Default [VM/PRIMOC][RECOVERY] TWRP2 Recovery 7-10-2012

Code:
#include /* * Your warranty is now void. * * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. */
*YOU NEED TO BE HTC UNLOCKED TO FLASH A CUSTOM RECOVERY!!!!!!*
If you are ONLY HTC unlocked you will need to follow the fastboot method to install, if you are HTC unlocked AND rooted, you can use the goo manager method.

Introduction:

Team Win Recovery Project 2.1, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.




Key Features:
  • Touchscreen driven with real buttons and drag-to-scroll
  • XML-based GUI that allows full customization of the layout – true theming!
  • Settings are saved to the sdcard and persist through reboots
  • Ability to choose which partitions to back up and which to restore
  • Ability to choose to compress backups – now with pigz (multi-core processor support for faster compression times)

What's new in 2.1:
  • Zip queuing as seen in TWRP 1.1.x is back
  • Slider control (swipe to confirm most actions aka swipe to wipe)
  • Lockscreen (with slider to unlock)
  • Basic file manager (copy, move, delete, and chmod any file)
  • Added support for devices with /data/media (most Honeycomb tablets, new ICS devices like Galaxy Nexus)
  • Displays sizes of each partition in the backup menu
  • Added listbox GUI element (currently used for listing time zones)
  • Updated stock XML layouts to be more consistent and easier to port to different resolutions
  • XML layout files are significantly smaller
  • Partitions available backup are more accurate for some devices
  • Removed unneeded error messages (/misc errors, unable to stat sd-ext, etc.)
  • Fixed a bug with blkid detection code
  • Fixed bug where a blank line was inserted between every line of text during zip installs
  • Fixed a bug during zip installs where an invalid zip would cause TWRP to get stuck in the zip install
  • Added setting for themers to toggle simulation mode to make theming easier
  • New devices added - Galaxy Nexus GSM & CDMA (preview only, manual install), Acer Iconia Tab A500, HTC Vivid, Motorola Defy
  • Added support for .jpg images in the theme engine
  • Changed images for stock tablet theme - makes tablet builds about 500KB smaller
  • Removed unneeded non-GUI images from GUI - makes all builds about 100KB smaller
In addition to the above new features, TWRP 2.1.0 now features a scripting engine that allows an app to send commands to the recovery for the recovery to perform during startup. We call this scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript. This engine will be put to use immediately in the GooManager app. GooManager will be able to install recoveries automatically for most supported devices. The app will also let you choose to install multiple zips from within Android, wipe cache & dalvik, and run a backup.

HTC Dumlock -- Now flash kernels in recovery without S-off

TWRP 2 Instructions:
  1. Install the build of TWRP using your method of choice, but you must actually flash TWRP to recovery. No fastboot booting it. We need it in recovery so that this build of TWRP will be flashed to your boot. This new build of TWRP has features in it to easily restore your original boot.
  2. Reboot into recovery.
  3. Make a backup of your phone.
  4. Tap Advanced.
  5. Tap HTC Dumlock. (If you don't see HTC Dumlock then you need to remove any custom TWRP theme that you might be using.)
  6. Tap Install HTC Dumlock. This will install the app and binaries needed to make everything work nicely.
  7. Reboot your device.
  8. Find and open the HTC Dumlock app.
  9. If/when prompted, give the app root (SuperUser) permissions.
  10. Tap the Execute HTC Dumlock button.
  11. Wait patiently for a couple of minutes. It takes a little while.
  12. If your device doesn't reboot automatically, reboot it manually. Reboot it normally. DO NOT reboot it to recovery.
  13. You should now be in your recovery, but your recovery is flashed into boot.
  14. Tap Advanced.
  15. Tap HTC Dumlock.
  16. Tap Restore Original Boot.
  17. Use your recovery like normal. Flash a new kernel. Restore a backup with a different kernel. Do whatever you please!
  18. Consider donating!
Note, you must repeat steps 8 through 18 EVERY TIME you need to flash boot.

Thanks for this. The CWM recovery wasn't working for me, so I flashed this one and it worked. Nice UI too, looks very ICS.

Question. Can we use this recovery to flash the root zip listed in the root section or do I have to have the cwm recovery? I couldn't get the cwm recovery to work for me. Probably user error! Atleast I got this one to work so I could get me a backup. Thanks. Really like the recovery

Ok, when I go to flash the supersu root in this recovery I get a message saying "this my make your phone not operational"(or something like that). My question, is that a normal message on this recovery and I should carry on, or should I stop?

Can I just use TWRP for recovery, backup and restore? What is the purpose of installing Dumlock? What is s-off, I see it everywhere. Sorry if this is really a noob question.

Thanks for the TWRP, it is really smooth. I am more custom to CWR, never reallize there about your work. Thanks again,

TIA,

bun
