TWRP ported to Dell Streak 7

Twrp_streak7

We all love our Dell Streak 7s, but one thing that was missing was TWRP: the Team Win Recovery Project. This is a highly-customizable, touch-enabled recovery software for Android. 

Like I said, this awesome piece of software was missing from our 7-inch Streaks for the longest time, but thanks to Giveen, that's no longer the case. Last Friday, Giveen successfully ported TWRP to the Streak 7, allowing users of the tablet to finally access those advanced settings that TWRP offers.

Giveen  says that the following list of features works:

  • Boots
  • Landscape mode
  • Touch
  • Backup to internal and external
  • USB mount (provided Streak 7 ADB drivers are installed and you use 'adb shell')
  • Restore from internal storage 

Please note that this is only for ICS-B4, but that there have been a few people who've tried it on custom Honeycomb images with success, as well. Let us know in the comments how it works for you!

[TabletROMs] Thanks, Giveen!

  • Just noticed that Streaksmart has been merged into Pocketables…

    What a shame. Relegated.

    The Streak is dead. Long live the streak!

  • Actually, I’ll go further…

    Seeing the Streaksmart website go down is the last nail in the coffin for me.

    I’ll order a contract galaxy note tomorrow.

    Goodbye Streak :(

    The Streak is dead.

    Long live the Streak!

      I think you’ll love the Galaxy Note. I’ve had the international version since December and still think it’s what the Streak 2/Opus One should have been.

      • I’m sure I will – I’ll be getting the same version since I’m in UK – shame it has a button – I like the buttonless one better.

        Real shame that Streaksmart has gone :( A sign of how things move on I guess.

        Thanks for a great site when it was up though.

  • i too was aka austreak until the note came out. Been using uk version since nov last year and the button is great imo. Takes u back instantly too main menu with feedback.
    Yes, the note is the best currently exceeding the galaxy s3 due to the gorgeous screen.
    Will definitely upgrade to note 2 5.5inch screen quad when it comes out, hopefully not a rumour
