger....

Im not sure if thats on purpose or not, since I dont have any of the 'offical' supported devices I cant test it out, but I have posted the modified code on github.

It's OK. Huawei always say this because the person answering the emails thinks we are after the Android source code. The kernel code is always published but can take a few months :(

I've wanted to try the TeamWin recovery for a while because mashing the volume keys each time I use CWM bugs me, and I must say I'm impressed and think I be staying with TWRP. :D

Thank you!

Nice recovery!

It really is! I've been playing about with it and the fact they have a file manager directly in the recovery (advanced > file manager) is genius. :ph34r:

Have you tested that nandroid backups recover successfully using it? (Bad experience with it on another device)
