TeamWin calls it quits on the Recovery Project
After a parting with one of the developers (Agrabren), TeamWin has decided to call it quits on TWRP 2.0, their newly released groundbreaking graphical, multi-threaded, themeable, compressing recovery project. TeamWin historically has been about innovation and doing what others say can't be done.
The existing TWRP will go on and be phased into a new product, currently unnamed, with Agrabren at the helm maintaining and fixing TWRP 2.0 while he works on Phoenix, which is what TWRP 3.0 evidently was slated to be.
It's not too much of a surprise that development on 2.0 is being halted considering the announcement in November on the TeamWin blog that they would be abandoning TWRP 2.0 after release for TWRP 3.0, which would be a total re-write.
For most of us, this doesn't mean much more than a re-branding (as older TWRP backups will be supported), some minor graphics changes, and that one developer will control it all. It should be interesting to see what Phoenix brings to the table.[phx-recovery]
