    So I just updated today to twrp 1.1.1 and now I hear there is a twrp2 should I go ahead and switch to the t2 version? I read it was touch screen operated, aside from that I couldn't tell if anything else is different.

    I couldn't find patch notes. But I like the touch screen UI, so I switched. Just haven't played with it too much, yet.

    Ah, found the patch notes:

    Oh my... That looks really nice!

    I never restore anything anyway so it looks like it's time to ditch 1.0.3. :)

    Very nice... Backups are done in less than a quarter of the time. There are a few bugs detailed in the xda thread but none have affected me so far. They all seem minor against the huge improvements in form and function. I like it.

    Yeah, the patch notes mentioned that NANDroid backups utilize both cores, which is just phenomenal.

    Thanks for the replies ya'll. I went ahead and flashed twrp2 and everything is at least twice as fast. And that's great for a ROM hopper like me, but I gotta say cm7 butchered the recovery.img and I had to reflash the recovery. Thank god its impossible to brick this phone. That would have been the fourth time it nearly happened with cyanogen for me. But all-in-all the twrp2 is great.

    I even loaded twrp 2.0 on my Kindle Fire last night. It works just as flawlessly there as it does on my e3d. Those guys amaze me...

    After playing with TWRP2, there are some things I miss from TWRP 1.1. Like the ability to queue zip files and the wipe cache/dalvik from the install menu (it shows up after you flash the first file...which is odd).

    Trying to wade through all the posts on XDA is near impossible. I wish people could just hit the Thanks button instead of posting a thanks message, but meh...

    There is a github account for submitting feedback, I think I'll do that later when I'm home from work. Posting a link for my own reference: https://github.com/TeamWin/Team-Win-Recovery-Project/issues

    Quick question about ya'lls prossess do you command an recovery erase before flashing a new recovery. If so how? I'm so used to erasing things before flashing the new stuff and just wondering if I should do that recovery too.

    All I do to change recoveries is drop the pc86img.zip file on the root of the sd card and boot into the bootloader. It does everything else for you automatically. I don't wipe the old recovery because it overwrites what's there on it's own.

    I have hboot 1.50 so its a bit more intricate than that, I've used flash image GUI to do a recovery image before but i feel the recovery "sticks" better through fastboot. I just figured if i did command
    fastboot erase recovery
    And then
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    It would all work better what do you think

    Yes, erase the recovery before flashing the new one. The zip file that most of us use does that for us.

    ok so i had issues with twrp on my og evo that i'm now scared to use 2.0 on my evo 3d. you can read about my issues here:xda-developers - View Single Post - [RECOVERY] TeamWin Recovery Project (TWRP) 2.0RC0.3 [2012-1-4].

    but it also looks like twrp 2.0 will not get any more support:( also teamwin and agrabren are now parting ways:( TeamWin Blog | TeamWin. however, agrabren is now working on his own and is planning on working on a version of twrp 2.0 and he is calling it for now phoenix:) you can read his blog here:Rebooting in Recovery: TWRP: The final chapter...

    so it is back to 1.1 for me until phoenix is out.
