TWRP released for the HTC EVO 4G LTE, 4G, 3D, others

Team Win Recovery ProjectTeam Win’s Recovery Project has been updated to TWRP, bringing about a merge of recent AOSP/Android 4.3 patches to the application.

Since we last checked in on TWRP for the HTC EVO 4G LTE (and others) in February of this year, the developers have added encryption options which can lock down your backed up data, and TWRP now supports the newest exFAT commits (although I don’t think we have any ROMs that use exFAT at the moment). The bundled SuperSU has been updated to an Android 4.3 working version that you can install via recovery, and the ability to grab ROM names for backup name generation was added, along with a lot of stomped bugs.

There’s not a lot of feedback in the development thread over on XDA about this yet, so it might be wise to wait a couple of days before going to the newest version of this recovery unless you absolutely have to have it right this very minute. Just keep in mind that Team Win is maintaining over 40 devices, and sometimes you just want to let the other users be the guinea pigs.

You can download and install the recovery in seconds via GooManager’s install OpenRecovery option, or you can head over to Team Win’s website and download the newest .img directly from the source and flash it yourself. Although the .imgs for all the EVO line have been updated, it does not appear the PG86IMG method for the EVO 3D has been touched in quite a while. Now if Team Win could just get TWRP for my Nook Color, which is already running Android 4.3, I’d be a happy camper.

Have fun and happy flashing!
