    Does this actually include the rom?

    I guess so, but still want to make sure.

    As in, can it be used to switch between ROMs via backup / restore procedure?

    And yes, I searched the forums but some answers are a bit vague :)

    Yes and yes, just like any other custom recovery. Only thing you need to be aware of is if you install vrt based themes you might need to download the zipalign script from the TWRP site.

    Not sure there are any for N7 (yet), but know for SGS3 that themes based on VillianRom Theme Engine eg Moto moto or JB Domination don't install correctly using TWPR recovery for SGS3, unless you replace the zipalign file in theme zip. Something to do with dynamic links - CWM based recoveries work fine.

    Just might be same with N7 and TWRP recovery, if the theme you have works then all good :)

    Ah fair, thanks. Should be fine then .. I have two different backups (two different ROMS / Kernel) but I think I leave "trying" until I need to :)

    My setup took ages and I certainly don't want to risk breaking anything lol ..
