Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) updated to 2.1.0 for rooted HTC EVO

Twrp20Team Win released an update to its graphical custom recovery that brings back many of the features version 2.0 was missing from the 1.x series, as well as the touch-based interface for the HTC EVO 4G that originally had some issues and had been removed from the site.

TWRP 2.1.0 brings back the ability to select multiple items to install, adds a basic file manager, fixes several bugs, and adds JPG support to the theme engine, among many other things. The team has also added a scripting engine for future developers' ROMs to do OTA-style updates.

It's nice to see some TWRP development still going on since the main developer left to work on a different recovery project, but after my experiences with a radio-bricked EVO 4G, I'll probably stay away for now and let others do the testing.

It will be interesting to see if Team Win will step up to take on 4EXT for graphical recovery dominance, as the latter is not too far behind in terms of overall functionality. If they add a method to flash recovery from Android mode and incorporate 4EXT's SmartFlash for S-ON kernel flashing, which was based on Team Win's Dumlock, then it's right back on top as far as user experience is concerned.

TWRP works on the HTC EVO 4G, CDMA and GSM versions of the EVO 3D, and something called the EVO Shift, which we don't talk about in mixed company.
