Default Bad TWRP recovery?

Before flashing a rom, I wiped cache, dalvik cache, system and factory reset using TWRP. But after I flash the ROM instead of all of my apps being gone most of them are still there. This is not normal, right? I think I need to re flash my recovery or is this a problem with TWRP. Should I use clockwork?

Reflash the recovery. This isn't normal and has never happened to me.

Boot into recovery and it will tell you at the top of the screen what version of TWRP you have.

I would try pushing recovery again. You may also want to download the recovery again, you may have gotten a bad download.

TWRP is up to 2.2.0 at this point, may want to flash that. Here's a link to Team Win's site where you can download the image file and flash through fastboot. Let us know if you need any help. You can also dl/flash TWRP through Goo Manager. That is the easier way of installation.

Typically if you downloaded the zip file you'll have an option to flash....If you have the img file, I would just flash in fastboot. Have you ever flashed an img file through fastboot?

img file is what was on the TWRP site. I'm sure I have, just don't remember how. I can look it up unless you can take a minute.

No problem. It's easy enough to explain.

1. First you wanna dl fastboot (if you haven't already), here's the link.

2. Extract the Fastboot.zip file to the C:\ drive on your computer to get a folder named Fastboot with four files inside it.

3. Copy the .img file downloaded (TWRP 2.2.0) to the Fastboot folder on C drive. You should have 5 files in the Fastboot folder now.

4. Enter fastboot mode. To do this, turn off the phone, then press and hold the following keys together: Power + Volume Up and Down. You will enter Fastboot mode. Then connect your phone to the computer once you are in fastboot mode.

5. Open Command Prompt on your computer from Start All Programs Accessories.

6. Now, type the following commands in command prompt, pressing Enter after each command (check screenshot for reference).

1. cd c:\Fastboot

2. fastboot devices (this is to ensure the phone gets
detected. A string of numbers and letters should
appear if the phone is properly detected, as shown in
screenshot below. Else, make sure the phone drivers
are properly installed)



7. Now, in the same command prompt window, type the following command, replacing the _____ with the name of the file you downloaded, and press Enter to flash TWRP recovery:
fastboot flash recovery _______.img

8. TWRP recovery will be flashed. After it finishes, type fastboot reboot in the command prompt window to reboot your phone.

If you used the guide on here to root (or probably any other not one click root guide) you should already have fastboot installed. Also if you are using a Mac or Linux make sure you use the ./fastboot instead of just fastboot.

okay. thank you for the very detailed directions. I had no problems. I checked goo manager and I have the new recovery.
I followed the QBKing youtube videos to root so this was a little different. I really prefer to have written instructions.
I miss my og Evo but it is a comfort seeing old friends over here. Now as Ocean says "I'm going to go get my flash on". Thanks a million.

No worries! Was this the first time (outside of when you rooted) you flashed something in fastboot? If so, it's a great thing to learn how to do! I prefer flashing things via fastboot over zip files when it's available, files are less likely to get corrupt while flashing if done this way; zip files can.

Yes, I usually flash zips. Do ROMs come as image files too?

I don't think so. I'm sure they can be but I've never flashed a ROM via fastboot. Kernel's and recoveries are the most common things I flash in fastboot.
