TWRP 2.4 released with extensive set of new features
TWRP 2.4 now available for a slew of Android devices
The fine folks from Team Win have released an update to Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP), adding a ton of new features, tweaks, and bugfixes. Before you rush off to grab the latest bump, let’s take a quick look at what’s new in version 188.8.131.52, shall we?
- Using libtar instead of busybox’s tar for better control over tar file creation and breaking the 2GB barrier that busybox imposes (thanks to bigbiff)
- Support for exFAT formatted sdcards (also thanks to bigbiff)
- Support for decrypting Samsung TouchWiz encrypted devices including internal and external storage (special thanks to a3955269 for figuring it out)
- Improvements to OpenRecoveryScript including displaying a proper GUI while the script is running
- Added wipe cache and dalvik after ADB Sideload
- Replaced many system calls with their native C counterparts
- Fixed bugs in file manager where it would display an empty list after moving or deleting a folder
- Fixed AOSP recovery commands to run after decryption on encrypted devices
- Improvements for building TWRP in CM10.1
- Other minor bugfixes and improvements
Generally, the easiest way to install TWRP is by using the GooManager app. Unfortunately, the system is currently experiencing an error which blocks the automated install process, so you’ll need to follow the manual install directions listed on your device page at the source link below.
